Through work within our industry, advocacy for progressive social and environmental policies, high product standards, transparency, and our donations and volunteering, our company continues to be a catalyst for good. We give both cash and product generously to non-profit organizations working to make the world a better place. In 2012, we formalized our corporate giving program with the formation of the Seventh Generation Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to care today for seven generations of tomorrows by stewarding social and environmental progress in the communities where we live, work and do business through education, environmental conservation, research and advocacy. We aspire to achieve our mission by making grants to non-profit 501c3 organizations that promote and improve environmental conservation, the sustainable use of natural resources and human health and social welfare. 6.3% 207% 77% 12% $435,600 $102,600 $313,600 ’12 $274,909 Donations seventhgeneration.com/2012report   35 Building Communities
