Seventh Generation has purchased sustainable palm kernel oil certification credits to offset company wide use of the ingredient across its entire product line.

The company says it is the first in its industry in North America to make such purchases. Seventh generation says it is paying a premium to palm kernel oil producers that produce and harvest their products using more environmentally responsible practices.

In February, Greenpeace recommended Seventh Generation’s toilet paper as a greener alternative that doesn’t eliminate ancient forests or use toxic chlorine compounds. Here is Seventh Generation’s Corporate Consciousness Report.

SC Johnson, another maker of household cleaning products, is also becoming more sustainable. The company is working with its supply chain partners to eliminate the use of any phthalates in the fragrances supplied to the company. It is also working to be more transparent about the ingredients used in its products.

SC Johnson has pledged to make its product’s ingredient information available via telephone, online and on product labels that will be phased in for all air care and home cleaning products.
