Most TreeHuggers know about Seventh Generation. For 20 years, they've been making future-friendly cleaning products, and their product lineup includes something to help you clean just about every room in the house.

That's notable, but this award is for decisions and actions that go beyond how available the products are, and how well the cleaners work in your house.

Seventh Generation gets the nod for their ongoing efforts to reformulate in order to be safer and greener, for their industry leadership in disclosing ingredients, and for their ability to innovate and redesign their packaging -- their 4X Laundry Detergent, pictured, features an outer shell made from 70 percent recycled cardboard fibers and 30 percent old newspaper fibers.

They're one of the originals, but Seventh Generation has proven they can change, for the better, with the times.
