color of disposable diapers is typically achieved
through the addition of color pigments to their
inner and outer cover materials. This is also true
for Seventh Generation diapers. While most designs
on the market use pigments that result in a white
color, we use a small amount of blended color
pigments to impart a tan color to our diapers. The
blend is proprietary to the supplier of the pigment.
To the best of our knowledge, there are no known
toxicity issues associated with the use of these
pigments in our diapers. Without the addition of
color pigments, these materials would be colorless,
much like a plastic milk jug. We use brown pigments
to help distinguish Seventh Generation Chlorine Free
Diapers from others in the marketplace that are
bleached with chlorine-containing substances.
disposable diapers, including Seventh Generation’s,
rely on man-made materials to deliver the high-level
performance that parents expect of modern diapers.
These materials are mostly petroleum-derived and are
not renewable, which adversely impacts the
environmental footprint associated with these
products. At Seventh Generation, we are pleased to
offer an alternative that is not bleached with
chemicals containing chlorine, and are working hard
to further improve the sustainability of our diaper
The wood pulp used in our diapers has not been
processed with chemicals containing chlorine.
This prevents dangerous chlorinated toxins from
being released into the environment through the
pulp production process.
