As a member of the Generation Good™ community, you get to enjoy experiencing a product, at times for free, and the ability to share your opinions with other community members. As part of your membership, you agree to always be honest, never mislead and always try to provide valuable and authentic opinions. Your opinions must be compliance with this Disclosure and Member Code of Conduct or your membership may be terminated.
Disclosure, for the purposes of this Disclosure and Member Code of Conduct, means that you must make it known to others, when you provide a comment or opinion about a product, that you have received that product or brand experience for free as a Generation Good™ community member.
How do I properly disclose?
You must always clearly communicate that you were compensated with a free product in exchange for your honest review of the product. Being “clear” includes:
• Placing your disclosure at the top or beginning of your comment or opinion, separate from the rest of your comment or opinion.
• Ensuring that the disclosure is the same size text as your comment or opinion.
• Ensuring that the disclosure is a color that is as noticeable as your comment or opinion.
An example of how you can do this is to include the following phrase at the beginning of your review:
"#ad I received [product name] for free from the Generation Good™ community."
If posting to a micro-blog site such as twitter, you must add the #ad at the beginning of your post. For example:
"#ad Loved trying [product name]. I would definitely recommend this. Check it out"
Using hashtags will allow you to devote more space to your review without having to worry about character limits - allowing more of your voice to be heard.
(Note that when you share to Facebook and Twitter using the sharing tools located on your mission page, such a phrase will be included automatically. )
We will never tell you what to say about a product. You are free to speak from actual personal experience in your own words. Be sure to fully experience the product and take time to form your opinions. Your feedback matters and people will listen to you. Disclosing that you have received a free product ensures that your opinions and reviews are seen as credible and trustworthy to your friends and network.
Disclosure is an important part of being a Generation Good™ community member. Disclosing that you have received a free product means you're following guidelines set by the Federal Trade Commission regarding endorsements. Following these guidelines will help you to enjoy your community membership and all that it brings.

Questions? Please ask us at GenerationGood@seventhgeneration.com
We have some basic rules of engagement we would like to share. They’re really common sense and should be nothing new to you. But we want to make sure we’re clear regarding what type of conduct is acceptable in our community. We expect all members to follow these guidelines so please take a minute to read them and keep them in mind whenever you participate.
Because we want to hear from you and all of our community members, we encourage comments, critiques, questions and suggestions. We simply ask that you stay on topic, post content and commentary that is relevant, respect other people’s opinions, avoid profanity and offensive statements, refrain from posting illegal content, and please do not post any personal information such as your email address or phone number. Specifically, we will not accept posts that are:
o Abusive, harassing or threatening to others
o Defamatory, obscene, vulgar or depicting violence
o Hateful, racist, sexist or discriminatory in any way
o Fraudulent, deceptive, misleading or unlawful
o Spamming in nature
o Link baiting (embedding a link in your post to draw traffic to your own site)
o Infringing someone else’s trademark, copyright, or other intellectual property rights
Please note that photos, whether emailed to the Seventh Generation team or posted on the community, will not be accepted if vulgar, depicting violence, obscene, offensive (racist, sexist or in any way discriminatory) or off-topic. The Seventh Generation team has the right to refuse publication of any photo it deems inappropriate or irrelevant for the community.
We also will not tolerate the uploading of files that contain viruses or programs that could damage the operation of other people’s computers or are deliberately disruptive. We also will not tolerate the use of our community to sell products, solicit money, or recruit fans or followers.
Please understand that conduct outside of these guidelines will result in your comment being removed, and possibly, you being banned from the Generation Good community. We actively moderate and engage this community so if your login doesn’t appear, there’s a good chance that you’ve violated one of the conditions above.
We’re here to have real conversations with you—our consumers—so please come share your thoughts and opinions. This is a place for us to talk with one another, so let’s get started!
