BURLINGTON, VT -- (Marketwire) -- 10/04/2012 -- Seventh Generation, the nation's number one brand of non-toxic household and personal care products, has reached a historic social media milestone: It was officially "liked" on Facebook by its one millionth fan.
To commemorate reaching a million "likes" and express its appreciation to everyone who made this monster of a moment possible, the company is celebrating with a serious monstrosity of its own: A special online thank-you video posted to its Facebook page that shows its one million new friends how to recycle Seventh Generation packaging into their very own one-of-a-kind DIY box monsters.
The unique animated video was concocted with a little help from their good friend Brian Yanish, the founder and creative director of ScrapKins, an online pack of clever beasts who build their world out of the things we throw away. It shows how a Seventh Generation Facial Tissue Box and a cardboard core from a roll of its Recycled Paper Towels can be combined with a few simple tools and a couple of quick minutes to create a friendly neighborhood box monster.
The company is inviting everyone to get in on the fun, make their own box monster, and share a photo of their cardboard critter. Seventh Generation will then feature these creatures on its Facebook page. "Every healthy home needs a box monster," said Seventh Generation Communications Director, Chrystie Heimert. "They're not just a neat way to celebrate our millionth fan. They're a great symbol of how we can change things for the better -- like turning trash into treasures -- when we all decide to work together."
