At MADE SAFE® we are working to create a world in which harmful and polluting chemicals and substances are eliminated from use, even in the absence of regulation. The uniquely rigorous MADE SAFE Certification process helps steer the market away from the use of thousands of harmful and polluting substances in consumer goods. This work protects our planet and its inhabitants for generations to come.
All MADE SAFE Certified products have been carefully crafted to omit ingredients known or suspected to cause harm to human health or animals, aquatic life, or the environment. This thorough examination of impact is what we refer to as the “ecosystem” in our work. In addition to screening for more than 6,500 known toxic substances, every substance within a product (and sub ingredient) is assessed for impact on the ecosystem, evaluating whether it will bioaccumulate; persist in the water, sediment, or soil; contribute to air pollution; or cause harm to aquatic life or wildlife.
We are launching a fundraiser this holiday season with the goal of $10,000.
We will be hosting an exclusive virtual Meet + Greet with MADE SAFE Founder and Executive Director, Amy Ziff on Tuesday, January 11 2022 at 12 PM EST for all donations of $125 or more made through our website. You can donate today, or any day, through December 31, 2021.
MADE SAFE works with world-renowned scientists, using a hazard-based approach to identify potentially problematic ingredients and encourage substitution. If there is doubt about an ingredient’s toxicity, MADE SAFE exercises the precautionary principle and prohibits it. The MADE SAFE approach flips the current regulatory model of innocent until proven guilty, on its head.
We bring world-class science to companies of every size. By providing this robust, scientific information, we can foster products that are being made with ingredients for a safe and sustainable future.
We are incredibly thankful to the companies who are making MADE SAFE Certified products and to those consumers who are voting with their wallets for a safe and sustainable tomorrow by purchasing and using MADE SAFE Certified products. We can all participate in forging an economy that prizes better products – and this gives everyone a way to rise to this call.
While we are proud of the work we’ve accomplished since we began, we recognize that there is so much more to be done! The time is now. It is imperative that we foster a future without harmful, polluting chemistries. MADE SAFE cannot do this alone. We need your generous support.
Please consider joining in our MADE SAFE work and making us a part of your charitable giving.
