Every fall, MADE SAFE partners with GOOD HOUSEKEEPING to co-host our sustainability summit. The intention of the event is to inspire attendees to go back to their companies and raise the green bar.
What does it mean to raise the green bar? Every company arrives for the day at a different point in their eco journey – from those who are brand new to sustainability to those who are at the forefront of green and clean. Regardless of where each company falls on the green spectrum, we can all strive to deepen our efforts in health and sustainability.
The day is jam-packed with speakers, panels, and conversation to foster innovation, passion, dedication, and determination to do better. We think you’ll find the day’s conversation inspiring too! Keep an eye on MADE SAFE’s social media to watch the speakers and panels live. Here are some speaker highlights to watch for:
