In June 2018, we committed to following the Health First Roadmap and are ready to share the preliminary results of our self-assessment.
The Health First Roadmap is published by Women’s Voices for the Earth and contains specific benchmarks for company performance in four categories:
We're sharing details about one Category each week. Check out the links above for more details on the other Categories. This week we'll discuss Chemicals Assessment.
Category: Chemicals Assessment
Current State: HEALTH FIRST
Explanation for Current State:
We use a third party screening process called MADESAFE®. This screening process is the strictest in the cleaning products industry. MADE SAFE® screens for known behavioral toxins, carcinogens, developmental toxins, endocrine disruptors, fire retardants, heavy metals, neurotoxins, high risk pesticides, reproductive toxins, toxic solvents, and harmful VOCs.
"MADE SAFE® is America’s first nontoxic seal for products we use every day, from baby to personal care to household and beyond. We certify that products you use on your body, with your family, and in your home are made with safe ingredients not known or suspected to harm human health."
For a small and relatively new cleaning product brand, we believe that working with trusted third parties such as MADE SAFE® is the best way to fulfill our promise to making safe products, without requiring the extensive research and investment of having an in-house staff of environmental scientists and toxicologists. Relying on a third party assessment means that we can ensure our ingredient lists are safe and focus on making products.
