We are MadeSafe Certified! July 03, 2016 21:02
We have big news: Our products have been MADE SAFE certified!
We’ve been pioneering safer products for years, and we’re so proud to prove it with this revolutionary new certification. It's another way we are working to have the best ingredient safety and disclosure practices in the cleaning products industry. (See more information on that here and here.)
This seal means that products are made without known carcinogens, behavioral, reproductive, and neuro toxins, hormone disruptors, heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides, flame retardants, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs and more! It also means that product ingredients have been examined for concerns for whether they build up in the environment or our bodies, and for general and aquatic toxicity.
In short, it means that we’re leading the way in making products that without ingredients known to harm human health.
So why is this important? Unfortunately, there are tens of thousands of chemicals in use right now in products we use every day; very few of them have been studied and some have been linked to some serious health problems.
Combined with confusing marketing claims like “green” or “eco” (which don’t actually mean anything about how safe or healthy a product is!), this means that people have been stuck trying to figure out which products are actually safe and which ones aren’t – which is almost impossible!
The MADE SAFE seal aims to solve this problem. Finally, you have the power to easily find trusted, certified products that are made without known harmful chemicals. We’re so proud to put that power in your hands! See which products are certified MADE SAFE on our website at www.meliorameansbetter.com/madesafe.
With this seal, we’re leading the way to change how products are made in this country: safer and healthier. By buying MADE SAFE, you can help us bring about this change. Together we can eliminate toxic chemicals altogether!
Look for this seal on our products in stores and on our website, as well as on www.madesafe.org.
