Sustainable Packaging

 

MADE SAFE® Certified Products with Sustainable Packaging

At MADE SAFE we look at all aspects of toxicity when we screen a product’s ingredients. We consider human health and environmental harm as well as animal and aquatic life harm. Taking all of this into account is what makes our ecosystem evaluation, conducted under MADE SAFE’s proprietary screening, unique and comprehensive. We don’t permit ingredients that will harm ocean life, pollinators, birds and many more creatures that are particularly impacted by the plastic pollution problem today.

No matter how we look at it, single-use-plastic can no longer be justified. Each of us must take it on ourselves to refuse plastic wherever and whenever possible. The solution starts with each of us. While we recognize that going to zero-waste takes a lot of time and thought (and may not be possible for everyone), reducing and refusing is a crucial starting point. In this new section we are highlighting companies that are going the extra mile beyond just MADE SAFE ingredients to package their products using renewable, sustainable and more responsible packaging. Some of this packaging contains a minimal amount of plastic and has been marked with a + sign while while products not packaged in plastic are marked with a ø.

We’re providing this MADE SAFE certified products with sustainable packaging area so shoppers can easily find options packed largely in glass, bamboo, or using other creative alternatives. Whenever possible, we hope you will continue to use your hard-earned dollars to support companies offering MADE SAFE certified products who are making better, safer, more sustainable products for a future where humans and all creatures can thrive.


KEY
ø  products not packaged in plastic
+  packaging contains a minimal amount of plastic

NOTE: At this time, MADE SAFE does not certify packaging. However, because companies with MADE SAFE certified products are conscious of their impacts on human and environmental health, they typically make thoughtful decisions about product packaging. If you would like additional information about product packaging, reach out to the individual company in which you’re interested.

Gifts to Inspire Self-Care

 
“Self-care” is definitely a 2019 buzzword. But the attention it has received is well-deserved. So many of us don’t take the time we need to refresh, renew, rejuvenate, and reconnect. We’ve found that one of the best approaches is to inspire your loved ones who need self-care the most by giving them the tools they need to make those “me” moments happen.
In this compilation, you’ll find MADE SAFE certified gifts that are loving reminders to your friends to take time for themselves. And don’t forget to treat yourself – give yourself some self-love amidst the stress of the holiday season and beyond.

BUBBLE BATH
Alaffia
Babies & Kids Shea Bubble Bath – Eucalyptus Mint

Yeah, it says it’s for kids, but isn’t there an inner kid in all of us? And good bubble bath is good bubble bath. We imagine your friend adorned in a luxurious mask (see Ranavat above), sitting in a hot Alaffia bubble bath, reading a juicy novel, cup of tea in hand. You see it too?

True Botanicals aromatherapy images

AROMATHERAPY
True Botanicals
Aromatherapy Collection

One thing our team loves about these roll-ons is that they’re perfectly portable. Stash in a purse, briefcase or desk drawer for on-the-go self-care. Taking five deep breaths and rolling on True Botanicals’ Stress Relief at your desk, in a bathroom escape at the in-laws’ house, in a crowded subway car, or stuck in traffic can go a seriously long way.

GIFT IT


Coyuchi Organic Percale Sheets image

SHEETS
Coyuchi

300 Thread Count Organic Percale Sheets

What is more luxurious than snuggling between soft (and healthy) sheets? In our opinion, only adding hot chocolate, a furry friend, and a good book into the equation. These 100% organic cotton sheets are extra soft making lazy Sundays the highlight of the week. Is it the weekend yet? 

GIFT IT


Buhbli Organics Himalayan Bath Salts image

BATH SALTS
Buhbli Organics
