2021: A brand new year to live a less toxic lifestyle. To start, we are kicking off the year with 10 ideas to begin this commitment right now. In your own home. We recommend starting this new year by picking one or two items that you can work toward immediately and then pace yourself in working toward the others.
Living a healthier lifestyle is not a quick fix. What matters most is taking consistent steps where you can and as you are able.
A Note to Those Who Have Come Along for the Whole Year
It’s hard to believe that we are here—a whole year of taking concrete steps towards cultivating a healthier home environment through our New Year’s Revolution Challenge. We are so glad you joined us for this journey. It is our hope that the twelve swaps we suggested, however small, are helping to reduce the number of harmful substances in your living space. Our intention is to do the best we can right now, while striving to continue to do better when it is possible. Every seemingly small decision gives you the opportunity to align yourself with your commitment to healthy living!

We get it, talking feminine care can feel awkward, but here at MADE SAFE, we believe that this conversation is a top priority. That’s why in our New Year’s Revolution challenge for this month, we are challenging you to rethink your period products.
We’re all social distancing to keep ourselves and essential workers safe – that means we’re spending a lot of time indoors. And we mean a lot.
In case you missed it, as we begin a new year here at MADE SAFE, we’re going beyond resolutions by kicking off a year-long revolt against the toxic consumer products that are in our homes.
We’re calling it a New Year’s Revolution.
