Plastic Free July is a global movement engaging millions of people to become part of the solution to plastic pollution. The movement specifically asks each of us – that means you, me, and everyone else who is willing – to refuse single-use plastic.

Are you pregnant? Trying to conceive? Or just thinking about expanding your family? No matter where you are in the process, The Healthy Pregnancy Guide is for you.

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.
Have you ever thought about what you’re putting on or inside the most sensitive parts of your body? At MADE SAFE, we sure have – so we think it’s time that the sex talk is transformed into the healthy sex talk.
Every woman I’ve ever met remembers her first period, and usually has a story to boot. For me, I’ll never forget seeking the counsel of the school nurse on that day way-back-when. She handed over a pad essentially the size of a diaper. Oh, how times have changed! These days, pads have gotten thinner, tampons are now much more common, and new solutions like menstrual cups and period panties are taking the femcare market by storm. It’s a good time to be alive with a period!

Wipes have saved us in public when we’ve encountered messes of magnitudes we didn’t know were possible before becoming parents. (more…)
Maybe you’ve just learned that you’re pregnant, or maybe you have a new baby or growing children. Perhaps you and your partner are just thinking about having a family.

If you’re pregnant or know someone who’s pregnant, you want to be sure to buy only the safest products for mom and the newest member of the family. The problem is that sometimes, it’s not that simple. Many products don’t have labels, and there are confusing claims to navigate, like “green,” “eco,” and “natural”—that actually don’t mean anything at all in terms of standards. (more…)
Each of us is in a different place in our nontoxic living journey. Some of us are just starting to think about the ways in which we are exposed to toxics every day. Some are making small and gradual changes. And others have completely overhauled our lives, but are hungry for more. (more…)
