Coyuchi + MADE SAFE

Coyuchi + MADE SAFE

Cayla Zelanis

We choose the MADE SAFE certification because it meets the highest standards of safety for your home and the Earth. Providing safe, organic, and sustainable products has been at the core of Coyuchi since day one. The place where you and your loved ones spend a third of your life needs to be safe—and you can sleep easy knowing that Coyuchi and MADE SAFE are taking care of you and the Earth.

The MADE SAFE seal means that certified products have been thoroughly examined by researchers and scientists to ensure they’re made without:

  • Behavioral toxins
  • Carcinogens
  • Developmental toxins
  • Endocrine disruptors
  • Flame retardants
  • Heavy metals
  • Neurotoxins
  • High risk pesticides
  • Reproductive toxins
  • Toxic solvents
  • Harmful VOCs

Going above and beyond, MADE SAFE additionally screens ingredients for:

  • Bioaccumulation
  • Environmental persistence
  • General ecosystem harm 
  • Toxicity to aquatic and terrestrial life

When there is doubt they exercise the precautionary principle, erring on the side of caution. The MADE SAFE approach flips the current regulatory model of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ on its head. This 360-degree assessment makes MADE SAFE the leading standard in existence.

In short, it means that we’re making products without ingredients known to harm human health or ecosystems. We’re leading by example, in the hopes that our colleagues in the textile industry (and beyond) will follow suit. There are tens of thousands of chemicals in the products we use every day, and very few of them have been studied—and some have been linked to serious health problems. Combined with the overuse of confusing terms like “green” or “eco” (which don’t actually signify any measure of safety or health benefits), it’s increasingly difficult to figure out which products are safe to bring into your home. Without transparency from supply chains—and a degree in chemistry or toxicology— it’s virtually impossible to know where a product has been and what kind of chemicals it has come into contact with.

The MADE SAFE seal solves this problem. We’re proud to put that power in your hands, so you can find trusted, certified products that are made without known harmful chemicals. If you’re looking to build your MADE SAFE certified Coyuchi Bed, you can start with basics like the Organic Mattress Pad or the Climate Beneficial Wool Topper, the Climate Beneficial Wool Duvet Insert, and the Organic Pillow Protector. Our MADE SAFE sheeting selection includes classics like Organic Percale in 300TC or our Crinkled finish, and our soft and silky 300 TC Organic Sateen—also available in our easy, one-step minimalist sets. You can even wash your MADE SAFE linens safely with our Climate Beneficial Wool Dryer Balls, which absorb up to ten times their weight in water and help to separate clumps of wet laundry to improve air circulation.
