We are thrilled to announce that a selection of our products are now MADE SAFE® certified! Providing safe, organic and sustainable products is a core Coyuchi essential since day one. This means we are making sure that the place you spend a third of your life is safe and made well for you and your loved ones. Now you can sleep easy knowing that Coyuchi and MADE SAFE is taking care of you and Mother Nature.
The MADE SAFE seal means that products have been thoroughly examined by researchers and scientists to ensure they’re made without known behavioral toxins, carcinogens, developmental toxins, endocrine disruptors, flame retardants, heavy metals, neurotoxins, high-risk pesticides, reproductive toxins, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs. MADE SAFE then goes above and beyond: MADE SAFE additionally screens ingredients for bioaccumulation, environmental persistence, general ecosystem harm, as well as for 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 leading the way in making products without ingredients known to harm human health or ecosystems. So why is this important? Unfortunately, there are tens of thousands of chemicals in use right now in the products we use every day; very few of them have been studied and some have been linked to serious health problems. Combined with confusing claims like “green” or “eco” (which don’t actually mean anything about how safe or healthy a product is), people have been stuck trying to figure out which products are actually safe and which ones aren’t. Without information from companies and a degree in chemistry or toxicology, the task is almost impossible!
The MADE SAFE seal solves this problem. Finally, you can easily find trusted, certified products that are made without known harmful chemicals. We’re proud to put that power in your hands! For those looking to build your MADE SAFE certified Coyuchi Bed you can start with our basics like the Organic Mattress Pad, the Three Season Down Duvet Insert or the Down Pillow. For those who are looking for MADE SAFE sheeting we offer Organic Percale in 220TC, 300TC or Crinkled, or for a soft silky hand we also offer 300 TC Organic Sateen.
With this seal, we’re leading the way to change how products are made in this country making them safer and healthier. By buying MADE SAFE, you can help us bring about this change. Together we can create a healthy, safe and sustainable future.
Look for this seal on our products at Coyuchi, as well as on www.madesafe.org.
