Since some recent news stories made a big deal about calling out the fact that Lead Safe Mama, LLC actually earns MONEY (G-d forbid!) to help cover the costs of the independent consumer goods testing and childhood Lead poisoning prevention work we do (helping families around the world), I thought this was a good time to re-share information about our THREE affiliate partners (in addition to the Amazon links we share).
We choose affiliate partners VERY selectively. We only choose affiliate partners who manufacture products that Lead Safe Mama has thoroughly tested (using XRF technology) and we only share products our family regularly uses (or used to use when the children were younger/ would use if they were younger!).
We also only choose affiliate partners who ONLY make products that are all 100% Lead-free.
We fully disclose the commission percentage (and total annual commissions in our annual reports, too!) as well as the discount that our affiliate partners offer readers.
Up to this moment, we have only had THREE affiliate partners and we are about to announce our FOURTH affiliate partner. This is because we are VERY PICKY about who we partner with!
Our very first affiliate partners was Naturepedic! The company has been supporting our work for nearly a decade now and we started our affiliate relationship with them back in 2019. I recommend these products because — after lots of research — this is the brand I chose for our family. When we are home, my family sleeps on Naturepedic mattresses. We love their science-based environmentally conscious approach to manufacturing and we love the high ethical standards of both their corporate policies and the people who work there.
Naturepedic offers Lead Safe Mama community members a 15% discount and contributes 15% of what our readers spend back to Lead Safe Mama, LLC in support of our childhood Lead poisoning prevention advocacy work. (All readers have to do is start their Naturepedic shopping with a click on a Lead Safe Mama affiliate link!)
In December 2023, your Naturepedic purchases earned Lead Safe Mama, LLC $1,212.84 in support of our programs.
Here’s our affiliate link, which can also be found on the website menu (near the top of the page): https://shrsl.com/3n91p.
The discount code is: LeadSafe15
Thank you for supporting our ethical, environmentally conscious affiliate partners!

Here’s a random Amazon affiliate link (for a Lead-free thing) to start your shopping off, too (in case you were looking for one). With Amazon, you don’t need to buy what we link to for us to receive a percentage of what you spend (at no extra cost to you) — just start your shopping with a click on one of our Amazon links (don’t put the item in your cart!) and go about your shopping as you normally would: https://amzn.to/48SyHyU.

She is also a mother of Lead-poisoned children (two of her sons were acutely Lead-poisoned in 2005). Since 2009, Tamara has been using XRF technology (a scientific method used by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) to test consumer goods for toxicants (specifically heavy metals — including Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Antimony, and Arsenic). Tamara’s work was featured in Consumer Reports Magazine in February of 2023 (March 2023 print edition).
