The "Safer" in Safer Travel Directory was inspired by the 1995 movie "Safe" (rated R) in which the main character inexplicably becomes "allergic to the 20th century." Twentieth Century Disease (also known as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) is a very frightening, very real disability with no cure brought about by some 60,000 chemicals present in our environment, many of which have devastating effects on MCS sufferers, even present in tiny amounts.

Biography of the Creator of the Safer Travel Directory

Founder Nancy Westrom (1945-2007) compiled the Safer Travel Directory out of her need to find safe lodging while traveling. She had sensitivities to chemicals found in carpeting, wallpaper, new furniture, cleaning products, and pesticides. This condition is called Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, or MCS. She was not alone. Thousands of others have the same problem to varying degrees. Nancy was frustrated by the difficulty she had in finding lodging that didnít make her ill. While staying in typical motels, Nancy experienced a variety of disturbing symptoms, such as disabling muscle and joint pain, and painful headaches. This travel guide was created out of her frustration with most motels. The guide is for people with chemical sensitivities and those who are concerned about their health. It lists safer motels, hotels, vacation, and real estate.
