There’s a lot of people that ask that question. They don’t really take the time to think about what’s inside conventional bedding. You know what I’m talking about – those $100 bed-in-a-bag packages.

If CBS says organic bedding is important then it must be true!

Actually we’ve been teaching (and providing) the benefits of organic sleep for 20 years… but it’s always great when an official news source such as ABC, NBC, or CBS also states the claim that bedding is one of the important product choices when choosing something “organic”.
