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. The $499 Plushtop Queen mattress set. The fake softness of a synthetic fleece blanket.
Most all of these types of conventional mattresses and bedding are made with cheap foams or petroleum based polyester batting and fabrics. And many times they’re produced using undisclosed amounts of toxic chemicals.
None of these chemicals, foams, fabrics or battings are what you could call “earth-friendly” – they’re not renewable or sustainable. In fact, the majority are made without quality in mind and are designed for planned obsolescence to break down faster, throw it away and buy a replacement. Also not good for the Earth.
So what’s the solution? Well let’s look at bedding made from eco-smart and natural materials like organic cotton, organic wool and natural latex rubber. All of these components are renewable and sustainable meaning we don’t exhaust our resources to attain these materials. There are no harmful chemicals added during the production process. The quality exceeds modern expectations of conventional bedding which means you get real value because it will actually last you much longer than that so-called “bargain”. In contrast, organic bedding is great for the health of our planet Earth. Hey… did we mention the health benefits to you?
Not to be overlooked are the wonderful advantages organic bedding can provide to the sleeper. You’ll enjoy materials that breathe – just like you do! Temperature regulating wool that’s moisture resistant means you’ll not only sleep more comfortably but it’s also naturally dust-mite resistant. Organic cotton is fine quality cotton at it’s very best with absolutely no chemical treatments or synthetic blends which can contribute to overheating. Natural latex comes from the sap of the rubber tree and contours to your body while providing optimum support – and it’s also breathable and dust-mite resistant.
Organic bedding is simple, classic and timeless. It has tremendous VALUE…. to your health, to the product’s long-term durability and to the Earth as well. Next time you get all cozy with your bed, blankets and pillows – think about what you’re getting cozy with.
