Three Benefits of Switching to Organic Bedding Today
Making the switch to organic bedding is a positive step towards a healthier home and environment. But with so many bedding options to choose from, how can you distinguish the benefits of each organic bedding product? The best way to begin your search for the best organic bedding for your bedroom is to narrow down your selection by materials. Some of the most comfortable fibers available are organic cotton and wool. However, you should note that many conventional bedding products that contain organic materials might also include synthetic fabrics.
At Natural Healthy Bedroom, we have over 20 years of experience selecting products based on natural materials and sustainability. Our commitment to you, our customer, is research and a pre-selection process that guarantees you the best organic products that are made with your personal health in mind from start to finish. If you are still unsure if making the switch to organic is worth added costs, consider the following three benefits of organic bedding sets for you and your family.
Soft Comfort: The feel of organic cotton at it purest form is soft to the touch and delivers comfort like no other fabric. Among some of the primary differences between non-organic and organic cotton begins in the harvesting process. Conventional cotton farming is a toxic operation that does not prohibit the use of pesticides and other harmful chemicals. In contrast, harvesting cotton without these substances allows the fibers in organic cotton to retain their natural benefits. When you sleep on organic cotton sheets and comforters, they envelop your body throughout the night, wicking away excess moisture to keep you cool at night. One of the best benefits of sleeping on organic cotton sheets is that the fibers are naturally breathable, which allow air to circulate around your body for all day and night comfort.
Healthier Sleep: Making the switch to organic bedding is an important step towards better health. You want to make the best choices for you and your family about nutrition and things that impact personal well-being. However, with so many purchase decisions, it can be easy to overlook certain items that may have a negative impact on personal health. For example, your bedding and mattress is the environment where you end your day and recharge. If you are sleeping on non-organic bedding, tossing and turning while you sleep results in repeated friction between your skin and your sleep surface. This simple action has the potential to expose your body to a cocktail of pesticides and dyes used in the harvesting and manufacturing process. When you sleep on Natural Healthy Bedroom bedding, you can rest assured that your organic bedding sleep surface benefits your personal health.
Sustainability: Protecting the earth’s natural resources is huge task that requires the collaboration from manufacturers and consumers. The production of conventional cotton used in most bedding has serious consequences across all individuals who come in contact with the fiber. The use of pesticides in farming endangers the health of farmers who handle these toxic substances. To make matters worse, the conventional cotton processing can also involve another set of fabric processing chemicals and dyes that have been proven to cause health effects. The most harmful effect, however, occurs in the soil, where pesticides contaminate and deplete nutrients that help plants grow naturally. This repeated process from the harvesting and manufacturing process is simply unsustainable and endangers future crops, water supplies, and human health.
One of the best ways to ensure that you are purchasing top quality organic bedding products is to check the label for certifications. When shopping for organic bedding, the industry standard that guarantees products are made with top quality organic materials is the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
The GOTS certification is only granted for products that meet strict requirements for quality and safety throughout the supply chain and manufacturing process. Natural Healthy Bedroom carries GOTS certified products to ensure that you and your family sleep on a non-toxic organic surface, free of chlorine and BPA. In addition to this certification, our relationships with our suppliers and selection processes guarantee you only the best organic bedding products that have benefits for personal health and the environment.
