Our friends at The Natural Home in Biltmore Park in Asheville are joining us today to chat about organic bedding. Welcome!
What is organic bedding and will it help you sleep better? When you buy mattresses, sheets, comforters, blankets, pillows or mattress pads that are made with true organic materials, you can rest easier knowing you are not exposing yourself or your family to harmful chemicals found in lesser-quality products which might be inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
Certified organic cotton fabric is woven from natural cotton grown without use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or other chemicals. The production process is verified by third-party certification organizations. When shopping for natural home products like bedding, it’s important to look for standardized certifications like Oeko-Tex Standard and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Don’t be taken in by uncertified claims of “eco” or “green” or “natural” products. Ask to see evidence of the product’s organic certification.
To be certain you’re not being “green washed,” shop names like Coyuchi for mattress pads, sheets and comforters; Organic Mattress, Inc. (OMI) for mattresses, comforters and pillows; and The Purists by SDH —all trusted names and leaders in the organic bedding industry. Also, trust your nose: if a store smells like a chemistry lab, be skeptical of its claims of being “eco,” “green” or “natural.” All these certified organic brands and many others are available at The Natural Home in Biltmore Park, Asheville, NC.
