Many people today are on a quest for better health, green living, and doing “just one thing” to help themselves and the environment. Today, I’d like to show you how this eco-friendly trend can start in the bedroom while you sleep. That’s right, while you sleep! There are many American companies making organic bedding and I want to share some of them with you so you can sleep better knowing you have made a difference in both the planet and the health of your family.

Let’s start with the mattress, shall we?

FoamOrder, a company out of San Francisco, California, offers organic natural mattresses and natural foam mattresses in sizes ranging from crib to California or Eastern King. They also offer pillows, wool toppers and cushions. An added bonus, their facility is even equipped with a solar powered manufacturing system. See for options.

Avoiding harmful chemicals doesn’t stop there, however. Look for organic sheets, pillowcases, and covers from companies like these:

Native Organic Cotton – located in El Segundo, California, makes organic cotton bedding and bath linens from Texas cotton. See their wares at

Brahms Mount – located in Hallowell, Maine, uses antique shuttle looms to craft natural fibers of cotton, lambswool and linen into beautiful throws, blankets, and crib blankets. Visit their website at

Probably the most impressive selection comes from Heart of Vermont, located in Barre, VT, making their products with cotton grown without pesticides or harmful chemicals and wool shorn from sheep that live the good life!
