organic mattress bedding

More research has been done on bedding in the past few years as we have become more educated on the negative effects chemicals, pesticides and dyes have on us and our environment. We normally sleep an average of eight to ten hours a night. At 365 days in a year, that is more than 3,000 hours we spend in our beds a year! If we sleep on mattresses, pillows and sheets that have harmful chemicals, pesticides and dyes, we are exposing ourselves to this environment for over 60 hours in one week!

That is a lot of exposure to elements what can cause harm to our bodies. Some of these chemicals, pesticides and dyes have been linked to allergies, breathing problems, skin irritations and even cancer. Organic bedding is made with natural materials intended to provide us with the healthiest environment to sleep in. Below I will discuss five reasons to buy organic bedding.

1. Better for your Health:
Organic bedding is naturally better for your health! It is made without harmful chemicals, pesticides and dyes. This means you will not be exposing yourself to these harmful elements, night after night.

2. Better for the Environment:
It is much better on the environment when we use materials that are naturally produced in nature. Since organic bedding is made up of cotton, natural latex from the rubber tree, wool and other naturally grown products it benefits the environment in several ways. Since there is no need to manufacture the materials, no harmful additives are required that are not compatible with the environment. Also, in the event organic bedding is thrown away, it breaks down much easier than its non organc counterparts.

3. Less Irritation:
Organic bedding has been shown to cause less skin irritation than non organic bedding. This is especially true in babies and small children.

4. Naturally resistant to bed bugs, dust mites and mold:
Studies have shown that organic bedding materials, such as wool, are a natural way to repel bed bugs and dust mites. Many material used for organic bedding are also resistant to mold.

5. Reduction in Allergies
Many people have switched to organic bedding because of allergies to dust mites, chemicals and pesticides. They have reported a large reduction in allergies when changing to all organic bedding. Because organic bedding is made with all natural materials that most people can tolerate well, it reduces the likeliness of a person developing allergies.

There you have it! Five totally legitimate reasons to buy organic bedding. This is just better bedding is better for you and the environment, which That makes is a win win for each of us and the world we live in!
