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.

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.

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.

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

I also love their large, seasonally changing bedding selections, which makes up a huge part of their brick and mortar stores as well as their online store. I can always find something perfect for a client from their bedding sections.

The pure organic cotton sateen has really incredible softness and durability in this particular Pottery Barn sheet set, which boasts pure organic cotton, and a 350-thread count – and don’t worry – Pottery Barn’s thread count numbers are legitimate, unlike many online retailers which often exaggerate their thread count numbers.

The pillowcases in this set are hemmed with tonal satin stitching and the set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases. The sateen quality of this sheet set makes for a luxurious and comfy sleep! They’re also super easy to clean and they dry quickly.
