Organic Challenge Week 4: Household Items

Welcome to the fourth and final week of our Organic Challenge! This week, we’re focusing on some household item transitions that will dramatically cut down your exposure to toxic chemicals. Many of the chemicals found in the average home have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological abnormalities. Just like the other Organic Challenge products, many of the chemicals listed below have never been adequately tested for negative health effects. For example, products that kill 50% of lab animals through ingestion or inhalation can still be designated “non-toxic.” The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals. This is more than a chemistry lab at the turn of the century. We’re here to help you start removing these toxins from your home. Here are our 5 non-negotiable items to trade out to get you moving towards a healthier lifestyle. 1. Cookware Companies that sell cookware are notorious for marketing themselves as “safe” or “clean” when they aren’t. Cookware is[…]

Are You Up To Our Organic Challenge?

Have you been thinking about switching to a more organic and sustainable lifestyle, but are not sure where to start? Chemicals have made their way into our lives through the food we eat and the products that we use at alarming rates. There are more than 80,000 chemicals produced and used in the United States. Of those 80,000 chemicals, only 200 have been tested (which is less than 1%), and only five have been regulated to any standard. We understand the transition to a healthier lifestyle can be extremely overwhelming. Over the next four weeks, we are going to help guide you in making those healthy decisions that matter the most. We’re challenging you to transition four areas of your day to day life that are affected by chemicals, and give you our non-negotiable organic choices! Are you up to our organic challenge? Week 1: Organic Food May 6 – May 10 Week 2: Organic Beauty May 13 – May[…]

The Naturepedic Organic Mattress Gallery Experience

As you know, there is a lot to consider when making a big purchase. And when we say “big” we’re talking about all of the more expensive adult purchases you make—car, house, etc. It’s all of the purchases that will help you live, grow, or build. We consider them investments. Think about it. When you buy a house, you’re investing in your future and the future of your family. A home is more than a roof over your head—it’s your safe haven. It’s where memories are built. When you purchase a car, you’re investing in your personal and professional well-being. When you purchase a mattress, you’re investing in your health. And we want to help you make the best investment possible. According to HelpGuide.org, the average adult (age 18-64) should be sleeping 7-9 hours every night. If you sleep an average of 8 hours per night, you’re spending 54 hours of your week in bed—that’s roughly 2,912 hours per year.[…]

Ask Naturepedic – What Is The Difference Between Kapok And PLA?

At Naturepedic, we use high quality materials to create our mattresses, pillows, and other accessories. Our filling materials include organic cotton fill, organic wool, organic kapok, and non-GMO PLA batting. We’ve talked a lot about our cotton and wool, but sometimes our readers have some questions about our other filling materials! In this post, we’ll break down the differences between kapok and PLA so you know exactly what’s in your Naturepedic product. Organic Kapok Kapok, also known as “silk cotton,” is a fluffy fiber that surrounds the seeds of tropical kapok trees. It’s the lightest natural fiber in the world, nearly five times lighter than cotton. Kapok is also a hollow fiber that’s moisture resistant, so it helps to regulate temperature and wick moisture for a more comfortable sleep. At Naturepedic, we use only certified organic kapok. The organic certification ensures fair treatment of workers, environmental sustainability of tropical forests, and fibers grown without toxins, synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, or[…]

8 Reasons to Choose Organic Bedding

You know all about organic food and avoiding harsh pesticides on what you eat. You might even shop organic for your skincare and cosmetic products to avoid harmful chemicals you place on your skin and body. But have you thought about the difference between organic and conventional bedding? Why organic bedding? For the same reason that you choose organic milk, organic carrots, and organic shampoo. Organic bedding is a healthier option manufactured without harmful chemicals, and organic cotton specifically is healthier for the planet. It takes less water to produce organic cotton compared to conventional, and organic cotton isn’t treated with the toxic chemical pesticides or harsh chemical cleaners and fabric treatments that conventional bedding can be exposed to. For instance, “wrinkle resistant” sheets are commonly treated with chemicals that release formaldehyde, a chemical we never use in our products. They appeal on a practical level because you don’t have to worry about folding them just right or getting them[…]

What are the benefits you get from the cost? And the biggest question on everyone’s mind… is an organic mattress worth the cost?

Organic mattresses are made with higher quality materials that often come at a higher cost than cheaply made synthetics.

And organic mattresses don’t off-gas harmful chemicals that can impact your health. We believe organic mattresses are an investment in your health, and we hope that by the end of this blog post you’ll agree with us and learn one new thing about organic mattresses that you didn’t know before. Organic Mattresses Are Made[…]

Ask Naturepedic: Which Organic Pillow is Right for Me?

We offer a variety of organic pillows to suit your needs, with varying levels of comfort and support. With all these options, sometimes people ask us for some help deciding which pillow is right for them! This blog post will provide a guide to our different organic pillows and accessories that provide Safe Healthy Sleep™ for adults and children. Organic Cotton/Non-GMO PLA Pillow Great for children and adults, our organic cotton/PLA pillow is light, soft and resilient. It has low-medium loft, which is the pillow’s height on the bed.

It’s also good for stomach sleepers to maintain a healthier postural alignment while you sleep. Again, a high loft pillow might leave you with a sore neck. The PLA pillow comes in a Junior size for toddlers and kids, as well as Standard, Standard Low-Fill[…]
