When it comes to your sleep environment, there’s no room for compromise. Think about it: we spend nearly a third of our lives asleep! Wouldn’t you want your bed to be one of the coziest places in the house for not only a good night’s sleep, but for a healthier and more nourishing one, too?

If you’re in the midst of transitioning your home to include more clean, natural products and less toxic items, your bedding is a great place to start.

Here are 5 bedding staples that should always be organic!

  1. Organic mattress - Let’s start with the biggest component of your bed: your mattress. Before you top off your sleep zone with organic cotton sheets and a pillow-like duvet, know that it matters what you’re sleeping on from the bottom up. Conventional mattresses are, unfortunately, often made with toxic flame-retardant chemicals and other toxins you don’t want to be breathing in while you sleep, But with Naturepedic’s organic mattresses, you never have to worry about your mattress off-gassing any harmful chemicals. We make sure to never use vinyl, PFCs, flame retardant chemicals and barriers, polyurethane foam, formaldehyde, pesticides, GMO’s, glues/adhesives, or any other questionable chemicals and materials that can be released into your bedroom (or the environment!) in our products. You can check out our full line of organic adult mattresses here.
  2. Organic duvet - Last but not least, you’ll want to crown your cozy organic bed with a duvet, quilt, or comforter that’s also made with 100% organic materials. Make sure the manufacturer is upfront about the materials they use, and better yet, look for products that are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). You can learn more about GOTS and why we make sure all of our products are GOTS-certified on our blog.
  3. Organic pillows, pillow protectors, & pillowcases - Resting your pretty little head on a pillow that’s ridden with toxic chemicals is just plain wrong! For a healthier option, choosing organic when it comes to your pillow, its pillow protector, and the pillowcases you use is a much safer option. Our Organic Cotton/PLA Pillow is a great option for a safer night’s sleep, made with 100% organic cotton on the outer shell, and a fiber-based PLA filling made from non-GMO sugarcane.

  4. Organic protector pads - After investing in a good, quality organic mattress, it’s important to protect it!  Using an organic protector pad not only offers protection against spills and accidents, but will also reduce the amount of dirt, germs, and dust that make it into your sleep environment. Naturepedic’s Organic Waterproof Protector Pads (available for crib mattresses, too!) are made with soft, certified organic cotton. These protector pads guard against dust mites and effectively block liquid from passing through the mattress. Using a mattress protector is a simple yet powerful defense against allergens and one of the easiest ways to boost your bed’s longevity.
  5. Organic sheets - If your sheets aren’t organic, they’re probably made with synthetic materials. Choosing organic sheets that are made with 100% certified organic materials, like organic cotton, is a safer bet for non-toxic sleep. Our Organic Sheets use 100% certified organic cotton grown without synthetic insecticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Compared to conventionally grown cotton, organic cotton eliminates nasty pesticides and promotes more fertile soilall while protecting bees, songbirds, and contributing to a healthier world.
