Roundup: Beautifully Designed Organic Bedding

In the past few years, organic bedding, which had previously been eco-friendly but not very design-savvy, has really come into its own, with beautiful patterns and vibrant colors spicing up a selection of organic cotton. I'm happy to see this textile gain mass appeal, and given its reasonable price point, there's really no excuse not to transition to organic bedding.

To see a roundup of my favorite organic bedding, and to hear more about the health risks of using conventional cotton bedding,

.

Did you know that US farmers apply nearly 1/3 of a pound of chemical fertilizers and pesticides for every pound of cotton they harvest? Conventional cotton crops account for 25 percent of all chemicals used in the United States. Furthermore, many non-organic cotton sheets are treated with formaldehyde, which helps them avoid wrinkling. And since there's no law requiring companies to label sheets that use formaldehyde, they usually don't. These sheets don’t even have to have a label informing you of what they were treated with! Formaldehyde is a cancer-causing chemical that, unfortunately, is found in many common household items like furniture, particle board (which is actually used in the construction of your house), paints, and carpet.

By choosing organic bedding, you can reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals, and know that you're doing your part to reduce pesticide use on farmland as well. Oh, and now, thanks to great new designs, you can keep your boudoir looking chic at the same time.
