If you're looking for one easy way to green your bedroom, try starting with a bedding switch. A new duvet cover or set of pillows will make your whole bedroom look brand new. It's definitely a small change that will make a big difference, décor wise, in your home. Need more incentive? Consider the fact that conventional, nonorganic cotton uses more insecticides than any other single crop, and each year cotton producers use nearly $2.6 billion worth of pesticides, accounting for more than 10 percent of the world's pesticides and nearly 25 percent of the world's insecticides. All of those toxins don't make your nonorganic bedding seem that safe, or romantic, as you cuddle up in them at night, huh?
So, put your rebate check to a worthy cause, both personally and globally, and consider investing in some green bedding. I love this Tile Organic Duvet Cover and Sham Set ($29-$129) for its sleek, geometric look and clean lines (and of course its organic content). Check out the widget below for some of my other faves.
