Products - Organic & Natural
Why go Organic?
Standard mattress materials use synthetic and
petroleum-based chemicals in their construction. Fire retardants
contain chemicals as well.
If you are looking for a comfortable alternative
product that does not contain these things, you have come to the right
Many people with high sensitivities to chemicals and
painful allergic reactions, will find that the Organic & Natural
alternative is what they need to get a healthful night's sleep.
Cotton is naturally cooler than synthetic polyester
blends, so if you are "sleeping hot", this would instantly give you a
more comfortable nights sleep.
Another reason to go Organic is that cotton, along
with rubber, is the most pesticide-heavy crop known. Pesticides seep
down into our soils and then down deeper into our water tables,
poisoning our precious water for current and future generations. This
is one great reason to use your buying power to support a more natural
way of growing cotton and rubber, and help build a cleaner future.
Of all the different pesticides used on conventionally
grown cotton, 107 of these are known to be carcinogenic. These
pesticides have been proven to be responsible for birth defects,
respitory problems, infertility, sterility, and hormonal imbalances
among humans and animals.
Pesticides used in Conventionally grown crops
contaminate ground water in 32 different states, and amazingly over
half the US depends on this water for their primary drinking source!
What is Organic & Natural?
Organic products are products that are grown without
the use of pesticides, herbicides. Additionally, no bleaches have been
used, therefore, there are no allergens that will cause a reaction to
those who are extra sensitive.
Going Organic starts at the basic agricultural level
and progresses through harvesting and final processing, or Milling.
Organic Cotton is grown in soil where no pesticides
have been used for 3 years or more
Synthetic Fertilizers are replaced with composts and
other organic matter, and weeds are controlled naturally rather than
Certified Organic farms practice healthy crop rotation
processes and introduce beneficial insects to keep damaging insects
away from cotton crops.
To accelerate crop growth in certain regions, only
certified natural stimulants can be used. Indeed, everything must be
organic and natural in the growing process to achieve this difficult
The milling process does not introduce any harmful
chemicals, bleaches or dyes that would also harm the environment when
being disposed of.
