San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
Organic and all-natural products continue gaining popularity with a segment of consumers, but many continue to wonder if they offer any tangible benefits beyond peace of mind. The Sleepy Shopper, a bed blog, takes a look at organic bedding materials specifically in their latest article, titled “Benefits of Natural and Organic Bedding”.
The Sleepy Shopper begins by introducing six of the most common natural materials in bedding. These include organic cotton, bamboo, silk, wool, natural latex, and plant-based foams. For each material, the article explains how they are derived and what they offer. The advantages considered focus not only on environmental benefits but also on the end user.
Cotton remains one of the most popular fabrics for bedding due its soft feel and breathability. However, The Sleepy Shopper explains that a majority of cotton is currently produced using pesticides and insecticides, accounting for up to 25% and 10% of global usage overall according to the Organic Trade Association. These chemicals affect the local environment and ecosystems, create hazards for laborers, and residues make their way into buyers’ homes. The blog highlights that organic cotton reduces this impact while offering a healthy, comfortable, and durable product.
Bamboo, which yields a silky smooth fabric, is seen as beneficial since it is a highly-renewable resource that requires little to grow, and proves effective at regulating temperatures and wicking moisture. Silk offers the benefit of luxurious smoothness and moisture-wicking, but may not be for all due to the cost and humane aspeuides, the blog is a must-read for anyone in the market for a new mattress.
