My Green Mattress Organic Sheets Giveaway

What happens when your child is born with severe eczema and allergies? You research and do everything you can to alleviate their symptoms. Tim, founder of My Green Mattress was already in the conventional mattress industy, but soon handcrafted a 100% all-natural latex mattress and ships them all over the country. What a dad!

I’ve chatted many times on this blog why sleeping naturally is VERY healthy for you and we really shouldn’t look any other way. Today we are going to talk about Why Organic Cotton. My knowledge comes from the My Green Mattress blog post titled Organic Cotton – Better for the Earth and for the Environment.

organic cotton

“Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. It is estimated that each year cotton producers use as much as 25 percent of the world’s insecticides and more than 10 percent of the world’s pesticides; an incredible amount for one just one crop” (Dietz, Huff Post Green).

These chemicals pollute our air and water supply, and have a grave effect on those working with or living around the areas where cotton is being grown and treated. Across all agricultural sectors, an estimated 1 to 5 million cases of pesticide poisoning occur every year, resulting in 20,000 reported deaths among agricultural workers and at least 1 million requiring hospitalization (The True Costs of Pesticides).

Just think about all the cotton you use on a daily basis – clothing,  stuffed animals, blankets, sheets, tablecloths, furniture, mattresses, towels. We are breathing in those chemicals used to grow it. It’s easy to understand why SLEEPING would be even more important when it comes to organic cotton. I know I like to spend my 8 hours at night breathing naturally. Think of all the problems (like severe eczema and allergies to name just a couple!) that can occur because most of us don’t.

Organic Sheets My Green Mattress

Organic Sheets is a great place to start! My Green Mattress has a very affordable option from most that I’ve seen. A sheet set contains both a flat and fitted sheet plus a pillowcase or two depending on size of bed. This retails from $79-$129. You’ll have a hard time beating that!

Only comes in a Natural color so no color processing or dyes.

400 thread count and 100% organic cotton makes them super soft. You won’t want to sleep on anything else again! A great holiday gift for the whole family I think – everyone needs to be sleeping healthier from young to old.

U.S. Made and GOTS Certified is important too!
