We’ve teamed up with Naturepedic to offer you an amazing giveaway! We’re highlighting organic beds and bedding in our new blog. When people think of organic, they tend to associate it most with food, not necessarily textiles or other products. But the term can also apply to beds and bedding. If you’re new to organic textiles you might be wondering why choose organic over conventional? You spend about a third of your life in bed – six to 10 hours a day – so it’s just as important to prioritize the things you sleep in and on.
The best way to get a good night’s rest is to skip the chemicals and choose certified organic.
Any crop used for organic textiles must comply with organic regulations, just like organic food products do. But a certified organic textile product carries a label that’s different from the USDA organic logo usually seen on food. For textiles, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is more common.
A GOTS product must meet stringent milling, processing, dyeing, printing, and labor standards. The manufacturer must use low-impact dyes and inks with on-site wastewater treatment. Workers must be ensured safe working conditions and a living wage.
Since 2008, Naturepedic has been certified to the strict Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which requires the use of organic fiber and prohibits the use of toxic inputs. In fact, Naturepedic was one of the very first mattress companies in the world to become certified to GOTS.
