This week MADE SAFE released Detox Your Sleep, a groundbreaking new report and fact sheet on toxic chemicals in bedding and safer alternatives. It’s a first-of-its-kind look at the materials that make up what we sleep on and how they affect our health, with a comprehensive examination of healthier materials and a list of MADE SAFE certified bedding options.
Why is this important? We spend eight hours each night sleeping—totaling almost one-third of our lives, and babies spend almost two-thirds of their time sleeping. During that time, our bodies do critical wellness work including healing and rejuvenating.
But our mattresses and bedding can contain chemicals that can actually have negative health consequences, adding unnecessary work to the task of rejuvenation and potentially limiting the body’s innate ability to preserve our health—not to mention expose us to toxic chemicals linked to cancer, fertility problems, hormone disruption, and more. This is especially concerning for babies and children, whose systems are still developing.
The problem is that it’s hard for people to figure out which bedding is safe versus what’s not, with no labeling and very little information available. In fact, it might be one of the least talked-about health issues … which means it’s past time to bring it to light!
We’re excited to partner with @Naturepedic Organic Mattresses and @cleanairmoms (Moms Clean Air Force) on the Detox Your Sleep Giveaway! The Serenade Organic Mattress by Naturepedic is MADE SAFE certified (like all Naturepedic mattresses!), which means it’s made without flame retardants and other toxic chemicals commonly found in conventional mattresses that are linked to various health problems.
The Serenade Mattress is made with organic cotton, organic latex, and other certified organic materials (retail value: $3,000).
