Steps to a "Green" Bedroom

e spend a third of our day in our bedroom, and kids spend up to half of their day there!  The time we spend in our bedrooms alone creates a strong need to “green” the bedroom.  That’s why we made a list of all the big switches you may want to consider in your bedroom:

+ Mattresses:  Mattresses create a lot of waste and can introduce the body to numerous toxins during a time of restoration.  Look for a natural or organic option that fits your sleep needs

+ Sheets:  Find a sheet set you love that is made using natural fibers.   Skip sheets with synthetic dyes, softening agents, and chemical de-wrinkling.  Unbleached, organic cotton is a great option

+ Air:  Look to incorporate some air purifying solutions into your bedrooms.  We personally use a charcoal air purifier, pink Himalayan salt lamps, and indoor plants to improve the air quality in our rooms.  You can find some authentic Himalayan pink salt lamps and nightlights in our “Shop”

+ Cleaners:  Use a non-toxic detergent to lauder your linens and only scent them with essential oils during the dry cycle, utilizing wool dryer balls.  Clean furniture and dust with a non-toxic cleaner, and use baking soda for rugs and mattresses.  You can find fair trade wool dryer balls and All Purpose Cleaner in our “Shop”

+ Technology:  Several studies suggest that radiation from cell phones and Wi-Fi disrupt sleep.  Make your room a technology-free zone by charging phones and storing laptops in other rooms.  You can also connect your router to an automatic timer to turn off Wi-Fi during sleeping hours  

+ Candles:  Conventional candles are made with petroleum by-products.  They emit toxic chemicals, including carcinogens, into the air.  The absolute best replacement is a beeswax candle, scented only with essential oils or plant extracts.  They should have 100% cotton, and lead free wicks.    
See our Shop for addition non-toxic candle options

+ Furniture:  Look for solid wood furniture with natural finishes, or used furniture that release less VOCs.  Avoid pressed wood, plywood or other particle board furniture that is held together by toxic glues and finishes

+ Shoes:  Many studies suggest that exposure to pesticides is mainly indoors.  Not only on the produce we bring in, but also what we track in.  This is why many families opt for no shoes inside.  Keeping shoes out of the bedroom can especially help reduce pesticide exposure.  Keep a pair of slippers inside your door for a simple switch
