The best part about Gaiam's throw blankets and bedding quilts is that you rest easy knowing they are made from organic materials that reflect a healthy lifestyle. Our bedding, from shams to blankets, is finely crafted from organic cotton, which is a necessity for any ecofriendly home.
Today's nonorganic cotton production includes genetically modified fibers as well as pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Nonorganic quilts, blankets, and throws are subject to harsh dyes, excessive washing that wastes water, and formaldehyde to help keep them wrinkle free.
Organic cotton growers don't use toxic chemicals and replenish the ground to maintain its fertility. Organic bedding also isn't exposed to toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process, and its production uses much less water. Another reason to go green when it comes to your bedding is to maintain a healthy body. Traces of these compounds can end up in your bedding. Spending eight hours every night breathing in or sleeping against these chemicals may be irritating to people with allergies or other skin or respiratory sensitivities.
Even if you aren't chemically sensitive, you will feel a distinctive difference between convention cotton bedding and organic. You will find that your organic cotton quilt or throw feels softer on your skin. Many people report that they sleep better while wrapped in organic-cotton blankets. Rest assured that your ecofriendly organic quilts will look great and promote a healthy lifestyle.
