The Difference Between a Green & Organic White Lotus Home Mattress

All Dreamton & Vegan Mattresses are available in the Green Cotton or Organic Cotton options. Green Cotton is like buying fruits from a local farm while Organic Cotton is like buying fruits from Whole Foods Market and the likes.

What is GOTS-Certified Organic Cotton? 🌿It is where cotton gets its degree, GOTS-certified organic cotton is held to the highest standards for health and sustainability. The core of most of our mattress options are hand made of endless fluffy layers of 100% pesticide-free US grown GOTS Certified organic cotton raised sustainably, from our farms to your bed. Pesticide and insecticide free, 100% natural and biodegradable, safe for sensitive skin, firm, yet soft, consumes 91% less water to grow than regular cotton and protects farmers from pesticide exposure.

What is Green Cotton? 🌱A more affordable option to our organic cotton, our conventionally grown Green Cotton is grown in the United States — it just isn’t certified organic. This more affordable material is slightly firmer than organic cotton, but the real beauty is in what it doesn’t have: NO dyes, NO perfumes & NO flame retardants. Grown by farmers right here in the US, Green Cotton is a fabulous cost-saving material that doesn’t put you in contact with harmful chemicals typically found in cotton.

Picky Millennials Might Be Saving the Planet

How Today’s Everything Buyers Are Forcing Brands to Shape Up (Or Ship Out)

NEW BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- There is nobody more discerning in modern history than the millennial buyer.

Call him what you will, but today’s late 20’s to early 40s aged buyer is deliberate bordering on the fickle, and it shows. Research shows that more than 63% of purchases made online are made based on user-generated content, ranging from Amazon reviews to unboxing videos on YouTube.

But as the social media takeover gets a new kind of foothold, consumers are exercising an even more potent buyer right: the right to take sales from the companies who don’t give a crap.

The Buyers With the Heart On Their Sleeve

Boomers and Gen-Xers may lament the studious tastes of their generational successors, but the fact is that these buyers are about to make up the majority of the nation’s economic might.

In 2018, millennials were projected to overtake Gen-Xers as the carriers for the single largest buying power in the United States, with an estimated $200 billion in collective annual spending.

But this generation spends its money unlike any other, and if there’s one thing the data shows, it’s that the economic constraints of the highest cost of living in decades hasn’t phased them — they’re living frugally, and still putting their money into purchases from ethical brands.

On average, most millennials spend their time and money in places and experiential purchases that are value aligned, meaning they’re willing (and able) to spend more money on things like organic produce, whereas they might save money by cohabitating with friends or family members.

In most cases, what’s most remarkable about this generation is that they’re 75% more likely to buy from a company whose values align with their own.

Millennials are putting their money where their mouth is, and their mouth is fed up with unsustainable business models that take endlessly from the environment.

Greenwashing Is a Bust

About five years ago, marketing terms like ‘natural’ and ‘green’ would fly enough to give companies a spike in interest for conscientious buyers. Over time however, shoppers opened up to the idea that they were being manipulated, and the game got blown wide open.

It shows tremendous restraint on the part of the buyers to hold out and pay more for ethical brands. Now things like MadeSafe and GOTS-certified are the new standards in eco-validation, and buyers are more aware all the time of ways to identify the frauds and the fakes in the business.

The label-reading generation who elicited so many eyerolls in its early days is in its renaissance of making changes, and the effects are rippling out to wider profit margins in value-aligned industries not seen since the dawn of inflation.

Brands are capitalizing on the response in the best way — by greening their businesses, and creating conscious enterprises that operate as a force for good.

It’s Supply and Demand, Baby

For small companies like White Lotus Home, an eco-friendly bedding supplier, the change is hardly a shocker.

“Today’s businesses have to adapt to the “organic” change and understand that Millennials, and even some Gen Xers, read labels and do their homework before shopping. They’re changing many industries,” says President Marlon Pando.

The homegrown New Jersey based company has just celebrated one of its latest in ethical manufacturing achievements: becoming GOTS certified.

“When I started working for White Lotus Home in 2006, it was good enough for customers to know that we were doing our best to be natural and organic, but now they look for proof beyond marketing, they need facts.

At White Lotus Home, integrity has been key, word of mouth is responsible for over 70% of our business and becoming GOTS was the best next step.”

In 2018, a whopping 85% of purpose-driven brands saw positive revenue growth, compared to the 42% of non-purpose driven brands who saw a DROP in revenue.

The numbers speak for themselves: positive changes might exist in the hands of conscious enterprises like White Lotus Home.

White Lotus Home is a sustainable bedding manufacturer selling mattresses, duvets, pillows, sheets, and more online and in-store at their New Jersey showroom location. They’re committed to producing clean, hypoallergenic environmental change, one mattress at a time.

How Are Orders Handled?

It’s hard to believe what we are all experiencing, sending prayers your way 🙏.

Our White Lotus Home family extends prayers and warm wishes to you and your families during this difficult time. 

Here is more about the extra steps we are taking to service our customers. 

We are following the guidance of global health experts at WHO and U.S. CDC on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus including the following:

  • Any employee that shows any signs of illness, is asked to please go home. We are working on offering more paid days off as soon as we get new financial assistance. Thankfully, none of our crew members has had to go home due to illness.
  • Our staff is following all the frequent hand washing protocols. 
  • We are cleaning and disinfecting our entire facility daily, including but not limited to cleaning all door handles inside and out, bathrooms and kitchen, areas of handcrafting.
  • Every handcrafter and staff member is now working in their own separate rooms.
  • Once each product has been handcrafted, they are properly sealed in a bag (or paper wrapped if you prefer).  For orders shipping via UPS, FedEx or USPS, the already sealed order is placed inside a brand new box.

In order to reduce exposure from the time your order is handmade in our NJ facility until the time it enters your home: 

  • When your order arrives, you can remove and discard/recycle the box outside before you bring the bagged product(s) into your home.  
  • We do all of our own Deliveries within 150 miles, but from now until further notice, we will not be able to enter your homes.  Again, the products are delivered in a sealed bag, but we are adding a second bag or box so that when we deliver it, we/you can remove the outer bag, dispose/recycle it before bringing the mattress into your home.  
  • Prefer for us to HOLD YOUR ORDER FOR FREE? We can keep your order in our private warehouse for up to 3 weeks for free, before you pick it up, we ship it or hand deliver it. There would be a $100 fee monthly thereafter. 

Our customer service hours are 10 am to 5 pm EST Monday to Saturday, by calling 732-828-2111. Showroom is closed!    

Need help selecting your next White Lotus Home product?  Please consider these very informative YouTube videos and our Natural Blog.

NOW you can also visit us VIRTUALLY.

ABC''s for a SAFER SLEEP!

Now that our children are going back to school, it may be a good time for the rest of us to learn more about Safer Sleep 😴.

Whether you are starting on your green living journey or have a Green MBA already, it is never too late to increase your awareness on the many factors traditional mattressespillows and bedding can cause our children’s health.

For this reason, we are giving away 2 FREE mattresses soon!

After 38 years, White Lotus Home has heard almost everything on issues humans worldwide are faced with, by using the wrong mattress and sleeping on unsafe bedrooms and environments. Every once in a while we do learn new cases where traditional or even worse, pretentious products affect human’s health.

Your bedding could be the main reason you are not resting, recovering or healing as best as possible. Please read this link for over 100 reasons why some of our own customers feel they need or needed to replace their mattresses and why we decided to give away 10 mattress absolutely free last year. 

We do not mean to frighten you, but over and over we are asked to expand on what we have learned from all the many clients we have helped find a Safer Sleep, in close to 4 decades. The best time to change is now, please do not wait until something goes wrong, there are dozens of chemicals that unfortunately are legally allowed to be included in traditional mattresses, pillows, and bedding. It would be best to start from scratch, but we understand that is not always easily accessible.

However, know that changing the frequency you air out your bedding and how much sunlight you allow it to be exposed to, could help reduce or dissipate the odors and reactions these chemicals in standard bedding can be causing you.

Replacing your topper or pillow top with a new Organic or Green Topper and some new organic sheets can also help dramatically.

Here is how we are going to help you meet the ABCs of a Safer Sleep! 

A. Code SaferSleep will give you 30% off all Organic MattressesPillowsToppersSheets, and Stows until the end of the month, this Saturday. Need it Now

B. For those that need a little more legroom: You can use our 50/50 program during this offer. Pay 50% now and the other 50% when its ready to ship (or until the end of November). 

C. How to win one of the 2 FREE mattresses? All orders (no minimum) received from TODAY until the end of September will automatically be entered in this giveaway.

Please add a comment here, explaining why we should choose you.

  • The 1st winner will be chosen on September 30th, they will win a Twin Size Mattress of choice (Over a $1,300 Value).
  • The 2nd winner will be chosen on October 15th, and that family will win a Queen Size Mattress of choice (Over a $2,100 Value).
  • Do not need a mattress and you win? You will get a White Lotus Home Coupon of the VALUE instead :)

Your Clean Green Laundry Routine

Your Clean Green Laundry Routine

Your Clean Green Laundry Routine

Toxins and unwanted chemicals lie in more places than you might think, and when it comes to bedding and linens, the last thing you want is to sleep in residue all night long. Naturally laundering your linens and avoiding harsh chemicals benefits you and your local environment in a number of ways. If you're looking to clean up your laundry routine, here are some natural practices you might like to consider: 

Use Vinegar and Wool Dryer Balls 

Fabric softener and dryer sheets are perhaps one of the biggest offenders in conventional laundry practices. Quaternary ammonium compounds, called "quats" for short, are the chemical compounds found in liquid softeners and dryer sheets that make your clothes feel soft. The problem is that these compounds can trigger asthma and linger on the clothing you wear and linens you sleep in long after they've been removed from the dryer. That means you're carrying these chemicals with you all day and sleeping with them all night long. Combine quats with all the other fragrances, colors, and preservatives found in fabric softeners, and you've got yourself a wearable chemical cocktail that sticks to your clothes, pollutes the air in your home, and gets dumped right into your local water source with every wash. 

The great news is that avoiding fabric softeners doesn't mean you have to wear stiff clothing or sleep in scratchy sheets. You can use vinegar in the washer and wool dryer balls instead to help soften your clothes and linens naturally. Wool contains a natural oil called lanolin that is released from its fibers when heated by your dryer. As an added bonus, if you want to naturally scent your clothing, just put a few drops of your favorite essential oils right onto your wool dryer balls before each cycle. Most wool dryer balls are about the size of a baseball and can be purchased online, or you can make them yourself by balling up and felting some 100% wool yarn. 

Sun Your Stains Out

Chemical bleaches and stain removers might be effective at removing stains, but they are harmful for the environment, harsh to breathe in, and can damage your skin if you accidentally come into direct contact with them. Did you know that you can actually remove stains by drying your clothes and linens out in the sun? Even some of the most stubborn stains can be bleached out in a sunbath. The next time you have a rough morning and spill your coffee on your shirt, don't sweat it. Save yourself the cash, time, and hassle of dealing with stain removers by simply hanging your stained fabric outside in full sun after it's just come out of the washer. Usually, two to three hours will do the trick. Keep in mind that sun bleaching is often more effective when the fabric is wet, so even if you don't want to wash the whole thing, wet down the stained area before hanging your fabric out in the sun to get the best results from this all-natural, chemical-free, age-old stain removing method.

Consider Natural Laundry Detergents 

Fortunately for conscious consumers, new all-natural laundry detergents are being added to the market all the time. You can find a small selection at almost any grocery store, and if you're someone who enjoys an occasional DIY project, you can even make natural laundry detergent yourself! There are all sorts of easy DIY laundry soap recipes online, so you can experiment as much or as little as you please to find whatever concoction works best for you.
