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.

As the Kids Go Back to School— Is This Universal Household Product Lowering Their Grades?

As the Kids Go Back to School— Is This Universal Household Product Lowering Their Grades?

Every household has at least one of these—but toxic manufacturing processes could be lowering your children’s grades and putting their health at risk.

NEW BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, August 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Every child sleeps on a mattress. But not all mattresses are created equal. Most are made with toxic chemicals, and in some cases manufactured in foreign sweatshops with inadequate oversight.

And if that mattress exposes your child to those toxic chemicals, the risks not only include a range of avoidable illnesses from asthma to skin rashes and even to cancer but could also affect brain health.* Could your child’s grades improve with a safer mattress?

“No child should lose brain function or get sick from their bedding. When there are documented cases of mattress outgassing causing severe health issues, it only makes sense to switch to a safe, organic mattress,” said Marlon Pando, MBA, owner of White Lotus Home a pioneer in natural organic bedding founded in 1981. 

White Lotus makes mattresses, pillows, bedding, furniture, and home décor by hand, in the USA, from natural organic materials such as wool, cotton, kapok, and even buckwheat hulls. White Lotus products are available at the company’s flagship store, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at 745 Joyce Kilmer Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 09801, at selected quality bedding retailers around the country, and online with no-charge shipping anywhere in the US.

What are the Benefits of a Firm Mattress?

Firm is Good for You!
People who have migrated to a firm mattress can usually offer a long list of reasons for doing so. But chiropractors, doctors and other medical professionals also tout the benefits of spending seven or eight hours a night resting on a firm mattress. These include:
  • Superior comfort. You can never have too much support, but you can always have too little support. This is especially true for older people and those with back, neck or joint problems.
  • Proper alignment of the spine. Proper posture matters, even during sleep. If your backbone is all out of whack for eight hours, it can be hard to function normally the next day. A firm mattress does a better job of keeping nicely aligned so you can get through the day without a lot of stress or strain.
  • Deeper rest. The human body can’t fully rest on a soft or sagging mattress, because it’s always trying to compensate for the unorthodox positions. And it’s not just the spine that requires excellent posture. Even your limbs, neck and other body parts need a comfy, cozy retreat for a great night’s sleep.
  • Proper weight distribution. Not enough support means that your body will eventually sag in one direction, which is a leading cause of misalignment in joints and muscles.
  • Ongoing health benefits. There’s an axiom in the sleep industry that “proper rest = proper health.” During sleep, your body does a hundred different things to repair and rejuvenate. Cells are restored. Human growth hormone gets activated. Insulin levels are reduced. Without a firm mattress to give deep rest, you’re missing out on these important health benefits every night.
