White Lotus Home - US Manufacturers of Organic Cotton and Natural Mattresses, Pillows and Bedding


 

HIGHLAND PARK, NJ –  An increasing number of consumers are concerned about indoor air quality and toxic chemicals in mattress foams, glues, and fire retardant substances.  


Conventional mattresses typically contain petrochemicals, fire retardants, plastics or vinyl. This chemical cocktail is linked to a host of health maladies, such as allergies and respiratory problems.  This is particularly so with crib mattresses.

Here are 10 reasons why you should sleep on an organic cotton filled mattress:  

  1. Organic mattresses are made with materials found in nature, resources that encourage sustainable farming throughout the world: cotton grown without pesticides and wool from sheep raised on chemical free farms.
  2. Standard industry mattresses are made from man-made materials, most commonly derived from petrochemicals.

  3. Petrochemicals are derived from oil.

  4. Oil contains toxins.

  5. Oil is not a renewable resource.

  6. Oil is highly flammable.

  7. Studies have raised concerns about the long-term health effects petrochemical bedding materials may have on humans.

  8. If you sleep on a memory foam mattress, you're spending a third of your life sleeping on an oil-based product.

  9. All mattresses sold in the U.S. have to meet the U.S. Fire Code burn test. Mattresses need to be treated so they don't ignite. However, the chemicals used to treat mattresses to make them flame proof are highly suspect.

  10. Our skin absorbs toxins, our lungs breathe in airborne vapors.  Do you really trust the mattress industry when they tell you it's safe to sleep on their materials?


White Lotus Home, a manufacturer of natural and organic cotton mattresses, bedding and pillows,  handcrafts in the USA, a GOTS and USDA certified organic cotton filled mattress  This mattress is only wrapped with a natural layer of pure wool, sourced in the USA, to provide the fire retardant qualities your mattress requires.  Do you prefer no wool in your mattress?  No problem, just supply a prescription from your primary care physician, stating you require a chemical free mattress and this mattress can be handcrafted for you with no wool wrapping.  Do you prefer a firm mattress?  Then the Organic Cotton and Wool Boulder Mattress may be your choice.  It is handcrafted with extra layers of certified organic cotton and twice as many tuftings in comparison to White Lotus Homes’ standard mattresses to provide a firmer, supportive surface.  You also have the option of no wool, by providing your doctor's note.  This firm mattress is popular for those that have slept on mattresses while living in Japan and India.  Visit their online store for links to videos on how they manufacture in the USA.
