✨ Shop GREEN, Not PRIME ✨

Think Twice Before Shopping Prime…

What happens with your dollars 💵 when you do? 🤔

Dear WLH Community Member, 

You might already be aware that Prime Day is coming up next week.

Before you shop all those Prime Day deals, as a member of our conscious community, we’d love for you to please think for a moment about where your dollars will go when you do. Here’s a quick look at Amazon’s stats: 

  • More than 50% of Amazon’s products come from other countries, and 45% of them are from China (Yikes!)
  • Jeff Bezos’ current net worth is $193.4 billion USD, and it’s only growing.
  • Amazon generated almost 500 million pounds of plastic packaging last year, more than 22 million pounds of which ended up in rivers and oceans. Very sad 😧!


TAKE THE LOTUS LOCAL CHALLENGE!

✨ SHOP GREEN, NOT PRIME ✨

Amazon bought Whole Foods four years ago, but we've been organic for FORTY! 👍

White Lotus Home has been ahead of the Green game for decades, and we'd like to keep it that way! 

With Prime Day on its way, we challenge you to take the Lotus Local Challenge and shop GREEN this week before Prime Day even starts! 

Here’s what happens when you buy from a small sustainable ♻️ business instead of a billion-dollar megacorporation: 

⭐ Small businesses like ours utilize other local small businesses like banks, service providers, and farms.

⭐ For every $100 you spend at local businesses, $68 will stay in the community! (1) Woo-Hoo! 🙌

⭐ Independent retailers return more than three times as much money per dollar of sales to the community in which they operate than chain competitors.

⭐ Supporting local businesses is good for the environment because they often have a smaller carbon footprint than larger companies. 🌎

Happy Sleep 😴 Important WOOL Update!

A Letter from Our President

Dear WLH Community Member, 

Back in 2005 when I began working as the General Manager of our great company, we used New Zealand raised wool that was then processed into batting in the USA for all of our wool products. 

Since New Zealand truly is the best in the world when it comes to the wool industry, this setup resulted in great, high quality products for our customers. 👏

Then in 2008, something happened with imports that made the prices increase dramatically, and our company was forced to switch to USA raised wool. 

The problem with this, however, is that USA raised sheep are not always treated as well as the sheep are in New Zealand. Not only is this sad and disappointing from an ethical standpoint, it also can result in a lower quality product. 😦

   

As you know, our company is committed to creating healthy, ethical, long-lasting, high quality products so you can enjoy and feel great about your purchases. With this standard in mind and now that global markets have shifted, we’ve decided to make the switch back to New Zealand raised wool that’s processed into batting here in the US.

We’re confident that this switch will offer you the best possible wool products, craftsmanship that will last even longer, and wool products you can feel really great about because you know the animals are treated well & raised ethically. 👍

As you know, we love and prefer to use American grown fibers as much as possible, but when it comes to wool, everyone that uses, works with, and loves wool knows that there’s truly nothing better than New Zealand wool. 😁

With that, we are thrilled to begin offering you even higher quality products that are more ethically sound at the same great prices we have been for years. 

Here’s to happy sheep 🐑 and happier sleep 😴

Sincerely, 

- Marlon Pando

  President of White Lotus Home

 

OUR PROMISE TO YOU 🙌

You’ll Always Receive Traceable, Farm to Market Wool from Happy Sheep in NZ! 🐑

When you purchase any White Lotus Home wool product or bulk wool fibers, you can rest assured you're receiving a high-quality product you can trust. Grown in New Zealand from free-range, pasture-fed sheep, then processed right here in the USA, all of our wool is scoured using only gentle NPEO-free detergents without bleach. It then goes through a rigorous quality control process to ensure its integrity.

Why So Many are Switching to FIRM Mattresses?

In the last 16 years of working at White Lotus Home, I am surprised by the number of people that prefer a Firm Mattress and choose our Organic Boulder Mattresses.

The Boulder is the firmest mattress we hand make in the USA, but only since 2007, not 1981 when White Lotus Home was established.

After taking over this great company in 2006, local customers practically begged me to make our already semi-firm mattresses even firmer. Their words were something like “If you make it as firm as I need it, I will buy one for the entire family” and they eventually did and continued to tell their friends and family. Also, a cool company in Boulder Colorado had a similar request and our Boulder Mattress was born.

Our Boulder Mattresses are rolled up, vacuumed, and shipped all over the world now. Below are the most popular reasons why our Organic Cotton Boulder Style Mattress, was the best selling White Lotus Home Mattress in 2020.   


   






✅ Back doctors suggested trying a firm mattress. 

✅ “This is the way I slept the best back in my country”

✅ In need of more support due to a recent medical condition.

✅ Many physically active clients report that their body feels better every morning.

✅ Tired of sleeping on the floor...

GOTS Organic Boulder Dreamton

DON’T just take my word for it, below are recent reviews found on our page.

Hannah C (Greendale, Wisconsin)  November 30, 2020. Have been sleeping on it every night and we love it! We wanted a very firm mattress and this fits the bill. I would recommend not only this mattress but this company to anyone that needs a new mattress. The quality is clearly better than any mattress I've ever owned. It is handmade but very durable.

Francis J (Minneapolis, Minnesota) August 14, 2020. This mattress is nice and firm! Maybe we should have got the 8" instead of the 7" because sheets don't fit very tight and my partner does not like creases in the sheets, but thats on us. The mattress firmness level is awesome!

Andrea O (Virginia Beach, Virginia) March 25, 2020. We ordered this mattress for our son to move him out of a crib to a "big-boy" bed and he is stoked. I am excited because, like our daughter, I know that he is sleeping on a healthy mattress! Since *** all of our bedding (mattresses and pillows) has been purchased from White Lotus.

Tina G. March 04, 2020. This is my third mattress from White Lotus. I'm very pleased w/this mattress. I hadn't ordered the one wrapped in wool (w/in a cotton cover of course) before, cuz I was afraid it would bother my immune issues, but this time I did and it's perfect. They all come w/a slight odor from the natural materials, but it does dissipate over time. This mattress is very comfortable, yet very firm which I love. I highly recommend it if you like a firm mattress w/no flame retardants.

Maureen M December 15, 2018. I have many products from WHITE LOTUS and honestly, like them all! Am impressed with their philosophy of sleep and design! The Boulder mattress is the best mattress I have had, and have had many over the years. In an effort to achieve comfort related to scoliosis and MS mobility, I have tried many and conclude that the Boulder offers the most comfort, support.

Alora November 27, 2017. I really like this mattress. It is firm and really helped ease my back problems I was having with previous mattresses that were too soft. When I bought the mattress I paid a little extra for handles, which is incredibly helpful for rotating the mattresses and move in/move out.

Sam April 23, 2017. I love this mattress! It is very firm as described, super supportive; it also acts as a natural temperature regulator because of the wool and I don't get too hot or too cold sleeping on it. It just feels very comfortable and the way a bed should feel. I would highly recommend to anyone who likes a firm mattress!

Shelly December 15, 2018. We absolutely love this mattress. It is so supportive, and I love knowing that I am sleeping on a health-promoting bed.

WHY I’LL ONLY BUY ORGANIC SHEETS

CREDIT TO:  Annmarie Skin Care > Healthy Lifestyle > Why I’ll Only Buy Organic Sheets

yoann-boyer-276971

Contributed by our friend Destiny

Any time I buy new clothes or sheets, the first thing I always do is wash them. Detergent, warm cycle, cool rinse. I do it because that’s just what you do, because factories are dirty, and what we buy travels a long way before it makes its way to us.

Short of sanitary reasons, I never gave this little routine of mine much thought, until I got pregnant with my first child and decided, quite suddenly, I wanted to know exactly what I was washing out of my clothes and sheets every time I bought them.

What I learned was that an industry responsible for clothing us and tucking us in at night was doing a lot more than just transporting and dying our fabrics. What goes into the materials that spend all of their time right up against our skin was, to be honest, pretty sketchy. That was when I decided enough was enough — organic sheets and clothes, from here on out.

flame retardant chemicals and our sheets

First things first, your sheets, your bedding, your clothes — just about any conventional fabric you come into contact with — is treated with  flame retardant chemicals. There are federal manufacturing regulations that often require it, particularly since most fabrics these days are synthetic and particularly quick to burn.

When I looked into flame retardant chemicals further, I learned that, while they had come a long way from the proven carcinogenic PBDEs of the 70s, these new chemicals were still linked to reproductive and respiratory disease, and were proven endocrine system disruptors.

As I looked at crib sheets and onesies, the reality of that set in — these fabrics would be right up against my brand new baby’s face.

pesticide exposure in our clothes and bedding

When I had officially written polyester and nylon off, it occurred to me that natural fibers, at the very least, had to be better. They weren’t made of petroleum products, and they didn’t require as much, or sometimes any, flame retardants to be safe to use.

What I didn’t realize at the time was that conventionally grown cotton consumes 24% of the world’s insecticides every year, and 11% of the world’s pesticides. Ironically, this fluffy, pure white plant was one of the dirtiest crops in the world.

Cotton and other fibers go through a lot of processes before they wind up hanging on store racks, but were they being adequately rinsed of pesticides? In a world bent on reassuring us of their safety, I wasn’t so sure.

stripping toxic chemicals from fabric

All of this information lead me to one conclusion — I was about to start taking my new clothes routine a lot more seriously. The bottom line was, I’d rather take my chances with fire than flame retardants, and so I started stripping all of our sheets, clothes, and towels.

There isn’t much scientific research out there to back up how to remove flame retardants and pesticides from clothes, but ultimately, my research seemed to point towards breaking down those chemical bonds with what was essentially an acid soak.

I mixed up big buckets of vinegar and lemon juice to break down the chemical bonds between the flame retardants and the fibers. I don’t know how much it helped, but it gave me peace of mind to see that water change colors. For 48 hours, I soaked buckets of fabrics, then washed them thoroughly, hoping to make the best with what I had.

It’s worth noting though that removing flame retardant chemicals from flammable materials is a catch-22. On the one hand, I felt better about snuggling up next to these fabrics, but on the other, I was trading chemicals for an increased flammability.

Which was worse? I’m still not sure.

the alternatives i can’t live without

I decided I didn’t want to have to keep making these choices.

I decided, from here on out, my family would spend one third of their life in bed next to cotton sheets that weren’t grown with pesticides. They would sleep in pajamas that didn’t have to be saturated with chemicals to keep them from bursting into flames. And we would support clean, sustainable agriculture that didn’t endlessly consume our planet’s resources.

I didn’t throw everything out and start from scratch. Even as I write this, I’m sitting in an ancient black polyester spandex tank top. Not being of celebrity wealth status, replacing my entire wardrobe and linens collection all at once just wasn’t in the cards, nor was it how I wanted to do this.

What I did instead was start looking at alternatives, so that when it came time to replace those hole-y socks or those threadbare sheets, I could do so with materials I felt great about buying.

ORGANIC COTTON

Soft and breathable and made 100% without pesticides or insecticides, organic cotton is my go-to fabric for sheets and pillowcases, in addition to socks, underwear, and shirts. It’s easy to care for, and getting cheaper all the time.

WOOL

Wool is a natural insulator, which doesn’t just mean that it keeps you warm, but keeps excess heat out, too. Naturally antimicrobial, it’s worth the extra trouble to treat it delicately in the wash, and I LOVE it for duvets and shirts!

NATURAL LATEX

Memory foam, move over, because your eco-friendly buddy is here, and he doesn’t stink. Natural latex is a natural thermal regulator, so it doesn’t make you sweat like a memory foam mattress does, it lasts longer, and it’s free of flame retardant nasties. If you like the floating-on-a-cloud effect of sleeping on a memory foam mattress, you need to try a latex mattress—you’ll never look back!

KAPOK FIBER

This interesting little fiber feels like silk and cotton had a baby together. Soft and fine, it’s a great vegan alternative to down for pillows and duvets!

BUCKWHEAT HULLS

I discovered buckwheat hulls when I met a girl who slept on a buckwheat hull mattress, and it blew my MIND. They feel like a beanbag when stuffed into a pillowcase, and are incredible because they’re non-toxic AND 100% biodegradable.

we’re all just doing the best we can

I get a lot of funny looks from friends and family when I pass up crazy sales on sheets and baby clothes because of what they’re made of.

“Huh? Wha—. But…it’s on sale!”

And I get it, because in the end, we’re all just trying to keep our families clothed and our beds made, and what they’re actually made of is often the furthest thing from our minds.

I’m not perfect. Sometimes I see an ugly Christmas sweater at Target, and I lose all resolve — retail instinct kicks in, and before I know it, I’m on my way home with a tinsel-covered abomination.

But now that I know better, I try to do better. I only buy organic sheets. I’m really picky about the clothes I buy for my family. And when I shop, I look at more than just the price tag. I see the manufacturing plants that were responsible for producing what I’m putting in my cart, and I take pause, I think about what that purchase means a little more before I make it.

If you’re ready to know what’s in your sheets and feel good about what you sleep on, check out White Lotus Home. Organic sheets, mattresses, and pillows for babies, kids, adults, and even futons, this store has it all!

Safe Sleep First!

In Bedrooms all over the USA, Americans Favor Craftsmanship & Natural Materials

White Lotus Home – Natural Mattress & Bedding Company  

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – 

Amid growing concern about hazardous chemicals in bedroom products, more Americans are questioning the safety of conventional bedding. For many parents-to-be, the choice of a crib mattress is just as important --- if not more so --- than the crib itself. Infants are particularly vulnerable to chemical exposure, as their bodily systems are still developing and they spend the largest portion of their day sleeping.

For over 36 years, White Lotus Home has worked to create the ultimate in healthy, earth-friendly, and comfortable sleep environments. Our GOTS- and USDA-certified Organic Cotton fiber and fabrics are all that we use to hand make organic bedding. Our mattresses, pillows and bedding are made differently from any others on the market. Each product is crafted by hand, one-at-a-time from raw, unprocessed fibers free of dyes, perfumes, formaldehyde, or other chemicals. Unlike conventional mattresses, pillows and bedding that can off-gas both initially and as they break down over time, White Lotus Home products promote a clean air quality and reduce chemical exposure in the bedroom.

Common fears? Exposure to a toxic stew of chemicals and possible carcinogens such as formaldehyde, benzene, acetone, and naphthalene, all of which can be toxic to the lungs, liver, thyroid, and nervous system. A group of environmental engineers in Texas and Finland  sampled polyurethane foam and polyester foam padding  from 20 new and old mattresses. The new mattresses emitted volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), which are also found in household cleaners. While the Environmental Protection Agency remains uncertain how volatile 

organic compounds found in homes can affect residents' health, they maintain that the chronic toxicity and carcinogenicity of common VOC’s are directly correlated with overall indoor air quality.

What’s more, newer mattresses emit chemicals at a rate four times faster than old mattresses,  according to researchers  at University of Texas Cockrell School of Engineering and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, thereby increasing exposure of toxins to the most vulnerable population. The application of body heat only increased the emissions.

Because concentrations of VOC’s were strongest in immediate breathing zone, infants who spend upwards of 50-60% of their days sleeping, inhale air at a significantly higher volume relative to body weight than adults, they experience over 10 times the inhalation exposure of adults.

"It's good to be alerted to the fact that mattresses are a significant source of chemicals in an infant's environment," said Chemist and indoor air quality expert Charles J. Weschler, adjunct professor of environmental and occupational medicine at Rutgers University. 

By contrast, if one was to open a White Lotus Home Pure Cotton Dreamton Mattress, you would find only three ingredients: an interior of raw, unprocessed batting layers of GOTS- and USDA Organic cotton, a wrapping of virgin wool as a natural flame retardant and an outer layer of GOTS Organic Cotton Twill Fabric.
