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.

Still feeling a little skeptical about how an all-natural mattress can directly improve your daily life? We talk a lot about how going green with your bedding and furniture benefits the environment, but for some, investing in a more natural bedroom hits even closer to home.
This week on the blog, White Lotus Home founder, Elizabeth, shares her incredible story about how switching to all-natural mattresses and bedding changed her life and improved the daily health of her children. She writes:
"My first experience with White Lotus Home products was when my firstborn was 7 years old. He is now 14. He was born very early, at 29 weeks, and only weighed 2 lbs 13 ounces. He spent about 9 weeks in the NICU, including his first Christmas and New Years. It was a very tough time for us all.
At that time, I had not been informed or made aware of the chemicals and toxins in mattresses and bedding, nor the health benefits of pure natural fibers instead of the conventional products we had been accustomed to. That all started to become popular at that time. He is my firstborn, so I made sure to do everything by the book as best as I could. Luckily, a few years later, my brother, Marlon, started to work at White Lotus Home, and that is when we all became more aware of how important our home environment is to our health.
I don't suffer from allergies and neither does my husband, but one day my son got a cold that would not go away. He would wake up with puffy eyes every morning and could not stop coughing most of the day. After about 2-3 weeks of giving him cold medicines, one doctor decided to test him for allergies. Poor thing was allergic to everything from dogs and cats, to dust and many environmental allergens. Fortunately, Marlon was able to provide us with information on the importance of wool and natural bedding. He explained to my husband and I that wool is a natural dust mite repellant and a natural fire retardant that is also used in mattresses. Marlon suggested we change all of my son's bedding to include wool fibers, so that is what we did.
In a few weeks, he had a wool topper, wool pillows, and a wool duvet. Shortly after that, his mattress was upgraded, and he still uses it now. It was astonishing to me that after all of his bedding was changed to include pure wool, he no longer woke up with a stuffy nose and his coughing pretty much stopped. Ever since then I have made sure our bedding was always natural, and of course my entire home has been transformed into only using natural mattresses, futons, throw pillows, bedding, and natural furniture to ensure we avoid toxins and chemicals in our home.
When my second son was born in 2008 and also decided to join the world earlier than expected at 33 weeks, weighing 4 lb. 15 oz., we were ready for him with his organic cotton and wool crib mattress. I even use his crib mattress as a cushion now on the floor for him to read or watch TV.
Not only do I feel blessed that I was able to learn about natural products at the best time of my life, I continue to learn how to keep toxins out of our home by using plants to help clean the air, natural ways to clean our home, natural soaps and shampoos, and also using essential oils to help keep us healthy. It has just been a way of life we are accustomed to, and I am glad that now my boys know the importance of keeping harmful toxins out of our home and will hopefully be able to take it with them towards adulthood and do the same with their families. Now that my boys are 9 & 14, I am happy to say that even though they were both born as preemies, I have been able to give them the healthiest life I can. They’ve grown into young boys who are active in sports, healthy, strong, smart, and just amazing to be around."
While we believe very strongly in creating products that are safe for our planet, our mission at White Lotus is to educate the world on the importance of living in a healthier home and the benefits these changes bring to our health.
