Organic Products make a New Year Greener!

The New Year is almost here.  It’s a time of celebration, reflection and resolutions.  Organic products make a New Year Greener, more eco friendly. This time of year, I’m always organizing, throwing out old and making room for new.  Part of being greener is deciding what I can do to make my lifestyle more eco friendly. I eat organic foods, even  grow organic vegetables, but buying organic products also is a great way to lesson your carbon footprint and make your life healthier.  Eco friendly products, if they truly are eco friendly, are less toxic to the environment and depending on the nature of the product less toxic for you, the consumer.  Not all eco friendly products are Organic products. There is a difference.  Take green cleaning products for instance it can be made out of less toxic ingredients, but might not be organic ingredients.  When buying such products as green cleaning products, be sure to know the difference. Organic means no chemicals were used. Eco friendly just means that it has less toxicity or less carbon footprint than mainstream.  Often times in green cleaning products botanical ingredients might be used, but not organic botanical ingredients.  Still, product for product botanical is far better than chemicals, if the choice for organic is not an option.  When shopping for your everyday products, it is always good to know how green a product is, how earth friendly and non-toxic it is, before buying it.  Generally speaking Organic is the purest and best option.

New Year’s resolutions can be fun!  Being greener can be educational, fun and a new, healthier lifestyle for the entire family.  It doesn’t have to be hum drum, it can actually be creative, exciting.  For us, it is exciting learning a new and better way of helping the environment and our family health. Starting with buying Organic Products is a great way to begin.  Once you go Organic, it’s hard to go back to chemicals. It feels good! You can taste, smell and feel the difference of an Organic product versus a chemical equal.  Shop for our full line of products at www.mypumpkindoodle.com

Natural Bedding

With cooler weather here window and doors are closed the indoor air quality of your home is more important.  We spend 8 hours or more in our bedrooms each day. The amount of toxins in the air in our bedrooms is higher than one might think.  Natural Bedding is important.  It’s what’s closest to us while sleeping.  Mainstream bedding can be toxic.  Open a new package of sheets or a blanket and you can smell the chemicals.  This is why most people immediately wash the bedding and may even air it out prior to washing.    Unfortunately washing doesn’t get all the chemicals out.  Using Natural bedding can be beneficial to your health and is much more comfortable and soft than mainstream chemical bedding. Since our bedding is closest to us while sleeping some might say it is more important than anything else in the house to be free of chemicals.  Spending time shopping for Organic bedding or Natural bedding such as Organic cotton sheets, Bamboo Sheets or Natural wool bedding is very important for a healthier lifestyle and body.

Feel the difference that an Organic Bed can make, start with Natural bedding and then add an Organic mattress or Organic mattress topper.  You’ll be glad you did! Check out our complete line of bedding www.mypumpkindoodle.com
