Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
On August 13th, 2012, nursery furniture manufacturer Argington commented on recently released advice about keeping your baby’s nursery environmentally friendly and free of harsh chemicals.
From wall paint and mattresses to wooden furniture and diapers and even the air in the room, there can be harmful environmental issues. According to the Daily Camera, Jennifer Hankey, a consultant who educated new parents on living a non-toxic lifestyle, says “the newborn mattress industry is riddled with greenwashing – deceptive, largely unregulated marketing practices that can lead consumers to believe a product is environmentally safe when it may not be.”
Hankey advises new parents to buy paints that do not contain harmful volatile organic compounds and to be sure that your crib mattress is certified as organic. She also mentions that “the best thing you can do is buy real-wood furniture” to avoid certain glues that are often used in cribs.
The article states, “keeping a baby safe from everything that’s potentially harmful is an impossible task. But a healthy nursery is doable.”
Argington spokesperson, Clay Darrohn said, “There are so many chemicals out there on everyday items that many people do not realize exist. Doing research and being aware of what is in the products you use is important when you are looking to raise your baby in a safe eco-friendly environment.”
Argington is a New York based manufacturer of fine baby furniture and nursery bedding. Proudly offering sustainable products that are organic or eco-friendly, Argington’s products are also designed with mobility and multiple uses in mind to make parents’ lives easier.
