Organic products are grown without any genetically modification or any chemicals (pesticides while growing or chemicals while processed). According the Organic Trade Association website, Organic means “A production system that is managed in accordance with the Act and regulations in this part to respond to site-specific conditions by integrating cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.”{USDA National Organic Program (NOP) Regulation at 7 CFR 205:}

Below are five surprising benefits when choosing to go green in the bedroom.

1) There are no worries that Sleeping on a chemical free mattress has harmed the earth in any way, when purchasing a mattress that has chemicals introduces water pollution from the pesticides in the soil and water.
