Greener, Safer Bedroom

In sleep we are all equal – Spanish Proverb

On this week’s show we’ll be talking to Walter Bader, author of Toxic Bedrooms, Your Guide to a Safe Night’s Sleep. Mr. Bader is also the founder of OMI (Organic Mattresses Inc.). He takes chemical-free sleep very seriously, and if you read his book, you will too.

I’ve had the true pleasure of sleeping on one of OMI’s organic eco-wool wrapped, natural shredded rubber pillows for about a month now. It’s a little heavier than my other pillows to be sure, but it is extremely comfortable. The shredded rubber is made from the most eco-friendly natural rubber, which apparently is not always the case when the term ‘natural’ rubber is used.

I’ve learned almost more than I want to know about the hazards lurking in my bedroom from seemingly innocuous things like my nice, expensive mattress! Mr. Bader’s book is full of wonderful sleep-related quotes as well as resources on the types of toxins in everyday bedding and other elements of a bedroom that we normally don’t think too carefully about.

There are several studies carefully sited and interpreted, such as ‘Mattress Emissions Studies’ on page 58. Who knew our mattresses were emitting potentially harmful VOCs!?!?

Please join us tonight to learn about solutions for a healthier more natural sleeping environment.
