Throughout the day, our bodies are absorbing toxins either through our skin, by ingestion, or by breathing them in. Each product we purchase can potentially impact our health in a positive or negative way. As consumers, we must continually make educated decisions; each decision potentially has a cumulative effect on our overall health.

When it comes to our home environment; “recent studies show that levels of harmful chemicals indoors , are on average 3 to 5 times, higher than levels outdoors.'(Scientific American). In our bedrooms, where we spend time for restoration, we are exposed to bedding that has been made with cotton grown with pesticides and mattresses that have been treated with chemicals to make them fire retardant, potentially creating serious health hazards.
Holy Lamb Organics is dedicated to creating exceptional, natural bedding products. They point out that while we are resting, we breathe 15 to 20 times a minutes, and infants breathe as much as 30 to 60 times a minute. This is not the time you want to be exposing yourself to these chemicals.
The fire retardant rules and regulations are important, but compliance can be achieved without the use of chemicals. Holy Lamb Organics provides a more natural solution; a natural bedding mattress wrapped with thick outer layers of wool. Wool is naturally fire retardant and passes every fire test available without the use of chemicals. In addition, wool is naturally dust and mite free, resists molds, and is hypo-allergenic. Most importantly, Holy Lamb Organics only uses premium eco-wool from sustainable sources in Northern California.
Holy Lamb Organics carries organic bedding including organic comforters and certified organic cotton sheets. This is important because cotton is one of the top 3 most heavily sprayed crops with herbicides and pesticides. They also supply wool mattress pads, mattress toppers and wool pillows. They have a great line of organic cotton towels and a baby bedding collection.
You can go totally organic with Holy Lamb Organics. They are committed to promoting health and well-being through their line of all-natural bedding products that are produced using sustainable and ecological practices. They are a zero waste company for all of their manufacturing by-products.
What tickled me was how dedicated they are to the health of their employees and their environment. Even the facility is chemical and scent free. They only use natural, bio-degradable soap to clean their shop. The employees come to work “scent free” and abstain from wearing perfume, colognes or scented hand creams. I love it!
They also participate in a Green Commuting Program, which offers cash incentives to carpool or bike to work. They all work on a community organic garden “which provides solace, herbs, vegetables, fruit, tea, cut flowers and a sense of connection with nature while in a work environment.” Sign me up!
