Save the world- this statement is not new to most of you reading this discussion as it is one of the ongoing trends these days. It is more than necessary that we understand our responsibility towards the environment and start adopting the eco friendly methods of living. These sustainable methods can be applied in our daily activities and style of living and believe it when you read that these methods can make your lifestyle much healthier than before. Organic bedding is one trend that is gaining a lot of popularity these days and that is why we will shed some light on the topic further in the discussion.
In the earlier times people used to make use of the natural products to make their bedding such as straw and leave. That bedding was obviously not very high on the comfort level but it was definitely friendly to the environment. The use of synthetic materials kick started from the start of the fourteenth century and it was no turning back from then. The synthetic materials are harmful to the environment but they have many benefits that can be availed only by the manufacturers of the synthetic products.
The first major benefit of using synthetic fibers for making products such as blankets and pillows is that they have much less cost of production than the natural fibers. The manufacturers obviously would want fabrics that are cheap to use and that will yield more profit and in such cases the thought of saving the environment generally takes a back seat. You have to understand that when you go shopping for bedding and pick a bed sheet that is manufactured from cent per cent cotton then you work in favor of saving the environment as cotton is purely natural in nature.
The overall cost of all the synthetic fibers is almost seventy percent less than that of the natural fibers and hence the synthetic fibers are the first choice of most of the manufacturers. The other good features of the synthetic fibers that interest the manufacturers are that these fibers are much more durable plus producing products from them is very simple. The demand for bedding is increasing with every passing day in such condition the manufacturers finds it easy and economical to use synthetic fibers. When you go out for shopping for bed sheets then how often do you read the label thoroughly? The answer to that is very obvious as most of us hardly read the label except for checking the price of the bed sheet.
The other things that we consider are the colors, design and of course the thread count. When you ignore the necessity to look at the label then you do not realize the trouble you invite as a bed sheet manufactured from a low quality synthetic fiber are laden with harmful chemicals that can be a cause of major diseases. It is a much known fact that polyester happens to be the most popular and commonly used synthetic fiber which is obviously non renewable.
You have to understand that the sheets made from synthetic fibers never breathe plus they are also not capable of dispelling the heat from the human body and that is what makes them very uncomfortable. People now-a-days are becoming smart shoppers and pick the more sustainable products for their usage. The customers these days are demanding for beddings that are friendly to the environment and help them change the present condition of this planet. Sustainable bedding is good news for you and the environment so what are you waiting for?
