Importance of Organic Play Quilts

Every mother wants to have a colorful, bright and attractive room for their baby.  The problem with most of the mainstream crib bedding is it is loaded with toxins.  From the babies crib sheets to the play quilt the bedding is very important.  Babies spend a lot of time sleeping and in their bed, chemicals in their bed off gas and baby can inhale those toxins.  Natural mothers look for safe and attractive bedding for their baby.  Organic cotton is the purest of fabrics for your young child.  Birch Organics makes the most attractive play quilts made from the purest of Organic cotton and quality made that surpasses any mainstream play quilt.

Bright, colorful and Organic make our play quilts unique.  Babies loves the bright colors and Mom’s love the softness and purity of the Birch fabric.  Bright elephants, giraffes and trees among other colorful animals, make a lovely crib set.  Add an Organic cotton bumper and you have an adorable crib set.  Our play quilts will last past the crib years and into blankey time for later on when your child is older.  Having a special blankey and making sure it is chemical free is important. Children not only inhale toxins from their bedding, they also put it in their mouth.  These mainstream chemicals have been linked to asthma and allergies among other more serious health issues.

Why Natural Homes use Green products? What’s all the hype about greening your home? So many times people think that having a natural home means eating Organic foods, using filtered water, using a re-usable shopping bags and recycling.  That is only part of the process.

Educate yourself on product ingredients so you will know a toxic product using greenwashing, and you can make educated decisions about the products you bring into your home for your family.  Natural homes encompass so much more than eating healthy, re-using and recycling. Natural homes use true green products such as organic mattresses, natural bedding, non-toxic drinking bottles and avoid using products with toxic chemicals in their bath and body products, kitchen products or pet beds that can contaminate the home. The air we breathe in our home can be the most toxic air we breathe.  Our home contains many toxins we are not aware of such as, flooring, carpet, drapes, furniture and paint.  Unless you build a new all certified Green home, you have toxins in your home that can’t be avoided.  These products off gas continually and are trapped inside your home.  Even with air filters, it might not completely clean the air of these toxins. Green parents know that indoor air quality is important. That’s why they try and minimize the toxins in their home by using Green products that will create a healthier more natural home for their family.  Natural mothers shop for the most economical and natural, non-toxic or organic home products so they can create more of a natural home affordably.
