Organic ironing board cover

March 20th, 2010 · No Comments · Welcome

I was just thinking about that if our beds are soaked with fire retardants that are anything but healthy, then the ironing board cover has to have some nasty chemicals too in order to not catch on fire. So… I was looking for some organic ironing board covers, and found some! This one is actually made in the USA! Yeay! Rare find nowadays. i haven’t ordered it yet, but found the words on the site very insightful:

“Hemp is extremely efficient from an environmental perspective. Hemp naturally suppresses weeds and enriches the soil it is grown in with nitrogen deposits. Hemp is grown without herbicides or pesticides and pound for pound hemp plants produce 250% more fiber than cotton. By contrast, non-organic industrial cotton uses more water and more pesticides than any other commercial crop, leaving the soil depleted.

In fact, over one quarter of all agricultural chemicals in the USA are used to grow cotton. The toxic runoff from these chemicals ultimately find their way into our waterways. The modern non-organic industrial cotton plant has been genetically engineered to the point where it is no longer a natural fiber, but rather a plant that is designed to withstand the strains of the chemical pesticides sprayed on it.

Think about that the next time you buy non-organic cotton. “
