Nov 24, 2015 10:00AM
Organic Living has begun offering certified organic sofas at its store, along with many other healthy home products that include a wide selection of natural and organic household items, mattresses, baby clothes, cleaners, paints, flooring and more.
Savvy Rest, a small manufacturer in Virginia, is now producing sofas made with natural and organic materials that are free of hazardous compounds, particularly chemical flame retardants. Savvy Rest hand-built natural sofas feature solid maple frames and mortise-and-tenon joinery. Purchasers can choose certified organic hemp, organic cotton duck or an organic hemp/cotton blend upholstery. The sofa cushions are wrapped in organic wool batting and filled with natural latex foam.
Flame retardants and other chemicals in synthetic foams and fabrics have been linked to cancer, obesity, infertility and developmental brain disorders. Pesticides from conventional cotton agriculture pollute land and water, and flame retardants and similar compounds have been found even in outdoor air and Arctic wildlife. They are especially prevalent in human blood, breast milk and brain tissue.
Natural Awakenings readers receive a $500 discount on the Savvy Rest organic sofas through Dec. 31. Location: 8342 N. 7th St., Phoenix. For more information, call 602-224-5313 or visit OrganicLivingAz.com.
