The most important area in your life to start, or continue, to make ethical purchases would be your bedroom.  Unless you work from home, you are probably in your bedroom for the most hours of the day.  Bedtime is especially important because at a very close proximity you are breathing in whatever your bedding is off-gassing.  Below is a list of American made bedding products that we use, or have on our list of items to buy next list.

ABC Home
Made In: California, USA
ABC Home American Made Bed
Description: For my next bed purchase, I think I'd be ready for this American made bed with headboard. ABC Home's Sonoma bed seems like a great choice. The bed is modern, yet still exudes enough warmth. While I very much like this color, it also comes in a variety of other soothing tones. The Sonoma has a slipcovered headboard and base, which uses a combination of linen and cotton. Foam core and soft wrap are used for the fill. The fabric must be dry cleaned professionally. 

Social Responsibility:
This bed is responsibly made in California using 90%
recycled steel legs.

    Matteo American Made Bedding Matteo American Made Bed Cover 
    When I purchased my Matteo, Made in America bedding, my bed was instantly transformed into a luxurious haven of relaxation. I actually love making my bed in the morning now because Matteo makes any room look beautiful.  Matteo's mission to create quality product shines through and through. The colors and attention to detail are impeccable. My favorite aspect of the Matteo line is their reference to vintage fabrics.  They seek to recreate the look and feel of well-loved textiles, which requires the perfect amount of softness, yet stability.

    Social Responsibility: 
    Matteo was formed specifically to showcase American manufacturing using beautifully sewn textiles. Fabrics can be sourced internationally, but are cut, sewn and dyed to order locally in Los Angeles.

    Company: Casper
    Made In: Georgia and Pennsylvania
    Casper American Made Mattress
    Truth be told, I bought a mattress for all too much money because I was adamant about not sleeping on anything toxic. I sought guidance from an in-store mattress expert at a high-end store known for sustainable goods. I bought an 'organic, all natural, non-toxic' and wonderfully comfortable bed. In order to prepare for this post, I was delighted to be able to recommend my own mattress, but the company Pure as Nature has since gone under.  When it is time to replace my mattress, it seems that there are some really good options in the marketplace. Personally, I was not keen on the idea of a mattress that arrived in a box, but I must say that after researching Casper I learned they manufacture in America, they are less than a quarter of the price of a high end mattress. They also have certifications behind their eco-friendly policies.  

    Social Responsibility: Casper mattresses are all Made in America and are all OEKO-Tex and Certi-Pur certified, which means they are produced without chemicals that are harmful to the ozone. This is regulated by the Consumer Safety Commision and emits Low VOC emissions for indoor air quality, which is below .5 parts per million for a Casper mattress.
