On average, we spend up to one-third of our lives in bed, so it makes sense to make the bedroom as clean and green as possible. The easiest switch is with bedding. When shopping in the store, you may see bedding with promises of being wrinkle-free. But these sheets are coated with chemicals that contain formaldehyde, a known cancer-causing carcinogen. Instead, look for all-natural bedding made from cotton, linen and other natural fibers. And if you can, go organic.
