Organic Bath Towels by Pottery Barn
I came across some new products from Pottery Barn that boast an Eco friendly edge, it really got me thinking…
Towels, sheets and the like are some of the most chemical filled home furnishings around. Manufactures use surface finishes and scent to sell these goods. The idea of purchasing organic bath products really struck a cord in me. Why expose yourself to harsh chemicals, especially during sleep. I did a little research and this is what I found.
The Oeko Tex Standard for textiles is a system that tests for harmful substances in home furnishings. This includes testing for PH balance, formaldehyde, pesticides, allergy inducing dyestuffs etc. yuck, yuck and yuck.
Pottery Barn has come out with a line of towels, bathrobes and shower curtains that carry the seal of approval. They are oh so PB but nonetheless they are chemical free. I think they are rather nice.
