As you prepare to send off your loved ones (new or returning) to college, we'd like to suggest four organic and eco-friendly essentials to make their dorm room a cleaner and greener place.
Start where they will spend most of their time
Sleep is essential for a successful college life and it should start in a healthy way. Thus, buying a good mattress is the most important investment you can make. The Verse Organic Mattress does not contain harmful chemicals. Organic cotton fillings over premium encase coils provide added cushion and promote airflow to reduce heating. An added bonus is the mattress ships compressed and roll-packed for easy delivery and setup.
Under the sheets
Organic cotton bedding will ensure the most comfortable, healthiest and greenest bed for your loved one. We’ve made it easy for you to go organic with our Loni or Portland sheet set. Crafted from cotton grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Your purchase will also help drive organic cotton farming practices which is safer for farmers and their families.
Tackling laundry
For most college kids, this will be their first experience being fully in charge of their laundry. Traditional detergent contains harmful chemicals. We can make it easier for them by teaching them to how to do laundry in a healthier way by providing them an organic laundry detergent. Seventh Generation laundry detergent has no dyes, optical brighteners or synthetic fragrances, and it gives you great results in HE and standard machines and works in all water temperatures.
Quick Drying Towels
Another dorm room essential that can save your some quarters when doing your laundry is our Fouta bath towels. They are super soft, lightweight, and fast absorbent which are perfect for everyday use. The best part is that they visually appealing and can easily transition from a towel to a scarf and blanket.
