Toxins Are In Your Baby's Products!
If you are an expectant mother or already a mother of a newborn or toddler, there are many hidden dangers that could harm your baby. The Futon Shop has many Organic crib mattresses that are 100% organic, plus with a doctor's note, we can eliminate boric acid, a fire retardant. The state of California and federal law mandates all furnishing and bedding companies put a fire retardants in their products. Since we, at The Futon Shop hand make our mattresses and have full control what goes inside, we empower consumers to be able to ask for fire retardants and chemicals to be omitted from their bed.
The video below explains more of what is going into your baby's products.

Why Should Your Care about Pesticides:

Scientists now know enough about the long-term consequences of ingesting these powerful chemicals to advise that we minimize our consumption of pesticides.
The List of fruits and vegetables was developed by EWG analysts, based on data from nearly 96,000 tests for pesticide residues in produce conducted between 2000 and 2008 and collected by the US department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug administration.
