Not Just a Comfy Mattress: #RealReform

One of the many things that makes us, here at The Clean Bedroom, so proud to work with such a wonderful group of manufacturers, is that they stand for more than just their product and their bottom line. They are here to serve you, and make your life a healthier one - just as is our mission.

One shining example is our friends at Naturepedic, whose CEO Barry Cik today spent the day among US congressmen and women fighting for the reform of chemicals in consumer products.

Twitter was ablaze today with updates and cheering for those standing up for this vital change (you can see all the streams by searching #kickTSCA and/or #RealReform). 

"On behalf of the American Sustainable Business Council, Companies For Safer Chemicals Coalition, and on behalf not only of
my children and grandchildren, but on behalf of your children and grandchildren, I’m asking you to do the right thing again. Our chemicals are, for the most part, not regulated.
Industry reportedly produces 250 pounds of chemicals every year 
for every man, woman, and child in this country, and there are over 80,000 chemicals available for industry to use, with very little regulation or oversight for any of it. This is not good for business." ~Barry Cik 

We just want to congratulate Mr. Cik and all our friends at Naturepedic and thank them for their work yesterday and everyday to make our lives and the lives of our loved ones healthier!
