Worried about emissions of potentially toxic fumes into your nursery and other parts of your home？ GREENGUARD is an independent organization that tests for emissions. They also offer several different certification programs to manufacturers whose products qualify.
Per GREENGUARD， common household products (which would include crib mattresses) release hundreds of potentially harmful chemicals into the air. Poor indoor air quality is linked to asthma， upper respiratory problems and other complications.accent pillow case baby burlap rug
Naturepedic crib mattresses have been certified by GREENGUARD for the last five years. But there is now a new certification standard called “Select.”
In addition to the GREENGUARD Children &； Schools Certification Program， GREENGUARD’s previously highest standardgifts for grandma， Select certification meets the latest scientific and marketing requirements. These include：
–； Volatile organic compound (VOC) content limits
–； Lower formaldehyde emissions requirements (driven by California Air Resources Board and California Department of Public Health’s 2012 CA 01350 requirements)
–； Lead and phthalate content requirements (as defined by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Information Act)
–； Commercial furniture testing protocols (as defined by BIFMA)
According to GREENGUARD， “Participating in this elite program demonstrates market leadership in minimizing chemical exposures from products”.
We are proud to announce that Naturepedic is the first mattress manufacturer to achieve this new certification.
The Select certified products include all our crib mattress models， mattress pads for bassinetts， cradles， portable cribs， and so on， as well as all our bedding accessories.
As always， we have your best interests at heart and strive to give your baby a healthy start in life!
These directions and patterns will show you how to make warm boots for little cold feet from all reused materials. If you purchase an old wool coat at a thrift shop (think of how many pairs of boots you can make from one coat), along with an XX-large polar-fleece pullover to use for lining - then use mountain bike tire inner tube for soling - these boots are practically free. So, make a bunch, and donate some to other children with cold feet.
