This Labor Day, celebrate by buying American made products. Statistics found by ABC Made in America tv series states that if American's buy 1% more of American made products, this will increase 200,000 jobs in the USA. Companies that manufacture products such as mattresses like The Futon Shop is a prime example of a multiplier Factory. By purchasing products made in a Multiplier factory, the products are made by multiple employees, and consumers are helping multiply the American workforce with products made in America instead of products made in other countries.

The Futon Shop is one of the longest standing companies that personally hand make each and every mattress in America. The Futon Shop has been producing futon mattresses in San Francisco since 1976. The Futon Shop uses organic and green material in all mattresses, ensuring customer's bring environmentally safe products into one's homes. This year The Futon Shop has launched a new line of healthy mattresses for babies, the Lullaby collection. All mattresses are standard size, 28”Wx52Lx6”H. All mattresses are firm, and the factory is solely for organic and green manufacturing. The Futon Shop organic cotton is brought in from America and Organic certified.

The Futon Shop's Mission is to create a better and healthy night's sleep, by providing premium green material and the best comfort in all mattresses. The cotton used in all crib mattresses are pesticide free and certified organic. The Organic Trade Association states that cotton covers 2.5% of the world's cultivated land, yet uses 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop so when possible buy organic cotton for your family and the planets health.

The toxic free fire safety organization found through studies at Duke University, that it is imperative that babies sleep on chemical free products because they are more susceptible to harsh environmental dangers. The 2010 and 2011 analysis showed baby products donated from volunteers that 80% of products tested contained hazardous or untested chemical flame retardants. the Dr Alan Greene, a professor of pediatrics at Stanford University in Palo Alto, believes although it can be expensive, if a parent spends his money on one “green” item, he said it would be an organic crib mattress. A new mother can protect an innocent child in the womb, but when it comes to the harsh reality of the dangers once they are born, parent's can protect newborns by buying a healthy mattress void of toxic chemicals that emit poor indoor air pollution. Buying organic cotton products for newborns, guarantees a safer and a healthy planet for future generations and the earth.

What makes a safe green crib mattress? Dr. Green explains that conventional crib mattresses are often made of polyurethane foam, which is basically solid petroleum, putting-off gasoline fumes that become extremely flammable. Most companies that develop mattresses with polyurethane and traditional crib mattress load up their mattresses with a multitude of deadly flame retardants that sit in the foam and emit the chemical into the air.
