Earth Day is coming up on Sunday, April 22, and there are many different ways you can celebrate. You can plant a tree, start your own garden, switch to e-bills, volunteer at a local Earth Day event, or start with something as simple as greening your bedroom.
Here are 4 ways you can celebrate Earth Day by making your bedroom green:
Do you check the ingredient label on the back of your sheets before you buy them? Studies are showing you should! Much like certain foods we look out for, bedding can also be made with chemicals that are harmful to our bodies.
Those wrinkle-resistant sheets that look nice and are low-maintenance are often treated with formaldehyde to keep them that way! And fancy colored sheets are dyed with inks that are made of heavy metals that can irritate your skin. Like they say, “even salt looks like sugar.”
Organic cotton sheets are a good option if you are looking for an eco-friendly alternative as they take less water to produce and are not treated with toxic pesticides or cleaners. Just remember to read the label next time you are shopping for bedding!

This weekend (June 3) was National Cancer Survivors Day, a day for those with a history of cancer to celebrate milestones, connect with one another, and recognize their support network. Most, if not all of us, know someone in our family or community who has been affected by a cancer diagnosis. In fact, roughly 38% of women in the U.S. – or more than one in three – will develop cancer during their lifetime. Given those odds, it seems only fitting to reflect on three practical things to know about reducing our risk.
