For many young couples, pregnancy is like a gateway drug into the word of organic living. Yet, ironically, those quirky, prenatal body pillows are not generally eco-friendly, but rather covered in chemically-treated, harshly-dyed or over-bleached fabric. With their signature candy-cane or irregularly cut-out shapes, healthy versions are not ubiquitous. Likewise, parents are hardly knitting booties these days; they're certainly not sowing organic pillows. Leachco makes one of the few greener options.
Leachco's Snoogle body pillow, a benchmark product in the funky word of oddly-shaped prenatal pillows (often also used by those not expecting for proper body alignment), now comes in a more eco-friendly option than its standard counterpart. While the insert still needs work to be considered fully green, Leachco's organic Snoogle is covered in unbleached, 100% organic cotton so that at least your head and body can rest directly against a pure material. Thankfully, the lush, cream cotton is a far cry from the disappointingly stiff cotton that one often finds in organic bedding. Instead the pillow cover has the softness and natural sheen that could make a Frette sham jealous.
