You can punch and fluff your pillow, But it won't forever keep. So for your next one buy organic To create a greener sleep!
Let's face it - we spend about a third of our lives hittin' the hay, so we deserve to compliment those REM cycles with lush pillows. But they do go flat after a few years (or a few good pillow fights), keeping the bedding market alive and our landfills literally stuffed to the gills with feathers, cotton, fibers and chemicals. Next time you do the ol' switcharoo and replace your pillows, consider going eco-friendly to leave less of an impact on the environment.
