Interviews With Toxic Free Innovators
THIS WEEK’S FEATURED ARCHIVED SHOWS
Make Your Own Mattress
Today my guest is Deborah Brenton, owner of DIY Natural Bedding. We’ll be talking about how you can make your own custom mattress with the materials she provides, and why you should. Deborah is a foodie, a forager, and strongly believes in living a natural life. In 2010 she began looking for mattresses for her children, but the only type available contained a whole host of chemicals. Her Do It Yourself attitude kicked in and she gathered resources to create her own mattresses from scratch. She soon realized that other people share her natural living convictions but lack resources in the bedding market. DIY Natural Bedding was started with this goal in mind: to provide affordable, natural and chemical free bedding products. Deborah now offers natural components that customers can use to build their own mattresses, toppers and pillows. Her products include wool from local farms, 100% natural latex, and GOTS certified organic fabric. She also offers sewing patterns for those who would like to save a dime by sewing their own mattress ticking and custom latex cuts for any DIY furniture project. www.diynaturalbedding.com

What’s Happening With Toxic Free Talk Radio
The Monday after Christmas I was surprised to receive an email from the network saying they could no longer produce my radio show. They were very sorry because they loved the show, but changes on their end made it impossible for us to continue.
I love doing the show and it’s likely that live interviews will return at some point as podcasts or a radio show on another network, but for now I have my work cut out for me to transfer 386 mp3 files from the network site to mine, and change all the links in the archives. It will all be an upgrade though because my site will now have the shows directly in a media player that works with all devices.
I’m also going to continue making transcripts for all the shows that don’t already have transcripts, and edit all the files to remove commercials and music for a more seamless listening experience. These are great interviews and I am making sure they are being preserved for future reference.
Each week I’ll be posting three featured shows from the archives and include them in the newsletter. There is a lot to listen to and learn from!
