A couch that won't kill you

Okay, I'm being hyperbolic. Your couch can't kill you, but it can be a very unhealthy addition to your home. Ever since seeing this documentary about the toxic chemical flame retardants injected into foam in furniture and lots of baby products, I've been obsessed with finding a healthy couch. The 1975 California law that effectively required manufacturers to include these chemicals was changed late last year, which means in the next couple years more and more couches will be made without these chemicals. But I needed a couch now and it turns out most couches are still made the toxic way. I looked everywhere and made lots of inquiries. My saving grace ended up being a new, online company called Joybird. I was blown away by their customer service and the functionality of their website. They make their products in the US, without toxic chemicals, and they have an amazing return policy. So I bought this couch and it couldn't have been easier.
