First Look at what type of dye is being used- Look for low impact dyes- which are usually dyes derived from natural or vegetable resources. Planet Green says ‘there isn’t a certification program in place here in the U.S. to certify “low-impact” dyes (there’s something called the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 in Europe), but companies like Q Collection, Mod Green Podand the Cradle-to-Cradle certified offerings from Climatex and Victor Innovatex are good choices’
Before you go to the trouble of reupholstering- Try using organic sheets to reupholster- You can find organic, natural sheets almost anywhere.
