Do you know what's in your products?

My journey to a greener home: eliminating all chemicals such as toxic fire retardants from your home is not an easy task. I've a sleeping bag I got a few years ago for my daughter from Pottery Barn for Kids. At the time, I was not as knowledgeable as I am now about all the chemicals going into our products. But now, I want to know what's in it and what to do with it! I called Pottery Barn and ask if the polyester filling was treated with any fire retardants. Customer service did not know, after insisting they said "it is made in China and we don't have any info"! After really insisting someone is going to call me back. Will keep you posted.

Let me know the challenges you are facing in greening your home.
