WHAT IS A WEIGHTED BLANKET?
Weighted blankets are exactly what they sound like — they’re filled, heavy blankets that create Deep Pressure Stimulation, which gives that joyful feeling of being hugged or swaddled.
Weighted blankets have been scientifically proven to enhance serotonin and melatonin levels, which are natural chemicals in the brain that help reduce anxiety, increase relaxation, and improve sleep quality.
THE POWER OF DEEP PRESSURE STIMULATION
SLEEP DEEPER, NATURALLY ——
Wrapping yourself up with a Plagoods weighted blanket feels like a firm, but gentle bear hug. The evenly distributed weight against the body provides Deep Pressure Stimulation, which boosts the production of serotonin and melatonin in the brain.
SAY HELLO TO MORE SLEEP ——
Eight hours of sleep per night? No problem! Our weighted blanket helps develop peace of mind and increases relaxation. You’ll fall asleep faster, longer, and wake up feeling refreshed.
THE MOST SUSTAINABLE WEIGHTED BLANKET
WHERE DOES PLA COME FROM?
Our weighted blanket is made of Polylactic Acid (PLA) fabric, which is derived from 100% naturally occuring sugars.
PLA fabrics produce no pollution during its manufacturing. Since PLA is a natural farm product, it requires no drilling or mining.
BIODEGRADABLE & COMPOSTABLE
PLA fabrics are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable — they return naturally to the soil at the end of their long shelf life, releasing carbon dioxide and water.
THE WORLD'S FIRST PLA WEIGHTED BLANKET
WHY CHOOSE PLA FABRIC?
01. PLA uses 68% less fossil fuel energy than plastic.
02. PLA fibers use 20 to 50% less fossil fuel resources than petroleum-based polymers such as polyester, nylon, and acrylic.
03. Producing 500,000 tonnes of PLA requires less than 0.5% of the annual US corn crop.
04. To make 1kg of PLA requires just 1.6kg of sugar.
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
We use Polylactic Acid fibers extracted from renewable resources such as sugar beets and corn. This helps reduce carbon emissions and landfill use.
GOOD FOR YOU, GOOD FOR THE PLANET
Our blankets offer a silky-smooth texture on an anti-bacterial surface. They provide superior ventilation, flexibility, moisture-absorption, and shape retention.
NON-TOXIC RECYCLED GLASS BEADS
THE BETTER FILLER
We fill our blankets with non-toxic recycled glass beads, as it takes a lot less to equal the same weight as the commonly-used plastic poly pellet fillers.
Unlike the bumpy texture of poly pellets, our micro glass beads inside the blanket feel smoother — much like sand — providing you with superior comfort every time. And with top-quality grid-like stitching, you’ll never have to worry about them leaking.
WHO IS PLAGOODS?
At Plagoods, we’re dedicated to improving the physical and mental well-being of those who have trouble sleeping at night, using only sustainable resources and natural solutions backed by science.
We believe that enjoying a good quality of life within a sustainable environment is critical. That’s why we adopted eco-friendly materials for our manufacturing process, making a blanket that’s fully compostable at the end of its useful life. We aim to reduce the negative human impact on the environment, while giving everyone a good night’s sleep they deserve.
