Plagoods weighted blanket is here to give you a better night’s sleep

For the next few months, we’ll get to enjoy the cold weather. As we look forward to cuddling up either on the couch or bed, one thing is for certain, you’ll need a suitable blanket to keep you warm. Plagoods is launching on Kickstarter today, the very first eco-friendly weighted blanket that aims to keep you warm and comfortable for this coming holiday season.

The Plagoods blanket will be a weighted blanket that is comprised of natural and renewable fibers to help reduce your carbon footprint. Beads fill the inside to provide the weight that is evenly distributed across your body, creating that similar sensation of deep pressure from either a hug or swaddle. 

Scientific research has found that by generating a feeling of weight or pressure while sleeping, it allows for the enhancement of serotonin and melatonin levels to be produced. Natural chemicals in the brain will trigger the feeling of relaxation and reduce anxiety, all important factors that help to improve sleep. This means you’ll fall asleep faster and sleep for longer, waking up feeling much more refreshed. 

The blanket will come in a variety of colors that include pink, blue, or light grey. It will have a smooth antibacterial surface that will be made from two layers of Polylactic Acid (PLA) fabric and two layers of PLA cotton. The fabric will be breathable, moisture-resistant, and will rely on 20% to 50% fewer fossil fuels for its production process. PLA fabric is also 100% biodegradable and compostable, which means that at the end of its shelf life, the blanket will return to the soil while releasing carbon dioxide and water, instead of sitting in a waste landfill. The fabric is also derived from 100% sugars that occur naturally, which can be found in sugar beets, cassava, corn, and sugar cane.

Features:

  • Deep touch pressure simulation
  • Sustainable Polylactic (PLA) cotton fabric
  • Non-toxic recycled glass beads
  • Breathable, moisture-resistant, close to the skin ph level
  • Antibacterial
  • Easy cleaning, machine washable
  • Thermoregulation

The Kickstarter campaign for the Plagoods weighted blanket is live and will run for the next 30 days. It has already raised $1,100 from 12 backers. The first round of blankets will be delivered by December 31st, 2019, with adult blankets starting at $129 and children’s blankets starting at $99.
