Organic cotton slipcovers are finally available for those in search of a sustainable solution to breathing life back into that old sofa. Sure Fit Inc., now offers the Riverstone sofa slipcover, an addition to the company’s 2008 spring collection. A slipcover is an easy solution to fighting the 8.7 million tons of furniture and home furnishings that are annually disposed of. Opposed to conventional cotton, which is grown using more than 25 percent of pesticides globally, organic cotton offers a more sustainable solution to redecorating.

The Riverstone sofa slipcover is an Indian shadow stripe design and available in both blue and brown tones. Fitted and tailored, this product is available at Target and at www.SureFit.com for $80.
