Recent Customer Testimonial - "My husband and I were looking for a mattress made completely of natural, non-toxic materials that would inhibit as much motion transfer as possible. On a bit of a leap of faith, we purchased a king-sized extra-firm rubber mattress and a split slat foundation for it. We loved it immediately. A year later, we still love it. The only downside seems to be that hotel stays are no longer as comfortable as they used to be, by comparison!" MORE
Filled with polyurethane-foam-stuffed padding, a [conventional] mattress off-gas air-polluting volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Fire-retardant chemicals (PBDEs) are also applied, the entire class of which Environment Canada considers toxic. Finally, box spring frames made of plywood or particleboard often contain off-gassing formaldehyde - Adria Vasil, Author of "Ecoholic"
Benefits of an Organic Mattress
Healthy -No synthetic materials are used, so no off-gassing of chemicals. This provides cleaner air to breathe while you sleep.
Hygienic - Anti-microbial, hypo-allergenic and dust-mite resistant (better for people with asthma, allergies or sensitivities).
Safe - Wool acts as a natural fire retardant (also no off-gassing of fire retardant chemicals as common with conventional mattresses).
Durable - Not exposed to weakening chemicals, an Organic mattress will last many years, with proper care.
Environmentally Friendly - Rubber is a renewable resource (Rubber Mattresses). Organic Wool is made without hormones or pesticides. Organic Cotton uses no synthetic fertilizers or harmful pesticides.
Comfortable - A high-quality natural mattress promotes a potentially sounder sleep. In one study, it was found that people tossed and turned less when sleeping on natural wool.
Did you know? Wool regulates body temperature – keeps you warm when it is cold and cool when it is warm. Wool absorbs moisture – it is able to absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture. And there are pockets in the wool that trap heat and let the air circulate near your body. In this way, your body temperature is regulated.
