With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's hard not to think of\u00a0everything\u00a0we have in our lives to be thankful for. While the first things we should all be thankful for are our health, happiness, family, friends, safety and freedom, there are of course many other things you'd be hard pressed to living without. One thing that comes to my mind is my nice warm bed. Once you live life with an all natural latex mattress, it's hard to imagine going to bed on anything but. Let's find out the secret behind these great mattresses and why this Thanksgiving when people go around the table to say what they're thankful for, latex mattresses will be at the top of the list.\r\n\r\nNot only do latex mattresses get rave reviews by the sleep experts, but probably the most important endorsement is that of the buyer. A good botanical mattress can change the way you sleep at night.\r\n\r\nOne Mattress for Thirty Years\r\n\r\nOne of the main advantages to latex is the longevity. A latex mattress will endure for at least 30 years due to its all natural qualities. Being composted of all botanical latex foam gives it this advantage. That means it won't be taking up space in a landfill and will be saving you an expense that many people have to make every five-ten years!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nComfort & Support Like No Other\r\n\r\nLatex mattresses offer support that other materials can only dream about. They are great for your back! The materials conform to your body's shape, giving you that extra comfort you need for a good night of sleep.\r\n\r\nHeath & Safety Benefit of Latex\r\n\r\nAnother reason to be thankful for a latex mattress this year? For your health of course! Being made up of all natural materials, your latex foam topper prevents you from breathing in any toxins or harsh chemicals that are often found in other mattress materials.\r\n\r\nMattresses sold in the U.S. must conform to fire safety standards. As a result of this, mattresses are soaked in flame-retardant chemicals. Unfortunately, some fire retardants are quite toxic. Latex mattresses however, normally use an untreated flame retardant that is comprised of natural wool. This allows the mattress to meet fire test requirements and be non-toxic, which basically covers the basics for health and safety at night!\r\n\r\nCleanliness\r\n\r\nDue to the all natural qualities, latex mattresses help prevent dust mites and bed bugs! Who wouldn't want a guarantee like that? Especially if you're living in an urban setting where these creepy crawlies are all to frequent, going to bed at night without this fear can be something to be extremely thankful for!\r\n\r\nEnvironmentally Friendly Mattress\r\n\r\nIn this world where we're all about being "green", it's pretty amazing that latex mattresses can be composted naturally at the end of their natural life. Knowing that you will help to keep the environment clean from disposing your mattress will help you sleep better at night!\r\n\r\nSo this Thanksgiving, along with all the other great things you have to be thankful for, don't forget about your latex mattress, it's where you'll be laying your head after eating all that turkey!
