What is a Sustainable Mattress?

Sustainable Mattress

Sustainability – The quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.

Sustainable mattress companies make their products with organic and natural materials in a sustainable manner. They are committed to meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Green Mattress

Whether you’re looking for laundry detergent or paper towels, manufacturers of consumer products are going green. Everyday products are becoming more environmentally friendly, and it’s now possible to find more products than ever that have less of a detrimental impact on the global environment and more of a positive impact on your own home and ability to live a more sustainable life.

One such product is your mattress. With regular mattresses, there’s off gassing (also called out gassing), which means you are breathing in synthetic fumes, which can cause headaches, allergic reactions, respiratory problems, and other illnesses. Synthetic mattresses also trap moisture, and by their very construction allow for poor air circulation and an environment where dust mites, bed bugs, mold, mildew, and microbial bacterial growth may thrive. Considering that you sleep an average of seven to eight hours a night, breathing in toxic fumes for that many hours may cause you to think about getting a green mattress to replace your regular mattress.
