Purchasing an organic mattress and/or bedding is a very sensible purchase. As humans we spend 1/3 of our life sleeping. The fact is, our bodies are continuously breathing and absorbing whatever chemicals are used in the products we sleep on. There is growing concern that many of these chemicals widely used in conventional mattresses may be harmful to our health. When you purchase an organic mattress or organic bedding, you’ll be eliminating the hazardous chemicals from your bedroom and creating a healthier, non-toxic sleep environment. A comfortable night sleep is important, but a comfortable, healthy and safe night sleep is essential.

DRAWBACKS OF NON-ORGANIC
Over the last few decades, natural mattress materials have been replaced with petroleum-based synthetics. Nearly all mattresses in use today contain polyurethane foam, vinyl (PVC), phthalates, formaldehyde, chemical fire retardants or barriers, and an extensive list of added industrial chemicals, many of which have been untested and approved by our Federal Government.
Natural mattress materials have been replaced with petroleum-based synthetics.
Recent professional studies have questioned the use of these materials. The proven effects of these materials is still unknown, mostly because tracking their long term effects is virtually impossible. The problem with these hazardous and toxic chemicals making their way into our mattresses and bedding is that our bodies are continuously breathing and absorbing whatever chemicals are used in the products we sleep on. Even if we are absorbing these chemicals in low doses, the fact is we spend over 1/3 of our time as humans sleeping, this is a significant amount of time to allow our bodies such close and extended exposure to potentially harmful materials.
