You don’t have to suffer from multiple-chemical sensitivity to enjoy the benefits of organic beds. When you’re considering a new mattress for yourself, you and your spouse or your family, you can make an organic commitment because of its value, its sustainability or for allergic reasons.
Sustainable manufacturing means choosing products which don’t harm the earth and can be easily regrown or recreated. You can check how green your choice in mattresses is by asking good questions.
Examine the mattress you’re considering. Ask those questions when shopping. Latex is a natural substance derived from a variety of plants, used to coat or cover a number of products including mattresses.
Discuss the bed frame with your sales person. Does the frame originate from materials which can be regrown or recycled?
In addition to your choice of bed, the bedding you pick can match the same standard of being earth-friendly and sustainable. Consider the process used to make the pillows, pillow cases, sheets, blankets and comforters to round out your bedroom. Ask about the products that come in wool or cotton. They may be sustainable, depending on the processes used in harvesting the wool or growing the cotton. Ask your salesperson about the sustainability of the products you’re choosing for complete details.
