Common Myths About Organic Mattresses – Raleigh & Durham

Growing up, you probably have been told by a parent or teacher “No question is dumb.” At Green Dream Beds we agree with that statement as we get asked a number of questions about our organic mattresses from folks interested in their benefits and natural properties. But of course, we also like simply debunking misconceptions and misunderstandings about “green” and “organic” bedding and mattress products. For example:

“Organic” often means “specialty”, so organic mattresses are double the cost of regular mattresses, right? – Organic mattresses can cost more than regular mattresses, but they are certainly not double the cost or just for the wealthy. Also, think about another expression you heard growing up-“You get what you pay for.” You spend a lot of time sleeping on a mattress, so it’s worth thinking about what’s in the mattress. You’ll spend nearly a third of every day there! The organic fabrics and fibers used in organic mattresses are grown and processed differently than traditional versions, without toxic pesticides, chemical dyes, and other treatments. Organic mattresses are a better investment in regards to your health and the environment.

Are “green” mattresses really green? – The answer is “no”. Organic mattresses are not colored or dyed green, but they are “green” in the pro-ecological sense. Organic mattresses lack the chemicals often found in regular mattresses. There’s none of the chemicals, flame-retardants, and other toxic particles found in regular mattresses that can affect your health in a negative way.
