Chances are, if you ended up on this page, you already know some of the reasons that people give for choosing organic mattresses. But if you’re new to the idea, kudos to you for exploring. There are lots of reasons, and many are more practical than you might think. Here are just a few.
Preserving our Planet
Did you know that organic latex is a renewable resource? The rubber trees from which sap is gathered can be replanted, and they continue to produce naturally, repeatedly, for years. While there’s no overwhelming consensus on going organic, it’s hard to imagine that using fewer pesticides and chemicals could be bad for the planet. And organic latex makes an incredibly high-quality product, so when it comes to organic mattresses, what’s good for the Earth is good for you, too.
Peace of Mind
Even though the explosion of latex mattresses onto the scene has been driven by customer demand, this market segment still faces its share of resistance and negativity. Plenty of people argue that, if we can’t prove that a material or substance is unhealthy, we should just keep bringing it into our homes. For our team and our organic-mattress customers, that argument just isn’t good enough. We believe consumers should be able to find out what’s in the products they’re buying and make informed decisions about the things they buy. People who don’t want to be exposed to flame-retardant chemicals or off-gassing shouldn’t have to worry about those things. Aside from the environmental benefits, we find peace of mind to be the most valuable reason for choosing an organic mattress.
One of the raves we hear consistently about organic latex mattresses is how well they hold up over time. Unlike other bedding materials which compress or break down, latex maintains its buoyancy and structure year after year. Body impressions and clumping are a non-issue thanks to resilient, hyper-elastic latex. In fact, most of our Pure Talalay Bliss mattresses come with a 20-year warranty!
None of the Negatives
Sustainable, chemical-free production is just the beginning. Thanks to the natural properties of latex, our organic latex mattresses repel all the things that you never want to think about finding in your bed. Natural latex is non-toxic, antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, fire-retardant, and moisture resistant. Equally awesome is that it carries no appeal for dust mites, bacteria, or other invaders. Chalk up more wins in the “Peace of Mind” column.
