Handy Checklist: Qualities to Look For In an Organic Mattress Store
Have you decided to make your bedroom healthier? Then it makes sense to start by switching to an organic mattress; after all, you are in contact with it for 6 to 8 hours a day. But which store should you buy from? Not all mattress stores that claim to sell ‘organic’ products are created equal. Here are some of the qualities to look for when choosing a shop:
1. Buy from a store that is vigilant about verifying its mattress manufacturers.
Here’s a fact: the green mattress industry is booming, and sadly, some manufacturers are taking advantage of the trend and simply slap the word ‘organic’ on their mattress even though they don’t really meet the required standards. Your fist line of defense against such false claims is the mattress store—they should verify the truthfulness of the claims for you, and sell only truly organic products.
The best organic mattress store in the US today uses environmental attorneys from the Organic Trade Association to check out a vendor before agreeing to sell its products. Each mattress needs to meet the stringent standards set by the USDA/National Organic Program. The store only sells the highest quality ‘certified organic’ mattresses, from the raw materials to the manufacturing process. You can rest assured that their selection of mattresses is truly safe and healthy, and that you are getting the best value for your money.
2. They should offer different types of organic mattresses for varying requirements and preferences.
Does the store offer different firmness levels and sizes, from twin to king? A good store will have exactly what you need. Their mattresses are comfortable, durable, and designed to help improve your sleep. The best organic mattresses can reduce overall stiffness, shoulder and back pain, and motion transfer (so that you don’t wake up when the person next to you moves). They also provide pressure relief.
2. Buy from a shop that offers a wide range of related organic products.
If you are serious about ensuring that your sleeping environment is non-toxic, then you want a shop that carries everything you need for a healthy bedroom. Aside from organic mattresses, the store should also offer organic pillows, mattress pads and toppers, sheets, comforters, and blankets. Some of the best organic stores even sell towels and robes. Do you have a baby? Find a shop that carries organic baby linens and beddings. You might even find suitable organic products for your pets. Larger organic mattress stores often sell Amish beds and furniture as well as wool carpet. They truly have everything you need to make your sleeping quarters as healthful as possible.
