The hype about organic products is beginning to make green living sound like propaganda. But make no mistake—products like organic mattresses, though a bit pricier, are good for you. The benefits of organic products are more than real, and they can truly help improve the overall health of your household.
Organic mattresses are among the most popular organic products in the market today, and for good reason. As humans, we spend a third of our lives sleeping. Young children spend even more time in bed especially in the first 3 to four years of life, during which the most important developments take place (brain and other internal organs). This is why it is very important that the environment they are sleeping in is as non-toxic as possible. That is why you want to put a baby on an organic mattress right from the start.
Natural, organic mattresses cost more upfront, but the long-term benefits are more than worth the extra bucks you have to spend. To some families, buying organic mattresses is more of a higher priority than buying organic food—sleep is an important aspect of development and rejuvenation throughout a person’s lifetime.
Here are the reasons why it makes sense to invest in an organic, non-toxic, mattresses:
- Conventional mattresses are soaked in toxins. Everyday mattresses and traditional spreads that are usually found in stores are treated with toxic, carcinogenic flame retardants. Why? Because chemical treatment is the most inexpensive way to make a mattress resistant to fire.
- Organic mattresses are innately durable. You can get at least 20-30 years of use out of a typical natural organic mattresses. It works out to be a very affordable cost per month compared to conventional mattresses that have to be replaced every few years. In addition to long term price benefits, the health benefits that organic mattresses offer are invaluable.
- According to studies, traditional (toxic) mattresses may be linked to many health conditions like SIDS, allergies, autism, fertility problems, asthma, and other health issues. Additionally, many chronic conditions are often caused by repeated exposure to chemicals. Organic mattresses help reduce such exposure, thus providing a healthier environment for your family.
Natural or organic mattresses are only worth the money if they are authentic and are made by reliable manufacturers. So make sure that you buy your mattresses only from trusted retailers and manufacturers that guarantee the quality of their products.
