5 Advantages of Sleeping on an Eco-Friendly Mattress

Jan 18th 2015 at 9:23 PM

1. Rest Assured with the Healthy Choice

Sleeping with anything that is not made from natural materials come with a price; of course, the size of that prize depends on the individual’s genetic makeup, biochemistry, their immune system as well as their Karma. Nevertheless, mattresses made from synthetic materials do have a detrimental effect on the human body, no matter how subtle. The “E-1” rating for furniture manufacturing, which is the highest rating on the planet, was created by the European Union in Brussels. It evaluates furniture according to the amount of chemicals used in the manufacturing process, the degree of dangerous off-gassing of formaldehyde and other toxic gasses, and the source of its base-materials. Each product is assigned a rating with “E-1” as the highest, with zero off-gassing and “E-5” as the lowest, with significant off-gassing. At this time, there is no comparable standard in the U. S., But Haiku Designs, an American retail furniture company based in Boulder, CO, takes this standard very seriously.

2. Lay Back and Enjoy the Natural Resources

When you wear clothing made from cotton or wool, it has the same benefits as sleeping on bed-clothes made from natural resources. The same is true of an environmentally-supportive latex mattress, because it also supports your body orthopedically, not to mention comforting. The beauty of products made from natural or organic (www.organicitsworthit.org/natural/natural-vs-organic) materials or resources is the simplicity of their composition. In other words, have you ever looked at the list of ingredients on the packaging of conventional convenience food? It’s like reading a short story with a tragic ending.

3. Rest in Peace as You Vote for Mother Nature

When you buy furniture or other domestic items from wholesale or retail outlets—whether online or locally—that only sell eco-friendly product, you’re basically boycotting environmentally toxic merchandize and casting a vote for humanity’s future as a whole. Every time you make a purchase of any kind, you’re casting a vote to support local businesses, to support natural resources, to support your overall health, and to support our common mother, Nature itself.

4. Sleep Soundly on Your Long-term Investment

If you could buy non-toxic, eco-friendly consumer-goods that were the same exact price as products that had the opposite effect on your precious health and the vital well-being of our natural environment, would you do it? Because of supply-and-demand and the inordinate expense involved with producing many things with all natural ingredients or elements, the monetary cost to consumers is often considerably more than mass-produced merchandise made from chemicals and other unnatural materials. Nevertheless, as the Green Movement and market gain momentum, this will change, so whether you wait till then to save a few bucks or take the plunge now, you’ll still enjoy the advantages of a long-term investment that will serve you, your fellow human-beings and the planet, and Haiku Designs is Green company that will help you make that transition https://www.haikudesigns.com/.  

5. Dream About Global ‘Cooling’

It’s safe to say that if we could turn the world right-side-up, the way it was before the Industrial Revolution got derailed, with less pain and expense, most people would support that out of commonsense and self-preservation. However, that doesn’t seem to be an option, so the best we can do individually and collectively is to make conscious choices to conserve energy, recycle as much as possible, purchase eco-friendly products for the bedroom and beyond, and most of all to dream of a future where the human-race is in tune with Nature, the way it was in the not-too-distant past.
