Looking at the state of the world today, there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that things are changing. Some of the planet’s resources are dwindling and as a society people are beginning to come together to find more sustainable ways of living. While it might sometimes seem trendy or hip to go organic with certain things, that’s a misconception among the general population. Going organic and sustainable with the items like bathroom lamp we use isn’t something we do for the show. It’s a way to make the world a better, more sustainable place for ourselves, our families, and our children into the future. Since we spend at least one-third of our lifetimes asleep, going with a green, eco-friendly mattress fan be the first step to a sustainable future Here’s how:

They Last Longer

Do you remember the last time you replaced your mattress? If you’re like many of us, you probably haven’t really thought about it since you bought it. While it’s typically recommended that a mattress be replaced every six to eight years or so, there are other times when it might be a good idea to get a new one sooner. If the mattress is adversely affecting your sleep, springs are sticking out, it shows excessive wear, you have muscle pain/soreness upon awakening, or you’ve noticed an unseasonably significant increase in allergy related issues, then it might be time to upgrade. When you do, think about getting a natural, organic mattress instead of a standard one. A high quality organic mattress isn’t made from the same materials as your standard issue one and will last much longer. Latex mattresses, especially, last for eight years or more. When you find that perfect, comfy mattress and are ready to upgrade, you’ll be glad you did after the first night’s sleep.

They’re Made From Sustainable Materials

One of the key points to remember about natural mattresses is that they’re made with sustainable materials, that is, materials that can be used in whatever capacity is required and more of the material can be produced afterward. Some examples are reclaimed wood, cotton, wool, latex, buckwheat, cork, and bamboo. Natural mattresses need to be made from GOTS certified materials. That just means they have managed to conform to the rigorous Global Organic Textiles Standard. GOTS certified materials are produced naturally and ethically, in a sustainable way. Natural mattresses also don’t contain polyurethane or any materials that contain formaldehyde, VOCs, flame retardants, or other potentially noxious chemicals — a fact that is sure to help you sleep a bit better at night.

They’re Super Comfortable

Did you know that sleeping on a bad mattress can not only make your night uncomfortable, it can also really make your back, shoulder, or other limbs hurt? Sleep stress is usually related to lousy, not-so-restful sleep. Natural mattresses are usually handmade and meticulously quality checked in order to meet certain standards. This in and of itself renders the bed a little bit more comfortable than the standard mattress. You can also get them as standard or pillow top mattresses, providing an extra layer of comfort that you may not have been expecting. A luxurious, plush mattress is all you need to get a good night’s sleep and an organic mattress can help you achieve that goal. We believe if you don’t compromise on countertops and other kitchenware, you would never compromise on a happy sleep as well.

They Come In Different Sizes

Mattresses come in various different sizes to accommodate your individual needs. This holds true for organic mattresses as well. You can get a standard size mattress which usually can accommodate two people, a twin mattress which can accommodate a single person, and the queen or king size which of course are much larger. Who wouldn’t want a luxurious, extremely comfortable bed that has a ton of leg room? When it all comes down to it, the size of your mattress is pretty important. The right size bed will largely depend on the age, wait, size, and preferences of the person who will be sleeping in it. When you know those specifications, it’s easier to choose the type of mattress you’ll need along with its associated frame, box spring, bedding, and pillows.

They’re One Of A Kind

At the end of the day, a high quality, natural mattress is just a good investment. California-based Avocado Green Mattresses is a unique, one of a kind business that sells some of the finest organic mattresses on the market. All of their mattresses are handmade in California and feature 100% organic, GOTS certified materials. They also offer a trial run and a long-term warranty period to help you acclimate to your new mattress. With that kind of dedication to quality and service, it’s no wonder they’ve become one of the top rated mattress companies in the United states. Climate Neutral certification and excellent craftsmanship notwithstanding, an Avocado mattress is truly one of a kind.
