What kind of mattress is the worst for the environment?

    Many mattresses are made with petroleum based ingredients, ie. polyurethane foam. This can be found in memory foam and egg crate covers. Another problem has been seen in flame retardants used that are required for Fire Safety standards, yet have also been shown to have adverse effects on human health. Impact from normal sleep movements on mattresses causes the particles to break down in get into the air we breathe.You can buy a barrier cloth to keep in some of the toxins that are broken down but the best would be to purchase a chemical free mattress made from wool and rubber trees. Not only are they environmentally friendly, but they also are naturally flame retardant, but they are expensive. The Organic Mattress Store (www.theorganicmattressstore.com), Natural Bed Store (www.NaturalBedStore.com), and Simply Organic Sleep (www.SimplyOrganicSleep.com) are three places where you can look at toxin free mattresses and sleep products.

    The mattresses from brands like Sealy, Simmons, Serta, Tempurpedic are made from the Urethane industry.  Savvy Rest is manufactured from the Organic industry a big difference.  Savvy Rest is the only organic mattress manufacturer who makes only organic mattresses and have the largest dealer network nationwide.  Purity, Integrity and Comfort.  You can learn more and get really good service from their dealer in Arkansas at http://www.MountainAirOrganicBeds.com
