What is the worst type of mattress for the environment?

    There is a detailed answer to that question here.  In short, coil-spring mattresses are the worst because they do not last as long as other types of mattresses, so they fill our landfills more quickly/with more waste.

    Though coil-spring mattresses contribute to waste in our landfills, I don’t think that makes it the worst. What’s worse is that these mattresses are not made of plastics and foam nor do they use as many chemicals to make as modern mattresses, and we have not found a way to reuse their material in some way. I think the modern mattresses are worse because we are still moving forward with the idea even though the petroleum-based chemicals are not being substituted.
