We at Eco Bedroom Solutions recognize the importance of safety and comfort in a great night's sleep, yet also understand that there are other necessary ingredients. Comfort must extend beyond physical contentment, to include a healthy and safe sleep environment. When it comes to providing a holistic approach to your health, accurate information is key! What you don't know about traditional mattress materials and construction can cause harm to your health and well being, as well as that of your loved ones. The list of toxins continually being admitted into your body from chemicals and synthetics in conventional mattresses seems to grow daily.

Did you know that as well as breathing, your pores open at night, and skin naturally absorbs what it comes in contact with? Because of the commercial mattress and bedding industry's reliance on synthetic materials, your family's health is at risk. Plastics, foams and polyesters—used heavily in most traditional mattresses, can emit toxic gasses that you inhale and absorb throughout the night. Commercially processed cotton is saturated in pesticides, contributing to your nightly dose of chemicals as well.
Over the last few decades, natural mattress materials have been replaced with petroleum-based synthetics. Nearly all mattresses in use today contain polyurethane foam, vinyl (PVC), phthalates, formaldehyde, chemical fire retardants or barriers, and an extensive list of added industrial chemicals, many of which have been untested and approved by our Federal Government.
Recent professional studies have questioned the use of these materials. The proven effects of these materials is still unknown, mostly because tracking their long term effects is virtually impossible. The problem with these hazardous and toxic chemicals making their way into our mattresses and bedding is that our bodies are continuously breathing and absorbing whatever chemicals are used in the products we sleep on. Even if we are absorbing these chemicals in low doses, the fact is we spend over 1/3 of our time as humans sleeping, this is a significant amount of time to allow our bodies such close and extended exposure to potentially harmful materials
Organic mattresses are made using the same techniques and as their non-organic rivals, but without the harmful chemicals associated with conventional mattresses. The highest quality organic materials and craftsmanship are present in all products made by Eco Bedroom Solutions. The only thing you'll be losing is the toxicity and potential adverse health risks that conventional mattresses provide.
When you purchase an organic mattress or organic bedding products made by Eco Bedroom Solutions, you'll be eliminating the hazardous chemicals from your bedroom and creating a healthier sleep environment. Purchasing an organic mattress and bedding is not only an investment in a comfortable night sleep, but its also an investment in your overall health and wellness.
