The Most Eco-Friendly Mattresses..
When it comes to a good night's sleep I think about comfort, health, and the planet.
My husband and I prefer a very firm mattress. We even spent five years floor sleeping. It totally cured my husband's back pain.
Knowing that we spend 8+ hours a day in bed, I want to make sure that my sleeping environment is good for my health. A lot of mattresses use flame retardants, chemical adhesives, and polyester that off gas toxins in the air. No thanks!
Then there is the fact that the average mattress lasts 10 years. That's a lot of turnover and thus waste that ends up in the landfill. While there are places that take mattresses for recycling, it's not a perfect process and still leaves a bunch of waste. I wondered if there was a better option.
That's when I found Avocado. Their mattresses are firm, completely organic, and biodegradable. It's so dreamy!
While they have a few different mattress options, we chose the Avocado Latex Mattress and love it.
