Why to choose organic mattresses while you have cheaper alternatives?
Choosing organic is not a simple luxury or delirium. Some people may think that this kind of lifestyle will eventually go off the rails, but the truth is, many individuals are slowly catching on and choosing this healthier way. The number of bedding products, particularly mattresses, is a proof to it, as there has been a surge of organic mattresses in the market the last couple of years. There are several reasons for choosing organic and each of them is very important.
1. They are healthier to sleep on. Organic mattresses do not contain chemicals that studies say will normally get absorbed on the skin and run through the bloodstreams. Overtime, these chemicals will cause health problems but with an organic mattress, none of that can happen. Don’t forget about your children, I cannot pass this as being a mother of two girls. Organic crib mattresses are naturally hypoallergenic. The baby’s lungs are very sensitive and must be away from chemicals and toxic materials. The traditional organic mattresses made of wool and cotton protect babies from allergies.
2. They are biodegradable. The parts of an organic mattress are made up of eco-friendly materials that can be disintegrated with its parts used for other things. Organic mattresses, however, can last more than the usual five to seven years of a regular mattress’ shelf life. And because they are biodegradable and recyclable, this type of mattress won’t pollute the landfills and bring more toxicity to the environment.
3. They are more practical. With many companies now coming up with their own organic line, the prices for these
organic mattresses are actually quite competitive. These products also come in a variety of specs and designs, though, so some mattresses may be priced expensively than others. But the most important thing is, consumers have plenty of choices with it.
Either way by choosing organic you are doing yourself and the world a favor. The only thing you really stand to lose are a few dollars in the short term. In the long term though you will receive the benefits back several fold in the form of better health, better sleep and a fairer more sustainable economy.
