Rumor has it we spend a third of our life in bed. Unless your my toddler then he spends more time in mom and dad’s bed! When you spend so much time in one place, have you ever stopped to think our mattresses might actually be toxic? You might never guess you needed an eco friendly option to protect us when we’re sleeping. Most mattresses on the market are filled with chemicals, flame retardants, formaldehyde, and VOCs we are breathing in overnight
Luckily, there are sustainable solutions to our nightmares. Here are the top eco-friendly and non-toxic mattresses on the market for your clean and green household.
You may have seen Avocado mattresses all over social media. What you may not have known is they have an infant and toddler line as well. With organic crib mattresses, pillows, and sheets you can’t go wrong with Avocado. Their products are formaldehyde free, Climate Neutral, GreenGuard Gold, OEKO-TEX and GOTS certified as well.
The Naturepedic crib mattress is made with organic cotton and a non-GMO sugar cane derived polyethylene waterproof cover. This mattress is made without harmful chemicals, and contains no latex, soy, GMOs, vinyl/PVC, phthalates, formaldehyde, flame retardants, polyurethane foam, or PFCs.
The OMI organic crib mattresses offer multiple sizes such as your standard or oval crib, as well as offer 100% organic latex or innerspring. What sets OMI aside is not only are their mattresses organic (GOTS, GOLS and GreenGuard Gold certified) and made with non-toxic ingredients, but their manufacturing process is highly regulated. Workers can’t wear perfumes or fabric softeners to avoid contamination with the mattresses. The downside, you’re definitely paying the price for this top of the line quality and care. But can you put a price on safety and sleep security?
The Allswell Natural crib mattress is an affordable, natural, 100% organic option that will take you well into the toddler years. With a reversible water-resistant coconut fiber infant side and a plush natural latex toddler side, you will definitely get your money’s worth. The mattress cover is Organic, GOTS and OEKO-TEX Certified, and Waterproof.
5. My Green Mattress
The Emily organic crib mattress from My Green Mattress is a top choice for clean sleep. Made free from toxic chemicals, the breathable pad is made with coconut fibers and organic latex. The GOLS certified organic coconut fiber and OEKO-TEX certified latex are sustainably sourced. This means not only healthy sleep for your baby, but a happier planet as well!
Healthy sleep should be a no brainer. Unfortunately, not all mattresses are made the same and we need to take care the materials we lay our heads on. Especially when it comes to our children, toxins are not welcome! Do your part for the safety of your kids and better materials from this earth. When shopping for your little one’s sleep, choose green, clean, and organic options for safe, sweet dreams.
