When it comes to an environmentally friendly home one simple thing to consider is: think small. Studies have shown that reducing the size of a house has the biggest benefit when considering your green options. Whether you are thinking of building a small house, already live in one or want to live in one, you are likely interested in living more simply “simple living” for environmental and economic reasons. Susan Susanka’s ubiquitous Not So Big Housemake compelling arguments for favoring quality over quantity and size. One topic that is typically not covered in the small house discussion is that of which bed to choose. The folks at Choose a Mattress have some really good advice:
“Since you spend one-third of your life in bed, commit some time to shopping for your new mattress. A little research about the features and benefits available can pay off a many times in the quality of your sleep for the years to come. If you are like most people, you won’t replace your mattress for 7 to 10 years. Therefore you will have to live with your decision – so make a good one! Remember, a good mattress can make a noticeable difference in your health, attitude, and well being.”
We love our Savvy Rest natural latex mattress and can see some great benefits to choosing Savvy Rest for your small house bed. They are organic, nontoxic, comfortable, and durable. Certified organic cotton and certified organic wool surround a 2, 3 or 4 layer organic natural latex core made from the sap of the rubber tree. The latex can be ordered to any firmness and can be split on beds Queen size and larger for those whose sleeping partners desire a softer or firmer mattress. Free shipping isn’t a bad benefit either. If you are looking for a mattress that is free of offgassing chemicals and allergens, you will be very happy with a Savvy Rest natural latex mattress. Latex does carry the scent of the rubber tree. For most people it’s unnoticeable or inoffensive. According to some sources latex and wool are dust mite, mold and mildew resistant.
Instead of getting into the particulars about what the mattresses are made of (certified organic cotton, wool and latex,) controlling firmness/softness, the Savvy Rest 90-day latex exchange, the characteristics of Dunlop or Talalay latex or the Savvy Rest 20-year Warranty, you can read about it on the Savvy Rest website: http://www.savvyrest.com/ – The site features some of the bedding industry’s most comprehensive consumer education with many articles on materials, design, and sleep issues.
Savvy Rest natural latex mattresses are rated “Greenest Product” in National Geographic’s Green Guide and are certified by Green America.
