We spend an average of six to eight hours per day sleeping. This means that for 25-30% of the day we are lying in our bed.
If sleeping on a mattress that is not made of organic materials, our bodies are exposed to harmful toxins through close contact with the mattress.
If you do the math, it is quite shocking to think that we spend 2,190 to 2,920 hours per year exposing our bodies to toxins by sleeping on a non-organic mattress. Eco friendly beds are the healthier option for you and your family.
It is scary to think about the types of toxins we are being exposed to with a non-organic mattress. According to www.HealthyChild.com “Most mattresses contain petroleum based chemicals, toxic foams, synthetic fabrics, and are treated with chemical fire retardants. These chemicals can create toxic off-gassing that can expose your family to dangerous levels of chemicals while they sleep.”
The average person would not intentionally expose themselves to these harmful chemicals. The problem is that most people do not know their mattresses contain such harmful toxins so continue to expose themselves for hours each day while they sleep. Luckily there are safer alternatives when purchasing a bed.
Why Buy an Organic Mattress?
Buying an organic mattress is the only way to know that you are safe from exposure to toxic materials and gasses while you sleep. The Acacia Eastern King Bed is an environmentally friendly choice for those choosing a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. It is made of organic cotton and organic wool to ensure a safe, toxin free sleep.
Organic cotton is used in the Acacia Eastern King Bed and grown in fields free of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Non-organic cotton is the most chemically treated crop in the world. This causes pollution that harms the environment and the workers harvesting the crops. Buying a product made of organic cotton is a better choice for you, the environment, and the farmers.
Organic wool is also a natural material used in this company’s eco friendly beds. Organic wool does not have any harmful dyes or chemical treatments which is safer for you and the environment. The wool used is harvested from sheep raised traditionally on land where pesticides are forbidden and guardian dogs are still used to herd the sheep. It is a sustainable, natural fiber that is toxin free.
Purchasing Eco Friendly Beds
The Acacia Eastern King Bed is a natural choice for the environmentally conscious consumer. The wood bed frames are made from sustainably grown Alder from the United States. The beautiful wood legs of the bed are made from reclaimed wood. The wood frame is constructed with steel screws and non-toxic glue.
The mattress itself is made of layers of wool and natural laytex padding. All of the laytex used is sustainably harvested and guaranteed to be petroleum free. Since the average person loses approximately a pint of moisture while sleeping at night, wool naturally absorbs the moisture while you sleep. This helps to create a more comfortable sleeping environment. The Acacia Eastern King Bed is:
- Toxin free
- Chemical free
- Safer for the environment
- Safer for you and your family
Because we all love to coordinate the eco friendly furniture in our homes to ensure a sense of comfort and connection, the Acacia Eastern King Bed can be customized with a variety of fabrics and color choices. All of the fabrics used are either organic or made without chemical treatments to the base fabric. Any dyes used are natural vegetable dyes or low impact dyes. The dyes used create some lovely colors and natural tones to fit right into your eco-friendly home. Some of the fabric choices you have are
- Organic Cotton
- Bamboo blends
- Recycled Cotton blends
Since we spend so many hours per day sleeping on our mattresses, it is easy to see that purchasing an Acacia Eastern King Bed is the only way to rest easier at night knowing you are not being exposed to harmful toxins.
