CLOTH - Rest easy on an Organic Mattress

Under that fashionable organic bedding, the core of a sound sleep is in the foundation...


As our day to day schedules become busier, the importance of a healthy sleep environment is key to a balanced life. It's an investment that pays to pay a little more for a sound mind, body, and planet.

Investing in a mattress that is toxin-free not only provides a restoring sleep, it can prolong a lifespan. Resting each night, every night of our lives on an organic mattress can prevent harmful toxins from entering our bodies that may:
-effect the nervous system
-aggravate allergies
-irritate a pre-exhisting health condition
-contain cancer-causing flame-retardant chemicals

The company GreenSleep presents the Vimala Sleep System.
Their materials and processes are all designed to honor the earth and body. All GreenSleep frames are made from sustainable hardwood. The mattresses rubber core is 100% all natural, containing no synthetic nor toxic fillers. The rubber is harvested from rubber trees by independent farmers. The battings, fillings, and fabrics are made of the organic cotton and wool.

EARTHSAKE out of California offers an interesting 100% natural latex mattress called the Serentity. The beauty of the all latex core is that it naturally adjusts to every body contour. The property of pure latex provides a natural climate control, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The core's latex is from Brazilian rubber trees, and is topped off with a quilted layer of organic cotton and wool. Special features include naturally mold and mildew resistant, and chemical-free flame retardant.

Another great company is LIFEKIND.
They offer a few styles of mattresses. One is the COMBINATION MATTRESS very similar in comfort and feel as commercially popular innerspring mattresses. Containing springs in the middle, this core is surrounded by a top and bottom layer of organic cotton padding and organic cotton canvas. The next layer is of non-toxic, 100% all natural rubber. And the "icing on the cake" is the quilted cover made of pure wool. Proudly made right here in the USA.
LIFEKIND offers mattresses for your baby crib, too. Provide a healthy start for your young ones!

Rest, rejuvenate, and revitalize all night long...and perhaps you may even be inspired to reinvent some romance as well
