Have you ever heard that you spend half your life in bed? Well, it is true and that is why it is important to invest in the right mattress. When my husband and I purchased a new mattress, it changed our lives. We are also pretty environment conscious people, so we knew we needed something eco-friendly. And if we could find a mattress company that is involved in charity work, even better. Here are 10 reasons you should go green with a Natures Novel Mattress from Sweet Zzz.
Natures Novel Mattress is an eco-friendly mattress that uses 100% natural latex that has been sourced from rubber trees that are not harmed in the process, making it completely renewable. I mean, you don’t see that too often and it sure makes me happy as an environmentalist. Sweet Zzz uses 100% natural Talalay latex that molds perfectly to the shape of your body, ensuring a comfortable sleep. This mattress is extremely durable so it will last a very long time. And even better, it is made right here in the United States and is Oeko-Tex certified as Class I, the highest rating possible for any mattress.
Natural Wool Cover
The Natures Novel Mattress uses a natural wool cover. Natural wool can be good for both hot and cold weather because it reacts to your temperature. There is nothing worse that a mattress that will make you too hot or too cold, so this is a great perk! Wool is also antiallergenic, flexible, and very durable. To complement the natural wool, they have also added natural cotton. This gives the cover a luxury soft feel. Because of the way the wool fiber is structured, wool needs more oxygen than is available in the air to become flammable, making it naturally flame resistant. Sign me up for that!
The Natures Novel Mattresses has an eco-friendly 50 ILD base foam that features plant-based oils and water-based glues. I have unpleasant gassing off of a mattress before and boy is it awful. I felt like my whole house had the smell for weeks! Because of these plant-based oils, there are no toxic chemicals to cause that with this mattress! The plant-based oils and water-based glues eliminate the bad odors that most traditional mattresses come with, as well as increase the overall longevity of the mattress, and offer an allergy-free sleep.
Speaking of allergy free, let me elaborate a bit. My youngest daughter has allergies to a lot of things, and very sensitive skin. The Natures Novel Mattress is ideal for people with allergies, like her, as well as those with asthma. It is naturally mold, mildew, and dust mite resistant. (Yay!) This mattress is also inherently antibacterial and anti-fungal. Talalay is made of only natural ingredients and does not gas off which I mentions early. This eliminates exposure to toxic chemicals, which should be important to everyone. Plus, they are made without prohibited phthalates, ozone depleters, PBDEs, Mercury, Lead and heavy metals, and formaldehyde.
Since it is required by law, all mattresses must have a fire barrier. The law, however, does not prevent manufacturers from using chemicals as fire retardants, so most manufacturers use chemicals to achieve this. The Natures Novel uses natural wool, which I discussed earlier, as a fire retardant. This way the mattress passes fire laws and is not a fire hazard while staying healthy. This is an important factor to consider when choosing the best natural mattress if you ask me. I know my husband and I did a lot of research on it and this was a must on our list!
Of course, when choosing a mattress, you want to get the best night’s sleep possible. You do spend half your life in bed. Of course, you should want your back to be supported while you’re sleeping. On a scale of 1 – 10 with 10 being the firmest, the Natures Novel Mattress is a 7.5. It has a firm support that will keep your back and neck aligned while being gentle on your shoulders, back, and hips. This is especially nice after a long day working in the yard or a good work out. The Talalay latex molds perfectly to the shape of your body while staying both firm and responsive, giving you a really comfortable sleep!
The Talalay Process
After the normal Dunlop process, a vacuum is created to evenly fill the mold so the Talalay latex is more consistent and very breathable. Then the latex is frozen in a -20F degree to lock the particles into a more even distribution. After, the latex is heated again to get to the perfect and consistent solid state known as Talalay. The Talalay process does not add any chemicals but simply pures the latex into a more consistent and dense state and increases the cell size by 50% for better breathability.
In-Home Assembly & Removal
How many mattress companies do you know offer in-home assembly and removal? Not many! One of the worst parts about buying a new mattress is lugging out and disposing of your old one. Let Sweet Zzz do that for you when you purchase a Natures Novel Mattress!
They Give Back
SweetZZZ Mattress believes strongly in giving back to the community. That’s why they’ve established a partnership with the LA Food Bank and other charities to make a difference. I always try to support companies that give back to the community. Whenever possible, I purchase from them, and you should too!
Try It Risk Free!
The Natures Novel Mattress is risk free and affordable. On top of that, they offer a 100-night risk free trial and a lifetime warranty. They are very confident in their mattresses, as they should be, so they offer a lifetime warranty (without prorating!). Most companies prorate their mattress warranty after the 5th or the 10th year but they offer 100% value coverage for the duration of the warranty. Plus, Natures Novel Mattresses offer free shipping and return on their mattresses. If you need to finance one, have no fear, you can get 0% APR financing on your mattress purchase.
