The Organic Crib Mattress. Nowadays most mattress manufacturers claim to have mattress options, and for the most part, they all do. However, they mostly use slightly different outer layer and filling materials. Since there are many safe and healthy options available today, understand that you are not looking for just one option when shopping for an organic mattress. Some items you ought to look for in an organic mattress include: The use of 100% organic cotton and wool - both in the filling and the outer layer of the crib. There are not any herbicides or pesticides used on organically grown cotton crops. The fire retardants that are used in organic mattresses are organic. As we mentioned before, the chemicals that are used in traditional mattresses, to protect against fire can have serious health effects. In-crib fire barriers are required per governmental regulations. Organic fire retardants such as baking soda, hydrated silica, cellulose fiber and wool, which is a natural fire retardant, are some of the products you should look for. These are all natural alternatives that may meet the fire protection requirement of crib mattresses.
Certified mattresses are very environmentally-friendly. Because of the biodegradable materials used in their construction, they decompose at a faster rate than synthetic mattresses. They are also not as damaging to recycling equipment. It is alarming to note that millions of vinyl mattresses are dumped into landfills each year, taking up much needed (shrinking) space. All natural mattresses are not 100% natural. Manufacturers are permitted to advertise their products as "organic" as long as some of the materials used to make them have been certified organic, under strict U.S. guidelines. Organic wool is one of the most beneficial materials used in a natural mattress. It is hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant. This aids in the reduction of allergens in the air. It is also naturally flame resistant and complies with the 2007 ruling, requiring that all mattresses sold in the United States be fire retardant. This fabric also helps to relieve pressure points, while you sleep, reducing the frequency in which you toss and turn. It is a natural insulator of both heat and cold, which aids in keeping your body temperature at a comfortable level. For those living in extremely humid climates, a natural mattress offers a higher level of comfort because the wool contently absorbs moisture. This reduces the chance of waking up on damp bed linens. Some organic mattresses are made with latex foam, similar to memory foam. These are the perfect choice for light sleepers who tend to wake up easily when their sleep partner moves.
