Green Your ZZZs: Eco-Mattresses

Buy a greener mattress You may spend a third of your life sleeping, so you might as well snooze in a bedroom that's healthy and eco-friendly. This week, we'll give you tips for a greener night's sleep. 

Tip #1: Sleep on a Green Bed

The next time you buy a new mattress, consider investing in a model made with organic cotton and wool. A natural latex core made from rubber trees is a better choice than a petroleum-based polyurethane core. Planet Green's list of green mattresses and a helpful chart from the New York Times are two resources for navigating the world of eco-mattresses.

Tip #2: Opt for Organic Sheets

Tip #3: Use Extra Blankets in Winter

Tip #4: Opt for Greener Night Lights
