10 Affordable & Eco-Friendly Mattress Brands

10 Affordable Eco-Friendly Mattresses

Did you know that we are the only mammals that willingly delay sleep? We’re so into this idea of being busy and wearing busyness as a badge of honor that we often lose out on one of the most important parts of our day: sleep.

I believe one of the biggest keys to living a slower, more sustainable life is to make sure you’re getting the adequate eye’s closed drifted off in dreamland time each and every night. I know for me, if I haven’t had 8-9 hours, I feel sluggish, grumpy, completely unmotivated, indecisive, and just overall not in the best place. But, to “be the change you want to see in the world” and to positively influence others to become their best selves, we have to be the example. And sleep is a crucial factor.

For me, if I get a good night’s sleep, I feel like I can conquer anything. Plus, I’m more present to those around me and can serve best well-rested. Sure, there are people who need much less than me (my dad sleeps 4-5 hours comfortably every night), and some who need more (my sister could sleep until lunch every day with no problem), but finding the right rhythm for you and sticking to it can make the world of difference.

One thing I do know is that to get the right amount of sleep, we need the right sleep vehicle to make it happen. And that’s where mattresses come into play. We’ve all had that experience where a spring pops out from the bed and about kills our shoulder, or a mattress is so soft it engulfs us and gives us back pain, or so hard it feels like sleeping on a plank. Great mattresses are tough to come by, and really come down to each individual’s needs. But I do believe that we don’t need to spend a small fortune to get the sleep we deserve. And, it doesn’t need to come at the expense of our beloved planet either. The average mattress is filled with chemicals and flame retardants, and to someone who is sensitive to their environment, this can cause all kinds of sleep problems.

So, I’ve done a round-up of some great mattresses that have a good price point and are good for the environment. Hopefully, this will help you finally ditch that grimy mattress you got from a friend 10 years ago and make the change to getting the best sleep of your life so you can wake up every day being the best version of you.

Tim realized it was time to offer all-natural mattresses to his customers, and rushed to put one in his daughter’s crib. Emily is now sleeping on a twin-size, all-natural mattress handcrafted by her Dad. Tim began working as an apprentice at family-owned, Quality Sleep Shop, that was established in 1968.
