Organic Mattresses from Green Conscience Home
Organic mattresses, or as they are also known healthy mattresses are considerably better than typical mattresses. Why? Because the materials that make a healthy mattress are organic and non-toxic. They were specifically chosen because they provide the most comfortable sleep with organic healthy materials. But sadly, materials in non-healthy mattresses contain harsh chemicals, toxic ingredients and chemicals known to cause cancer!
This video provides an overview of why you want your mattress to be made from healthy Natural Latex and not from memory foam.
It’s shocking but true:
Many of the materials used in average or inexpensive mattresses are made from materials that are known to be toxic!
Here are a few scary facts about non-organic, non-healthy mattresses:
Thankfully we offer the best mattress alternatives at Green Conscience Home for people who insist on having a healthy home!
The organic mattresses we provide are specifically designed to be healthy, non toxic and durable. They will provide you with a healthier rest for a longer period of time. That’s why we consider them the best investment in your overall family health you can make in your home.
Savvy Rest Healthy Mattresses
Savvy Rest mattresses are healthy mattresses made of all-natural latex (Dunlop or Talalay) in a quilted casing of organic cotton fabric and organic wool batting.
NO off-gassing chemicals, pesticides, or flame retardants are used.
The Serenity organic mattress is made of three 3” layers of all-natural Dunlop and/or Talalay natural latex, in personalized combinations of Soft, Medium and/or Firm (How to Choose). The sturdy organic cotton casing has organic wool batting quilted inside. The wool fill promotes a cooler, drier environment and more comfortable sleep. The Savvy Rest Organic casing closes with a strong brass zipper.
The Earthspring™ is an economical innerspring organic mattress with a difference. The recycled steel spring (by Bonnell) is topped with a 3” layer of soft Dunlop natural latex. Above and below the innerspring are .8 cm sheets of coir (coconut fiber blended with natural latex). The mattress is encased in the Savvy Rest Organic quilted casing, made of certified organic cotton fabric with certified organic wool batting. The casing does not open; the Earthspring is not customizable.
The Earthspring has a comforting surface. The top is cushioned and the innerspring provides resilient support. It can overall be described as a "Medium Firm" feel. It can be placed on a Savvy Rest foundation (9” or 5”) or a platform bed.
The Zenspring organic mattress provides the perfect balance of customization and value.
Similar to the Serenity, the Zenspring will feature a zippered casing and a layered design. However, the bottom 8" of the mattress will feature individually-encased (or "pocketed") coils. The coil units will be solid in sizes up to Full and will be split units in Queen and up. Customers will have the option of a Firm or Plush coil unit--in Queen and up, they can choose a different density coil unit on either side if they choose.
The individually-encased coils move much more independently than those in a traditional mattress featuring a Bonnell spring unit. This allows for much more contouring to the body and creates a feel that is much closer to latex than what can be achieved with a traditional spring mattress. The top layer of the mattress will be our standard 3" latex options--Dunlop or Talalay in any density and either split or solid in Queen sizes and up.
The total height of the Zenspring will be approximately 12" and it will feature a quilted flap that goes behind the zipper to protect the latex; this flap also allows the mattress to meet burn test regulations.
The Zenspring can be used with a Savvy Rest quilted foundation, however, due to the unique nature of the encased coils, platform beds and other similar bases cannot have gaps between the slats greater than 2". A bed rug is a good solution if a platform bed (like the Afton or Esmont) has slats with a gap greater than 2".
Organic Mattresses, Healthy Mattress or Latex Mattresses:
Whether you call them organic mattresses, healthy mattresses or latex mattresses, the important thing to remember about mattresses is:
Remember that organic mattresses do not out-gas the dangerous toxic chemicals that make up cheaper, unhealthy mattresses. And remember that the out-gassing from unhealthy mattresses is happening 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months or even years after you’ve purchased that mattress!
When you consider how important an organic mattress is to you and your family’s health, the choice becomes obvious.
Cost Benefit Ratio of Organic Mattresses
It’s a sad truth that harsh, toxic materials are cheaper for manufacturers than organic, healthy materials.
That’s why most mattress manufacturers use cheaper toxic materials, it’s cheaper for them and they can make more profit.
Organic health materials that make up organic mattresses do cost more, but the benefits outweigh this one time only investment in the best mattress for your health.
Benefits of organic mattresses include:
It’s an old truth, but absolutely applies with mattresses: you get what you pay for.
The investment in a healthy, organic mattress is an investment in your and your family’s better health for as long as you own your mattress.
We have many testimonials about organic mattresses and healthy home furnishings from very satisfied customers!

Research continues to reveal new insights about sleep and about materials found in many sleep-related products.
In conventional mattresses, flame retardants have been identified as the biggest health threat to individuals. Conventional cotton culture is toxic to the planet, accounting for 30% of pesticide and herbicide use and a huge negative effect on ecosystems. Conventional wool processing releases harsh chemicals and solvents. And petroleum-based foams are common in furniture and mattresses.

How toxic are chemical mattresses?
Some are made of very toxic chemicals that we don’t think should be next to a person’s body, or be breathed in, as these synthetic materials off-gas for eight hours every night. We are not scientists or experts in this area. If you want to know more, please visit the EPA website at www.epa.gov and look up the risks for some chemicals. Chemicals typically found in mattresses include formaldehyde, antimony, styrene, butadiene, various PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers), toluene di-isocyante (TDI), and other glues and adhesives.
