If you’re looking to upgrade your bed with an eco-friendly option, but don’t want to replace the mattress, a natural latex topper might be just the ticket.
Considering that we spend about a third of our lives in bed, we really should pay close attention to the surface we’re sleeping on, not only for comfort’s sake, but also for the impact that our choices can have on the natural world.
Having a comfortable mattress can be one key to restful sleep, which is an essential part of staying healthy, and while there are a bazillion choices on the market, ranging from bare-bones mattresses to high-end adjustable models, it’s not always necessary to replace the entire mattress in order to refresh our beds. Sometimes, a mattress topper is all that’s required to bring a whole new level of comfort and support to our nightly slumber, and if you’d like a more eco-friendly option than the uber-popular ‘memory foam’ toppers, one great choice is a 100% natural latex topper.
We’ve always chosen to sleep on a futon rather than a standard mattress, for a variety of reasons (lower price, less potentially toxic materials, firmer support), and it’s been a few decades since I’ve had a conventional mattress, so I’m a bit biased when it comes to bedding. However, one weak point of futons is their tendency to get compacted over time, and what starts out as a soft surface can end up being rather firm after a few years, so when Sleep On Latex asked if I’d be willing to try out one of its Pure Green 100% natural latex mattress toppers, I jumped at the chance.
