Feather, water, and organic mattresses?

When people buy a new mattress they don't think about what it could be doing to the environment. They are thinking about what a great night's sleep they are going to have. But really, every mattress is made of a variety of chemicals that have not thoroughly been tested for safety. These chemicals are very bad for the environment. Fortunately there is another option. Natural latex comes from trees that are only within 800 miles of the equater. The latex they produce though can be made into mattresses that can last up to 30 years! And another great thing about this latex? It constantly is replenished by the trees!! I think we should start using these mattresses more! They are efficient and all around great!
