Most people don’t take into account the materials that they are sleeping on and the toxins that are liable to exist in those materials. Traditional mattresses made from low quality materials and toxic fire retardants harm our environment after they are disposed of as well as effect our health negatively. Common toxins used in many commercial flame retardants are: boric acid, antimony, formaldehyde, benzene and kevlor. After doing simple research on these chemicals, one will find that they can cause severe health problems. When our bodies are exposed to these chemicals for long periods of time, our skin naturally absorbs them, which causes our immune systems to become suppressed.
The Sleep Shop is all about the healthy alternative. They offer a
wide array of eco-friendly and specialty sleep products made from natural materials such as organic cotton, eco-wool, biofoam, plant-based memory foam and bamboo. A mattress made from organic materials, free from pesticides and free from toxic coating is ideal as it will provide the natural comfort and health benefits that our bodies need for optimum sleep. Their mattresses have organic flame retardants made from natural ingredients such as wood pulp and sand. The Sleep Shop also supplies organic cotton sheets and mattress protectors that are 100% biodegradable and are the solution to a clean, healthy nights sleep. Other organic materials used in the making of these specialty mattresses include: aloe, soy, flax, lavender, and magnigel. The use of these natural materials leaves the mattresses smelling great, in addition to the unique comfort they provide. Several designs, sizes and adjustable beds are available on their website: www.organicsleepshop.com. The Sleep Shop’s integration of eco-friendly materials and supreme comfort is paving the way for modern and future sleep products.
With 25+ years of retail mattress experience, the family owned and operated company knows the ins and outs of this market. David and Karen Woods opened The Sleep Shop five and a half years ago and it has been steadily growing. After discovering the Green Movement and understanding immense benefits of living an eco-friendly life, Karen Woods was inspired to create this line of Naturally Safe Beds. The Woods family operates out of Reno, Nevada and they offer shipping throughout the United States. All of this is offered while maintaining a balance of comfort, support and a great value at that. The couple offers a blend of expertise in the market of specialty bedding and a genuine concern for the wellbeing of families. Karen believes in creating awareness for the benefits of organic bedding through education. She hopes to contribute to her local community by educating them on the facts surrounding traditional bedding and the healthy alternatives that are available.
