It’s almost that time of year again. Where did summer go? As the kids start heading back to school, everyone is feeling both stressed and excited, so one of the most important things parents can do is to ensure they are getting a good night’s rest. One major things that can prevent healthy, restorative sleep is a bad mattress. Nowadays, conventional mattresses are chock-full of harmful toxins that prevent us from sleeping well, not to mention make us sick. Did you know that most standard, non-organic mattresses contain threatening levels of synthetic flame retardants laced with VOCs (volatile organic compounds)? These toxic off-gassing chemicals easily collect in dust, remain circulating throughout your home for years, and are correlated with a myriad of health issues, including allergies, asthma, hormone disruption, endocrine problems and in some cases, cancer. Fortunately, there are safe mattresses on the market that are supportive, made with natural materials, and comparable in price to conventional ones. And if you’re in the market for an organic mattress right now, you’re in luck. Thanks to Naturepedic , you could win a brand new, 2 in 1 Organic Ultra cotton twin mattress just in time for the new school year.
