We spend one third of our lives sleeping, but how many of us have taken the time to learn what’s inside our mattresses? Studies have found that conventional mattresses contain toxic levels of volatile organic compounds that could be the source of many ailments, including chronic allergies, asthma, sleep problems, endocrine problems and even cancer. And once traditional mattresses bite the dust, their synthetic materials resist degradation, resulting in an enduring toxic legacy that would give anyone insomnia. If you’re looking for a new mattress and really want to rest assured, here’s your chance to win the best sleep of your life. We’re giving away your choice of an Avocado Green Mattress made from 100 percent natural latex harvested from tree-­tapped and sustainable sources, 100 percent natural Joma® New Zealand Wool, and certified organic cotton. This completely non­toxic, luxurious mattress, made with chemical-free, biodegradable, and compostable materials, is far better for both you and the planet. ENTER HERE FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN! Win your choice of an Avocado Green Mattress , Standard or Pillow-Top, in your preferred size: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, or California King. a Rafflecopter giveaway Contest open only to residents of the continental U.S. Handmade in sunny California, the Avocado Green Mattress is all about luxury and transparency. Using 100 percent natural hydrated silica as a fire barrier, the Avocado isn’t filled with the dangerous flame retardants or petroleum­-based foams that traditional mattresses contain. Each mattress is made to order and hand-tufted without chemical adhesives, formaldehyde, heavy metals, or other toxic substances. Made with natural and organic materials, the Avocado’s eco-INSTITUT®-certified, chemical­-free design is surprisingly more durable than synthetic materials, nor does it come with that unpleasant, chemical odor most new mattresses carry. And the natural latex , natural Joma® New Zealand Wool and GOTS-­certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) organic and pesticide-free cotton make this mattress a healthy and sustainable choice. Wool and cotton also naturally regulate temperature and moisture wicking, giving the Avocado mattress superior insulating and cooling properties. Part of Avocado’s hybrid design includes a support layer filled with up to 1,303 ergonomic, individually ­pocketed support coils. This allows for cooler, more durable support than standard foam mattresses. Made from recycled steel, this support system is tuned to three strategically positioned comfort zones that provide incredible support to the hips, back and shoulders.

Is your mattress trying to kill you?

Comments Off on Is your mattress trying to kill you?

When we were kids we were scared of the monsters hiding under our bed, but as adults we should be more concerned with the monsters lurking in our mattress. The average person spends nearly a third of their lifetime sleeping – with their face, nostrils and lungs right above their mattress, inhaling all of the chemicals that are lurking inside. With all that time spent face-on-mattress, it’s incredibly disturbing to know that the standard mattress poses more threats to our health than most people ever realize. Conventional mattresses are required by law to contain dangerous levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), including flame retardants which are linked to many health issues , including allergies, asthma, hormone disruption, endocrine problems and cancer. These off-gassing chemicals collect in dust and remain circulating throughout your home for years. Fortunately, there are plenty of natural materials that make great mattresses, including wool, organic cotton and natural latex, and if you look carefully and read labels, you can easily find a safe and healthy mattress. Read on for tips to avoid toxic mattresses that are harmful to your health, and discover all the best natural alternatives. Read the rest of Is your mattress trying to kill you?

Secret donors gave $125 million to fuel American climate change denial

Comments Off on Secret donors gave $125 million to fuel American climate change denial

It looks like the American anti-climate change movement is, if nothing else, a well-funded one. The Guardian reports an analysis of tax records shows “secretive funders” behind the country’s conservative movement gave about $125 million worth of funding over three years to groups dedicated to spreading false information about climate change, and ruining Obama’s plan to tackle the problem. According to the Guardian, that figure is about half the total anonymous funding handed out to right wing groups and proves the importance of climate-related issues to American conservatives.
