Better sleep can be a function of choosing greener sheets, blankets, mattresses, box springs & bed frames, but also in cleaning up your indoor air quality.
Who would have thought that the comfy mattress you’ve been sleeping on for years contains dozens of potentially harmful substances and materials. Luckily for green-minded consumers, though, there’s never been a better time to find a truly “green” mattress.
