Earth Day: How what mattress you buy, and where you buy it matters!

Happy Earth Month! 

At Mattress Nation, we care about your health and well being, which means that we also care about the health and well being of this lovely planet we call Home.

How do we take care of the planet?

When you order with us we can help make sure that the disposal of your old mattress is handled properly. We take it to the proper local facilities where they will recycle materials where possible. Up to 75% of the mattress components are recyclable. 

Why should we recycle?

Utilization of old steel, foam, wood, and other materials for crafting new products.

Diversion of mattresses from the waste stream, reducing reliance on landfills.

Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, conservation of energy, and water savings.

Disposal matters!

Do we have any natural material or eco-friendly material mattresses?

Absolutely! Natural latex, derived from the sap of rubber trees, stands out as one of the most eco-friendly materials in the mattress industry. Similar to the process of harvesting maple syrup, latex can be sustainably collected year after year without harming the tree. This renewable sourcing makes it a standout choice for environmentally conscious consumers.

Unlike synthetic alternatives, natural latex boasts inherent resistance to dust mites, mold, and bacteria without the need for added chemicals. Its resilience ensures that a latex mattress maintains its original shape and support over years of use, offering lasting comfort and durability.

Moreover, the structure of latex foam promotes excellent ventilation, contributing to a comfortable sleeping environment. With its ability to regulate temperature effectively, natural latex offers a refreshing and restorative night's sleep, appealing to those seeking both comfort and sustainability in their bedding choices.

At Mattress Nation, recycling is a standard practice across all our stores. When possible, using refillable soap and cleaning products. Every action counts, no matter how small!

Don't hesitate to visit our store; We're here to walk you through our expansive mattress collection, address all your queries, and guarantee you find a mattress that offers both restful sleep and environmental sustainability.
