As a continuation of the Mattress Pros & Cons! We would appreciate it if you share your own personal Mattress experience below!
The Difference Between a Green & Organic White Lotus Home Mattress?
All Dreamton & Vegan Mattresses are available in the Green Cotton or Organic Cotton options. Green Cotton is like buying fruits from a local farm while Organic Cotton is like buying fruits from Whole Foods Market and the likes.
It iswhere cotton gets its degree, GOTS-certified organic cotton is held to the highest standards for health and sustainability. The core of most of our mattress options are hand made of endless fluffy layers of 100% pesticide-free US-grown GOTS Certified organic cotton raised sustainably, from our farms to your bed. Pesticide and insecticide-free, 100% natural and biodegradable, safe for sensitive skin, firm, yet soft, consumes 91% less water to grow than regular cotton, and protects farmers from pesticide exposure.
A more affordable option to our organic cotton, our conventionally grown Green Cotton is grown in the United States — it just isn’t certified organic. This more affordable material is slightly firmer than organic cotton, but the real beauty is in what it doesn’t have: NO dyes, NO perfumes & NO flame retardants. Grown by farmers right here in the US, Green Cotton is a fabulous cost-saving material that doesn’t put you in contact with harmful chemicals typically found in cotton.
People who have migrated to a firm mattress can usually offer a long list of reasons for doing so. But chiropractors, doctors and other medical professionals also tout the benefits of spending seven or eight hours a night resting on a firm mattress. These include:
Superior comfort. You can never have too much support, but you can always have too little support. This is especially true for older people and those with back, neck or joint problems.
Proper alignment of the spine. Proper posture matters, even during sleep. If your backbone is all out of whack for eight hours, it can be hard to function normally the next day. A firm mattress does a better job of keeping nicely aligned so you can get through the day without a lot of stress or strain.
Deeper rest. The human body can’t fully rest on a soft or sagging mattress, because it’s always trying to compensate for the unorthodox positions. And it’s not just the spine that requires excellent posture. Even your limbs, neck and other body parts need a comfy, cozy retreat for a great night’s sleep.
Proper weight distribution. Not enough support means that your body will eventually sag in one direction, which is a leading cause of misalignment in joints and muscles.
Ongoing health benefits. There’s an axiom in the sleep industry that “proper rest = proper health.” During sleep, your body does a hundred different things to repair and rejuvenate. Cells are restored. Human growth hormone gets activated. Insulin levels are reduced. Without a firm mattress to give deep rest, you’re missing out on these important health benefits every night.
We believe that we can make a difference in the green and organic bedding industry by setting an example for others. We believe that quality and fair value are more important than low prices and a quick profit. We are opposed to the exploitation of the planet and all its inhabitants. Above all, our people, products and business practices are socially, politically and environmentally responsible.
