{Raising Healthy Families} Is Your Mattress Toxic?

Today I’m excited to introduce you to Beth from Red and Honey who is sharing her idea for Raising Healthy Families:

We spend an average of eight hours a night sleeping. That’s fifty-six hours per week, or about one third of your whole life. It’s even more for babies and children!

Logic would dictate that we would desire a healthy and toxin-free spot to rest our weary heads each night, but unfortunately that can be difficult to find.

Conventional mattresses (and even many labelled “organic” or “natural”) contain toxic flame-retardant chemicals that off-gas continuously. Since you are laying directly on it for eight hours every day, this is most definitely a problem. There are multiple links between the toxins found in our sleeping environments and many health issues that plague our society today, such as asthma, allergies, headaches, and SIDS, to name a few.

You may be wondering what can we do about it. Is it really so bad? What if I can’t afford an organic mattress? Our family recently took steps to make our sleeping environments safer.
