Being eco-friendly not only benefits our health, it also conserves our Earth. European Bedding is here to plug the gap for eco-friendly sleeping mattresses.
“People eat organic, use natural cosmetics, but many don’t know that eco-friendly steps can be taken to improve our bedroom as well.”
I started adopting a minimalist lifestyle after watching documentaries about the pressing issues in the supply chain. Seeing the amount of clothing waste, how low wage factory workers struggled to survive, I realised that this is a supply and demand issue.
As consumers, if we are less likely to buy fast fashion, it will affect the supply. From this perspective, I exercise a little more wisdom in my decisions. It might seem silly, but I love that the metal straw movement took off. Instead of buying new stuff, I’d rather invest in pieces made of materials that last.
With a Natural Organic mattress, a user can experience better health, safety and comfort. A Heveya latex mattress provides progressive support with a layer made of softer density, contouring curves, while another firmer density layer supports the spine in its natural alignment. It also has higher durability, lasting up to 20 years.
Being eco-friendly not only benefits our health, it also conserves our Earth. Not a day goes by without news of deforestation, melting ice caps and climate heating. As consumers, we have the power to make decisions collectively.
If you are an eco-conscious shopper, a truly organic latex mattress is important to creating a healthy and safe oasis in the bedroom. People eat organic, use natural cosmetics, but many don’t know that eco-friendly steps can be taken to improve our bedroom as well.
In the current global mattress market, the retailer and salesperson don’t have a good image. While they talk about coil count, there is no transparency with what is actually in there.
While we should limit the usage of electronic devices to fully come to rest, did you know that the coils in your mattress can also amplify electromagnetic radiation? Apart from that, glues and gases also evaporate throughout the night, which are bad for health when you sleep. Many people are also allergic to dust, or just sensitive to all kinds of nasties.
We spend a third of our lives sleeping. Reputable bedding shops will be able to answer your questions about the source of a product and whether it is organic, 100% natural or blended. Where comfort and support are key, we simply zip open the mattress cover to show what’s inside Organic Latex: no glues and inferior materials like cheap foams or sponges.
Without additives and chemicals, there is no chance people would react to bedding made of organic materials. Coming from a rubber tree plantation that is Organic Certified, there is no use of pesticides or fertilizers on the rubber trees.
Just remember to look out for the proper certifications. The only way to be sure that you are sleeping on a non-toxic mattress, is to choose GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard).
Thijs Veyfeyken is the General Manager of European Bedding Singapore & Okooko by European Bedding Hong Kong. The mattresses are made of 100& natural organic latex – tapped from organically grown rubber trees free of pesticides and fertilisers, and made without springs, synthetic foams or glue.
