One of the first places you can start thinking about being more eco-friendly is your bed. Purchasing a frame made from recycled or upcycled materials is a great and easy way to ensure we are limiting our waste and making use of what is already available. Alternatively, avoiding unsustainable wood sources is another way that we can help to positively impact the environment and limit the effect on our forests.
Next up is your mattress. You may be thinking, how can a mattress be eco-friendly? However, many materials used in mattresses contain chemicals that can be damaging to the air around us and are also not the most sustainable. Sticking to natural materials like cotton and wool (and avoiding synthetics) can help offset these issues, without having to sacrifice on comfort. Luckily, with the advent of easy returns, you can simply try an organic mattress and return it if it doesn’t work out for you.
