Eco-Friendly Fridays: Why an Organic Mattress is So Important for Your Health

On the third Friday of every month, I have a column called Eco-Friendly Fridays. I started this column because I run across so many amazing organic, non-food items that I believe people ought to know about.

When a person talks about living an organic lifestyle, the immediate things that come to mind are food, body care products, and home cleaning products.

Yet, the mattresses that we spend 1/3rd of our life on do not get nearly enough attention as they should.

So, I paid a visit to my friend Amy Chender, the Chief Operating Officer and Director of Social Responsibility at ABC Home in New York City, who gave me the lowdown on the importance of buying an organic mattress and the health risks that conventional mattresses pose.

Needless to say, this video was a real eye-opener for me and I am hoping that people will develop a much greater appreciation for the environment in which they sleep.

If you’re ever in New York City, stopping by ABC Home is a must.

ABC Home is an iconic destination using beauty and commerce as a tool for change, and it features carpets, furniture, accessories, beauty & bath, jewelry & apparel, beauty & wellness, food, baby items, and two phenomenal restaurants, ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina. It is a true favorite among all of us in the organic community.
