If there’s one thing modern technology has given us, it’s a window into the world. Unfortunately, this window has shown us that the world is in trouble and it’s up to us to start taking the steps necessary to save it. Sleeping on an eco-friendly mattress is one way to limit your carbon footprint on the planet and improve your sleep simultaneously.
SAMINA is a strong believer in living green, which is one reason we introduced our green mattress to the sleep industry. We like to say, “we’re saving the planet one bed at a time.” At first glance, you might assume we’re referring to the amazing sleep our customers receive on a brand new SAMINA luxury mattress, but we’re being far more literal. Here’s what you should know about our certified green mattresses and how they’re helping make a difference to the planet.
What is an Eco-friendly Mattress and How Does it Work?
Eco-friendly refers to products that aren’t harmful to the environment, like our non-toxic mattresses. It can also include products that help the environment in some way. At SAMINA, we’re a proud supporter of the environment. So, when we began designing mattresses, bed frames, and sleep accessories, we took the time to think about how our products would affect the world around us. This is how we developed our bio-ceramic bedding and SAMINA Healthy Sleep System.
The SAMINA Bio-Ceramic Bedding uses a mix of 40% bio-ceramic yarn (biodegradable material) and 60% organic cotton. This comfortable natural fabric is then folded around virgin sheep’s wool for a cushiony, insulated mattress topper like no other. This is biohacking in a whole new way.
The sheep’s wool used in all SAMINA products is removed carefully and without harming any creatures tall or small. Combining the wool with the bio-ceramic fibers produces a moisture-wicking, temperature controlling material perfect for hot or cold climates. We also love the detoxification qualities of the fabric, which allows sleepers to fully relax and eliminate mental and physical stress during sleep.
SAMINA Healthy Sleep System
The SAMINA Healthy Sleep System provides a variety of eco-conscious components for the healthiest sleep you’ll ever experience. These include:
- A doctor recommended mattress made from natural rubber
- Orthopedic flexible slat frame with customizable slats
- LOKOSANA body grounding pad for bioelectrical absorption
- Climate regulating wool pad to reduce sweat and moderate temperature
- Bioactive duvets for warmth and comfort
- Orthopedic pillows for proper head and neck placement during sleep
This system uses materials that benefit the environment, harnessing the earth’s best qualities and leaving behind fabric that can be recycled, reused, or biodegrade when no longer in use.
Benefits of Eco-Friendly Fabric
Using eco-friendly materials in bedding does more than just help the environment when those fabrics are no longer usable. They also provide a non-toxic, chemical free comfort that reduces allergies, illness, and pollution. Here are some of the most common reasons our customers make the switch to SAMINA:
Safe for Those You Love
Choosing an eco-friendly mattress guarantees the bedding you choose is natural, non-toxic, and safe for your family, children and pets.
Sourcing renewable materials from the environment creates a sustainable product and provides financial support to local and international craftsman.
Better for the Environment
Landfills around the world are stressed with mattress waste taking up to 400% more space than anything else around them and they hold in dangerous waste contaminants for years and years. Get our free guide about recycling and safe disposal options for mattresses and read our article, “Mattress Pollution: A Global Environmental Nightmare” to learn more.
Natural materials are durable. There’s a reason sheep’s wool sweaters and blankets are passed down for generations. If well cared for, they can last for decades and so will an eco-friendly mattress made from similar natural materials.
Easy to Clean
Some of the natural materials we use, like the SAMINA rubber mattress, are easier to wash than traditional mattresses. They repel moisture and have natural antibacterial properties to fight off mold and mildew that can thrive inside cloth and foam mattresses.
Choosing to go with an eco-friendly mattress shouldn’t be a tough choice and at SAMINA, we like to think we make it a little easier by providing a product that sells itself. Our mattresses and sleep products aren’t just safe for the environment, they also do what they were designed to do: offer you a safe and comfortable sleep you can count on.
