Avoiding toxic chemicals in food, bath products, and home cleaning supplies is a good start for personal health, but toxins might be lurking where you least expect them: in your mattress. The scary reality is conventional mattresses are doused with flame-retardants containing VOCs (volatile organic compounds) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers, which are linked to thyroid problems, allergies, asthma, hormone disruption, and even cancer. We spend a third of our lives sleeping, with our faces, nostrils, and lungs just above our mattresses, so exposure to harmful chemicals that off-gas fumes while you sleep is no joke. Fortunately, for those of you looking for a new mattress, we are giving you the chance to win an organic, USA-made, non-toxic Natural Escape mattress, courtesy of My Green Mattress. Read on for a chance to win the healthiest sleep of your life.

The Natural Escape Mattress
Designed to offer contouring support and a springy bounce, the Natural Escape mattress is made with a layer of 100% all-natural Oeko-Tex Certified Dunlop latex foam, topping GOTS certified organic cotton batting, and a natural wool quilted cover surrounding the mattress. Natural Latex boasts a range of benefits- from its anti-microbial properties that repel dust mites, mold, and mildew, to it breathability in all seasons. In addition to keeping you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, latex offers optimal support and relieves pressure, stiffness, and pain. The wool quilting acts as a natural flame barrier so you can sleep soundly, knowing that your mattress has passed all of the required flame tests without dangerous flame-retardants.
The winner of this giveaway will win $729 towards any size My Green Mattress Natural Escape mattress. ($729 is the cost of a twin mattress).

About My Green Mattress
My Green Mattress was born out of a father’s concerns for his daughter’s health. Founder Tim Masters and his wife Cindy consulted the best pediatric dermatologists to help their daughter Emily with her severe eczema and allergies, but it was only after they switched out her crib mattress with an organic one that her conditions improved. This discovery inspired Tim to bring affordable organic bedding to families everywhere. His eco-friendly mattresses are handcrafted in Chicago and source all-natural, hypoallergenic materials making them a healthy choice for loved ones and the planet.
