Is sleeping organic worth it?

People are always asking me why did you leave your career to open an all organic mattress and bedding store? My answer… because as a mom I knew how important it was to me to have a chemical free environment for my family to live, play and sleep in.  Bliss Sleep Center was created to offer affordable, pure, luxurious, and customizable products to all of Long Island and NY.  I knew as a mom that Bliss would be a place that moms could come to purchase their crib mattress, their child’s first after crib mattress, and of course their own mattress with different levels of comfort for themselves and their significant other. My vision for Bliss was that we would be a place families would come back to as their family grew.

Your health and families health is more important than anything else right? So is sleeping organic worth it?  We believe it is and these are our top 3 reasons why…

1. The obvious 1st reason is chemicals and how these chemicals can affect your health.  Your traditional mattress can contain up to 60 different chemicals such as flame retardants, toxic glues like formadehyde, pesticides, petroleum based foams, waterproofing, cooling gels, and many other undisclosed chemicals.  These chemicals can lead to a number of health problems such as cancer, reproductive problems, impaired fetal brain development, neurodevelopmental delays in children (affecting learning, attention span and memory), unexplained rashes, and respiratory problems to name a few. Not to mention off gassing VOCs that cause reactions such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue.  My number one concern is the flame retardants that slowly break off over time and attach themselves to the dust in our homes. Then we breath in these toxic flame retardants that are directly linked to cancer.
2.You spend 1/3 of your life sleeping and sleep is the one thing that trumps everything else. Sleep can affect everything in your life… it affects your relationships, your emotional stability, how well your perform at school or work, it affects your work-outs, your weight and your decision making.  During the hours that you spend sleeping your body is restoring itself and reorganizing your brain. You owe it to yourself to make sure you are comfortable and sleeping healthy.  How about customizing a mattress to help you with your aches and pains, your allergies, your temperature comfort, etc.?
3. How important is quality and durability to you? How about a mattress that will last you 10-20 years instead of 3-7 years. Half the clients that purchase from Bliss Sleep Center buy because of the durability and comfort.  Using pure organic materials means a more durable mattress that is not dipping in the middle after a year of use.  As a mom I wanted something that would be healthy and last till my kids went off to college and when they come home to visit.
