Locallectual Newsletter: Clean Sleep with Savvy Rest (September 13, 2010)

So many people make the daily choice to eat organically grown food. Many people also take their clean lifestyle to the next level by purchasing organic clothing. Why is it, then, that so many of us are still lying down each night on a toxic, chemical-laden mattress?

Conventional mattresses contain a myriad of chemicals, including some known carcinogens and others linked to immune system, skin, and respiratory problems. Think about the number of hours each night we spend in bed, breathing the fumes off-gassed from our mattresses. This hardly seems a facet of a healthy lifestyle.

Thankfully, there are companies out there striving to make sleep cleaner and healthier for all of us. A remarkable company in this field is Savvy Rest, maker of organic mattresses. Savvy Rest makes their natural, nontoxic and supremely comfortable mattresses in beautiful Central Virginia in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Materials include organic wool (which naturally resists dust mites and is also naturally flame-resistant), organic cotton fabric (better for you, better for the environment), and all-natural latex. Savvy Rest offers personalized combinations of Soft, Medium and/or Firm so that you can find just the right support for YOUR body.

The founder, yoga practitioner Michael Penny, found his path to fulfillment through Savvy Rest's mission of bringing quality organic mattresses to market. You can read more about Michael's personal journey in this interview with Inc. Magazine.

Visit a local dealer near you so that you can see, and feel, for yourself what a comfortable, toxin-free organic mattress is all about. Your body will thank you!
