I clicked on the website, and I recommend doing so, because this is a prime example of what you get from buying a typical petroleum based foam mattress:
Yep, right there on their site, at least they don't try to disguise it. Barrels of chemicals, just sitting around in China waiting to get into your new mattress!
Nest Bedding was born for this specific reason: When birds need a bed, they don't fly overseas in search of things that would damage their health. No, sometimes the simplicity of their God given instincts is sheer brilliance: they fly around their local area and gather natural items that are non-toxic. If only we were so smart! Nest Bedding exists to give local consumers the opportunity to sleep with natural materials, non-toxic mattresses and bedding, to lessen their exposure to things that come in big red oil barrels.
Who are you sleeping with? Do you have the utmost confidence that the mattress and bedding you are sleeping with came from local trusted sources, from natural sources, from certified sources?
Something to ponder
