There has been a growing focus on healthy living over the past few years. Consumers have made it known, that they want to sleep on mattresses that are made using natural materials, to support their new, healthy lifestyle. What is a latex mattress, you may be wondering.
It’s simple. An Eco Terra mattress is made using natural and safe materials. Therefore, they offer safe sleeping surfaces. It’s true that we spend approximately one-third of our lives sleeping in our beds. Everyone deserves to spend this one-third of their lives sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t contain toxins. Our latex mattress is toxin free and the healthiest mattress you can sleep on. Also, our latex mattresses are made with natural and quality materials, so they last longer than other mattresses made today.
The Eco Terra mattress is a popular mattress that comes with an impressive 15-year warranty. Impressive because most mattresses are expected to only last an average of seven years, with a warranty to match.
The Eco Terra mattress also offers sleepers:
Rubber trees. The material used to make a latex foam mattress is harvested from rubber trees, which for the most part grow on sustainable plantations. Eco Terra gets their latex from rubber trees grown in Sri Lanka, as the majority of rubber tree plantations are located in the Southeast Asia area. The environment in Southeast Asia fully supports rubber tree growth, and many people agree that the more trees planted, the better. Trees are extremely beneficial to the environment, and as more and more people buy latex foam natural mattresses there will only continue to be more trees planted.
Our Eco Terra mattresses are made using environmentally-friendly mattress-making methods, which is another reason why latex mattresses are so popular nowadays. A special method is used to extract the white liquid sap from the tree, while at the same time providing no damage to the tree in any way. In order to extract the white sap, a small cut is made on the tree to remove the bark that will cause the sap to begin to flow out of the tree; it can take up to 6 hours for the sap to stop flowing. Buckets are placed under the flowing sap for transport.
The fact that rubber trees can be used for more than 25 years for this purpose is quite remarkable!
So how does the liquid sap that coming out of a rubber tree create a healthy mattress? There are two main methods used to produce a latex natural mattress - the Dunlop Method and the Talalay Method. Each method has its own way of processing and one is not necessarily better than the other one. It’s simply a matter of mattress preference.
Because the Eco Terra mattress has a supportive base of fabric-encased coils, the top layer is made of the softer, airier Talalay latex for supreme cushioned comfort.
So now you know why a mattress made with natural latex is quickly becoming the preferred mattress choice among mattress buyers. The healthy living movement is here to stay and more and more people are looking to buy a safe mattress to sleep on. This allows them to create the safe sleeping environment which they not only deserve, but need, for their overall good health.
High-quality, latex foam mattresses receive the highest overall owner satisfaction ratings.
