We spend, by some accounts, nearly half our lives in bed. It feels like even more these days, as we find ourselves sleeping, streaming, snacking, reading, sipping coffee, even working in bed. All the more reason to ensure the place where you’re spending so much of the day and night—your mattress—is healthy, nontoxic, and super comfortable, too.
You can stop your search for a healthful mattress here, with Birch Living by Helix, the eco-conscious makers of all things bed-related, from bases to pillows to toppers to bedding, all made from 100 percent organic materials sourced completely from nature, and all Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and GreenGuard Gold certified.
We are particular fans of their non-toxic, “farm to bed” Birch Natural Mattress, handmade in the U.S. (and with the sleep experts at direct-to-consumer brand Helix behind it). It’s comprised of an organic cotton cover; high-quality, sustainably sourced New Zealand wool for temperature regulation and comfort; U.S.-made steel coils; and natural, Rainforest Alliance Certified Talalay latex tapped from trees (rather than the Dunlop latex used by other mattress brands) for a softer place to sleep. The mattress is hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and super breathable; optimized for pressure relief and comfort; comes with a 25 year warranty and 100-night sleep trial—and was named Business Insider’s Best Natural Mattress 2020. And right now, Birch Living is offering $200 off the mattress plus two free Eco-Rest pillows; head to Birch Living for more.
