Why Buying Organic is Worth the Investment

Why Buying Organic is Worth the Investment

What’s the one thing that keeps you from buying totally organic? Most people would say price.

In a survey of consumers buying organic beauty products, 80 percent said the main factor affecting their purchasing decisions is price. And while most U.S. consumers are willing to spend a little extra cash on organic food products, price is still a major drawback for many families.

When it comes to your mattress, however, it makes sense to make the investment and pay a premium price to get the safest, healthiest option. 

Did you know there are very, very few legal limitations regarding what chemicals can be used in a mattress? With that in mind, we wanted to share our own list of toxic chemicals that are not supportive of good, healthy sleep — but that are nonetheless used in many conventional (and cheap) mattresses.

Next time you’re in the market for a mattress, keep in mind the following list of suspected carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, and ingredients that shouldn’t be in your mattress. 

Lucky for you, you can always trust that Happsy mattresses are certifiably organic and free from any of these harmful chemicals.
