Now, before you start asking yourself why on earth anyone would sit down to write a short article about a cot mattress, I must tell you that I am not writing about just any old cot mattress. Rather, I writing about a cot mattress made by a company called Sleep Made To Measure. This company makes all the sleep related products from 100% pure organic latex, including pillows, play mats, cot mattresses, and etc.
If you have never slept on organic latex pillows, you don’t know what you are missing. Not only are they wonderfully comfortable and supportive, but they also 100% free of allergens, dust mites, and so on. Having experienced the difference myself, I made sure our baby got an organic latex cot mattress, organic latex pillows, and even organic latex play mats.
Now, you might think this is a bit on the crazy side, but I also got organic latex cot mattress for our two dogs. But, there is a reason for my madness. The reason our dogs now sleep on these is simply because they are so incredibly easy to keep clean. They don’t absorb odors the same way blankets and/or dog baskets do, but at the same time, they are really comfortable as well. Ever few days, one of us just dust any hairs off and then we wipe them with a cloth, using a mild detergent solution.
Now I can brag that even my dogs are doing their share to protect the environment. How do I come to such a conclusion? Because Sleep Made to Measure use organic latex that is harvest from huge rubber tree plantations, plantations which are big enough to remove roughly 143 metric tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for every queen sized mattress produced by the company.
