posted originally from: National Geographic's "The Green Guide" recommends mattresses made with untreated wool, either as a wrap or core, as the best choice. The second choice is organic cotton because although it's just as eco-friendly as wool, organic cotton is not inherently fire-resistant. Untreated organic cotton mattresses that do not have flame-retardant chemicals applied to them do not comply with Consumer Product Safety Commission flammability standards.
The Green Guide has this handy chart comparing various green mattress options.
Would you buy a green mattress? Do you think it's a good choice for the White House?
