Is It Possibly to "Greenify" An Existing Mattress?

Good Question

Pin it button big

Q: I'm wondering if it would be possible to "greenify" an existing mattress. I'd love to get organic, eco-friendly mattresses for my whole family, but we can't afford it. Would it be possible to pull the fabric and foam off of an existing spring mattress and replace it with cotton or wool batting, natural latex, etc.? I'm pretty crafty, but the idea of taking apart our mattress is a bit daunting. Any thoughts or ideas, or recommendations on materials?
