We've never bought a used mattress, but we did sell one to a friend once ... and we know other people who have purchased previously slept-on mattresses. But is it a good idea?
We're curious how people feel about used mattresses. Buying a mattress used means you're keeping it out of a landfill. And buying something used is usually better for the environment than buying something new. But what about the (many) potential downsides? We did a quick search in our local Craigslist. The word "mattress" turned up over 1,000 results. So people are definitely selling them, but are you buying it?
