Eminent radio personality Ira Glass is on the move. The This American Life host has listed his Chelsea condo for a cool $1.75 million. 6sqft broke the news that the one bedroom has hit the market, roughly 14 months after Glass and his wife, Anaheed Alani, were sued by the condo board for “an infestation of bedbugs,” as well as other “unsanitary conditions” that led to rodents. Yikes.

Avocado Green Mattress set out to change all that when they designed an affordable mattress made from non-toxic, natural, and organic materials. Is going natural at bedtime that important? Yes!
