Environmental pollution and climate change are among the most pressing problems of mankind in recent years. The mattress industry is not out of responsibility for the environment and the future. Because a mattress is completed and delivered to consumers, it has to go through many stages:
To produce a Foam mattress, the manufacturer must use artificial sources of materials such as polyurethane, petroleum. Many foam mattress manufacturers also use a number of chemicals including ozone-destroying CFCs and heat-trapping HFCs, catalysts and flame retardants. In particular, CFC is considered a refrigerant, aerating the mattress, making sleep more comfortable and pleasant.

In addition, litter from the mattress is also a problem. According to statistics, Americans release about 15 to 20 million mattresses into the environment each year. That means mattresses that are thrown away each year will span around 132,000 miles of landfill space.
Realizing that problem, some Foam mattress manufacturers have chosen more "green" material sources, minimizing emissions. environment and do not use harmful chemicals in the production process.
