Since we all got robbed of one hour of blessed sleep last night (can anyone tell me why we still practice Daylight Savings?), I wanted to tell you how much better my sleep has recently become. No, I'm not going to go on and on about my Now-and-Zen alarm clock again.....
My boyfriend finally got tired of waking up with back pain every morning and decided it was time for a new mattress. Keeping in mind our eco-leanings, we settled on a brand new mattress from Keetsa
, an eco-friendly
mattress company. Great rest has ensued.
And piece of mind, for that matter. Keetsa is a pretty amazing product. Our entire king size mattress came compressed and rolled in a box about four feet tall and two feet wide. Once you take the compressed mattress out of the box it settles out and the material grows to regular mattress size. As you can imagine, Keetsa is able to transport many more mattresses from their manufacturing plant when they're compressed--cutting down on the environmental footprint of shipping. They think of everything!
Our new mattress has that heavenly memory foam
thing going on that makes it very hard to rise when beckoned by my Now-and-Zen alarm clock---oh, right, I wasn't going to go on and on about that. Sorry.
Now comes the best part, instead of being made of gross non sustainable materials, the entire Keetsa mattress is recyclable! And then, to complete our new eco-sleep, we had Eco-Haul
come and take the old mattresses away in their bio-fuel-powered truck.Photo credit
