We spend over 30% of our lives sleeping in bed, it makes sense to sleep on a non-toxic surface that is healthier, without chemicals, and natural as it can be. For any individuals that suffer from chemical sensitivities this is even more important. When researching a new sleep surface you should consider all that Harvest has eliminated.
Given the study's performed by the United States EPA. We strive to source more natural Materials to build our Mattresses. Is your mattress making you sick? It’s possible. Most foam mattress brands are made from petroleum-based polyurethane. Additionally they use substantial amounts of chemical adhesives and flame retardants, that can emit chemical odors (“off-gassing”) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) over time which contribute to unhealthy indoor air quality and have an impact on your physical and mental health. They’re also not good for our environment. The Harvest Green Mattress, uses 100% Natural Dunlap Latex from a sustainable tree-tapped source. Harvest does not use any polyurethane foams.
All memory foams are polyurethane based foams which include needed chemicals to achieve the "slow response feel". As well they typically have a strong chemical odor that present potential for long-term health risk that comes with the off-gassing. Some memory foams even include known carcinogens, such as benzene as well as naphthalene. Others may be mixed in with latex, soy, green tea, deodorizers and special fragrances to mask the smell presenting a more natural scent. We suggest examining the law tag to see the exact makeup of materials. Harvest does not use any memory foams.
We eliminated the use for chemical flame retardants. Our Non-toxic, affordable design relies on a natural fire retardant. We use untreated natural wool to meet the safety standards for flammability. This eliminates the use of chemicals that are known to be "Toxic, persist in our environment, and accumulate in our bodies". Our toxic-free Green Mattresses rely on our GOTS Certified wool as a natural approach to fire retardancy. while our Vegan Mattresses utilizes natural hydrated silica as a fire barrier. Harvest does not use chemical fire retardants.
The use of these chemicals have been linked to infertility, birth defects, lower IQ scores, behavioral problems in children. In addition liver, kidney, testicular, and breast cancers. It's very unfortunate but manufacturers are not required to disclose the usage of these chemicals on labels.
Our Harvest Green Mattresses feature old world hand craftsmanship. We button-tuft our models by hand. This tuft acts as a solid anchor point and keeps all of our natural layers together. This is the very best yet minimalist approach to ensuring a quality product. The advantage is the ability to eliminate the need for chemical adhesives which are commonly associated with off-gassing. By using the very best all natural Dunlap Latex we are able to eliminate the need for adhering or piecing together sheets to make larger sizes. Achieving this goal allows us the ability to produce a sleep solution that promotes healthier indoor air quality. Harvest does not use any chemical adhesives.
We use only 100% Natural Dunlop Latex in our products. It is produced directly from the sap of the Hevea Brasiliensis (rubber) tree. Additionally, it is biodegradable and mold, mildew and dust mite resistant making it 100% recyclable. Synthetic or blended latex can contain chemical fillers and/or polyurethane foams that may add firmness, etc. Conversely, these are typical to have an odor, and are inferior to natural latex and not last as long. As well can expose the user to same risk as polyurethane foams. Harvest does not use any synthetic or blended latex foams.
Cotton crops are known to be heavily treated with as many as 15 pesticides. Out of these fifteen, seven are listed as "likely", "possible", "probable" or "known" human carcinogens by the Environmental Protection Agency. Additionally, these pesticides are just plain bad for our environment. Our Cotton is GOTS certified organic. Harvest does not use any cottons containing pesticides.
By law all mattresses must have a Law Tag. This law tag list materials used in the Mattress build. Our simple ingredients are short but ensure our natural ingredients. Rest assured Harvest Products contain NO Polyurethane Foams, Memory Foams, Chemical Dyes, or Corn Oils.
