Green mattress toppers are made from a fill of either organic latex rubber or organic wool. They are generally covered with organic cotton. Latex comes from the sap of rubber trees. It is a renewable resource and as long as the trees are grown without the use of chemicals, it is an organic product. If the rubber is molded immediately it can be cleaned with natural soaps and manufactured into products such as mattress toppers without the use of any toxins.
What is an eco-friendly mattress topper made from latex rubber like? It is good for the environment, but is it a superior product? Organic rubber toppers are extremely durable, lasting for about twenty years. The rubber has natural antibacterial properties, is dust mite repellent, mold repellent, and absorbent. Rubber mattress toppers are very comfortable, with a soft but stable cushion.
Organic wool also makes a superior mattress topper fill as it is naturally flame resistant, making chemical flame retardants unnecessary. It is breathable, naturally absorbing moisture and transferring it to the air. Because of the lanolin content of wool, it is resistant to dust mites. Natural wool mattress toppers are well-suited for any climate and as they are generally covered with organic cotton they are hypoallergenic.
Organic cotton is often used as a cover for the wool or latex fill, providing a soft, breathable, and non-toxic surface for you to lay on.
