...most conventional crib mattresses are composed of
pvc: considered to to be one of the most toxic and environmentally unfriendly plastics in use today
phthalates: known to cause asthma, cancer, and have other reproductive effects
polyurethane foam: a very flammable filling material covered with chemical fire retardants, containing antimony, benzene, formaldehyde, and other toxic chemicals.
...all Natural Mat mattresses are
entirely organic and breathable
non-allergenic and anti dust-mite
naturally non-flammable without the use of chemicals or unnatural treatments
long lasting with superior support
handmade in Devon, England
...a primary source of toxic chemicals in the environment of a child during its first few years of life is the mattress and bedding, as infants spend 10-14 hours a day sleeping and playing in their crib
