    Life is too short for bad sleep, and there are countless ways to guarantee that you are well rested each and every night. Everyone has their own strategies and preferences but, at the end of the day, it all comes down to a comfortable mattress. Cue Nature’s Embrace. Our organic latex mattress selection is the best around, and you will be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable, environmentally friendly, all-natural latex mattress on the market. Each Nature’s Embrace organic latex mattress is carefully crafted by skilled craftsmen to promote unrivalled support and comfort. As a bonus, we use exclusively Dunlop latex rubber – no synthetic latex or filler material here – sourced from Kottayam India and certified through the Global Organic Latex Standard. This means that you can rest easy knowing you are getting high-quality sleep on a product that is also less harmful for the environment.

    While an organic latex mattress from Nature’s Embrace will last you years, all mattresses do have a lifespan. After you buy a latex mattress online and enjoy countless nights of uninterrupted sleep, the time will eventually come to dispose of it. What follows are the best ways to do just that.


    Recycling is undeniably the most environmentally friendly way to get rid of an old mattress, as many of the materials in an old mattress can be repurposed. From the metal coils and wooden frame on a box spring to the natural fabric in our organic latex mattresses, all of this can be handled by large recycling centers and specific mattress recycling depots to ensure your old mattress is handled in the most eco-friendly way possible.


    When you buy an organic latex mattress online from Nature’s Embrace, you are purchasing a product with a very long lifespan. Many years later – when the mattress is no longer up to your comfort standards – there are countless places that would be happy to accept it as a donation. So long as it is still in good condition and absent of any major stains, places like homeless shelters, domestic abuse shelters, churches, Habitat for Humanity, and donation organizations are thrilled to accept mattress donations.

    Junk Disposal

    Last on your list of mattress disposal options is calling a junk hauling service, and some of these companies are much more conscientious than others. You can often schedule pick-up times with ease to have the mattress removed straight from your home, and some companies will do their best to find the most sustainable way to get rid of it instead of just dumping it in a landfill. Some of these services can even handle the donation process for you – just be sure to shop around before sending your mattress to be added to piles of waste in a trash heap.

    Shop at Nature's Embrace

    Buying an all-natural latex mattress from Nature’s Embrace is the first step toward sustainable sleep. Not only do our organic latex mattresses have a longer lifespan than competitors, but the fibres themselves are also biodegradable and create less waste when the time comes to retire them. Coupled with thoughtful disposal methods, you can be a part of the sustainable sleep movement as together we work hard to do our part in protecting the environment.
