If you're sleeping as much as you should, then you're actually spending a third of your life in bed. So let's talk about the bed. Specifically, your mattress. Traditional mattresses are often made from materials like polyurethane and solvent-based glue, which emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It's a little bit like in breathing in paint fumes while you sleep. And your memory foam mattress is no better.

Cariloha Classic Bamboo Mattress

There are so many dreamy elements to this bamboo mattress we don't know where to begin, so let's begin with cover: It's made of super-soft bamboo viscose, and beneath is a layer of bamboo-charcoal memory foam that wicks moisture and regulates airflow, keeping you cool as a cucumber all night. Altogether there are three foam layers providing support by cradling your body's pressure points.

Cariloha uses ethical manufacturing processes and has multiple organic certifications, including OEKO-TEX Standard 100, Forest Stewardship Council certification, and CertiPUR-US, ensuring there are no harmful chemicals or off-gassing in this eco-friendly mattress.

Lucid 10" Bamboo Charcoal Hybrid Mattress

If you prefer the support of a spring mattress, Lucid's mattress is a top option with its individually encased steel coils inside that also help prevent motion transfer if you have a partner who tosses and turns (or if you do!). It has a layer of bamboo charcoal-infused memory foam that controls odor and temperature followed by aloe vera foam for extra cushioning. Choose between medium (for stomach and back sleepers) or plush (for side and back sleepers) for customized comfort.

Rest assured knowing that Lucid mattresses meet CertiPUR-US standards, too.
