my new essentia natural memory foam mattress

By: Laurie Grassi
essentiamattress I got my new Essentia latex mattress on Tuesday, and I'm simply loving it so far! It's natural memory foam and compared to my old spring mattress, it feels like sleeping on thick gel, if you can imagine that. It basically moulds to your shape, in the most comfortable way imaginable. I'd heard that it takes some time to get used to memory foam, but that hasn't been my experience at all. It's like a cosy cocoon, in a non-cloying, non-warm way (it is summer after all!). The mattress is great because: • it's made of natural latex, which doesn't off gas • it's glue- and adhesive-free • it's entirely biodegradable • dust mites can't live in it, so it's great for anyone with allergies or who suffers from asthma • if you're allergic to latex, the processing of the latex destroys the proteins you're allergic to, so no worries! • the unbleached organic cotton cover is made with organic dyes and is removable for cleaning • it's green -- and how happy that makes me!! How much greener could this all-Canadian company be? • each mattress is hand made, with the liquid latex poured into a mould and cured, so minimal waste is produced • Essentia's website is stored on a windpowered server • Essentia is a member of 1% for the Planet, an organization that funds green initiatives worldwide • until Mar. 5, 2010, owners of hybrid and electric vehicles get a 20% discount on all Essentia sleep products. Woohoo! The mattresses are available online, but if you live near the factory/showroom, which is just outside Montreal, you can try them out in person there, and now there's also a brand-new store in Toronto, so if you live there, check it out! Available at: www.myessentia.com; West Laval, Que, 888-764-4116; Toronto, 647-348-0321; Costco (Pure and Classic 8 models) Price: from $1,299
