Forget your preconceived notions about latex mattresses – it is true that synthetic latex
used to be a dominant part of the industry, but today manufacturers are opting for natural
latex foam that is derived botanically. The two different types of latex mattresses are
Dunlop and Talalay. This means that the Dunlop or Talalay mattress you purchase and sleep
on is fully biodegradable, sourced by tapping latex from rubber trees
(much like sap would be for maple syrup) and comes from a renewable resource.
Best of all, they are free of the volatile chemicals that are unpleasant and
detrimental to a person’s health.
