As willing as we all are to recycle our tins and paper, our plastic and our cardboard, there are occasional stories published in the media which can annoy and in some extreme
cases, actually stop good honest eco-minded people from making a difference. You will no doubt have read about how certain everyday tasks can be bad for the environment and as
much as you might wish to get involved and help clean up our already rather blighted atmosphere, you would be forgiven for feeling a little down-hearted by it all. Well, thankfully, there are simple extras that you too can do which will make a huge difference, without you even thinking about it.
Though it might seem like an obvious pointer, the amount of disposable products that we purchase on an annual basis is, quite frankly, pretty shocking but there are ways in which you can make a difference. Simply by purchasing items which have a far increased life-span, you will be limiting the amount of unnecessary waste which is crammed into land-fill sites across the country every single day. Perhaps the best example of this is the memory foam mattress. Yes, believe it or not, buying a memory foam mattress is actually a green choice because these items have a much longer life-span than their spring based counterparts.
What’s more, memory foam mattresses are famously comfortable as well as long lasting which makes them not only the best choice for the environment, but also for your body and wallet! So, next time you are looking for a brand new mattress, consider paying that little bit extra for an item which will last far longer than the cheaper, less economical options which exist on the market today. Not only will it benefit you in terms of money, but your comfort and general health will also see significant increases too!
