Did you know up to 20 million mattresses are delivered to landfills or incinerators each year? That's an extra 100 million cubic feet of space being adopted in landfills, only to further aggravate our garbage disposal situation. Once in the landfill, it requires decades, if not centuries, for the bed mattress to breakdown. So not only are they not biodegradable, but mattresses also contain hazardous flame retardant chemicals that can leak into the local environments and contaminate groundwater and soil. These are not facts to sleep on!
