Why is it that pollutant-tested mattresses are so important?
We sleep seven hours per day on the average. There is just a piece of cloth between us and the mattress and that is why we are freely exposed to chemical emissions. Such emissions may cause numerous health problems and damage the environment. Formaldehyde, for example, may cause allergies or even cancer. In addition, emissions may produce unpleasant odours which may interfere with healthy sleep and, thus, have a negative impact on our well-being. Blue Angel-labelled products are particularly low in emissions. Thus, they contribute to environmental protection even while sleeping.
