Editor's (John's) Note. I'm fully aware of the toxic material being used in the manufacturing of bedding, mattresses, pillows, and other household items. Especially given a past history of asthma and allergies I felt it time to try improving some of my environmental exposure and reducing my overall toxic load even more. Most of us don't really think about how toxic our pillows are. We probably don't ever think of our pillows unless we wake up with sore necks and other discomforts or see an ad on TV for the latest memory foam or other type of pillow craze. The truth of the matter is most pillows are toxic dumps. And we are sleeping on them for up to a third of our life. Foam pillow chemicals can include toluene diisocyanate and formaldehyde. Antimocrobial is a hot seller too. Can't let those little critters get to us but hey let's suck up a chemical bath of polyester, acetate and antimicrobial compounds such as Microbian or Allerban.
So what is a person to do? Go ORGANIC. Yes, I know, it costs more. As the saying goes...pay me now or copay later...and that is if you are lucky enough to have health insurance. But is health insurance a better option than being healthy in the first place?
So I set out to try some organic options. As you can see on this post I have found what I think to be the ultimate pillow. I have been using the Trio pillows now for about 3 months. I LOVE this pillow. I can say without question it is the most comfortable pillow I have ever slept on. And, when my wife is away, her pillow is my spooning partner.
If you are looking for a great investment in a better, non-toxic, night's sleep I highly recommend the Naturepedic Trio Pillow. I really do not think you will be anything but happy at the decision.
