About a year ago, my husband and I decided to purchase an eco-mattress. The old mattress had years of use and it was time to replace it. We understood that the mattress might cost a bit more, but knew that since a bed is where you spend 1/3 of your life, it was worth the investment. We wanted an eco-mattress because we wanted something that was better for our health and the environment. After doing some research, we found one that had good reviews that said that the mattress was comfortable. We decided to try it and ordered it online.

It was also shipped in a smaller box, which is also more environmentally-friendly (saving on transportation costs). It's hard to believe that a queen sized mattress could come in such a small box, but the company was able to figure out how to make it happen. It was so interesting that I took photos and a video of the process of opening it.

The mattress came in a box that fit the below mattress perfectly. Once we slipped the mattress out of the box, it was covered in a bag that had to be cut open. At this point, we were still not sure if it was going to inflate into a real mattress, or if the mattress would be uncomfortable (despite the good reviews) or thinner than a normal mattress. It was just hard to imagine such a small box turning into a big mattress!

Here's my husband cutting the bag open:

Here's a video of what happened after we cut open the bag:

Here's the inflated mattress on the floor. It does look like a normal mattress! It's still in its protective plastic covering.
And finally, the photo you've been waiting for. The mattress on the bed. Surprisingly, the mattress was much more comfortable than we expected. And I think it's even more comfortable than our previous mattress!

Here's a video of the same eco mattress on "The View" with Carter Oosterhouse from HGTV:

If you're in the market for a mattress and want to do an eco-makeover of your home, consider starting with your mattress. We also purchased organic sheets and environmentally friendly and hypo-allergenic pillows too. The mattress company is called Keetsa:
