For years the hospitality industry has partnered with bigger mattress brands, such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons, says CNN. For their eco-friendly establishment, Eaton has teamed up with a lesser known bed-in-the-box company PlushBeds who will be handcrafting beds for the hotel.
Both companies share a commitment to social and environmental responsibility. Eaton is a LEED Gold Certified hotel, which indicates excellent sustained energy use and air quality, according to a PlushBeds’ press release. The companies share environmental and social concerns.
“Optimizing for positive impact in every aspect of the hotel experience remains one of our top priorities, and Eaton’s environmental footprint and progress will be both tracked and publicly reported,” states Eaton’s website.
The company handcrafts its organic latex from Hevea Brasiliensis rubber trees through an eco-friendly Dunlop process. Their Luxury Bliss Mattress line has a slew of certifications that demonstrate PlushBeds’ commitment to “go green”.

This is the same line that will be featured at Eaton.”

Sleep is something I like to do, A LOT. So if I'm not writing about or researching sleep-related topics you can probably find me in my bed catching some Zzz's.
When I'm awake, I love to spend time outdoors with my family. Hiking, camping, snowboarding, and riding ATVs are among the many activities we like to do.
My wish for our readers is that they can find answers to their sleep-related questions, so they too can live an active and healthy lifestyle when they’re not in bed.
