This giveaway has closed. Congratulations to our winners, Erin and Kat!
First, a little backstory: a month or so ago, I purchased a 40 Winks sleep mask and was really excited to try it out. But then I noticed that it stank from the moment I took it out of the package to the moment I put it back in.
I did a little research online, only to find out it is 100% polyurethane (you know, that thing that Dr. Oz shared can disrupt your hormones, thyroid, and adrenal gland). So, like JHubb’s pillow, into the trash it went (or, in this case, I just returned it to the store), and the search for non toxic pillows began.
In the mean time, I plan to upgrade to an eco mask from Etsy. But this took me down a rabbit hole of researching the products I use in my bedroom as I try to have a more restful, more natural sleep experience.
Before you get too annoyed by all the raving I’m doing about Savvy Rest, all of their products meet my standards for “not having things inside them that will make me sick,” and some of these items might make it on to my Christmas list for our cat, Miss Kyle.
Let’s take a virtual walk through the Savvy Rest store and see what kind of products they can offer to the family on a mission to eco-fy:
Natural Latex Pet Beds
#1 – These are adorable. Who wouldn’t want a happy, comfy cat or dog? I bet a ferret would enjoy it, too, before eating all of it. #2 – Another eco practice: instead of tossing mis-sized pieces of latex, Savvy Rest decided to use those pieces to create natural latex pet beds.
Natural Latex Crib Mattresses
Children and babies are especially sensitive to dangerous chemicals in their food and living environments, so I’ll definitely be pricing natural latex crib mattresses when the time comes for us to be crib shopping. These mattresses leave that whole “toxic flame retardants and pesticides” thing out of your crib mattress, with firm Dunlop natural latex and organic cotton with organic wool batting.
Natural Latex Pillows
All through this month, I’ve had the chance to review two of Savvy Rest’s natural shredded latex pillows and their queen size EarthSpring mattress. I’ll save the mattress for another post, because now it’s time to gush about these pillows.
Have I tweeted about them enough yet? They arrive so generously overstuffed that I literally had difficulty carrying two of them at a time (in a good way). Heavy, comforting… unbelievable. I’ve never met a pillow like this, and you can literally customize it to the firmness you want, and create a third pillow from the “leftovers”. I don’t think I’ll ever go back. They’re fully warrantied for three years, but are expected to last much longer.
These pillows are so awesome, I’m desperate for someone else to experience their glory. So, I’m here to announce a Natural Shredded Latex Pillows Giveaway!
Enter the giveaway below by leaving a comment about how you sleep!
Do you love it? Can you never get enough? Have you ever been frustrated by all the options for pillows, so you settle for whatever you purchased last?

Winners will be chosen by random number selection on January 1, 2014. SORRY to our friends in Canada, and elsewhere, only available to continental US residents!

Savvy Rest provided me with several products free of charge in exchange for my unbiased review that will be published later this month, but has not otherwise influenced my review or opinion. This post includes a sponsored link, and be sure to stay tuned for a fun giveaway later this month!
