Thinking about the Details

by Sidney Harrison April 09, 2022

We are passionate about helping individuals discover restorative and rejuvenating sleep by celebrating the best natural materials that the Earth has to offer. Sustainability has always been a priority for Soaring Heart, which is why utilize natural ingredients, offer mattress recycling, and even revitalize well-loved and worn items when we can. While these are some of the big things we do to care for the planet, we think about the little things too.

 

Why we wait to ship orders

When we can ship multiple items in one order it helps to lower shipping and transportation emissions from the package making its way across the country to you. Although some of our products may be available in stock, many of our larger items are handcrafted to order, and have a longer lead time. In scenarios like this, we can always ship ready items ahead upon request, but shipping everything together cuts shipping and transport emissions in half. 

 

Conscious shopping means buying in bulk

When we are ordering our ingredients and supplies from all over the world, we order in as large a quantity and as we can so we may lower shipping and transportation emissions as much as possible. And for our customers we offer select pillow fillings for bulk purchase so you may refill and love your favorite pillow a little bit longer. (If this is something that interests you, reach out to a sales representative to learn more.)

 

Although we can't avoid emissions completely, we believe in making these small choices that add up over time to cut down on our impact. Let's continue to celebrate the earth by recycling, conscious shopping, and getting a great night's sleep.

Why We Don't Use Chemical Flame Retardants
Why We Don't Use Chemical Flame Retardants

by Sidney Harrison May 04, 2022

In 2007 the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a regulation for all mattresses to contain a flame retardant layer, and be subject to flame testing to ensure they can withstand open flame exposure for an extended period of time.  Although this is a good regulation when a manufacturer is willing to handle with care, not all mattresses are made with such caution; and this regulation has led to harmful chemicals making their way into our homes and bedrooms.
