Hi Pat, well our current mattress is old and had no support left and leaving my poor husband with a sore back when he wakes up each morning. It's time for a new mattress so I thought to invest in a green alternative. My husband wants to be able to test it out before purchasing it (even with a 90 day trial offered on many on line sites). We tested a Serta latex mattress with an organic cotton topper that we liked. I just don't want to get dupped into a product that I think would be a healthier alternative but really isn't. Thanks for your in put.
