The Better Living Show starts Friday, March 23, 2012 at 11 a.m. at the Portland Expo Center. The show will feature sustainable products for home, garden and lifestyle. Stop by to shop, try and buy products ranging from electric vehicles to eco-friendly mattresses. Visit the Parklane Mattresses booth for a chance to win a full size mattress set and a Portland Timber's themed give away (while supplies last).
Parklane Mattresses thinks sleep products should deeply benefit the people who buy them. Their direct-to-consumer model ensures that they can offer a high level of quality and service at a modest price. They design and create their own mattresses and use nothing short of high-quality components through and through. It’s a difference in comfort and quality that can be felt right away and for many years to come. They feel a quality mattress is a great investment—one they can make easier by keeping costs responsible and low. It’s all part of a commitment that’s guided the way Parklane has been doing business since 1921.
Parklane will feature the Breeze mattress from their eco-friendly line. This new mattress design creates a truly affordable latex mattress with premium comfort features. The plant based foam core provides the long lasting support needed while the 100% latex layers provide the comfort and pressure point relief needed night after night. Parklane will raffle off this mattress at the end of the show so be sure to stop by their booth for a chance to win.
Parklane will also feature their efforts in mattress recycling. Mattresses are 85% recyclable, yet most still end up in landfills. Mattress recycling is a relatively new addition to our Nation's recycling capabilities and Parklane was an early adopter of the process as it is truly the most environmentally friendly and health-conscious method to dispose of old mattresses. Contrary to some beliefs that donating or passing-down mattresses is a responsible decision, this isn't the case. Mattresses double in weight every 8 years due to the normal accumulation of moisture, dead skin cells, dust mites and many other allergens and biological excretions. So, although you mean well, passing a used mattress to another sleeper is truly not a sanitary or altruistic gesture. Parklane is proud to be a significant contributor of used mattresses to the local St. Vincent De Paul recycling effort and encourage all their customers to take advantage of this service.
Parklane will also share their latex pillow options at the show. Latex comes from the rubber tree, which is a renewable resource with natural properties that inhibit mold and mildew causing allergens. These pillows are hypoallergenic and antimicrobial. An easy way to start sleeping better tonight.
Parklane Mattresses makes mattress shopping easy with eight mattress retail locations in the Portland Metro area and SW Washington. All their mattresses are made at their factory in Tualatin, Oregon.
