A DIY denim-filled mattress! Everyone’s focused on creating a natural sleeping environment these days, but many can’t afford an all-natural mattress. Open Your Eyes has made a green business out of helping people who’d like to make their own mattresses. The Recycled Denim Challenge inspired them to create new covers that can be stuffed at home with recycled clothing, including your favorite retired denim jeans, to build a new mattress! A combination of natural, 100 percent cotton and buckwheat hulls sewn into sections over a soft base, this is all you need for a good night’s sleep (without all the chemicals).
