At the helm of two innovative organic mattress companies, Lifekind and Organic Mattresses, Inc. (OMI), Walt Bader has been a leader in organic sleep for decades. For years Walt and his staff have been answering questions from consumers about the safety of their bedroom environments. He was one of the first to realize the importance of removing toxins from the place in which people spend over 1/3 of their lives: the bedroom. Hundreds of thousands of happy customers have slept peacefully on Lifekind and OMI organic mattresses, and Walt has always made it a point to make sure that his mattresses not only provide a comfortable night's sleep, but are the most healthful available.
In 2006, Walt decided to share his knowledge with the world by releasing his first book, Toxic Bedrooms: Your Guide to a Safe Night's Sleep. In 2010 he released its follow-up, Sleep Safe in a Toxic World, to provide even more information for the aware consumer.
Although he sometimes wishes he had been a chemistry major when dealing with the complexities of chemicals, Walt realizes that his frustrations are typical of what consumers feel as they struggle to understand the health risks posed by products made with unidentified and untested chemicals. He also knows that as people change to a less toxic lifestyle, they'll be asking questions that are sometimes hard to get a straight answer to. Walt built this website so he can personally answer questions about sleeping safe in a toxic world.
