Snails can sleep 3-4 years at a time

Amazing to think about, since humans have so much trouble getting a measly 7 hours, but it’s true.  Many snails can hibernate for an extended period of time as a mechanism to avoid inhospitable environments.  Whether it’s too dry (snails rely on moisture to live) or if it’s too cold snails may hiberate for 3-4 years at a time until they sense an improved, more hospitable environment.

Can mattresses be recycled?

Yes!  Don’t throw them in the trash or they will end up in landfills for years to come.  Have the mattress company you purchase from take away the old mattress.

The mattresses we remove many times will end up at recycling facilities that strip down all the parts of mattresses, separate them, and sell them for re-manufacturing.

Here is a great video with a behind-the-scenes look at a California recycling facility that re-uses EVERY part of the mattress.
