The Futon Shop San Francisco: Behind The Wheels To A Greener Path
Welcome to my blog The Futon Shop San Francisco. My name is Paul and I will be taking you though my journey at The Futon Shop. I am one of the newest employees at The Futon Shop and feel right at home here at 2150 Cesar Chavez St. San Francisco locations. Known for its “greenest futons in the world” reign especially after I saw the production team's process by which these comfy products are designed. I was sold to work here with the biggest draw that it meshed well with my lifestyle as an avid cyclist. My routine of decreasing the carbon footprint and working for a company with similar practices and beliefs to keeping a safe, healthy, and sustainable Earth left me feeling good about my part on this Planet.
The Beginning of this path to be healthy and eco-conscious began as a kid riding my bike with my friends and family, just letting go and having fun. How invigorating looking back at how it has shaped me. Memories of riding my motorcycle with my father and brother still brings a smile to my face. The fond memories I have with my brother and father traveling by bike will live with me forever. The bicycle experience yet again brought me joy and excitement and ever since, I have not stopped riding my bike at every chance possible, even to work! I discovered that what was once a horrifying activity-cardio vascular exercise had transformed into a rewarding and gratifying experience! I still loves my guilty pleasures like potato chips, but for the most part I live a healthier lifestyle because of my daily cycling practice. Reflecting on my rides, I realized that the bicycle is still the most efficient form of human transportation ever designed.
My experience cycling coincides beautifully with the concepts The Futon Shop in San Francisco works towards with their team of mattress experts to make comfortable, healthy futon mattresses. a healthier sleep. The Futon Shop products feature ecologically sound materials such as Virgin wool and organic cotton. The spring steel springs we feature in a few of our mattresses are made from recycled steel. The soy based foam use is called Bio flex hybrid foam and has much of the petroleum products removed from its construction and replaced with soy bean oil. The all natural Latex foam cores we feature on some futon mattresses are quality and dense. Instead of using petroleum as a base for beds, The Futon Shop uses soy based products and has increased their petroleum free mattress line. A third of our lives are spent sleeping, so why not sleep on something that does not harm our bodies or our homes. All these factors play into the creation of providing clients with the peace of mind knowing they have contributed to a healthy earth.
Each day, I prepare for an invigorating day by taking in the sights of one of the most beautiful cities in the world from a topography perspective. Riding a bike leaves room for reflection and reminds us all that we can make a difference in our daily lives.
