Once Upon a Bedtime

Nearly 40 years and many restless nights ago, a group of like-minded folks wanted to educate the world about the critical relationships between sleep, good health and quality of life. This wise group knew the humble mattress was overlooked and it wasn’t getting the attention it deserved. There had to be a better way. With an unbiased voice, the Better Sleep Council was formed – bedding leaders and sleep experts who represent a cross-section of the sleep products industry, with the noble goal of helping people start every day with a good night’s rest.

More on the Better Sleep Council

Established in 1978, the Better Sleep Council (BSC) is the consumer-education arm of the International Sleep Products Association devoted to educating the public about the critical relationship between sleep, good health and quality of life, as well as the value of the mattress and sleep environment in the pursuit of a good night’s sleep. With an unbiased voice, the BSC is comprised of bedding leaders and sleep experts who represent a cross-section of the mattress industry.
