About Paul Martell

My name is Paul Martell and I’m the founder of sleepation.com.

Between the years 2004 and 2019 I made my living as a mattress salesman for several retailers, big and small.  I went back and did the math and I estimate that I helped somewhere between 9,000 – 10,000 people choose a new mattress over the years.

I’ve sat through countless educational sessions, trained new employees, sold all of the major brands, visited several major manufacturing plants and I still learn new things all the time.

Just giving you a heads up — I can be quite direct (to put it mildly…haha!)  So, if you’ve been looking for someone who actually knows what they’re talking about, you’ve come to the right place.  If you’re looking for someone to tell you what you want to hear, you’re in the wrong place.

Though I do the occasional review, I am not a “mattress reviewer,” I consider myself a teacher and consumer advocate.  While I can be an unrelenting critic of the industry in general, especially of the influx of marketing companies masquerading as mattress manufacturers, I am passionate about helping people as I feel this is an important part of everyone’s life.

I enjoy helping people find the right mattress because I know how important sleep is. It’s the number one predictor for longevity, it makes you smarter and it can even help you lose weight.

But one day I realized that my chosen profession was becoming difficult for me. As I became more and more aware of how these mattresses were actually made and the materials they used, I realized the mattresses that I was selling at my day job were no longer lining up with my personal beliefs and ethics.

I was also becoming frustrated with the different games the mattress industry plays, the un-friendly exchange and return policies, the phony sales and gimmicks and the ‘race to the bottom’ mentality of making cheaper and cheaper beds. And since discovering that the mattresses that I had been recommending were loaded with petrochemicals and harsh chemical treatments, I began searching for a better way.

So, this website was born. This site is about presenting a better way to buy a mattress, finding healthier, eco-friendly options that are good for you and the environment that are free from harmful toxins.

I think the mattress industry has made shopping for a mattress very confusing and difficult, and I wanted to simplify it for people and make the process as painless as possible while still acquiring enough information to be able to make an educated decision about this important part of their life.

Inspired by a Beatles lyric from “A Hard Day’s Night.”

It’s been a hard day’s night
And I’ve been working like a dog
It’s been a hard day’s night
I should be sleeping like a log
