Green mattresses are a smart choice for your family and for our environment. Natural latex is extracted from the rubber tree, a renewable resource. Green mattresses are biodegradable and contain no chemicals. Our mattresses are also GreenGuard GOLD certified.
Gold certification means that our mattresses meet strict requirements for low chemical emissions and are safe for the most vulnerable populations (children and the elderly). Free shipping is offered through FedEx and applies to the 48 contiguous United States. Additional shipping rates are calculated for orders destined for Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. Terms are subject to change and do not apply where prohibited by law.
My Green Mattress offers several organic mattresses that meet GOTS and GOLS certifications, which means that at least 95% of their materials are organic. This My Green Mattress bed is a perfectly viable option for the heaviest of people. It's a little thicker than your standard box-bed mattress, and its construction will be sturdy and durable for a long time. We believe you'll get the value of your money out of this bed before it's time to start the entire mattress buying process all over again.
Mattress brands can claim to produce organic mattresses, but without testing, there's little to rely on. That's why it's so important to know how to differentiate between a real green mattress and a fake green mattress. Knowing what certifications a mattress has and what exactly those certifications mean is essential when buying mattresses. In essence, if you're looking for an eco-friendly, family-friendly type of mattress, look for mattresses that have one or more of the certifications mentioned above.
The Organic Trade Association states that mattresses must meet certain standards or regulations to achieve organic certification. If you are looking to buy a natural latex mattress, or just a green mattress that you can feel safe on, then the Eco Terra hybrid latex mattress is the mattress for you. My Green Mattress also offers a 100-night money-back sleep test, plus a 10-year warranty (which is also hard to find in the world of non-toxic mattresses, at least one without a million exceptions). While organic mattresses have their benefits, other types of mattresses can also be eco-friendly, non-toxic, and suitable for allergy sufferers.
To be a true natural organic latex mattress, a mattress should only include natural latex and other approved organic products. Some mattress companies may use certified organic cotton in their cover, but they don't have their entire product certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard is a much better standard when buying mattresses made with organic cotton. The founder of My Green Mattress, Tim Masters, founded the company after producing a mattress for his daughter, Emily, who had trouble sleeping due to eczema and environmental allergies.
