Why Naturepedic Is A Notch Above The Rest

Debra Lynn Dadd is a well-known author who recommends safer, nontoxic products for people who want a healthier lifestyle. She literally wrote the book on toxic chemicals in consumer products! She’s been a friend of our company for years and we’re proud to be recommended by her program. Discover more about what she thinks of our company in this guest blog. I’ve been recommending nontoxic products for more than thirty years, so I have a pretty good idea of what to look for when choosing safer products. After three decades of recommending nontoxic products through books, and then in my online directory Debra’s List (www.debralist.com), In January 2016 I decided to create an official program called Debra Lynn Dadd Recommended Products. I’ve never been a fan of seals of approval because while seals say they meet a standard, they don’t ever give details. Debra Lynn Dadd Recommended Products goes way beyond a seal of approval. It’s a Letter of Recommendation[…]

Naturepedic’s Barry Cik Honored by Ohio Environmental Council

We’re sure you’ve heard the story of how Naturepedic began. Barry Cik, a board certified engineer, was shopping for his first grandchild’s crib mattress and found most of the conventional options full of ingredients and materials that he knew weren’t safe for a baby to be sleeping on! With his two sons, he founded Naturepedic to bring a safer, healthier crib mattress to parents for their babies. It’s this commitment to safer sleep that makes Barry and our company stand out. Barry’s devotion to healthier products and organic materials comes from his desire to protect and preserve the environment for future generations. We’re so proud to share that Barry Cik was honored at the Ohio Environmental Council’s Green Gala as the recipient of the Environmental Entrepreneur Award. The OEC’s mission is to secure healthy air, land, and water for people who live in Ohio, through legislation and advocacy. Their work helps communities implement green policies and environmentally-friendly practices that save[…]

A New Addition: The Naturepedic Verse Kids Mattress

We’re pleased to announce the latest addition to our organic big kid bed lineup: The Naturepedic Verse. It’s a unique kids mattress designed for support and comfort kids will love, with the organic materials parents trust! We recently launched the Verse at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas and you’ll begin to see it in stores soon. The Verse is made with premium encased coils like our adult mattresses, offering firm support ideal for growing children, with a more mature “grown up” feel. Encased coils help reduce motion transfer, so if your big kid wiggles or has restless nights, they’ll be able to find a comfortable spot and settle back down without wiggling the whole bed. This encased coil design also makes the Verse a great option for older kids and teens who are ready for a more mature feel. Like our other kids mattresses, the Verse is made with organic cotton and non-GMO PLA batting for a comfortable[…]

Naturepedic Earns SFC’s Exemplary Gold Recognition

Naturepedic uses healthier materials like certified organic cotton to safeguard human health and wellbeing. Our business practices nurture and protect the planet. We support, and promote, environmental & social causes. All of these behaviors are core to the company’s existence, part of who we are and what we do. That said it’s still gratifying to get publicly recognized for doing them. Naturepedic has earned Gold Exemplary Recognition from the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC), an organization promoting the use of healthier materials and sustainable business practices by companies in the home furnishings sectors. Naturepedic is the only Gold Exemplary mattress company among the SFC’s nearly 400 member companies. To earn the recognition, Naturepedic documented sustainability efforts in production, operations and outreach and then submitted the information to an SFC audit. After the audit, Naturepedic was given the gold, and also some kind words. “Naturepedic is a true innovator and leader in our industry,” said SFC Standards Committee Chairman Gat Caperton. “Their[…]

The entertainment industry, from music to movies to original programming delivered on cable, network and new media platforms, holds influence on how people view their world.

2015 Naturepedic Sustainability Report

At the risk of sounding cheesy, I’ll say it anyway: every day is Earth Day at Naturepedic. What I mean is that seeking continual improvements to benefit planet and people is woven into our business, not something external we dig up for a few days a year. People know Naturepedic for organic mattresses. Beyond the visible products, though, is a thriving culture of continual research and exploration. As we launch our second annual Naturepedic Sustainability Report, I thought I would complement it by sharing some of the behind-the-scenes work at Naturepedic that goes into being a leader in the green marketplace. 1. Vendors Naturepedic makes certified organic products, meaning we need suppliers that can meet our demanding criteria. Truth is, we ask a lot. On the minimum, suppliers must meet strict social and environmental criteria of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and that is a HUGE minimum requirement! GOTS examines factors from worker safety to inputs used. Remember, that’s[…]

Naturepedic Mattresses Are Now MADE SAFE Certified

We have big news: Our mattresses are the first in the country to be MADE SAFE certified! Since our inception, we’ve taken every step possible to ensure that the materials in our mattresses are as safe as possible. After all, we got our start after our founder Barry Cik set out to create a mattress he would allow his grandchild to sleep on that wasn’t made with toxic chemicals or questionable materials. Naturepedic has always been one of the few companies that make mattresses certified in their entirety to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) – the organic standard for mattresses endorsed by the USDA. MADE SAFE is an independent third-party certifier that scrutinizes the materials used in making mattresses to make sure that they are not made with known harmful carcinogens, behavioral, reproductive, and neuro toxins, hormone disruptors, heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides, flame retardants, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs and more! Questionable materials commonly used in mattresses – which[…]
