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[…]

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.
