Organic Cotton

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton is the purest form of cotton, grown without toxins, synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or GMO’s (genetically modified organisms). Organic cotton farmers have developed creative ways to grow cotton without these chemicals. This is accomplished by the use of natural fertilizers, beneficial insects, and innovative weeding techniques.

In mattresses, organic cotton is a healthier alternative to foams (which are chemically treated) and latex (which is allergy-prone). All Naturepedic organic cotton mattresses feature U.S. grown and certified organic cotton filling and provide a healthier and more comfortable sleep environment.

Certified organic cotton means the following:
     NO synthetic pesticides
     NO synthetic fertilizers
     NO genetically modified organisms
     NO carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic chemicals
     NO endocrine disruptors
     NO non-biodegradable detergents, degreasers, or surfactants
     NO chlorine bleach
     NO plastisols
     NO other synthetic chemicals
