Is There Such a Thing as a Vegan Crib Mattress?

First of all, let’s clear up the term ‘vegan.’ A lot of people think it’s just a short form of ‘vegetarian’ – someone whose diet consists primarily of plant-derived foods, although some also eat eggs and milk products (lacto-ovo vegetarians), but no actual animal flesh.

Vegans, however, take things a little further: not only do they not eat meat, they also don’t use animal products in any way – they don’t carry leather purses, wear leather boots or coats, no furs, no wool, and so on.

Consequently, vegans can have a tough time trying to find a crib mattress: even a lot of the ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ crib mattresses available still contain animal-derived materials like wool, horsetail hair or mohair, for example.

At Naturepedic we don’t advertise our crib mattresses as vegan, but when a vegan is searching for something that meets their standards, they come to us. If you’re a vegan, or just concerned about animal rights and conservation, check out our products.

Hello, would you be able to clarify the final paragraph? Are the mattresses animal product-free or do they include animal products? I appreciate your help
