Our Environmental Commitment Statement

We believe we are all interconnected with the natural world. That’s why Naturepedic commits to using our influence as an industry leader to support and nourish that world. As a manufacturer, we pledge to protect the environment through the:

  • Materials we source
  • Products we create
  • Business practices we use

Naturepedic is equally committed to protecting the personal sleep environment of our customers by producing products specifically designed to reduce exposure to harmful chemicals and to foster better indoor air quality.

Our “Caring for the Environment Inside and Out” Program

To uphold our environmental commitment, Naturepedic implemented our “Caring for the Environment Inside and Out” program. This initiative focuses on protecting both the sleep environment inside of our homes and the larger environment outside in our living planet. The program includes:

Organic Materials Sourcing

Naturepedic sources certified organic materials to reduce the environmental impact of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. For example, we purchase only organic cotton fabrics certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This avoids the environmental devastation caused by the chlorine bleaching and toxic dyes frequently found in conventional fabrics.

Similarly, our latex is always Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) certified or FSC® certified by Preferred by Nature, a partner of Rainforest Alliance. Naturepedic cares about protecting the earth’s delicate rain forest areas and the people living and working in these regions.

Vigilant Testing and Standards

We constantly evaluate our materials for environmental impact and health risks. We avoid toxic chemicals like flame retardants and adhesives, and we support third-party testing protocols and evaluations including GOTS, Organic Content Standard (OCS) and MADE SAFE®, as well as independent laboratory tests.

In 2021, Naturepedic became the first mattress manufacturer (and the first non-food organic business in general) to complete the Organic Trade Association’s Organic Fraud Prevention Solutions program. This rigorous program includes assembling a fraud prevention team, completing online trainings, creating a vulnerability assessment, outlining mitigation strategies and assembling a strong fraud prevention plan.

The Organic Fraud Prevention Solutions program is voluntary, and Naturepedic encourages the entire organic mattress industry to join the effort.

Purpose-driven Business Practices

We’ve also implemented a range of internal programs to ensure we:

  • Fit into a circular system
  • Reduce energy use
  • Increase renewable energy use
  • Use recycled content in supply chains
  • Support biodiversity
  • Advocate for social causes

"...very real health concerns that these chemicals raise. That’s why it’s so gratifying to me to see that Naturepedic takes these issues seriously, and has designed and brought to market a truly safe mattress, without flame retardants, phthalates, vinyl and other toxic materials and chemicals to which the simple act of sleeping on a conventional mattress would expose you. BRAVO, Naturepedic!"

Caring for the environment inside and out

Naturepedic is committed to protecting the environment through the materials sourced, products created, and business practices used.

Naturepedic takes a broad view of the word “environment.” On the micro level, Naturepedic commits to protecting the personal sleep environment of its customers by producing products specifically designed to reduce their exposure to harmful chemicals and to foster better indoor air quality. We accomplish this through selection of natural materials, avoidance of toxic chemicals like flame retardants and adhesives, and support of testing protocols including GREENGUARD and independent laboratory tests.

On a macro-level, Naturepedic is committed to protecting the larger environment extending beyond our homes. By constantly evaluating materials for environmental impact, Naturepedic commits to protecting our living planet. Through sourcing of organic materials, Naturepedic reduces the environmental impact of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. In purchasing certified organic cotton fabrics certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Naturepedic avoids the environmental devastation caused by the chlorine bleaching and toxic dyes frequently found in conventional fabrics. By only using latex from sources certified to the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) or Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), Naturepedic protects the earth’s delicate rain forest areas and the people living and working in these regions.

We believe we are all interconnected with the natural world. We commit to using our influence as an industry leader to support and nourish that world.
