Nest Bedding Latex Mattresses And Our Environment

We here at Nest Bedding love the world and want to see it prosper. That's why we offer natural and organic products that will not only last generations, but have a lower impact on our planet's resources. However, it's discouraging to realize that many of today's mattresses are dependent on processed petroleum. Companies that rely on these materials are contributing to an increased carbon footprint and these non-biodegradable products end up in landfills. View full article →

These 4 Things Can Ruin Your New Mattress

Buying a new mattress can make a world of difference in your quality of sleep, and when you spend a lot of money on a new bed, you expect to get great sleep. But what happens when you get the new mattress home only to find it doesn't do all its promised to do? We hear it all the time: The mattress we got just isn't cutting it. We are waking up with pain or its making us sleep hot. But wait, shouldn't all that money you spent mean you are sleeping better, and not worse? View full article →

Increase Your Quality of Life with Technology and Get Some Sleep

Experts disagree. As a matter of fact, lack of sleep is considered a public epidemic. Lack of sleep can be the cause of you not being able to do your job to the best of your ability, falling asleep while you drive and during the day, and the root of clouded, unclear thinking. People who have sleep problems are more apt to have cancer, diabetes, and be depressed. View full article →

Buying A Mattress – Who Should You Trust?

How mattresses became one of the most feared and troublesome purchases we can make in our adult life is purely a mystery. Most other products we simply go to a store, choose the products we want or need, stand in line, pay the cashier, go home, problem solved. Somewhere along the line in “Mattress History”, the simple purchase of a bed became a stressful, scary and overwhelming process. View full article →

Nest Bedding - The Natural Mattress Store

Nest Bedding wants to be your Natural Mattress Store. Sure, there are other stores selling mattresses and selling organic or natural mattresses. Why should you consider Nest Bedding to be your Natural Mattress Store? I think the best reason I have heard lately was during an interview with a young man who had quit one of the other Natural Mattress Stores he and his wife worked at. He told me he simply ran out of compelling reasons to give people when they asked why they should buy the natural mattresses he was selling. 

Nest Bedding has worked hard to bring to consumers not only high quality and affordable options for their next natural mattress and bedding purchase, but we also believe that when you claim to be natural and organic, you should have valid third party testing for every major component of that product. For example, our organic natural mattresses, which you can see in our Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkeley or Mountain View locations, carry organic certification for the latex, wool and cotton. Most Natural Mattress Stores will carry organic certification on the wool and cotton, but not the latex. Beware!

Our Organic Cotton Sheet Sets, which are manufactured right here in the USA, are made with USDA certified organic cotton to ensure their purity. In fact, we strive to find products with valid, third party testing to back their claims, such as Oregon Tilth Certification, USDA Certifications, Oeko Tex Certification and Certi-PUR on our foams.

Most of our competitors in the San Francisco Bay Area and in the Los Angeles carry some great products, but like the salesman said about compelling reasons, Nest Bedding's organic mattresses not only are made with certified components, but they are comfortable, supportive and some of the most affordable in the market. How do we do this?

First, our overhead is not huge. We don't have oversized showrooms in expensive parts of town. All of our mattresses, both our organic latex mattresses and our natural memory foam mattresses come compress-packed to keep expenses down. And we don't ship anything from China.

Next, we never run sales. Why is this a good thing? You can buy with confidence any time of the year and know you are getting the best deal you will get. Most mattress companies have inflated prices and then bring the prices down during a sale. The sale price is where the bed likely should be priced to begin with. We prefer to honor and respect our customers with quality mattresses and bedding at affordable prices, all the time.

A natural mattress can be just what the doctor ordered, as they typically perfect for those with allergies and chemical sensitivities, or for people looking to limit their chemical exposure.

Mattress Shopping 101

Believe it or not, there is a right way and a wrong way to shop for a mattress. Over my long and illustrious career helping literally thousand and thousand of good folks choose the right organic or non-toxic mattress for their sleep needs, I have seen many Mattress Shopping mistakes. Here are a few:

  1. Dress Appropriately! Believe it or not, there is an appropriate and an inappropriate way to dress when out shopping for a mattress. Short skirts, revealing clothing, tight pants or shirts, dirty clothing or shoes...all not the best attire when shopping for a mattress. You want to wear loose or cozy fitting clothing, cotton or lightweight so you can feel the breathability of the mattress and comfort of the surface. Sandal or slip on shoes for ease of slipping out of your shoes and no hats.
  2. Leave The Food At The Door. Walking around a mattress store with food and/or a beverage could potentially leave merchandise with damage and incur liability. Focus on picking out the best organic mattress or memory foam mattress for your needs, you can eat later. And if you buy from Nest Bedding, you will have more money left than if you bought an overpriced name brand mattress.
  3. Bring Change. Prepare to stay awhile and be non-rushed. Being in a hurry will not give you a chance to slow down and relax. Give your body a chance to unwind as you are laying on that fancy new latex mattress from Nest Bedding, or the top selling Bed in a Box memory foam mattress. Running back and forth to the meter and worrying about a ticket is not going to help you relax.
  4. Take A Step Back. When shopping for a mattress in Los Angeles, Berkeley or San Francisco, there are a ton of mattress stores and many mattress choices. In our Nest Bedding Organic Mattress Los Angeles location, there are literally 4 mattress stores within a 50 yard radius. In Berkeley there are organic mattress stores aplenty. And the Organic Mattress San Francisco scene is full of lots of organic mattress choices. Do your research, visit stores, gather information, and then narrow your search to a couple of choice.
  5. The Final Decision. Ultimately, you want something in your price range, comfortable, durable. Be careful not to fall for the "20 Year Warranty" Trap. That is where you ask how long the mattress will last and the salesperson responds, "It has a 20 year warranty." That is not how long the mattress lasts, that is how long the warranty last. Websites like SleepLikeTheDead.com and other research sites can give you valuable insight into other consumer experiences, along with Yelp. Comfort Guarantees, Third Party Certifications and Country Of Origin are all things you want to consider as well.

Nest Bedding, with stores in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkeley and Mountain View is one of the leading organic mattress and natural memory foam mattress stores, specializing in products such as the top rated memory foam mattresses by Bed In A Box.com and some of the best priced organic mattresses in the market.

Does Your Natural Mattress Use Organic Latex? Ours Do!

Recently recognized by Mercedes Benz Online Magazine as Best Mattresses for Kids, and voted Best Beds and Mattresses in the SF Bay Area 2 years running, Nest Bedding is your best source for affordable organic and natural mattresses.

While other stores will boast they use organic cotton and organic wool to make their natural mattresses, Nest Bedding strives to create affordable natural mattresses using ALL organic certified materials. Why wrap a "natural" latex with organic fabrics when you can use Certified Organic Latex? Nest Bedding Organic Mattresses offer the peace of mind of using completely certified organic cotton, certified organic wool and certified organic latex to create one of the most comfortable, durable and affordable organic mattresses made in the USA.

While many of our competitors like to boast they use natural materials, we rely on respected and reliable 3rd party organic certifications to make our claims. And we don't ship our mattresses from China, where they use fillers such as charcoal in their foam mattresses. That is right, charcoal. Why? To absorb the chemical smell.

Nest Bedding Organic Mattresses stand out as a real bargain when you are shopping for a natural mattress in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Berkeley and Mountain View. Come in this weekend and discover the Nest Bedding difference and find out why we have such high ratings on Yelp.

The Best Organic And Non-Toxic Pillows?

There are lots of mattress stores in the Berkeley, San Francisco and Mountain View area, organic mattresses and memory foam mattresses, but there are not a lot of stores that focus and specialize in pillows, both non-toxic and organic pillows. Nest Bedding is one of the few stores in California that really focus on helping you choose the right pillow for your situation, body type and mattress type, with many choices. 

Pillows can make or break a great night's sleep as a pillow can support your head and neck or lead to upper back and neck stiffness. And when you purchase a new mattress, you should not neglect purchasing a supportive pillow as your new supportive mattress will position your body in new ways.

What kind of pillows will you find at the Nest Bedding stores in Berkeley, San Francisco, Mountain View and now in Los Angeles?

  1. The Easy Breather Pillow - The Easy Breather is not an organic pillow, although it is non-toxic and covered in organic cotton. The Easy Breather is our best selling pillow and due to its patented technology exclusively available at Nest Bedding. The patented fill material locks together to provide consistent support throughout the night regardless of what position you move into. Most pillows shift when you move in your sleep, leaving you out of alignment which leads to discomfort and pain.
  2. The Nature's Perfect Pillow - The Nature's Perfect Pillow is filled with shredded latex and kapok and is a pillow you will exclusively find at Nest Bedding stores. This organic pillow is made up of shredded natural latex, natural kapok and covered in organic cotton. These pillows provide a soft, supportive pillow that is a great replacement for down and feather pillows.
  3. BuckWool Pillows - Made for our Nest Bedding stores, the BuckWool pillow combines the breathability of Buckwheat Hulls and the loft and supportive of wool to make for a great all-natural pillow. 
  4. Machine Washable AND dryable Oeko Tex Certified Memory Foam Pillows - These new pillows are on the way and we should have them at all the Nest Bedding stores. They are a great pillow for support and for allergy sufferers as you are able to throw the pillow in the washing machine and the dryer to keep the core clean. Available in 3 styles.
  5. Bed In A Box Contour and Side Sleeper Pillow - These Gel Foam pillows from our friends at Bed In A Box are made with Gel foam and are cool to sleep on and soft and supportive. Unlike most memory foam pillows, these sleep cool and do not hurt your face. The foam is the perfect combination of supportive and soft.
  6. Kapok Pillows - We have a nice assortment of kapok pillows to fit everyone from kids to side sleepers.
  7. Gemma BioSoy Pillows -  These certified non-toxic pillows are make from the same 60% natural plant oil formula you find in the Gemma beds and they are Oeko Tex certified for safety and no toxic VOC's.

Nest Bedding employs passionate and well-informed, well-trained staff to help our customer's get the best night's sleep they can get. Come on in and try our great mattresses and pillows. We have stores in Berkeley, San Francisco and Mountain View, and just opened up a great new location in the Los Angeles area.

Is Your Natural Mattress Store Really Natural?

You shop at Whole Foods and are conscientious about what you allow into your body and your home, but are the labels really revealing everything you need to know? Just because a company uses the word "Natural" doesn't mean it is organic. What makes our organic mattresses natural as compared to others in the market?

First, we are careful to use Certified Organic Cotton, Certified Organic Wool and Certified Organic Latex. We don't leave anything to chance. Then, we ensure we do not cross-contaminate our organic materials by segregating them in our factory to ensure they are not contaminated by other materials such as memory foam and polyester materials used to make conventional mattresses. 

Another key factor is we do not have our covers made miles away then shipped to our factory. They are made in the same factory to ensure a chain of custody. Many of the other natural mattress stores have their covers made and then trucked in a common carrier truck, potentially exposing them to the harmful chemicals in the common carrier truck box. Our covers are made by the same artisans making your mattress, to order, by hand, especially for you.

Then, to ensure again that your product is not contaminated by other non-organic materials, our mattresses are compress-packed and vacuum sealed to prevent contamination, and moved via FedEX ground. FedEX ground doesn't handle caustic chemicals on their small package vehicles, ensuring your mattress is less likely to be exposed to contaminants as our competitors.

Nest Bedding is currently in the process of having our factory and our finished products certified organic to give our customer's the peace of mind you can draw from valid third party testing and oversight. We are careful to use only valid third party certified organic materials to make our natural mattresses, making us one of the best priced and most organic natural mattress stores in town, and throughout California. 

Can your natural mattress store stand the scrutiny of your questions of how their beds are made, shipped and delivered to your home?
