Organic Mattress. Marketing, Myth or Mainstream?

Jun 21, 2013

Drive around the San Francisco area or Berkeley area and you will inevitably find "Organic" or "Natural" mattress banners or signs in store windows. Organic mattresses and Natural Mattress Stores are popping up everywhere. While these stores are not as popular as they are in the San Francisco Bay Area, Organic mattresses are certainly here to stay the Bay Area.

But is there such thing as an organic mattress? What is it?

While there are no governing bodies certifying mattress as organic (usually a food term), there are components to the mattress that are organic. Organic Cotton, Organic Wool, Organic Thread and Certified Organic latex. When composing the mattress with all organic components, it is fair to call a mattress "organic", though it is not officially certified as a whole.

Since the term "organic" when referred to in the mattress and bedding business is still just a marketing term, there are a lot of mattresses that get mistaken for organic when in fact only one or two components are truly certified as organic. You can type in "organic mattress" and even get search results for Chinese made polyurethane foam mattresses sold right here in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Nest Bedding in San Francisco and Berkeley, Ca, carries both natural and Oeko Tex Certified non-toxic USA made mattresses and bedding, with a commitment to carrying NO China made mattresses in our stores.
