Naturepedic is the leading U.S. manufacturer of organic mattresses and bedding for the whole family. Its beautiful organic mattress gallery is located at the Pike & Rose shopping complex in North Bethesda.
There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to bring you your beloved beds and bedding!
First of all, farmers and ranchers in the US and around the world work hard to grow or produce the organic cotton, wool, kapok, and latex that fills or wraps around Naturepedic beds, pillows and sheets.
But we don’t stop there. We get our inputs certified to the most stringent textile processing standards that exist – the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) for the cotton, kapok and wool, and the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) for the latex. These standards prohibit the use of toxic inputs during the manufacturing stages, and ensure that workers throughout our supply chain – including the people in our Ohio facilities – are taken care of.
Naturepedic is the only GOTS-certified mattress company in Maryland and Washington, DC.
We put the same care into every step that goes into making the finished products that make their way into your homes, including using only Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood and food-grade polyethylene and PLA, both from non-GMO sugarcane. In addition, our organic ingredients are Non-GMO Verified, and their organic status verified by certification to the Organic Content Standard.
The story behind the products continues. Tough policies and standards must be developed, protected and expanded. That’s why we’re active members and supporters of the Organic Trade Association, Textile Exchange, The Organic Center and the Sustainable Furnishings Council. Their staffs work tirelessly to defend attacks on the organic and sustainable name. We’ve also provided research on organic fiber markets and helped raise the visibility of organic textiles through promotional activities.
There is still much work to be done, and we intend to be helping every step of the way. For you, for workers, and for the Earth.
