How to Choose the Best Organic Mattress

We always thought mainstream mattresses were bad because they’re filled with toxic chemicals that make them flame retardant.

We believed that the tradeoff for inhaling endocrine disruptors all night was that if a fire broke out in your home, your mattress wouldn’t catch fire and your family would have more time to get out safely.

Most mainstream mattresses are actually made of mostly petroleum based materials – which are highly flammable (think gasoline) and sprayed with toxic flame retardants.

Because we spend one third of our lives sleeping, it’s really important to make sure we’re not inhaling toxins while the body is trying to rest and restore itself.


You’ll see one brand repeatedly mentioned below. While we do receive a small commission if you purchase a Naturepedic mattress through our links, we have not been compensated by the brand for this guide. They’re simply the absolute cleanest, safest option available.


Naturepedic goes beyond GOTS certification and has strict standards to provide only the safest mattresses. Not only are their individual materials certified, but the finished mattress is certified as well.


The Kiwi is their most popular organic kids’ mattress. And their safe option for babies and toddlers, the Emily Organic Crib just won a Good Housekeeping 2021 Parenting Award.
