Last Month I had the privilege of touring the My Green Mattress Factory. I had reached out to the company for a collaboration, because Alex and I were looking for a new, organic mattress, and they were local! I was pleasantly surprised to be invited to tour the factory of the new mattress I would be sleeping on!
My Green Mattress was founded in 2007 by a mattress craftsman, Tim Masters. He created this mattress out of necessity for his infant daughter, Emily, who suffered from eczema, and environmental allergies. Tim has been making mattresses since he was 17, and was inspired to develop an all natural crib mattress made from only the healthiest and most honest materials. As a result, My Green Mattress was born and would later include a complete line of mattresses for the entire home.
When I arrived at the factory I pictured a large, industrial looking building with several employees to maintain the business they have become. However, it was just the opposite. I was greeted with smiling faces, and the most sincere introductions. I felt such a family type atmosphere, and could tell how respected the employees were. I was able to meet each employee (there is only a handful), and learn about how each one of their jobs is an essential part to completing every mattress they make.
When I think about a factory I think about the ones you see in movies, you know where the machines do all of the work. At My Green Mattress a majority of the mattress is handcrafted right inside of their family owned factory, which is ENTIRELY organic. When I went around to each work station. I was so impressed to see each employee working efficiently with their hands, some were even hand stitching, and hand tufting every mattress, which is very time consuming, but they think is worth it!
Just take a look at their factory for yourself : Factory Tour
I mentioned above how important an organic mattress was to Alex and I when we were looking to purchase a new one, and that was what initially drew me to My Green Mattress. When a company stamps an “organic” label on their product you want to believe them that it is in fact organic, but they might not be as organic as they are telling you, or have the third party proof to show for it. At My Green Mattress in 2019 they were awarded the GOTS and GOLS Organic Factory Certification from the Control Union. To pass the inspection of these awards their factory must be :
- Made from organically grown, harvested and processed materials
- Manufactured in their facility in and environmentally and socially responsible way
- Labeled and stored in the facility in a way that is easily trackable
And the latex in the mattresses must be :
- Harvested from the sap of organic rubber trees
- Processed in an organic and environmentally friendly way
- Manufactured in their facility in a way that meets organic standards
When you are looking to purchase from a company these two certifications are important, because they are proving to you that a third party has verified the organic status of the materials used, manufacturing process, and the mattresses. With these labels My Green Mattress is putting your mind at ease, and proving that you will be protected from the dangerous chemicals often found in conventional mattresses, including formaldehyde, flame retardants, and VOCs emitted from materials like polyester and polyurethane foams. Instead, they are making their mattresses from only eco-conscious, sustainable, organically grown, organic wool and organic latex that are healthy for you and our planet. No more worries about what you’re sleeping on, because this certificate ensures you are purchasing the safest, most natural mattresses available!
In addition to the factory tour I was able to visit the showroom where customers can come in to test out the My Green Mattress, as well as, test out their leading competitors mattress. During my visit I learned that not all organic mattresses are created equal, and why My Green Mattress reigns superior to the Avocado mattress.

Alex and I have been sleeping on the King size Natural Escape Mattress for a few weeks now, and I am so excited to shout it from the rooftops just how wonderful this mattress really is! The Natural Escape is their most luxurious and most popular mattress for adults. This mattress is handcrafted with a 5-zone pocketed coil innerspring that offers enhanced lumbar and edge support. The Natural Escape provides soothing pressure point relief for all sleeping positions. It would also be perfect for a child because it adapts well to growing bodies.
When you choose a My Green Mattress you have 120 nights to try it out, and if you decide that it is not the right fit you can exchange it for a different one, or get a full refund. Your mattress will come with a 20 year warranty, and free shipping right to your door! Purchasing from a family owned company means you will receive the best customer service from a real person who answers the phone. In fact, it could even be the owner of the company!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read through my experience with My Green Mattress, and why I think it will be the perfect mattress for any member of your family!
