We spend one third of our lifetime in bed, so a natural sleep surface is one of the most important investments you can make. Why? Conventional mattresses are chock full of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that are extremely hazardous to our health including flame retardants linked to allergies, asthma, hormone disruption, endocrine problems and cancer. Fortunately, there are many natural mattress alternatives including organic cotton, wool and natural latex.

Handcrafted right in the USA, The Pure Echo Mattress is one of the most affordable natural mattresses on the market today. The Chicago-based company takes great strides to source most of their materials from the U.S., including GOTS Certified Organic Cotton, natural wool, and 760 pocketed coils to reduce motion transfer and provide support where your body needs it. The Natural Joma wool serves as the Pure Echo’s fire barrier and meets all flame retardant standards without any of the toxic chemicals associated with conventional beds.
My Green Mattress founder Tim Masters was first drawn to the business not for financial reasons, but as a worried parent. Soon after Tim and his wife Cindy’s second daughter Emily was born she began struggling with severe eczema and allergies. And while Tim and Cindy consulted the best pediatric dermatologists, they also began their own research and found that all-natural furnishings could help alleviate Emily’s symptoms. After switching their infant daughter to an organic, toxin-free mattress her symptoms lessened dramatically.
Soon after this success Tim was inspired to bring organic bedding into the lives of others struggling with the same affliction. He began handcrafting a line of 100% all-natural mattresses made with eco-friendly materials including natural latex (derived from renewable rubber trees) and certified USA-sourced organic cotton ticking, thread, foundations, and innersprings. Instead of toxic flame retardants, he employed a natural Joma wool to meet flame retardant requirements.
Tim’s mattresses are completely hypoallergenic, using latex with anti-microbial properties that are resistant to dust mites, mold and mildew. They are also pressure relieving, designed to alleviate stiffness, pain, tossing and turning. Latex is also naturally breathable, keeping you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. And latex eliminates motion transfers, so one can rest easy even if their partner is restless.
