Our mattresses are also GreenGuard GOLD certified. The GOLD-level certification means our mattresses meet strict low chemical emissions requirements and are safe for the most vulnerable populations (children and the elderly).
We have several other certifications to be proud of. Learn about them here.
Meeting the high standards of these third-party certifying bodies shows initiative and a dedication to offering organic and healthy products that are safe for both people and the planet. Savvy Rest never uses chemical flame retardants or synthetic materials that pollute our environment. Instead, we opt for organic fabrics and natural latex.
Organic and natural materials are another must-have when mattress shopping. As previously mentioned, we avoid using synthetic materials because of their harmful health effects. Toxins from the manufacturing process can end up in water supplies, and employees handling synthetic materials can have adverse reactions over time through breathing in harsh chemicals. These mattresses eventually end up in landfills, off-gassing and causing issues years after you’re done sleeping on them.
If you’re thinking, I don’t want my green mattress to cause any of that, then you’ll definitely want to opt for an organic one instead.
Savvy Rest organic mattresses are made with…
Certified Organic Cotton
Our mattress casings are made with 100% certified organic cotton. The cotton industry is known for its heavy use of pesticides. These harmful chemicals have serious consequences to both indoor and outdoor air.
You don’t want to eat an apple that has been sprayed with chemicals, so why would you want to spend 8 hours a night on a toxic mattress?
Breathing in and having close contact with these toxins can lead to a vast array of health issues, such as infertility, developmental brain disorders, and even cancer.
Certified Organic Wool
We use certified organic wool batting as a natural flame barrier instead of chemical flame retardants.
Wool is such a versatile and useful material. It promotes air circulation and never causes overheating and discomfort, something memory foam is notorious for. We offer several wool products, from pillows to toppers.
Our organic mattresses are made with natural latex instead of memory foam because natural latex is the healthier (and more comfortable) option.
Savvy Rest offers two types of latex: Dunlop and Talalay.
We compare Dunlop to pound cake since it’s the denser of the two (and it’s just fun talking about cake). Dunlop has an overall firmer feel and provides incredible support. While Dunlop can suit several different types of sleepers, it’s especially beneficial for those who sleep on their stomach and are more vulnerable to sinking into their mattress.
Talalay is the softer of the two types of latex. We compare it to angel food cake because of its plush and luxurious feel. Talalay is wonderful for side sleepers; it’s responsive and pressure-relieving.
Talalay is also breathable due to its open cell structure, something that is hard to find with synthetic materials. Just another reason to opt for a truly green mattress.
Both Dunlop and Talalay are available in Soft, Medium, and Firm densities, so you can mix and match layers to create the perfect mattress for your needs.
