Full My Green Mattress Series ReviewIn this review we cover the four most popular mattresses offered by MyGreenMattress.com: Pure Echo, Natural Escape, Simple Latex and Emily Crib.
The Green Mattress is a small family-owned business that is dedicated to crafting all-natural mattresses.
This idea stemmed from their owner’s daughter’s health issues.
Eczema and allergies are often aggravated by synthetic materials and noxious chemicals that can be found in all sorts of fabric, including mattresses.
So the maker of the Green Mattresses set out to solve not only his daughter’s issue, but for other people who had similar concerns.
And that is how Green Mattresses were developed and they are all made up of natural wool, organic cotton, and 100% natural rubber latex. Furthermore, they are handcrafted and made in the United States.
Even the wool used by the Green Mattress is sourced locally. The mattresses utilize wool from sheep, raised and sheared in Southern Oregon and Northern California.
The company’s range offers four different types of less toxic mattresses that are comfortable, supportive, and economical.
In addition to this, the factory-direct bedding company does not have to pay big bucks to get bedding stores to sell its mattresses, so the savings is passed along to you.
Although, the cost of Green Mattresses are a little pricier than some of the big-box mattresses you can find out there, but that is because of the presence of all-natural materials in these mattresses.
Have a look at this short video:
What Kind of Mattresses are These?
The Green Mattresses are all about durability, comfort, support, and bounce of all natural materials used in their construction.
Here are the following 4 types of Green Mattresses:
These days, one of the most economical and popular mattresses out there is undoubtedly the Pure Echo mattress.
It is the company’s best selling mattress.
This medium firm mattress is hand crafted with hypoallergenic and all-natural materials, like eco-wool and organic cotton, offering an innerspring alternative.
It has a state-of-the-art spring system which is quite beneficial for lumbar support.
In addition to this, the mattress not only contours to your body but also alleviates motion transfer.
In addition to this, the pocketed coil system gives you more solid edge protection along with a true edge to edge comfort feel.
If you decide to opt for this mattress, there are two options to pick from- a one-sided bed which is upholstered on one side only and a two-sided one which is upholstered on both sides.
The two-sided one enables you to easily flip the mattress and also double its longevity.
This mattress is perfect for children, teens, and adults. It is also hypoallergenic, so you do not have to worry about mildew, bacteria, or mold.
Heavier gauge coils in the middle of the mattress offer premium lumbar support and it is also where 50% of body weight is carried so it prolongs the life of your mattress.
The mattress is very bouncy, which is a feature of natural latex mattresses.
It is a good option for side, back, and stomach sleeping for most people.
It is the company’s entry into the spring free mattress market.
It is handcrafted from all natural materials and offers a healthy way to achieve a great night’s sleep.
Being a 100% natural latex mattress, it is a very good sleep option, as it offers an excellent combination of soft touch along with a firm support that is perfect for relieving pressure from the sensitive joints of the human body. It is available in a 7″ and 9″ mattress.
The 7″ is a firm bed and it is ideal for back or stomach sleepers who require a more structured feel.
The 9″ mattress is topped with a 2″ layer of Ultra Soft Latex and it provides a much more forgiving feel on the shoulder and hips.
This mattress is an ideal choice for side sleepers.
Emily Crib Mattress
This is a high quality, thicker mattress made up of organic cotton and natural wool that has not been treated with any harmful chemicals, but is naturally flame-resistant.
The mattress allows your baby to sleep as close to nature as possible at an economical price.
It has 150 individually wrapped coil springs, thereby making it just as nice as what adults sleep on.
It is quite well-made, and you will be able to use it for years and for future kids as you add to your family.
How Firm are They?
It is rated as a medium firm mattress and comes in at a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, 10 being the firmest.
It is best suited for back and stomach sleepers.
Side sleepers may find this mattress a bit too firm for the shoulders and hips.
However, for those seeking more pressure relief and conformity, must consider the Natural Escape. This mattress takes the next step in luxury by adding 3” of Natural Dunlop Latex.
With the Natural Escape mattress, you get a bed that is just right– not too hard and not too soft either.
It has a medium to medium soft feel and comes in at a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.
The addition of 3″ of Natural Dunlop Latex offers a more pressure relieving feel than the Pure Echo.
In addition to this, the Natural Dunlop Latex has a buoyant feel that builds the sensation of floating on top of the foam.
Together with the zoned pocketed coil system, the mattress offers great support and comfort.
Thus, side sleepers will tend to appreciate the additional conformity.
Furthermore, the extra bounce of the latex will work great for both side and back sleepers.
The mattress has a plush feel and is rated an 8.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.
It comes in two comfort options:
- 7” Simple Latex is a firm 32 to 36 ILD / Density: 90 bed that not only provides appropriate spinal alignment but also offers great support that is best suited for stomach and back sleepers.However, for the majority of side sleepers, this bed may be a bit too firm.
- 9” Simple Latex is a medium mattress with 6 inches of GOLS Certified Organic Dunlop Natural Latex and 26 to 28 ILD / Density.This is followed by another 2 inch layer of Ultra Soft Organic Latex that creates a more conforming and forgiving feel for side sleepers.
Emily Crib Mattress
It has also proven to be quite comfortable for the babies who have slept on it.
They typically wake up refreshed, happy, with absolutely no allergic reactions as in the past when sleeping on conventional standard mattresses.
How Are They Structured?
This is an 8 inch mattress that is made up of 4 Zoned Individual Pocketed Coil System.
It consists of a 15.5 gauge coil at its foot and head, and a 14.5 gauge “nested” coil on the center third. The mattress has been updated with this new and more comfortable spring system to offer a great lumbar support. The pocketed coils in the innerspring utilize a heavier gauge wire across the center third of the mattress with the objective to support the heaviest part of the body.
It is an 11 inch mattress that is made with a 3 inch comfort layer of 100% Natural Dunlop Latex which is placed on top of a pocketed 884-coil innerspring.
It is all natural and hand crafted, and offers the same innerspring construction of the Pure Echo.
Furthermore, the Natural Dunlop Latex gives the mattress a softer and more forgiving feel for your hips and shoulders.
This in turn, makes the Natural Escape mattress a favorite among side sleepers.
The 7 inch mattress consists of six inches of 100% natural Dunlop latex in a medium firmness that allows for a
comfortable and restorative sleep. This is covered with a 1 inch of soft organic cotton fabric quilted cover made up of all-natural wool giving you many nights of worry-free, comfortable sleep.
The 9 inch mattress consists of 6″ of pure organic latex. This is the layer that helps to maintain the rigidity which further adds support as well as the durability required for all body sizes and weights.
Above this layer is a 2″ deep softer variety which has been utilized to add a plush and more cushioned feeling which comfortably accommodates shoulders and hips to provide the perfect spinal alignment.
The final layer at the top of the mattress is the 1” quilted wool cover. This is a relatively new mattress which is certainly worth considering, especially given that it is hand made to the highest standards.
This is handcrafted with the highest quality materials including a natural Eco-wool quilted cover and GOTS certified organic cotton, GOTS certified organic cotton batting and a heavy duty 150 coil innerspring with supportive edge.
How are Motion Transfer and Sinkage?
The mattress offers maximum support and reduces motion transfer, thus contouring to your body. The 768-count individually wrapped coil system helps to accomplish this.
Aside from the natural wool and cotton, the natural latex utilized in the bed allows the mattress to conform to your body, thereby ensuring that your sleep is restful.
Some sleepers prefer contouring support while others prefer beds with a springy bounce, and with Natural Escape you can have both.
In addition to this, the mattress is covered with a natural wool quilted cover, thereby giving you the best of both worlds. One of the most noticeable features about this mattress is just how bouncy it is.
It immediately snaps back into place when you move around, thereby giving it a more “on” the mattress feel rather than “in” the mattress.
This in turn also makes it easier to move around.
It is quite possibly the best latex mattress available on the market and aptly named, it is simple and organic.
The initially springy and soft nature of the material conforms to your body, but then the rigidity kicks to support your body weight.
The innerspring mattress has good resilience, which is important. If a baby sleeps on its stomach, which is both common and recommended, the mattress does not leave an indent, thereby making it easier for a baby to change positions.
It also has an excellent edge support, so you do not have to worry about your child rolling over to the edge and falling in between the crib and the mattress.
Once your child starts standing and bouncing in their crib, you will be grateful for that strong edge.
The Emily Crib Mattress is standard crib size, thus it should fit snugly.
Do My Green Mattresses Sleep Hot?
Thermoregulation is an important aspect of sleeping and what many do not realize is that, before your body is able to completely drift into the deeper stages of sleep, your body temperature needs to drop a little.
This cannot be achieved in a bed that sleeps hot.
In fact, a temperature of less than 54 and more than 75 Fahrenheit can negatively impact the quality of your sleep.
However, the Green Mattresses help to maintain the right temperature for deeper sleep.
In addition to this, it uses natural latex in its mattresses that is derived from the sap of the rubber tree.
This is a much safer and of course, more natural alternative to synthetic memory foam.
Furthermore, it is better at heat circulation, thereby making the mattresses more breathable.
There are also cotton insulator pads in the Emily Crib Mattress that are punched with needles in order to create the necessary ventilation that a mattress requires.
This allows for the air circulation a crib mattress needs to prevent heat from being trapped in the mattress.
Do They Smell When New?
The Green Mattresses do not have any chemical odor and they do not even off-gas any dangerous chemicals.
Although organic cotton, Dunlop latex and natural wool do not off gas toxic odors but they can at times omit natural odors.
Also, these scents are not unpleasant or noxious, and dissipate in a short period of time.
However, if you are sensitive to these natural odors, the company recommends airing out your new bed or leaving it in the sun in a dry climate before sleeping on the new mattress.
If you are in the market for a high quality and Eco-friendly mattress, then you will be impressed with what you receive with the Green Mattresses.
Overall, the Green Mattress come with a genuine origin backed by credentials you can certainly count on.
The Green Mattresses also make their beds flame-retardant by quilting natural wool into the organic cotton cover of their mattresses.
This implies that it passes all required burn tests without using any harmful chemicals.
Do They Require a Foundation?
The mattresses are designed to work on most flat surfaces including the floor.
However, if you choose a boxspring or slatted foundation, make sure the slats are no more than 3″ apart.
Also, in order to protect the mattress and the terms of its warranty, the company highly recommends placing your mattress while in use on a flat, firm surface and also covering your mattress with a waterproof mattress pad.
If your mattress is going on a basic metal frame, you may require a foundation.
The company also suggests not to use an old foundation unless it in pristine condition.
This is because a new mattress can fail quicker if not on an appropriate foundation.
Platform beds do not require any foundation.
However, they may require a bunkie board to add additional structure. If platform has slats that are more than 3″ apart, always go with the bunkie.
What Type of Cover do They Have?
The quilted cover of the mattress is made from GOTS organic cotton fabric and all-natural Eco-wool.
This wool is sourced from Oregon and California.
It contains no polyester fibers and can be washed in a biodegradable, mild alcohol-based soap that is GOTS organic compliant.
It is a natural fire retardant and is used in place of potentially dangerous chemical flame retardants.
This medium firm bed with a 3-zone pocketed coil innerspring base is topped with 3″ of 100% Natural GOLS Certified Organic Dunlop latex under a GOTS Certified Organic Cotton quilted cover that has All-Natural Eco-Wool sewn in to the underside of the cover.
This cover is breathable and, offers a cool and comfortable sleep surface.
Wool is a natural fire retardant and no toxic chemicals are required.
The cover is manufactured with GOTS Certified Organic Cotton as well as Oeko-Tex Certified Natural American Wool, and because of the material, the mattress has a medium firmness that gives you the best sleep you can ever find.
Organic cotton is woven into the mattress cover along with the wool and it creates a soft, cloud-like top, in order to make it comfortable for the baby sleeping on it.
In case of any accidents, you can also simply flip the mattress over as it is the same on both sides, thereby giving you more life out of the mattress.
The wool in the quilted cover for the Simple Sleep, Pure Echo, and the Natural Escape mattresses become a natural fire barrier.
These beds still pass the flame test required by U.S.
law but they utilize the natural fibers of wool vs. a noxious chemical like boric acid, making the Green Mattresses safer to sleep on.
What is the Best Way to Care for These Mattresses?
It is recommended to cover your mattress with a protector, so it can keep those dust mites away and keep the mattress clean.
Any type of moisture that hits your mattress shortens its comfort life by wearing down the foam.
In the absence of a protector, you may need to replace your bed more often for that “like new” feel.
Not to mention the fact that spills and moisture may void the warranty of the mattress.
Today, the majority of mattress covers have a waterproof layer in order to keep urine, sweat, and other liquids from reaching your mattress.
This in turn adds up to a much cleaner and longer lasting mattress without stains.
It is recommended to rotate the mattress head to foot every season, in order to minimize compression.
Also, to reduce the risk of body impressions the company recommends spinning or flipping the mattress once a month for the first six months and later spinning or flipping it once every three months for the longer life of the mattress.
Will They Last Long?
With foam mattresses, you usually tend to consider densities as this can give you an idea of how durable you can expect your mattress to be.
Since the company uses natural latex and is not blended, you can rest assured in knowing that its durability is even higher.
Many other mattresses claim that they use natural wool, but the Green mattresses use the best kind.
This natural wool is sourced from sheep that are raised in New Zealand.
The wool is bleached using hydrogen peroxide and given longer batting to prevent the mattress from being lumpy.
Size and Shipping
The mattress is packaged a bit differently than many other mattress-in-a-box products.
Instead of being compressed into a rectangular box, the Green Mattresses are rolled up into a cylindrical box and all that you need to do is simply lay it on the bed, cut open the top, and the mattress will easily unroll.
FedEX will deliver the mattress properly sheathed in both heavy plastic and cardboard.
Since the Green Mattresses are heavy, it is recommended to always have a second set of hands available to move them.
Delivery to your doorstep is absolutely free, however, for white glove in home set up, you will be charged an additional $99.
Once you receive the mattress, it is quite easy to set it up. All that you need to do is open your mattress in the room where you plan to keep it.
It is recommended not unpack your mattress until it is in the room where it will be slept on.
Next, place the roll-packed mattress on the foundation.
Next, cut along the seam of the mattress, being careful not to cut the mattress while cutting the packaging.
The mattress is compressed so it will quickly unroll.
Once unpacked, the mattress should be ready to sleep on immediately.
Night Risk-Free Sleep Trial and Guarantee
The company understands that your mattress is a long-term investment in your comfort as well as health and it wants you to b happy with your new mattress for years to come.
That is why the company offers a 100 night risk free trial, which implies that you can return the mattress within the first 100 nights from the date of delivery if you are not convinced with its quality or comfort.
The company suggests on using the bed for at least 100 days before making a decision as it takes some time for the body to adapt and adjust to new bed’s comfort levels.
If for some reason, you are still not satisfied with the mattress, then all that you need to do is contact the company within the first 100 nights from the date of delivery and they will schedule a free pickup for the mattress.
However, mattresses returned to the factory should be clean, free from odors and stains, and be in like new condition.
The company will not accept the return request if the mattress is dirty or damaged.
Although every one of their mattresses are eligible for a return for a full refund, the company offers one exchange per household that is, exchanges are accepted for another mattress model and not for another size.
Should you decide to make an exchange, you will be charged the difference of the cost of the new mattress.
Also, note that exchanged mattresses are final sale and not eligible for any further return.
In addition to this, custom-designed beds or beds with custom firmness level requests are final sale and certainly not eligible for return or exchanges.
All Green Mattresses are designed with a specific purpose in mind and although the company can accommodate most requests, they cannot extend the same sleep trial as their other mattresses for special request
My Green Mattress Warranty
