My Green Mattress was founded by Tim Masters, an experienced businessman, master craftsman, and devoted family man. The business started out making traditional mattresses nearly 50 years ago and just over 10 years ago, Tim started the My Green Mattress line when Tim’s daughter, Emily, inspired him to expand his offerings to include all–natural mattresses. Shortly after Emily was born, it was apparent that she suffered from eczema and allergies. Tim and his wife, Cindy, took Emily to see the best pediatric dermatologists, but also did their own research and found that all-natural products could help alleviate Emily’s symptoms. Tim realized it was time to offer all-natural mattresses to his customers, and rushed to put one in his daughter’s crib.
The My Green Mattress family of natural sleep products include the Emily Natural crib mattress, the best selling Pure Echo mattress, and the luxury hybrid GOLS certified organic latex and coil Natural Escape mattress. All their mattresses are hand-crafted to order in their manufacturing facility in La Grange Highlands, IL. All of My Green Mattresses’ sleep surfaces are GREENGUARD Gold certified. GREENGUARD Gold Certification is the benchmark in identifying safe products that tested not to emit toxic chemicals and are safe for use with children and the elderly.
The Pure Echo mattress is the ideal transitional mattress for children into their first “big-kid” bed, as it is firm enough to promote healthy growth, but still with a comfortable top feel. It is based on a 3-zone pocketed coil system with improved lumbar support, heavyweight organic cotton pads and batting, and an American Eco-wool and GOTS certified organic cotton cover. The mattress has a height of about 9 3/4 inches but is also offered in a 2-sided option, which comes in at a total height of 11 inches. The double-sided option is going to feel slightly less firm and provides identical sleep surfaces on both side with the ability to flip it.
The 3-zone pocketed coil system provides excellent lumbar support, helping to align the spine in a more natural position whether you’re sleeping on your side or back. The wool in their quilted cover acts as a natural flame barrier which enables their mattresses to pass flame testing required by law without the use of dangerous flame retardant chemicals. It is Eco-Wool that is sourced from pastures in California where the sheep are responsibly raised, cared for and sheared. The wool is cleaned with a GOTS organic certified alcohol based wash and not treated with any harmful chemicals or fire retardants.
On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the firmest, this mattress comes in at a 7. The Pure Echo is a medium-firm mattress with a springy bounce and comfortable top feel. For adult sleepers, the Pure Echo is great for most sleepers; side sleepers may want to consider adding an organic latex topper for added plushness and support at the shoulders and hips. They may also opt for the hybrid Natural Escape mattress with 3 inches of organic latex built in, which aids in cradling the pressure points.
My Green Mattress backs all of their mattresses with a 10-year warranty along with a 100 Night Sleep Trial. If you order one of their beds and aren’t in love, you can return it for a full refund.
