Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, September 25, 2013
CLEVELAND — Naturepedic and Lullaby Earth mattresses received an award at the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable's 2013 MVP2 Awards ceremony for being a charter member of the Roundtable's Safer Chemistry Challenge Program.
The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable promotes toxics reduction and safer chemical alternatives and products.
Sister brands Naturepedic and Lullaby Earth, located in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, were recognized for designing and manufacturing mattress products with safer chemistries. The company said the products are designed to meet all government flammability standards without the need for fire barriers or flame retardant chemicals or other controversial chemicals.
Naturepedic produces certified organic baby mattresses and recently launched a line of organic adult luxury encased-coil and latex mattresses. It says its cotton-encased coil organic mattresses are certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard. In addition, all the latex is certified to the new Global Organic Latex Standard, which the company helped pioneer.
Lullaby Earth offers affordable, super-lightweight, non-toxic, and recyclable crib mattresses that are also packed with health and safety features for babies, the company said. The crib mattresses are free of vinyl/PVC, polyurethane foam (including "soybean" foam), PFC- and antibacterial-treated fabrics, as well as controversial fire retardants and known allergens. They are also waterproofed with easy-to-clean food-grade polyethylene.
