From packaging to bed frame and mattress materials, FloBeds of Fort Bragg, California has created the world's first completely green sleep system.

"Every part of the Green Mattress bed -- made of cotton, wool, latex and pine -- is 100 per cent biodegradable and recyclable," explained Dave Turner, bed inventor and owner of FloBeds, a company founded in 1979 to create personally crafted mattresses.

The Green Mattress is made of natural latex from rubber trees with no petro-based or other harmful chemicals used in processing. The latex is biodegradable and Oeko-Tex Certified. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 provides the textile and clothing industry with a globally uniform standard for the objective assessment of harmful substances for the first time. Raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of processing throughout the manufacturing chain, including accessories, are tested and certified.

Organic Cotton, Pure Wool Covers
The cover for The Green Mattress is made of organic cotton and pure Mt. Shasta EcoWool, natural fibers that provide maximum airflow around your body and natural wicking so you sleep cool and dry. Woolgatherer Carding Mill uses BioSoft Wool Scouring Detergent, which leaves no detectable residue and is 100 per cent biodegradable.

FloBeds foundations are made from wood sustainably harvested from Ponderosa Pine forests in the western U.S. and birch forests in Western Europe.
