Naturepedic, the US manufacturer of organic mattresses and bedding, has been certified by the Montgomery County Green Business Certification Programme. It uses only organic cotton, wool and latex in its mattresses, pillows and sheets. It is the only Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified mattress and bedding company in Maryland and Washington, DC.

Naturepedic becomes the 85th company to be certified to the Montgomery County Green Business Certification Programme.

The gallery also is the first company in the county to earn the certification for meeting the stringent Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which prohibits the use of toxic ingredients in organic apparel and home textiles. Only in January did the county’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) formally incorporate GOTS into its set of qualifying standards. In doing so, Montgomery County became the first and only US jurisdiction to formally recognise GOTS.

“It just makes sense - and is perfectly feasible - to only use organic and non-toxic inputs when making a mattress that people sleep on about eight hours a day,” states Barry Cik, Naturepedic technical director.

“Montgomery County is a national leader when it comes to environmental sustainability, so it is fitting that Naturepedic has chosen a livable, walkable, and accessible community like the Pike District for its DC area gallery,” says Montgomery County Council member Andrew Friedson. “I congratulate them on joining a diverse array of Green Business Certified companies, thank them for their commitment to organic products and enthusiastically welcome them to our community.”

Naturepedic only uses inputs such as organic cotton, wool and latex in its luxurious mattresses, pillows and sheets. It is the only GOTS certified mattress and bedding company in Maryland and Washington, DC.

Naturepedic also made sure both its Ohio-based manufacturing facility and nationwide galleries are Green America Green Business Gold-certified regarding their sustainable operating practices. Practices include using only LEDs bulbs, a water cooler versus bottled water, and recycling, among others. (SV)
