Parenthood is wrought with thousands of decisions we have to make regarding what's best for our children and our growing family. One of the decisions I've made as a Mama is to consistently try to remove toxins and harsh chemicals where it's easily possible. Instead of ditching all of our chemical-laden household items, I've instead focused on methodically replacing them a little at a time. This has been much easier on our budget and an overwhelmed Mama. :)


When it was time for Ada June to transition to a big girl bed, I immediately knew I wanted a mattress that would not only support her growing body, but also be safe for her to sleep on night after night. After all, children spend 1/3 of their little years on their mattresses! As I began researching, it felt difficult to know which mattress company to choose. There are so many organic mattress companies these days and mattresses are such a significant investment.

I was so happy when I discovered My Green Mattress: a small, family-owned business that makes Certified Organic Mattresses right here in the US! I had the amazing opportunity to participate in a virtual factory tour and see firsthand the individuals making the mattresses, as well as meet the owner, Tim. Tim shared the sweet story of working in the factory for the original owner, who was committed to the utmost level of customer service and quality of their products. Tim later grew passionate about utilizing Certified Organic materials when his daughter, Emily, began suffering from environmental allergies and eczema.


My Green Mattresses are made by Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas, Aunts and Uncles--people committed to exquisite craftsmanship that keeps the youth of America sleeping safe and sound. It has meant the world to me tucking her in each night knowing all the hard work that went into forming the mattress where she now so sweetly sleeps.

My Green Mattress now makes a full range of mattresses from Crib mattresses to California Kings--all handcrafted in their Certified Organic Factory. They prioritize safety and skeletal support as well. Tim was so knowledgeable about the varying support needs of different stages of growth and development.


But WHY choose a "Green" Mattress vs. their standard product competitors?


  • Free from toxins linked to asthma, allergies, and cancers of the nose, throat, and lungs

  • Removal of harmful pesticides and flame retardants linked to additional cancers and neurological problems (all mattresses sold in the United States must be able to withstand 30 minutes of open-flame exposure. MGM uses American made 100% organic wool as the natural flame barrier in their mattresses)

  • Handcrafted here in the United States

  • Supporting a small family-owned business

  • Designed to support your family at every stage of growth and development

  • Eco-friendly and biodegradable

  • Durability: natural latex is resilient and does not break down the way foam can; therefore, your investment will serve you much longer
