    Savvy Nugget

    At Naturepedic, we promote the concept of detoxing your home to make for the best environment. This process, however, will not happen overnight, but there are some steps you can take to slowly and surely improve your home. Trying switching your conventional cleaners for lemon, white vinegar and essential oils. Invest in an air purifier, add some detoxifying plants to your space and use beeswax candles instead of the traditional candle and you are on your way to non-toxic living.

    Story

    Naturepedic was founded by Barry A. Cik, a veteran in the field of environmental engineering with over 30 years of experience chasing chemicals. In anticipation of his first grandchild, Barry went searching for a suitable baby crib mattress. Sadly, he found that all of the crib mattress offerings on the market were completely unacceptable. Most bedding manufacturers, to his shock, used harmful chemicals and materials in both the assembly process and the final products. “I knew all about vinyl/PVC, polyurethane foam, and the various chemicals contained in them, and there was no way I was going to put my grandchild to sleep within a few inches of these chemicals.” Barry then set out to find a suitable organic baby crib mattress, but no organic mattress company offered what he was looking for. “All of the organic baby crib mattresses on the market were not waterproof… if the mattress were to get wet, it would grow mold and fungus without any effective way to clean it.” According to Barry, “the organic baby mattresses were nothing more than miniaturized adult mattresses, which made little sense for babies.” Barry, together with his two sons, set out to found Naturepedic, a non-toxic and organic mattress manufacturer dedicated to providing parents with a better alternative. They created the first and only waterproof organic baby crib mattress designed with a patented food-grade polyethylene cover, which is made without harmful chemicals and meets food-contact standards. Today, Naturepedic has a large and growing network of retail outlets and signature Organic Mattress Galleries across the country and abroad, and we have launched many new products and models to meet the growing demand for high-quality, non-toxic mattresses and bedding for adults and children.

     
    We have expanded our baby collection to include crib mattresses, toddler pillows, mattress pads and protectors, and so much more. Our children’s collection includes organic mattresses, sheets, and pillows, including our 2-in-1 mattress. We further expanded to meet the demand for organic adult mattresses and bedding with comfortable and customizable mattresses and pillows to satisfy even the most discerning customers. Throughout all of this, we have remained faithful to our mission of providing the world with safer, healthier sleep in an environmentally and economically responsible way.
