We are excited to announce that FloBeds became a Certified B Corporation® on the Autumnal Equinox, September 22, 2106. B Corps are a new way of identifying companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
Today, there are over 1,800 Certified B Corps around the globe, including Warby Parker, Patagonia and Ben and Jerry’s. In our little Northern Californian community of Fort Bragg we have Thanksgiving Coffee (the morning engine at FloBeds:), Harvest Market (feeds most of us), The Color Mill and North Coast Brewing (I don’t need to tell you what they do for us… except I should point out that they make an awesome Steller IPA and contribute a portion of Steller sales to help support our local Noyo Center for Marine Science, of which I sit on the board).
Here are some of the things that helped us qualify for certification:
Having a hard time falling asleep? Don’t worry you are not alone! This time of year is difficult as we are transitioning from summer into fall. Weather will be changing soon, children are going back to school, and before you know it Thanksgiving will be upon us. Life can get hectic, but it is important to take time out of your day to slow down. An easy way to wind down after a long day is bedtime yoga.
“Mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, and insomnia are among the most common reasons for individuals to seek treatment with complementary therapies such as yoga. Yoga encourages one to relax, slow the breath and focus on the present, shifting the balance from the sympathetic nervous system and the flight-or-fight response to the parasympathetic system and the relaxation response.”
Here is what one customer said about why she decide to get an adjustable base:
“I constantly struggle with pain in my sciatica. When I raise my feet and head at the same time in the adjustable bed, I feel some pressure relief in my back.
Also, my husband has asthma and finds that he sleeps best when he is propped up. Instead of using all of our pillows to prop himself up, now all he has to do is raise the head on his side of the bed.
It is convenient for both of us because we can adjust each side to fit our personal needs. Having the adjustable base for our FloBed natural latex matttress has made a huge difference in the quality of our sleep.”

In the final episode of our mini-series, Lea Laase describes her experience working with the FloBeds staff. Lea found that her husband’s side of the mattress was perfect but her side needed some adjustments. So she called the FloBeds team and was told over the phone what changes she could make to start sleeping comfortably. The great thing about purchasing a FloBed is we are only one call away. Our team is here to support you in your quest for a better night’s sleep.

Here is one customer’s Yelp review:
Literally, some of the best sales staff I have ever worked with. The crazy part, is that I have never even met these people in person. I feel like I’m a part of their family and that they honestly care about their customers and their products meeting the standards of their customers. I have been using my vzone bed for a little over a month now and my wife and I love it. I can also feel great about the fact that, if there ever comes a time when this bed doesn’t meet our specific needs, I can modify it to whatever specs I want (i.e. firmness). If my wife needs a change because she is aching from pregnancy, there are ways you can help with that with this bed. It’s truly an amazing company and I’m glad I did the research and took a hard look at the mattress industry to come to the conclusion to go with FloBeds. I couldn’t be happier.
Last year we had the pleasure of working with the Albion Schoolhouse. This beautiful vacation rental on the coast of Northern California has multiple FloBeds.
“Enjoy fresh air, the comforts of a fine hotel; a stage with live mics; a bounty of totally excellent board games; yoga mats; secret gardens; a big tv screen and a fully stocked kick-ass chef’s kitchen. Constructed in 1924, this grammar school served the town’s schoolchildren and community until 1995 when it was purchased by William Bottrell who spent 20 years lovingly restoring and renovating it.”
If you are looking for a getaway where you can get some peace, quiet and good sleep, look no further! It is always hard to go on vacation and leave the comfort of your FloBed Latex Mattress. A very important part of vacation is having the chance to catch up on your sleep. However, we all know what a gamble it can be when you go to a hotel and have to hope that the mattress is comfortable. Head on over The Albion Schoolhouse and you can rest assured that you will be able to catch some Z’s on a FloBed.
Our last blog post introduced one of our valued customers, Lea Laase. Lea purchased her FloBed over a year ago. In this second episode, she explains the research she went through to find the right type of mattress for her and her husband. In addition, Lea elaborates on the features of the FloBed Mattresses that really sold her. We hope that this customer story can help you in your search for a new mattress. Next week will be the final episode of Lea’s Customer Review Mini Series.
Finding a new mattress can be an arduous task. We all know the drill- you enter a mattress store, work with a pushy salesman and leave with a mattress you don’t want.
Here at FloBeds we like to do things a little differently. We educate customers about our latex mattresses, find the one that fits them best, guarantee a 100-night test rest and work with them to make any changes they may need.
Over the next few weeks, we will release videos about one customer’s experience with FloBeds. Many customers call into our shop or stop by and have similar stories to the one Lea Laase’s is sharing in the video below:
