Getting it Just Right

Share

Our Natural Latex Twice Fluffed Pillows are put through the shredder twice to give them optimum loft. Shape them for your sleeping position: higher for your side, neck support when on your back. With two zippered covers (an inner organic sateen cotton and an outer organic Euro-stretch-knit). And, most important of all… our Twice Fluffed Pillows are adjustable: simply open the cover and remove until your pillow is Just Right.

You don’t have to just take our word for it. Below is a review from our customer Sylvia:

“The shredded latex pillow by FloBeds, was a shot in the dark, and I found light! I now have no neck pains. Being able to adjust the pillow for my needs, makes so much since, I took out about 5 handfuls, while my husband left his full, to each his own with the FloBed Dream pillow.”

Spring (good)… Springs (not so good)

Organic Wool - Comfort and Fire Resistant, Naturally

It rained again today.  What a blessing.

We have had 3 years of very dry weather.  The thought of mandatory water rationing is not pleasant, but was on the horizon before these last two storms.

I hope the rain continues.

Curious Lambs
Spring Lambs are curious!

The sheep need it too!

Spring lambs are frolicking.  They will be making future FloBeds wool and live to an old age.  Are sheep-years like dog-years?   One thing is certain: our customers don’t count sheep!

Maybe you should consider a natural latex mattress made with 100% pure milk of the rubber tree foam rubber cores surrounded by organic cotton and organic wool (the wool is our way of making a fire-safe mattress that meets US Open Flame Mattress Standards).  No more counting sheep… just enjoy the great qualities of latex and wool in a chemical free bed of your dreams!

Da‘Quan Bowers is BIG on FloBeds

“Football is a tough sport to recover from, even when 100% healthy. But it is even tougher when you have injuries. Since coming in to the NFL I have had surgery on my knee and on my achillees. Having two different comfort-levels on each side of my bed, and the fact that FloBeds customized the length of my bed so my legs don‘t hang off the bottom has been HUGE to my recovery.”

Having two different comfort-levels on each side of my bed, and the fact that FloBeds customized the length of my bed so my legs don‘t hang off the bottom (like they do everywhere else) has been HUGE to my recovery. I have not had to lay on a couch to keep my legs elevated, and I’ve been able to sleep comfortably through the night with 2 lower-leg injuries. “

I cannot thank Dave and Dewey enough for building me a ridiculously comfortable bed that has been even more valuable to me and my recovery than I could’ve imagined. Thank you guys so much!

My FloBed does it everytime … I get in it and literally don‘t make it past 20 minutes, even when trying to watch TV or stay awake!”

Buying a Green Mattress

Share

People who care about the environment and live a green lifestyle want their bed to be all-natural too.

Purchasing a mattress is a significant investment, so here are some tips to help you get the best value when you buy green.

First, know what materials to look for. You’ll avoid mattresses made of environmentally unfriendly materials if you look for organic cotton, untreated wool, natural latex and sustainably harvested pine.

The organic cotton should be where it counts most… next to your body. Organic cotton is the original sustainable fabric, grown and processed with out chemicals.

Mattress covers should include natural wool. Wool is naturally fire and pest resistant, so a blend of wool and cotton is better than cotton-only. Organic wool allows air-flow around your body, and naturally wicks away moisture. You’ll not only sleep cool and dry, but sleep with peace of mind, knowing the wool is the finest wool gathered in the most sheep-friendly way. Organic wool is free of pollutants and harmful substances with zero chemicals used during the growing and processing. There should be wool on all six sides of the mattress.
When you look inside of a green mattress, expect to find certified natural latex. Not foam, not metal springs, just layers of 100% natural latex. 100% natural means there are no petro-chemicals, just natural rubber harvested sustainably from the rubber tree. 100% natural latex is a great green choice as it’s biodegradable and Oekotex Certified.

The wood foundation should be all natural too. Look for foundations made from FSC certified pine sustainably harvested from Ponderosa Pine forests in the western United States and Birch Forests in Western Europe.

Next, learn about the maker of the mattress; this is easy since very few companies specialize in building green mattresses.

Visit their web site to see what they have to say, and ask around to see what their customers say about their products and service. Then call the company and see how much they know about green products and what they’re like to work with.

Once you find a mattress made of quality organic materials, produced by a company with a good reputation for quality and service, find out where to purchase their bed. Most retail mattress stores do not offer all-natural mattresses so the best place to find a green mattress is online.  Buying on-line direct from the manufacturer works because you get to really sleep on the bed so you know how your body feels in the morning.  Just make certain they have a money back guarantee and will work with you to get ‘just right’.

Buying on-line can also be good for the environment. Ask if the company uses Smart Packaging to save on resources. A king size mattress and foundation can be shipped in just 4 small cartons which saves fuel and trees. And buying direct from the factory saves fuel and distribution costs.

recycle green mattress: latex, woo, cotton

Finally, you can rest easy if you know your green mattress can be recycled at the end of it’s life. Every part of a green sleep system should be 100% recyclable and biodegradable.

FloBeds was the first mattress company to use wool (and no chemicals) to pass the new Federal FR standards.
