Years ago I read “Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things“.
It made so much sense. We began applying the cradle-to-cradle philosophy to FloBeds and we never looked back.
The concept is simple yet powerful. The Cradle to Cradle standard is a multi-attribute, continuous improvement methodology that provides a path to manufacturing healthy and sustainable products for our world.
We source every component that goes into our Organic Natural Latex Mattress line to be sure they are:
1) serviceable, adjustable and reusable
2) all natural and as chemical free as possible
4) sustainably produced
I am pleased to report that our Natural Talalay Latex is certified by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
And now our Talalay Latex is certified Gold!
“My husband and I spent two years researching and trying out organic and all natural mattresses from manufacturers such as OMI, Savvy Rest, and Hastens before deciding on a Flobeds mattress. We took a road trip to Fort Bragg just to try out the talalay latex mattress and we could not be happier with our purchase.
My husband is a rotating shift worker and a good night’s sleep is extremely important. When our Costco latex mattress started to sag in the middle after only a few years we decided it was time to upgrade to a mattress with a longer life and better support. When I read the research on the chemicals used in cheap latex mattresses and the off-gassing that occurs with chemically stabilized talalay latex I quickly became convinced of the need for an all-natural and organic alternative. I also spent a lot of time comparing Dunlop latex vs. talalay latex mattresses and was reassured to learn that the process Flobeds uses to create their talalay latex is all natural without any chemicals used to stabilize the latex. There is no question that Flobeds is offering a top-of-the-line quality product at a significant discount than their competitors.
Following over an hour of extensive showroom research we decided that a Z-Zone talalay latex mattress was the right fit for us (v-zone over firm over extra firm). We also bought the euro slat foundation and like the flexible support if offers. The bed shipped in a week and was easy to assemble as per the instructions and online video.
What should really be noted is the exceptional level of customer service. Our salesperson, Dewey, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and his father Dave was also a delight to work with. We both love the sleep firmness guarantee and plan on buying a medium or soft layer to accommodate a possibly pregnancy in the next few years.
This was a major purchase for us and we really felt more comfortable dealing with a company that will stand behind our mattress. With over 33 years in the business, Flobeds is obviously leading the industry in quality and customer service. ”
We love getting Yelp Reviews. Here is what the most recent Yelper said:
“Best mattresses EVER! After trying out about 5 different kinds of beds and manufacturers, I will always buy another FloBed. It just doesn’t get any more comfortable or custom than this. Prompt delivery and easy to put together. I downsized from a king FloBed recently to a queen FloBed and love it just as much. The king was still in great shape after 12-15 years, I just needed a smaller bed for my place. Don’t even bother with other companies. FloBeds stands by their workmanship and are the most customizable that I’ve found. They have a terrific replacement policy once you buy from them…as your needs change, you can upgrade parts of your mattress for very little money. Ask about this “Goldie Locks” program. Plus, you will never feel your partner flop around. Back problems are all resolved…even with a serious spinal compression fracture. I healed using this bed and will always maintain good back health on this bed. I have the original FloBed.”
If you have called FloBeds you have probably spoken to Dewey Turner. Dewey started full time at FloBeds in 2003! His fondest memory is when he went to Utah in 2009 to get a new Edge Sweets Latex-Foam Horizontal Saw. That saw made it possible for FloBeds to control the quality and precision of the latex layers in every latex mattress.
Every Talalay latex core is slit into two 3 inch cores with the horizontal saw. The new (center) surfaces are inspected to make sure there are no voids. It then moves on to the vertical saw to be trimmed to size.
Thank you to all of our amazing customers who have written reviews for FloBeds. Your reviews help other people understand just how important a great mattress is for a better night’s sleep.
4-Star–I purchased two organic FloBeds last October. Every night I get into bed and say “I love my bed”. I am so thankful for the team of experts at FloBed. They customized our beds perfectly. I also purchased the cotton sheets, wool mattress covers and the contoured neck pillow. All are wonderful. The neck pillow is perfect. It is a wonderful feeling knowing that you are doing everything possible to protect your health from chemicals and EMF’s while you are sleeping. Organic latex and no metal in the mattresses or the bed frame keep me confident and peaceful. My teenage son would probably sleep all day in his FloBed if he could. Thank you so very much. A great nights sleep is priceless. Vicki Leesburg, FL

Many people who work in offices sit at desks for 8 hours! This can cause back pain. The yoga instructor featured in the video below is named Jake and he says, “Back pain is an epidemic in America. And the pain is accentuated by our desk culture and the use of mobile devices.” (Yoga With Jake: 10-Minute Yoga Routine to Ease Back Pain) So if Jake was describing you, or if you are looking for a good stretch take a look at the video below.
No matter how you are celebrating the 4th of July, we hope you have a great day!
We will be enjoying the World’s Largest Salmon BBQ up here in Fort Bragg again (even as the smoke get’s in our eyes… that’s our Dave with Judge Luther at the grill. The gang cooked over 2,500 dinners!) . “Join the fun at this annual event, sponsored by the Salmon Restoration Association to raise money to take positive action to restore salmon to our rivers and streams. Great food, live music and a love of the outdoors are all part of the atmosphere at the BBQ. Have a great weekend!
After the fireworks, as you lay your head on the pillow… imagine: drifting into a fabulous sleep on a FloBed natural latex mattress
Have you ever stoped to think what your ideal day would look like? People are different, so do not force yourself to adhere to the typical daily routine. If you work a 9-5 job you will have to work around those times but you can still figure out what works best for you.
Important to keep in mind:
-Don’t forget to take breaks when you work
-Step out side for some fresh air
