Green Sleep Materials
Green Sleep only uses grade A natural rubber for the core which supports the Green Sleep mattress. Natural rubber is is flexible, stable, and provides for superior comfort. Additionally, the rubber is absorbent and resilient, which contributes to to the regulation of heat and moisture.
Comes From Rubber Trees
The most common rubber tree is the Hevea brasiliensis and it is harvested by tapping the milk (sap) of the tree). Grown in North Malaysian plantations, these trees are chosen for their high-quality product. Because sheep graze the plantations and control growth, no herbicides are used in these operations.
To prevent destabilization, the Hevea milk is processed close the plantations where they are gown. Most manufacturers simply don’t have this issue, because they add chemicals to their products. We strive to bring you the purest products possible. We harvest our trees in the morning, mold them into sheets the same day, and promptly shipped to our Canadian facilities. Manufacturing the rubber where the trees’ milk is harvested, also helps sustain the local economy. Hence jobs are created with while avoiding the depletion of the natural resources of the country. This benefits everyone on the planet.
Our Rubber – Natural methods only
An injection system produces the purest natural product–Mattress cores are produced using an injection system helps them keep their shape. Natural soap, and air along with natural vulcanization agents are used to ensure purity. This causes the rubber to break down at the end of the mattress life cycle, being that it is a natural, biodegradable substance.
Benefits of Natural Rubber
You might be surprised to learn that Hevea milk contains an antibacterial substance which is a natural dust-mite repellent.
Superior durability and elasticity provide for mattress longevity
Rubber gives even support providing shape and firmness
Continuous comfortable sleep is provided along with flexibility and stability
Heat and moisture regulation are excellent
Superior air circulation provides relief from moisture and mold
All of the Green Sleep mattresses are made with 100 percent pure wool batting. Processed without chemicals, dyes, or oils, this wool has no residues processing–only comfortable warmth and absorbency.
Best of Care
Our wool comes from a Texel, Netherlands, where a small and conscientious business takes exceptional pride in its organic production of wool. The sheep live a stress-free life. The animals graze on land in the summer months that has never been used for any kind of agriculture, ensuring that freedom from contaminants, pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers. During the winter months, a climate-controlled barn with clean floors is stocked each day with fresh bedding and an ample organic food supply, where the animals are checked daily for continued health. The fleeces are then shorn from live animals and washed only with only hot water and vegetable-based soaps. No harsh detergents, chemicals, or chlorine bleach are used. Finally the fleeces are then processed, without the use of oils or bonding agents, using a a natural dust-mite repellent, into wool that retains between 4 percent and 6 percent lanolin.

In constructing our Green Sleep mattresses, it all begins with organically grown and harvested pure cotton. No green cotton is used. our products allow you to sleep and to breathe naturally and they are chemical-free and certified to the highest standards.
Industrialized countries commonly saturate their cotton plants with pesticides and herbicides and chemicals from fertilizer. Machine-picked cotton also gets impurities from oil, leaves, and soil.
insecticides in cotton would be reduced by 25 percent, if all the cotton in the world were grown organically. Hand-picking of cotton ensures that the resulting cotton fiber is the cleanest and purest product available. The fiber is grown with the highest standards in Germany and Switzerland into the wonderfully pure and soft fabrics used in all our products.
KRAV of Sweden is Europe’s oldest and most prestigious certification agency(www.krav.se/sprak/english.htm). Their stamp of approval is a solid guarantee of organic standards
