So excited to share My Green Mattress review with you! I've tested out several different mattresses in the past but I kept getting asked the same question. Is there a budget friendly organic mattress option? Well, I searched and found My Green Mattress. It is not only squeaky clean when it comes to their ingredients and sourcing but also easy on the wallet! Basically, I struck gold.
Now you might be wondering why you should choose an organic mattress in the first place. So many reasons. I wanted to break it down for you.
Since they say we spend a 1/3 of our lives sleeping it’s important to consider the bed you’re sleeping on. I remember finding it alarming to learn all about the toxic ingredients in mattresses! From flame retardants, VOC’s, and formaldehyde- the toxic load can be scary. Not too mention, mattress companies are not required to disclose all the chemicals they use in order to make their mattresses compliant with mattress regulations. It’s also important to mention that many companies may claim to be organic, natural but actually have no certifications backing up these claims. Let's dive into My Green Mattress review below!

When I’m searching for a mattress I want to make sure it’s certified organic. Then I know it’s met third party testing. Look for the labels, GOTS, GOLS, and GREENGUARD.
Here are some facts about what makes certifications important. The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification ensures that their mattresses are:
*Made from organically grown, harvested and processed materials
*Manufactured in our facility in an environmentally and socially responsible way
*Labeled and stored in our facility in a way that is easily trackable
Similarly, the GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) certification ensures that the latex we use in our mattresses is:
*Harvested from the sap of organic rubber trees
*Processed in an organic and environmentally friendly way
*Manufactured in our facility in a way that meets organic standards
Having the GOTS and GOLS Factory certifications means you can literally trace all materials back to the original firms and lots where they grown. My Green Mattress is consistently audited to ensure that they are complying with the certification standards. I love knowing that My Green Mattress not only has these certifications but that they are routinely inspected. It gives me peace of mind as I'm sleeping at night.
Here’s a list of ingredients they avoid:
NO Flame Retardants or Flame Retardant Barriers
NO Memory Foam or other forms of Polyurethane Foam
NO Soybean or Biobased Foam (polyurethane foam with soybean oil mixed in)
NO Harmful Glues or Adhesives
NO GMO Cotton or other GMO fibers
I love this quote on their website:
We source the highest quality materials to give you the best and safest mattress—not because we have to, but because it’s the right thing to do.
I love that My Green Mattress is a family owned business. Tim, the founder created the mattress because his daughter Emily suffered from eczema and environmental allergies. Tim wanted a mattress that was pure and healthy for his children. Therefore My Green Mattress was birthed. An honest American owned company in Illinois. They handcraft all the mattresses in their factory there.
They also offer a 120 day sleep trial which really was the icing on the cake for me. Many companies don't stand by their mattresses like that. You literally get to try your new mattress out for 4 months and if you don't like it during the trial you can return it. I love this about the company. I don't know anyone else willing to make sure that the money spent on an organic mattress can be insured.
I really loved the “10 Things To Know Before Buying A New Mattress” post. This helped to guide me when choosing what type of mattress I really wanted. From what size of mattress, to firmness, even what mattress is best for those that suffer from allergies. My Green Mattress covers it all. They even have a section on their website that compares all of their mattresses so you can get a better idea which one will work for you. Check out the comparison here. If you still have questions when ordering your organic mattress, My Green Mattress is happy to help answer any questions you may have. Their goal is to make the process smooth and deliver an organic mattress that meets your needs.
Of course the My Green Mattress review wouldn't be complete without sharing my experience. After looking at their mattresses I chose the Natural Escape Mattress. I wanted something that would be more on the soft side and really offer the support I was looking for. Natural Escape fit all my requirements. Plus, after talking with My Green Mattress it was their most luxurious mattress they offered. When we got the mattress it was boxed tightly in plastic wrap. Setting it up was a cinch! My husband did it all. I created a little video I had shown on my Instagram stories to give you an idea. Check it out below!
It had an earthy straw like smell when it came out of the box but we just aired it out for a couple days and it went away. It wasn't repulsive at all, just like it had come out of the factory.
So how does it feel when sleeping on it? I thought you would never ask! 😉 As my husband says- it's super comfortable! The mattress actually came at the perfect time since I just had my third baby. My hubs had been sleeping on the couch off and on so he wouldn't wake up when SJ woke up in the middle of the night. So instead of the couch he started to sleep on the new mattress. I asked him for his thoughts. He said not only is it super comfortable but his back has never hurt when sleeping on it, it keeps him cool at night and he never wakes up. Now if you know my husband then this is saying a lot. He gets hot very easy and wakes up often when he is.
I second his sentiments. It feels very comfortable, I feel like my whole body is supported at night and that I get a deep sleep. I was concerned it might be too firm but it isn't at all. I've heard great things about their toppers and initially thought about getting one as well but really I don't think I even need one. Maybe down the road but it feels so nice without it. I would recommend trying it out first without it and then seeing if you need it once you sleep on it for several nights.
I can't recommend My Green Mattress enough! The whole experience has been great. I love how family friendly they are and affordable. The mattress we got is over half the price of our organic mattress in our bedroom and my husband said he likes it just as much! I'm so excited to find a budget friendly option for all of you when searching for an organic mattress. Knowing you can have peace of mind when you sleep at night and your kids sleep is the best feeling!
