Few mattresses can match the Birch’s eco-friendly bona fides, including a bevy of organic materials and sustainable design. On top of that, side sleepers love this latex hybrid for its bouncy cushioning, steady support, and ease of movement across the bed’s surface.

Full Details

Who It’s Best For: The Birch offers deeper cushioning, and is a good choice for side sleepers weighing at least 130 pounds, back sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds, and stomach sleepers over 230 pounds. Its latex comfort layer lightly cushions the body without sinking or sagging around the midsection.

Feel: The Birch Mattress is medium firm (6) and offers modest cushioning from the latex comfort layer while providing even support for side sleepers. In general, latex hybrids appeal to those who want pressure relief and dislike the “”hug”” sensation provided by foam models. Our testing team loved its ability to stay cool thanks to materials that resist heat retention.

What It’s Made Of: The cover of the Birch is made with organic wool and cotton, and the top layer features organic latex that is springy and durable. The support core uses pocketed steel coils to enhance the edge support and stability that side sleepers look for in a mattress.

What We Don’t Like: The Birch is a premium bed, so it may not be the best option for budget shoppers. Its materials make it heavy, which might make set up more difficult. The springy materials can enable vibrations from a bed partner’s movement to transfer across the mattress surface.

Full Details

Who It’s Best For: People who appreciate the bounce of latex, side sleepers weighing at least 130 pounds, and back and stomach sleepers weighing up to 230 pounds prefer the medium-firm model, while the softer model suits side sleepers under 130 pounds.

Feel: Available in two firmness levels, medium (5) and medium firm (6), the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex is cool to the touch (and through the night) and is dense and bouncy.

What It’s Made Of: The Hybrid Latex mattress consists of an organic cotton cover layered with organic wool batting. The comfort layer consists of solid, ventilated Dunlop latex. Pocketed upcycled-steel coils make up the support core.

What We Don’t Like: With its middle-of-the road medium and medium-firm feel, it’s not the best option for those who prefer softer or firmer options. Also, if you’re used to the feel of memory foam, be aware that the latex won’t be as conforming.

Who It’s Best For: Those who suffer from back pain will find relief with an all-latex mattress, and with medium and medium firm options and mutiple thickness levels available, different body types and sleeping preferences will appreciate the hand-crafted, sustainable build and exceptional comfort of this bed.

Feel: Individual feel may vary depending on the firmness and height options you choose, but overall, latex is responsive, bouyant, easy to move across and well-ventilated to stay cool. An all-latex bed can feel a bit more firm than a latex hybrid but it’s ultimately more durable and even-keeled in the long run.

What It’s Made Of: All options of this bed include a top layer of wool batting that adds an inch to the profile. The cover encasing the mattress is made of organic cotton. The 9-inch and 10-inch model contain three individual latex layers, while the 12-inch model features four individual layers. Everything in this bed is certified organic.

What We Don’t Like: This mattress is quite heavy, weighing more than 200 pounds in its thickest and largest design, so set-up might pose a challenge. Latex beds also tend to have a higher price point, and the Botanical Bliss is no exception.

<strong>Who It’s Best For:</strong> Side and back sleepers weighing up to 230 pounds will like how this mattress pushes back against high-pressure areas of the body, hot sleepers will like the airflow from the open cells of the latex and coil support system, and eco-conscious consumers will appreciate the non-toxic and hypoallergenic components that make up the bed.

<strong>Feel:</strong> With a balanced, medium feel, the EcoCloud is plush while providing plenty of support. Unlike some other latex hybrids, this model also excels in pressure relief. The wool and organic cotton cover is a nice touch for softness and breathability.

<strong>What It’s Made Of:</strong> The 12.5-inch tall EcoCloud has a 4-inch Talalay latex comfort layer and zoned pocketed coils for targeted support. The cover is made of an organic cotton-wool blend.

<strong>What We Don’t Like:</strong> As with all latex beds, this mattress is heavy and may be difficult to lift. Side sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds might need a model that provides stronger pressure relief.

Who It’s Best For: Even though it is well-received across sleeper categories, The Nolah Natural 11 is better suited for side sleepers weighing at least 130 pounds and back sleeper under 230 pounds. It might not be best for people who like a softer sleep surface or budget-conscious consumers.

Feel: Compared to other latex hybrids, the Nolah Natural 11 performs particularly well in the cushioning category while maintaining the signature bounce of latex. The targeted zones of steel coils keep your spine aligned well, and it also sleeps quite cool thanks to its breathable materials and airflow from the core.

What It’s Made Of: The Nolah Natural 11 is made from two latex layers, with the first being softer and more adaptive than the second. The coils are zoned to be thicker and stronger beneath your torso and hips, and the cover is made of organic wool and cotton.

What We Don’t Like: Latex mattresses are all fairly bouncy, and the Nolah Natural’s surface may feel too bouncy for those sharing the bed with a restless co-sleeper, as it tends to transfer motion across the surface of the bed.

Co-sleeping means attempting to adapt to two different sets of needs in one bed. With this latex hybrid, couples will enjoy the way the mattress gives responsive support and allows them to freely move around, without getting stuck (as can sometimes happen with foam beds). Available in two firmness levels (medium and firm) and at a price print that’s very reasonable for latex.

Who It’s Best For: Firmness preferences differ among couples, but this mattress allows you to choose. The medium is popular across the board but works best for side sleepers weighing 130 to 230 pounds while the firmer option fares well among back and stomach sleepers.

Feel: Regardless of firmness level, the Latex for Less hybrids are bouncy and responsive and allows couples to move comfortably and independently, especially as they change positions through the night.

What It’s Made Of: Both 12-inch models have an organic cotton-wool blend cover, a wool comfort layer, and a 3-inch layer of organic latex. Individually wrapped coils make up the support core.

What We Don’t Like: Latex is bouncier than foam, and that motion can transfer across the mattress and disturb a sleeping partner. These beds can also be on the heavy side and be harder to move.

Watch Video: We Tested the Best Organic Mattresses of 2024 – Here Are Our Favorites

Watch our video below to learn more about our lab’s top picks for best organic mattress.

Expert Tested. Sleeper Approved.

Over the past eight years, our Seattle-based Test Lab has performed hands-on tests on more than 4,000 sleep products — and nearly 2,000 of them are mattresses. 

As product experts, we stay up to date on the latest news in sleep science and product trends. We use this knowledge to fuel our data-backed recommendations. Many of our testers have worked directly with mattress manufacturers and visited actual mattress factories. On occasion, a sleep health expert might stop by to tweak a firmness rating.

When we test a mattress, we collect data across six major performance categories and combine these results with real-world feedback. We use tools and tech to monitor features like heat retention, motion isolation, and pressure mapping. In order to ensure our findings are inclusive of all sleepers, our team consists of people with varying body types and sleep positions.

Mattresses aren’t one-size-fits-all. The perfect bed for you is going to depend on general points like your body weight and sleeping position, as well as unique points like if you have back pain, if you sleep hot at night, or if you just like the feel of latex over memory foam. Our goal at the Test Lab is to help take the guesswork out of your mattress-buying process.

So How Did We Pick the Best Organic Mattresses?

When deciding on our top picks for best organic mattress, we looked primarily at beds made with eco-friendly materials — especially those with GOTS and GOLS certifications to back up organic claims. Once we ruled out beds made with non-organic materials, such as foam, we singled out models that earned high marks in key performance areas such as pressure relief and cooling.

Why Should You Consider Buying an Organic Mattress?

Organic mattresses typically feature durable and hypoallergenic construction, low levels of odor emissions, and eco-conscious materials. They’re great for people who seek out products that are non-toxic and planet friendly, but they’re also a good fit for anyone looking for a high-performing bed in general. 

Who Are Organic Mattresses Ideal For?

Eco-Friendly Shoppers

  • Many manufacturers of organic mattresses demonstrate significant commitment to sustainable production practices and a reduced environmental footprint. A number of models carry reputable certifications to back up organic claims.

Those Sensitive to Chemicals

  • Organic production processes minimize or eliminate the use of potentially harmful chemicals. In addition, many organic materials, including latex, resist the buildup of dust and other allergens, making for a more hypoallergenic mattress.
  • Natural and organic materials are less likely to off-gas than those that are chemically-derived. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are strongest in foam, which is rarely found in organic mattresses.

Kids

  • Organic mattresses are a good place to start for parents seeking a kids’ mattress made with non-toxic materials. Organic sourcing ensures the mattress contains minimal harmful chemicals.
  • Since organic beds are also less likely to off-gas, they are an ideal option for children who are easily bothered by strong smells.

Hot Sleepers

  • Latex, wool, and cotton are the most common materials you’ll find in organic mattresses — and they’re all known for their excellent cooling properties, especially latex.
  • Wool excels at wicking moisture, making organic beds with wool layers ideal for people who sweat a lot at night.

Shoppers Who Prioritize Durability

  • Organic mattress manufacturers generally dedicate significant attention to detail in their mattress materials, including latex, which is well-known for its durability. As a result, organic mattresses usually last longer than other types of beds.

Who Are Organic Mattresses Less Than Ideal For?

Shoppers on a Budget

  • Organic mattresses are available at a wide range of prices, but they generally tend to cost more than beds made with non-organic materials. This is due to the high quality of materials and careful sourcing.

People With Latex Allergies

  • Most organic mattresses are all-latex or latex hybrid models, which means they contain at least one layer of latex. This makes them unsuitable for sleepers with latex allergies.

“The PlushBeds Signature Bliss isn’t the cheapest bed out there, but the cover alone is worth the price of admission. This bed is so cottony-soft, breathable, and springy to the touch – knowing that it’s built sustainably to last is just the icing on the cake.”

Logan Foley, Managing Editor, Health and Product

What Is an Organic Mattress?

Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to have a 100% organic mattress since components like coils, adhesives, and hardware can’t be manufactured using organic-certification criteria. The mattresses we highlight on this page are made primarily from organic and sustainable materials, but we also take a holistic look at the way a mattress is built to determine whether it should be classified as an organic mattress.

Mattress Materials That Are Organic

Only certain types of materials can be produced in ways that meet strict standards for organic production. These include natural latex, cotton, wool, and hemp.

Natural Latex

Natural latex is produced from the sap of rubber trees that is cured, molded, and baked. Latex can be found in the comfort layers and support cores of many organic mattresses.

Latex can be certified organic when the trees and production processes meet defined standards to minimize harmful chemical processing. Depending on the manufacturing process, there are two types of natural latex.

  • Dunlop latex: For Dunlop latex, sap is prepared in a mold and then baked, which solidifies its shape. While it bakes, some sediment sinks, which can make this latex less uniform throughout. In general, Dunlop latex is denser and less expensive to produce. 
  • Talalay latex: To make Talalay latex, the molded sap is rapidly frozen before it is baked. This prevents the movement of sediment and gives Talalay latex an airier texture with a bouncier and more contouring feel. 

Cotton

Cotton is produced from the fibers of the cotton plant. To be organic, cotton must be grown without harmful pesticides, and the processing of fibers into textile must minimize the use of harsh chemicals.

For many organic mattresses, cotton is used in the mattress cover because of the material’s softness and breathability. 

Wool

Wool is most often made from the fleece of sheep, which can be processed into a natural textile for use in mattresses, blankets, and clothing. To make organic wool, the sheep must be raised under certain conditions, and the fibers created and woven without harmful additives or other chemicals. 

Wool is frequently used to create a layer beneath the mattress cover because of its ability to act as a fire barrier, but it can also add softness and dissipate heat across the mattress surface. 

Hemp

Hemp is derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp fabrics can be classified as organic when the plants are cultivated according to those standards, and the fabric is produced without chemicals. 

Hemp is durable and resistant to mildew, so it may be included as one of the topmost layers in an organic mattress.

Other Sustainably Made Mattress Materials

Some mattress materials can’t be produced organically, but some manufacturers make an effort to make materials that are produced in sustainable ways. 

Synthetic Latex

Instead of being made from the sap from trees, synthetic latex is made using a chemical process. Producing synthetic latex generally involves petroleum-based products, which increases its environmental footprint. 

In some cases, synthetic latex may be mixed with natural latex to create what is known as blended latex. 

Memory Foam and Polyfoam

Chemicals, including petroleum-based chemicals, are needed to produce memory foam and other types of polyurethane foams. This prevents these materials from meeting organic standards. However, sometimes a company will replace a portion of the petrochemicals with plant-based oils to reduce the foam’s overall environmental impact.

Metal Coils

Making metal involves intensive processes that can’t be considered organic, but some mattress companies focus on producing metal components in ways that conserve electricity or minimize emissions so that the final product has a significantly reduced footprint. 

Upcycled Steel

Some companies try to enhance the sustainability of their products by reusing old metal products when creating new materials. Sometimes called upcycled steel, this material can be used to create a mattress support core that appeals to people who value recycling and finding new uses for discarded products.

Keep an Eye Out for Certifications

It’s common to see terms like green, sustainable, and organic across all types of consumer products, but sometimes manufacturers intentionally “greenwash” products just to make them seem eco-friendly. 

Certifications can provide useful information about mattress materials. To be certified, a company must prove that its materials meet specific standards set by a third-party organization. 

Some certifications prove that a material is organic, where others focus more on making sure a material doesn’t contain harmful chemicals. Look for the certifications that best align with your priorities, such as: 

  • Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS). The GOTS is used to certify materials like cotton and wool, while GOLS is used for natural latex.
  • OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certifies that a textile material does not contain any of more than 100 potentially harmful substances.
  • CertiPUR-US certification demonstrates that a foam does not contain specific substances that are known to pose health risks, such as heavy metals.
  • GREENGUARD certification shows that a mattress meets standards for a low level of chemicals (VOCs) emitted into the air.
  • eco-INSTITUT certified mattresses do not emit a range of toxic compounds and other substances that can worsen indoor air quality. 

Identifying companies that adopt eco-friendly practices is another way to avoid greenwashers. Look for companies that:

  • Reduce the amount of plastics in their packaging
  • Use shipping methods with a lower carbon footprint, such as compressing a mattress to fit in a smaller box
  • Arrange for returned mattresses to be donated instead of sent to a landfill
  • Make contributions to environmental causes for every mattress sold
  • Offset carbon emissions involved in mattress manufacturing or shipping

Other Ways You Can Be Eco-Friendly

Still on the fence about an organic mattress but want to do your part for the planet? There are a handful of other ways to be eco-conscious when revamping your sleep space.

Recycle or Donate Your Old Mattress

If you want to try to keep a bulky mattress out of a landfill, look into donating or recycling your old mattress. 

Some organizations and individuals accept mattress donations, but only if it is in good condition without any rips, stains, or other damage. Generally, if you wouldn’t give it to a friend or family member, you probably shouldn’t donate it to anyone else. 

When donating isn’t viable, you may be able to recycle your old mattress. One way to do this is to find an organization that can break down the mattress into parts that can be reused. Or if you’re into creative projects, you can do this on your own as well. 

Whether donating or recycling, look for local organizations that can accept your old mattress. Your local government or a mattress store may be able to refer you to places that accept or pick up old mattresses.

Invest in Organic Bedding

Beyond your mattress itself, you can outfit your bed with organic and eco-friendly pillows and pillowcases, sheets, or blankets. Though it may cost more to get organic bedding, it can be a worthwhile investment because of its durability and reduced use of harmful chemicals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a mattress be fully organic?

There is no way to make a mattress fully organic because some essential components cannot be made with 100% natural products. For example, small pieces of metal hardware can’t be certified organic. Other materials, including some adhesives and innerspring coils, also aren’t organic. 

Because no mattress is 100% organic, we apply the label of organic mattress to any bed that is made primarily of materials that show a commitment to eco-conscious production, including materials that are certified organic.

What is the best material for organic mattresses?

Natural latex is often considered the best material for organic mattresses because of its durability and its combination of pressure relief and bounciness. For most people, a latex mattress can support spinal alignment while maintaining a stable mattress surface. 

Other top materials include organic cotton and organic wool, which often are used to form the outer layers of an organic mattress.

How much does an organic mattress cost?

Organic mattresses usually cost upwards of $1,000 for a queen size. Higher-end and luxury models can cost several thousand dollars. Shopping online with a discount code or during sales events can help you get the best price for an organic mattress.

Are organic mattresses worth it?

For many people, organic mattresses are worth the price because of their high-quality, hypoallergenic, and eco-friendly materials. Because organic materials are produced without intensive use of chemicals, they may involve fewer risks to the environment and human health. 

In addition, many companies that make organic mattresses demonstrate a commitment to robust manufacturing that can translate into a more durable mattress.

What is the difference between an organic and a natural mattress?

All organic mattresses involve natural materials, but not all natural materials are organic. 

To obtain an organic certification, natural materials have to be produced according to detailed standards that generally prohibit intensive use of pesticides or other harsh chemicals. 

Nevertheless, some mattress marketing may use terms like organic, natural, and green interchangeably. Looking for mattress certifications, such as from the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) or Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), can provide verification that certain materials meet criteria for organic production.

How do you choose an organic mattress?

To choose an organic mattress, you should focus on the key factors that affect which mattresses best suit your overall needs. These factors include: 

– Your budget
– Your sleeping position and body weight
– Your firmness preference
– Your body’s support needs

With these considerations in mind, you can identify a few organic mattresses that are your top choices. From there, you can look closely at their materials and performance characteristics to decide which is most likely to enhance your nightly sleep.
