My 5-year old son has had a couple of different used mattresses in his life – first was his sister’s old crib mattress for a crib and toddler bed, then he got upgraded to a queen-sized mattress but it was the mattress we’ve owned for the past 8 1/2 years so it was overdue to get a new mattress. As he has been getting used mattresses in his short life, we needed a good, safe option for him to make sure he is getting the rest he needs and something that will be good for his body.
Luckily we found out about My Green Mattress. The thing that impresses me with My Green Mattress is that it satisfies parents like me who are worried about all of the toxins that companies put into their products. My Green Mattress provides a natural mattress. They use an all-natural wool and all mattresses are tested and safe for the most sensitive individual.
My Green Mattress was founded by Tim Masters. Tim is an experienced businessman, master craftsman, and devoted family man. Tim’s daughter, Emily, inspired him to expand his offerings to include all natural mattresses. Shortly after Emily was born, it was apparent that she suffered from eczema and allergies. Tim and his wife, Cindy, took Emily to see the best pediatric dermatologists, but also did their own research and found that all-natural products could help alleviate Emily’s symptoms.
Tim realized it was time to offer all-natural mattresses to his customers, and rushed to put one in his daughter’s crib. Emily is now sleeping on a twin-size, all-natural mattress handcrafted by her Dad. She is a happy, healthy little girl that loves to play with her three sisters, Rylee, Madelyn, Megan, and with her brother, Kyle.
When you order a My Green Mattress, you have a few options.
We are using the Pure Echo for my son. It was shipped free by FedEx and arrived on my doorstep in a roll packed in heavy duty plastic wrap and cardboard. We carried it up to the room where we were going to place it (we needed 2 people). Tearing at the seam, we were able to undo the plastic and unroll the mattress! No scissors or razors required. It unrolled easily and we were able to place it correctly onto the bed frame.
The My Green Mattress we have does not have a smell. It has about a 7 out of 10 as far as firmness goes (10 being most firm) and my son has slept very well on it. I even enjoy going into his room and resting on the mattress. It feels great! I really enjoy the comfort of knowing that the mattress is natural without any chemical flame retardants as they use quilting natural wool.
