Naturepedic Reaches Out to Furniture and Mattress Retailers at High Point Market


Offers Retailers Simple, Fully Certified "Organic" Kids' Bed Program


March 16, 2011 - Naturepedic, the company who has led the way in the development of fully certified, truly organic mattresses for cribs and kids' beds is showing in Room M413, 4th Floor IHFC, right off the elevators.



Barry A. Cik, founder of the company, invites furniture, department store and mattress store buyers to review the company's new program, featuring crib, twin, full and queen size children's organic mattresses.  ďThis kidsí mattress program has been designed to offer healthier organic products for children.Ē  Cik, a twenty-five year veteran Board Certified Environmental Engineer, points out that today's mothers are very concerned about the health and safety of their children and they are looking for products that are non-allergenic, non-toxic, environmentally safe and void of harmful chemicals.  Naturepedic has attained the highest level of organic certification in the industry in order to address the needs of children and their parents' concerns.


An easy program for retailers and their sales associates

Barry Cik states that this program was designed specifically for furniture and mattress stores looking to offer healthier children's beds. A store can start with a placement of one or two floor models, or they can receive a full three-bed gallery.  These mattresses can also be displayed in children's beds or bunk beds that the store may already be selling.  In addition, Naturepedic offers crib and infant mattresses as well as accessories for all their mattresses (including organic waterproof mattress pads, quilted toppers, pillows, sheets, changing table pads, and more).


Powerful SAFE AND HEALTHY retail marketing program

Naturepedic's beds are the first to feature LEVEL 3 of the Specialty Sleep Associationís  (SSA) Environmental and Safety Program "truth in green marketing" tags.  Not only does Naturepedic feature such certifications as GREENGUARD and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), but the company is a pioneer with the LEVEL 3 of the SSA program.  The SSAís program allows retailers and their customers to understand the contents of a mattress and to assure concerned consumers about safety and health issues.


In 2009, the U.S. government banned several chemicals from the manufacturing process used to make baby mattresses.  But even under new government regulations, those mattresses do not meet Naturepedicís rigorous crib and kidsí mattress standards.  Thatís why leading childrenís and chemical-free advocacy groups recommend Naturepedic Ė including Healthy Child Healthy World, Washington Toxics Coalition, American Sustainable Business Council, and more.


Naturepedic mattresses are made with certified organic cotton fabric, certified organic cotton filling, and optional waterproofing so pure that it meets food-contact standards.  Retailers need to carry Naturepedic products because itís the right thing to do for kids Ė and itís a simple, easy, highly profitable sell.
