‘Fly by Night’, New England’s Leading Retailer in Natural Bedding, Debuts Greenest and Purest Mattress in the Nation


Eco-Guru and “Healthy Sleep” Expert Walt Bader Spoke in Northampton, MA


October 21, 2009 - Organic Mattresses, Inc. (OMI), the nation’s leading manufacturer of organic mattresses and bedding, announced on October 14th.that Northampton, MA’s largest furniture store and leader in natural bedding, Fly by Night, will offer OMI’s complete line of organic, all-natural latex mattresses.


To help debut the Organicpedic® by OMI collection, OMI’s CEO and President Walt Bader attended a special presentation at the store on Wednesday, Walt, a thought-leader in the eco-community and an eco-living go-to source, will share his philosophy and answer questions about healthy, pure sleep.  Walt is one of the U.S. leading advocates of healthier sleep and the author of Toxic Bedrooms: Your Guide to a Safe Night’s Sleep.

“It seemed only natural to chose Fly by Night to introduce our handcrafted pure mattresses in the New England area,” said Bader. “Fly by Night was one of the first retailers to offer natural bedding and remains truly committed to bringing consumers the most wholesome sleep alternatives for a healthy, toxin-free home.”


Introduced in 2008 and made by expert artisans at OMI’s Northern California Eco-Factory™—the first large-scale, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified eco-factory in North America, the OrganicPedic® by OMI line redefined quality-of-life and healthy sleep.  Now, Fly by Night is offering this collection to its consumers.


“In western New England, we’ve been the leaders in natural mattresses for over 12 years, so partnering with OMI was a perfect fit,” said Richard Zafft, co-owner of Fly by Night. “Eco-conscious living is not a fad for us, it is part of our DNA and the OMI line allows us to continue to offer the best in natural bedding solutions,” Zafft added.


The OrganicPedic® by OMI Collection is constructed with 100-percent Natural Rubber Latex, Certified Organic Cotton and Eco-wool™.  The collection includes a full range of comfort options, starting with the most plush, OrganicPedic® Terra, moving to the OrganicPedic® Lago, OrganicPedic® Flora, OrganicPedic® Midori and the newly debuted OrganicPedic® Sierra.  To accompany the latex mattress line, OMI also makes a fully upholstered wood-slat foundation made from cabinet-grade, kiln-dried wood with Forest Stewardship Council certified wood.  OrganicPedic® by OMI Collection is most noted for its luxurious comfort and tailored appearance.  The beds range in price from $1,595 to $4,395 in queen size.


OMI products are made and sourced in the USA and is a full-circle environmental company that proudly uses organic raw materials from American organic farmers and industries.  Doing so supports American farmers and prevents the risk of potential contamination from foreign-based impurities and potential import fumigants, as well as reduces the environmental impact and carbon footprint involved in global transportation.
