Are natural and organic materials an important consideration when shopping for a mattress?

We think so. Natural and organic is a [wellness-driven] lifestyle choice to avoid conventional ingredients when and where possible, in an effort to reduce your daily exposure to chemicals. The Metta Bed mattress is made with natural latex, certified organic cotton and certified organic wool not only because of the excellent properties of each of these natural and organic materials that make them perfect for mattresses, but also to facilitate a choice to substitute natural and organic materials for conventional ones.
