Human Mattress Dominos

Posted on

Here’s a little video to bring some laughs to your Monday.


 850 people in New Orleans were knocked back onto mattresses in “human dominos” to break the world record for the number of people taking part.

Who says mattresses are just for sleeping?

How opposites attract…. The Duo

Posted on

My husband and I decided it was time to invest in a better night’s sleep, so we began the hunt for our perfect OrganicPedic® mattress. Seeing how I am less than 5 feet tall and my husband is well over 6 feet tall, it makes finding a mattress that we can agree on almost impossible.

After testing all the mattresses we arrived at a stalemate.  I melted into the Terra Plush while my husband loved the feel of the Flora Nouveau -complete opposites. What solution could we come to if we couldn’t agree which is the most comfortable for us?  The answer came in the form of the Duo.  The Duo was a lifesaver!

The Duo is a 10” mattress, with dual sleep zones to allow each sleeper to their own preferred comfort. Each side of the mattress has three individually sleeved layers of premium 100% natural rubber surrounded by certified organic cotton, and is available in many different comfort options.  Your OMI retailers can help you figure out which configuration is right for you.  Click HERE to find a retailer near you.  The sculpted surface of the top layer provides the ultimate in comfort and pressure point relief. This mattress has a removable cover and dual-zone internal layers that can be customized to accommodate each sleeper’s preference.   It is an everlasting mattress, meaning we can rearrange the layers and even change the firmness levels as our bodies change over time.

 After playing around with the layers, we were each able to create the ideal comfort level we wanted.  My side has a medium bottom layer and an extra soft middle layer while my husband chose a firm for both the bottom and middle layer.

Don’t Be Fooled By “Green” Disguises

Insist on a Purity Guarantee.

Click HERE to see our Purity Guarantee.

  • Misleading advertising has invaded our industry. How can you compare all the choices among companies that claim to have the “best” products at the “best” prices? Like the difference between fast food and fine dining, similar materials may be used, but the results can be dramatically different. Not all organic mattresses are created equal.

    Companies are making false claims to dupe consumers into buying. The organic mattress industry is experiencing increasing levels of fraud, with companies making outrageous claims online about their mattresses being “nontoxic,” “chemical-free,” “organic,” or “hypoallergenic.” Some of the claims aren’t even possible, and the rest can be verified only with third-party certification by USDA-approved certifiers using organic requirements such as GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).

    Without independent testing and certification, there really is no way to know what a mattress contains. Basing decisions solely on a company’s unverifiable claims is risky business. Just because it’s on the web doesn’t mean it’s true.

    Regardless of what you’ll see on some websites, it’s impossible for anything to be “truly chemical-free” or “100% nontoxic” – even the purest untouched wilderness landscape contains some chemical traces, and pure spring water can be toxic in high-enough doses.

    It is possible to have is extremely low levels of chemical offgassing, however. And that’s what we’ve proven with our certification from the prestigious GREENGUARD® Environmental Institute. We pass their most rigorous standard, for Children and Schools, passing tests for offgassing of hazardous chemicals that measure down to parts per billion at levels that are virtually nonexistent. Third parties guarantee that what we say is true.

    We’ve always made the purest mattress available. From day one, we’ve set the standard for organic purity. From the U.S.-grown, certified raw materials we use to our GOTS-certified organic Eco-Factory to the GREENGUARD certification for chemical offgassing of our finished products, our facility, materials, processes, and products are independently certified every step of the way. We even guarantee that we make the purest mattress available with our Purity Guarantee, which states that “If you can find a purer mattress, we’ll give you ours for FREE!”

    That proud tradition continues with the introduction of the world’s first certified organic mattresses. Our Classic Innerspring is certified organic as a finished product by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Have you met the Fusion?

Posted on

When customers ask us which mattresses we love, it’s hard to decide because there are so many wonderful choices.  So when the time came to buy a mattress for my 5-year-old daughter, I knew I had a tough decision to make.  I chose the Fusion, since it’s a great combination of both natural rubber and innersprings that can offer the support needed to accommodate my daughter for years to come.   The Fusion offers comfort at a wonderful price!

This 10”, two-sided mattress is the “best of both worlds,” combining a sturdy innerspring core with the supportive 100% natural rubber latex. The innerspring coil system is covered on both sides with certified organic cotton canvas and several layers of our sanitized certified organic cotton padding. The padding is covered with another layer of cotton canvas, then internally hand-tufted to keep the padding from shifting and to minimize body impressions. Finally, a luxurious 2” layer of 100%-natural rubber latex is added to the top and bottom surfaces, for increased cushioning, and it’s finished with our signature OrganicPedic® quilting.

Rave Reviews: Houston

Thank you Winnie Hamilton, a passionate Houston environmental health expert, for your wonderful review of the OMI Terra Mattress and your purchase and delivery experience with one of our OMI retailers, New Living in Houston, TX.

“I recently bought an OMI Terra mattress from New Living in Houston. I love it. The delivery guys not only came right on time (the beginning of a tiny two-hour window) and set up everything, but they also took (for a small fee) my old mattress to be recycled (i.e., not to a landfill).

But the mattress itself is amazing…incredibly comfortable and beautifully constructed. I mean, it’s actually beautiful to behold; and you can flip the pillowtop for variable plushness. I have hip problems and the wrong mattress literally destroys my life as the hip pain will wake me up every 30 minutes or so. So I need a mattress for pressure points.

A lot of people would recommend Tempur-pedic or another memory foam for me and even knowing how toxic they are I’d probably consider one if it gave me glorious sleep (even as a staunch environmentalist and health proponent, when you’re up all night…every night…in pain, your principles begin to slip), but the truth is that I tried a memory foam topper and it made me sick. I put it outside for nearly a month and still the outgassing and chemicals gave me bad headaches, tremors, bone-aching fatigue and a kind-of mental fog. Did my hips like it? Yes, a lot, but my brain and the rest of my body apparently didn’t.

Which is what led me to OMI and the Terra, which is I think probably the best organic mattress for people with hip or pressure point problems…although I’d be the first to say that finding the right mattress is intensely personal and everyone is different. I did ‘test drive’ the Terra at the Modern B&B in Houston and it felt pretty good, but one night–although better than a 10-minute ‘sleep’ in a store–isn’t sufficient.

The Terra has no smell, no toxic ‘ingredients’ and is strangely firm while also being one of the softer mattresses (people with pressure point issues generally need a mattress to support and give in the right places). In any event, I’m a fan…and New Living was super (I researched and debated for months and months.  They didn’t pressure me or badmouth other companies). Last, I really do like supporting Houston companies when possible. If we want more environmentally responsible companies here, we need to support them.
