Our third-party partners and certification programs help us source better, more ethical materials to build with. Get to know the important work and standards of each organization.
The Global Organic Latex Standard is a globally recognized standard for products made out of organically grown natural rubber latex. The certification indicates purity of material, fair labor practices, and eco-friendly processing. GOLS-certified latex must contain a minimum of 95% certified organic raw material. In our case, the 5% left over accounts for approved, essential processing agents and chemicals required for any manufacturer to make latex foam suitable for home furnishings.
Forest Stewardship Council certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. FSC® provides a foundation for all forest management standards globally, including the FSC® US National Standard.
OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.
UL GREENGUARD Gold Certification ensures that products meet low total VOC emission levels in the name of maintaining better indoor air quality.
CertiPUR-US® certified foams are made without ozone depleters, PBDEs, flame retardants, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals, formaldehyde, and phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and have low VOC emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).
