Certifications, Sustainability, Environmental Commitment

As the First Organic Sleep Brand, We've Been Committed from the Start

In 2008, we manufactured the first Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic mattress in America.

Later, in 2013 we were the first to manufacture mattresses and bedding certified to the Global Organic Latex (GOLS) standard.

In 2015, our organic mattress was the first to achieve GREENGUARD Gold certification – UL’s highest standard for low emissions, VOCs and indoor pollutants.

In 2023 our mattresses were the first to achieve SCS' Indoor Advantage Gold Certification for low indoor emissions.

These standards include requirements for certified organic fibers, environmentally friendly production processes, and fair labor practices.

Certified Organic Cotton

Certified Organic Wool

The certified organic wool used in OMI mattresses and bedding products is sourced from New Zealand, where family and commercial farmers adhere to strict standards in order to assure the certified purity of their fibers. Organic pastures and grazing grounds, minimal processing and humane shearing practices (along with other requirements) contribute to the organic standard, to which our wool is certified. Certified organic, New Zealand wool is limited in production and fibre must be sourced years in advance.

Certified Organic Latex

Sustainably sourced from USDA certified plantations, organic botanical rubber sap is extracted from rubber trees. After extraction, the sap – also known as latex – undergoes a heat-treatment process to create a durable "core" suitable for mattresses, pillows and more.

Organic latex offers durability, comfort, and responsive support. Its natural cooling properties ensure a comfortable sleeping experience.
