Eco-Safe Certificates and Memberships

CERTIFIED SAFE. When we develop and manufacture our line of CozyPureŽ organic mattresses and bedding, we hold a high criteria for organic fibers and eco-smart materials. But we also believe that just because something is "organic", it's no excuse for creating a product that does not offer quality or provides little comfort. Our mission is to design and manufacture an organic mattress that exceeds your wildest dreams and is held to the highest standards... to incorporate environmentally-friendly fabrics, materials and manufacturing procedures - alongside superior quality and exquisite comfort. We are proud to display the following logo certificates, memberships and recommendations which are affiliated with the CozyPureŽ organic mattress and bedding collection. For information about each logo, scroll down the page to read more.

"We've been in the organic comfort business since its inception, so we know what works best and the standards involved to meet the criteria of calling something organic.", says Cheryl Hahn, President and Founder of CozyPureŽ. "The green movement is becoming increasingly popular and many businesses are jumping on the bandwagon, making products with very minimal organic content, yet they still call it an organic product. The consumer really has to be careful because of the huge amount of misleading information in the marketplace today."


Do you have questions about these certificates, logos or memberships? We understand it can be very confusing with so much greenwashing taking place in the industry. In addition, there may be occasional competitors desperate in their attempt to discredit the eco-values we use as a standard to operate our business. Being "green" may not be important to them, but it's important to us. Here at Organic Comfort Zone, manufacturers of CozyPure, we're both "green" and "organic". And we're proud of it.

For twenty years we've been committed to eco-friendly organic green-living. Our authenticity runs deep and we'll be happy to discuss any of your questions or concerns. Give us a call Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm EST at 800.229.7571.

The euroLATEX ECO-Standard for latex foam cores has been developed by the European Latex Foam Manufacturers association in close co-operation with one of Europe's leading and most reputable scientific institutes, i.e. TFI (Deutsches Teppich-Forschungs Institut in Aachen, Germany). The ECO-Standard defines the maximum acceptable limits of substances considered harmful to health that could occur in latex foam cores. This is based upon scientific data and stringent limits from other standards. The substances that are tested for include: Heavy Metals, Nitrosamines, Pesticides, Solvents, VOCs - Volatile Organic Components. CozyPureŽ dunlop natural latex components have achieved the euroLatex ECO-Standard certification for our organic mattress collection.
The "LGA Tested" certificate confirms that a product was tested according to selected criteria (performance characteristics, safety characteristics, statutory requirements and other individual requirements) and also meets the currently accepted technical standards. Manufacturers who wish to obtain the product certificate "LGA tested" must have their product(s) assessed within the scope of a type test, according to the above-mentioned criteria. Annual factory and product inspections must carried out to maintain the validity of the certificate. An LGA-tested certificate assures the consumer that both high-quality and safety standards have been acquired for the product. CozyPureŽ dunlop natural latex components have been awarded the LGA-Tested certificate for our organic mattress collection.
The Oeko-Tex 100 Standard comprehensively addresses the Human Ecology component of textile products. It evaluates and screens for any harmful substances present within processed textiles intended to come into contact with consumers. A manufacturer whose product meets the requirements set by the standard is licensed to use the registered mark or label "Tested for Harmful Substances according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100" on his product. All of the CozyPureŽ natural latex components carry the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification for our organic mattresses.
Our organic wool is certified by Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO). Oregon Tilth is the most respected name in organic certification, and has been offering organic certification for over 30 years. In addition, our wool also meets all certifications of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Our soft organic wool is naturally resistant to open-flame, dust mites, molds and mildews. Temperature regulating and breathable, our wool is perfect for CozyPureŽ organic mattresses and organic bedding.
One of the highest textile standards currently available is GOTS-certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was formed as an initiative of leading standard organizations with the goal to unify existing standards which caused confusion with market participants and consumers. The aim of the standard is to define requirements to ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer. This standard for organic textiles covers the production, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, exportation, importation and distribution of all natural fibers. CozyPureŽ organic mattresses are made only with GOTS-certified organic cotton fabric ticking in our organic mattress collection.
Under the Organic Certification Program, TDA inspects and certifies organic farms as well as processors, distributors and retailers of organic food and fiber. To be certified, all must comply with organic growing and handling standards established by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). In exchange for this compliance, participants may use a marketing logo identifying their products as certified organic. The department also helps certified businesses market their products by promoting Texas-certified organic food and fiber. CozyPureŽ organic bedding accessories sources organic cotton certified through the Texas Dept of Agriculture.
Products with the FSC label carry a promise to consumers:
"By buying this product, you are supporting responsible forest management."

Behind this label, the FSC system is in place to verify the origin of the wood in the product. CozyPureŽ wood slat foundations are made with lumbar certified through the Forest Stewardship Council.
Virginia Green is a state-run program under the Commonwealth of Virginia to recognize and encourage businesses to incorporate environmentally-friendly practices. Designed primarily for the tourist trade such as hotels and restaurants, it is also open to businesses that compliment and/or enhance the program's mission and goals. Meeting the criteria, the Organic Comfort Zone is a partner member with Virginia Green. In addition, we are setup to efficiently provide CozyPureŽ organic mattresses and bedding to "green lodging" facilities across the state, allowing tourists to fully enjoy a "green room" experience.
The Organic Trade Association (OTA) is the membership-based business association for the organic industry in North America. OTA's mission is to promote and protect organic trade to benefit the environment, farmers, the public, and the economy. OTA envisions organic products becoming a significant part of everyday life, enhancing people's lives and the environment.
