					                                A message from Barry A. Cik,
                                Founder, Environmental Engineer, and
                                Grandfather:

                                All of us at Naturepedic are pleased
                                to present our latest collection of
                                children’s mattresses and bedding.
                                Our comprehensive line includes a few
                                new items we are very excited about,
                                including our new line of lightweight crib
                                mattresses.

                                 Naturepedic was created to provide parents
with a safe and healthy alternative to products containing questionable
chemicals and allergens. It all started when my first grandchild was born.
I was unwilling to have him sleep on a mattress containing chemicals I was
uncomfortable with. Along with my two sons, we set out to design the first
and only organic waterproof crib mattress.

Naturepedic specializes exclusively in the design and manufacture of safe,
organic children’s mattresses and bedding. Certified by GREENGUARD®,
the strictest independent third party testing laboratory for chemical off-
gassing, our mattresses feature organic cotton and a 100% waterproof
food-grade polyethylene surface.

Today, more babies sleep on Naturepedic than any other organic brand.

                                                    1
                           What is an “organic mattress”?
                           You’ve heard of organic vegetables and
                           organic milk, but what on earth is an
                           organic mattress?

                           Organic mattresses are made with
                           organic and non-toxic materials instead
                           of chemically questionable materials.

                           In particular, all fiber and fabrics (with
                           limited exceptions) must be made from
                           certified materials that meet the National
                           Organic Program (NOP) standard and are
                           processed in accordance with the Global
                           Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). All
other components (such as innersprings, fire protection, etc.) must
meet stringent non-toxic standards.


Are mattresses labeled “eco” or “green” just as good?
No. “Eco” and “green” are not regulated terms and can be
misleading. For example, “plant derived” or “soybean” foam used
in many “eco” mattress models are not really “made of soybeans”
and are typically 80% petroleum/chemical based. Many of these
“eco” materials may sound good, but they are not really “natural.”
At Naturepedic, we have an uncompromising dedication to removing
harmful chemicals and replacing them with certified organic and
other healthy materials.

      Baby Crib and Toddler Mattress




                     The Organic Cotton Deluxe
                     represents a more luxurious
                     mattress for toddlers and is
                     well suited for toddler beds
                     and daybeds.

                     The luxurious organic cotton
                     cover provides a softer more
                     “grown-up” feel that is still
                     firm enough for babies, but
                     especially comfortable for
                     older children.

                     Please note this mattress is
                     not waterproof. For dust mite
                     protection, a dust mite barrier
                     encasing would be required.

         What Goes Into a
                      Certified Organic Cotton
                      Organic cotton is the purest form of cotton, grown without
                      synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or GMO’s (genetically
                      modified organisms).
                      In mattresses, organic cotton is a healthier alternative to
                      foams (which are chemically treated) and latex (which is
allergy-prone). Naturepedic uses only U.S. grown and certified organic cotton.


                          Polyethylene (Food Contact Standard)
                          Polyethylene is an environmentally friendly plastic that
                          is used throughout the food packaging industry for its
                          purity and non-toxic properties. It has a very simple
                          molecular structure that does not require chemical
                          additives (as opposed to vinyl/PVC) and is recommended
by environmental groups. Naturepedic uses only polyethylene formulated to
meet food contact standards, creating the finest non-toxic waterproof mattress
cover available. Polyethylene is easy-to-clean and highly stain resistant while
providing an excellent barrier to dust mites and other allergens.


                Heavy Duty Support
                Naturepedic uses the highest quality innersprings available.
                Steel springs provide optimum support without toxicity
                or allergy concerns.

                                    WaveSupport™

New to the Naturepedic linup is our WaveSupport™ system - providing half the
weight of a regular innerspring mattress. Made from a network of closed cell
air pockets positioned in a wave configuration (patent pending), this support
structure provides firm long lasting support without the added weight. Made
from pure food-grade polyethylene.

Naturepedic Mattress?
                     Fire Protection
                     Nearly all mattresses today are made with polyurethane
                     foam or latex as the primary filling material. Due to their
                     high flammability, these materials are treated or wrapped
                     with industrial fire retardant chemicals. Some of these
                     chemicals introduce health and toxicity concerns.
At Naturepedic, we take a different approach. Organic cotton is a far superior
filling material and is significantly less flammable to begin with.
Our exclusive fire protection system is naturally derived. It is based on the
unique fire retardant properties of baking soda and hydrated silica bonded to
cellulose fiber. Baking soda is a non-toxic substance with excellent fire retardant
properties and can be found as a naturally occurring compound. Silica is a
natural mineral that comprises about 60% of the earth’s crust.
Clay, rocks, sand, etc. are all made primarily of silica. It is a major constituent of
human tissue, bones, teeth, etc., and is even available at health food stores as a
food supplement. It is also a primary ingredient in natural toothpaste.
Specifically, Naturepedic does not use any of the following fire retardants:
NO PBDEs
NO Brominated Chemicals
NO Chlorinated Chemicals
NO Fluorinated Chemicals
NO Antimony
NO PAN (polyacrylonitrile)
NO Modacrylic
NO Boric Acid
NO Crystaline or Respirable Silica
NO Allergenic Materials (i.e. Wool)

       GREENGUARD ® Certified




The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry-independent, non-
profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Program. As
an ANSI Authorized Standards Developer, GEI establishes acceptable indoor air
standards for indoor products, environments, and buildings. GEI’s mission is to
improve public health and quality of life through programs that improve indoor air.
A GEI Advisory Board consisting of independent volunteers, renowned experts in
the areas of indoor air quality, public and environmental health, building design
and construction, and public policy, provides guidance and leadership to GEI.

The GREENGUARD Certification ProgramSM is an industry-independent, third-
party testing program for low-emitting products and materials. In 2005, GEI
announced the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard, providing an even
more rigorous product emissions criteria.

GREENGUARD, the most trusted independent third party certification program
for low product emissions has tested and certified Naturepedic mattreses for the
prestigious GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED® status.

In addition, Naturepedic organic baby and children’s mattresses pass the
GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM test. This gives parents confidence and
ensures the public that the Naturepedic line of organic baby crib and children’s
mattresses will not emit harmful chemicals or pollute the air quality around the
baby’s crib or child’s sleeping environment.

         Recommended by
    Healthy Child Healthy World




Scientific and medical literature increasingly demonstrates that many of the
chemicals commonly found in crib mattresses should be avoided.

Nearly all baby mattresses today contain polyurethane foam, vinyl (PVC),
phthalates, chemical fire retardants/barriers, and an extensive list of added
industrial chemicals. Some of these chemicals have been shown to leach into the
surrounding air.

Healthy Child Healthy World (HCHW), formerly the Children’s Health Environmental
Coalition (CHEC), a nationally recognized non-profit children’s advocacy
coalition, is dedicated to educating the public regarding environmental toxins
that can affect children’s health. A lack of clear health information necessitates a
precautionary approach to chemical exposure and toxins.

HCHW encourages millions of people to join the fight for a healthier world
for our children. As part of this effort, HCHW recommends Naturepedic No-
Compromise Baby Mattresses as an excellent way for parents to help reduce
their children’s exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.

Naturepedic, the most trusted brand in organic baby and children’s mattresses,
uses chemically and environmentally preferable materials in its products. As such,
Healthy Child Healthy World (HCHW) exclusively recommends Naturepedic in
the category of baby and children’s mattresses and bedding.

Former Chief of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine

“We need to place more emphasis on protecting our children from the subtle but potentially
serious consequences of exposure to toxic chemicals. Naturepedic avoids the use of vinyl
and foam, both of which may contain potentially toxic chemicals such as phthalates and
PBDE flame retardants. I recommend using a non-toxic and more natural mattress for all
infants and toddlers, and I can recommend Naturepedic as an excellent product.”

“This mattress is organic and non-toxic. It meets the needs of parents who are
concerned about exposing their infants to multiple chemicals and other hazardous
toxins. The waterproof casing is especially helpful, as it easily wipes clean and
protects the inner core of the mattress. This is a nice item.”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for a great baby mattress. The questions I
had were answered promptly and eased my concerns before purchasing a product
that I couldn’t see in person. I’m so glad I found your website to give me a firm well
made mattress for our soon to be born baby. We’re letting our 2 year old use it for her
toddler bed until our next baby is born. She seems to love it so far! It’s amazing the
difference.”
