If you’re looking into My Green Mattress, or “green” mattresses that are made from renewable materials, this company may have an option for you.

Here are the pros and cons of the My Green Mattress line, which includes a kids bed, crib mattress, and one latex-free mattress.

My Green Mattress pros

My Green Mattress cons

  • Only sold online; can’t try in stores.
  • Free exchanges and returns, but you’re required to donate your mattress to charity and provide proof of the donation. You also have to haul the mattress to the donation site at your own expense.
  • More expensive than other popular online mattress options.
  • Since it’s made to order, your mattress takes 4 to 7 weeks to arrive. If you’re eager to get your bod on your new bed, this may be too long for you.

Except for the crib option for tiny babes, all prices shown are for queen mattresses.

When considering your purchase, keep in mind that twins and fulls will be cheaper, while kings will be more expensive.

Natural Escape

  • Price: $1,399
  • Mattress type: Innerspring
  • Mattress height: 11 inches

The most luxurious of My Green Mattress’ line (and the highest priced), the Natural Escape features 3 inches of GOLS-certified breathable organic latex on top of an innerspring base.

The coil-spring layer is designed to give lumbar support and limit motion transfer with individual pocketed springs (so sleepers won’t disturb each other when shifting positions). This is a great option if you’re looking for a supportive, comfortable mattress with medium firmness.

Some reviews mention an unpleasant “barn smell,” which fades but can linger for weeks. Several people complained that the smell was overwhelming despite airing it out in the sun.

Hope Latex

  • Price: $1,299 (queen)
  • Mattress type: Latex
  • Mattress height: 8 inches

Made of 3 layers of GOLS-certified Dunlop latex, the Hope Latex is a fabulous option for those looking to avoid traditional spring mattresses.

The GOTS-certified cotton and wool cover make the bed soft to touch, while also acting as a natural flame retardant. The latex is sourced from rubber trees — a renewable resource — making this an eco-friendly, sustainable option.

A few reviewers mentioned a latex or rubber smell that fades in a couple of weeks. Most reviewers didn’t notice a smell. Bear this in mind if you’re scent-sensitive.

Pure Echo

  • Price: $1,049
  • Mattress type: Innerspring
  • Mattress height: 9.25 inches

A classic innerspring mattress, the Pure Echo has GOTS-certified cotton batting designed to provide comfort and relieve pressure. Free of latex, this is a stellar option for folks allergic or sensitive to latex. The mattress is button tufted, meaning it’s also free of any adhesives. A firm mattress, the Pure Echo is recommended for back and stomach sleepers.

Though it has overwhelmingly positive reviews, several customers found the Pure Echo to be too firm. A mattress topper can soften the firmness.

Kiwi

  • Price: $1,099
  • Mattress type: Hybrid
  • Mattress height: 10.75 inches

At over 10 inches thick, this mattress is designed for growing children.

For an extra $125, you can get a two-sided mattress that’s upholstered on both sides so you can flip and use either side. If flipped regularly, this may help the mattress wear evenly and potentially last longer.

Made with materials like GOTS-certified cotton, wool, and latex, this mattress is free of chemical flame retardants. And no downsides mentioned in customer reviews — the lowest rating was 4 out of 5 stars.

Emily Crib Mattress

  • Price: $289
  • Mattress type: Innerspring
  • Mattress height: 6 inches

Named after the daughter of the company’s founder, this certified organic crib mattress features a supportive layer of GOLS-certified cotton coir (organic coconut fibers bound together with organic latex). The mattress materials are free of chemical flame retardants and polyurethane foam.

Upholstered on both sides, the company suggests flipping the mattress regularly to ensure even wear. Not a single negative review was found on My Green Mattress.
