What Does Organic Mean?
Many manufacturers claim to produce organic mattresses. But what makes a natural mattress truly organic? Englander offers the purest natural fiber mattress available, a truly Certified Organic mattress. Let's look at what that means.
"Organic" refers to the way agricultural products — food and fiber — are grown and processed. Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. Organic foods and fibers are minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation to maintain their integrity.*
Organic agriculture protects the health of people and the planet by reducing the overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with health consequences, from asthma to cancer.
"Certified Organic" means the item has been grown according to strict uniform standards that are verified by independent state or private organizations.
Certification includes inspections of farm fields and processing facilities, detailed record keeping, and periodic testing of soil and water to ensure that growers and handlers are meeting the standards which have been set.*
