What’s in This Mattress? Do Consumers Really Care About the Materials, Construction and Chemicals Inside Their New Mattresses and Bedding?

by Dale T. Read @ Blog - bedfax

What do consumers really care about when they are buying a new mattress? Every piece of meaningful research on consumer preferences from Furniture Today and other sources confirms that consumers are mostly interested in comfort, support and performance leading to a really “good night’s sleep”, as well as price or real perceived value when purchasing a new mattress.  

So the questions have arisen: do consumers really care about what is in their mattress, just what are the materials used, which chemicals are part of the mattress and what goes into that mattress or how is it constructed?

Recent reports from ISPA and Furniture Today indicate that nearly 20 million mattress units are sold in the United States every year, and along with that another 17 to 19 million foundations or box springs are sold. Total sales for these reached 38 million-plus units and$14.2 billion in retail mattress/ bedding sales.

According to Furniture Today’s July 27th “Making the SLEEP Connection” column written by David Perry, consumer research “…found that one in three consumers –31% - said that the main construction materials in a mattress are important to them when they buy a mattress for themselves or spouse or partner..”  That 31% of $14.2 equals $4.58 billion in sales that are affected by consumers wanting to know what is inside a mattress. Perry wrote,  “Any good retail sales associate should be able to talk knowledgeably about how the materials inside the bed will yield a good night of sleep.”

In October 2015 Colonial LLC, a leader in mattress showroom top-of-bed displays and POP materials released a study that stated “ seven in ten respondents said that it is ‘very important’ to them too know how a mattress in constructed.”  This research makes an even more compelling case that$9.94 billion in mattress sales could be affected by a retail sales associate knowing what is in the mattress that the RSA is selling to the consumer.

Believing there is ample evidence that a significant percentage of consumers really do want to know “What’s in Your Mattress”, while also keeping it simple, and getting to the point, The Specialty Sleep Association (SSA) is now re-introducing a new, simplified “consumer disclosure contents label program called BEDFAX. It is a simple, third-party, voluntary contents verification program supported by extensive written documentation, testing and certifications declaring the percentage by weight or volume of the materials, chemicals, and contents in the mattress cover, the quilt or comfort layer and the core of the mattress. BEDFAX is a contents transparency program, not a “green” marketing program, although one can make “green” claims by submitting current, active certifications and testing reports from valid third parties according to guidelines of the Federal Trade Commission for meeting substantiation requirements.

The simple, easy-to-read BEDFAX contents labels will make it easy for both sales people and consumers wanting to know exactly “What is in Your Mattress.”

The Power of Napping

As most of us know, it’s very difficult to fit in the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night. However, there is a great substitute for this that a lot of us tend to overlook: napping! This little nugget of luxury is something that gets thrown by the wayside upon adulthood. It’s unfortunate since adequate sleep provides so many benefits and even contributes to longevity. Research by NASA shows that naps escalate performance. Their pilots who took 25 minute naps were twice as focused and more attentive than those who didn’t. NASA also found that taking naps enhanced reaction times...

FTC says company didn’t have support for “organic” mattress claims

FTC says company didn’t have support for “organic” mattress claims

by FTC @ Blog - bedfax

By: Lesley Fair at the FTC      Click here to see this article on the FTC Website.

Dads and Moms want what’s best for their babies, so some companies feature adjectives like “organic” or “natural” in ads for infant gear. Those are among the terms Illinois-based Moonlight Slumber used to sell its baby mattresses online and at some of the nation’s biggest retailers. But according to an FTC complaint, when it came to backing its mattress claims with proper support, the company was asleep at the switch.

In ads for its Starlight Simplicity and Little Star mattresses, Moonlight Slumber described the products as “organic” and “a safe, organic alternative to traditional crib mattresses” with a “Natural Latex Core.” The company said other mattresses it sold were made from “BabySafe Natural Materials,” including “eco-friendly plant-based foam.” The company also claimed that testing proved “there are no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds, commonly known as ‘Off Gassing’).”

And Moonlight Slumber suggested that parents didn’t have to just take their word for it. According to a logo the company prominently displayed, its products had the “Green Safety Shield.”

Organic and natural? Won’t emit VOCs? Proven by testing? Bearing the Green Safety Shield? On a parent’s shopping list, that’s a check, check, check, and check. But according to the FTC, those claims were deceptive, deceptive, deceptive, and deceptive.

The complaint alleges that a substantial majority of the content in the Starlight Simplicity and Little Star mattresses wasn’t organic. The cores and fire barriers contained no organic content at all and the cotton cover was 70% non-organic. In fact, according to the FTC, the only purely organic content was the mattress ribbon, a minor decorative component.

What’s more, most of the company’s mattress cores were made wholly or primarily of polyurethane, a non-natural material made from isocyanates and polyols derived from petrochemicals. Despite Moonlight Slumber’s ad claims, the latex core for the Little Star mattress was synthetic, not natural – and six other mattress styles contained little or no plant-based material. The FTC also alleges that the company didn’t have sound science to support the claim that its products didn’t emit substances like VOCs. What about Moonlight Slumber’s representation that it had testing to back up that promise? False, says the FTC.

And who bestowed the “Green Safety Shield” on Moonlight Slumber? The company awarded the seal to itself.

The proposed order prohibits a host of misrepresentations about whether a product is organic, natural, plant-based, emissions-free, or VOC-free. It also requires appropriate proof for testing claims and for representations about other environmental and health benefits. In addition, the order nixes misleading certifications and requires the company to clearly disclose when it has a material connection to an endorser. The FTC is accepting public comments about the proposed settlement until October 30, 2017.

For companies that want to rest easy about their substantiation obligations, the case offers two take-aways.

Consumers won’t take deceptive organic claims lying down. Advertisers must substantiate their organic claims. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program develops standards for organically-produced agricultural products. For other product categories not covered by the National Organic Program, long-standing FTC substantiation principles apply. Advertisers must have a reasonable basis for claiming that their non-agricultural products – for example, mattresses – are “organic.” FTC and USDA staff, along with various stakeholders, discussed these issues at an October 2016 roundtable on consumer perception of organic claims.

It’s risky to sign, seal, and deliver your own seals. Duck-lipped mirror shots used to be our least favorite form of selfie, but we have a new cellar dweller: seals or certifications that companies award themselves without clearly explaining that to consumers. As the FTC’s Green Guides and dozens of law enforcement actions establish, misleading certifications raise particular concerns when they appear to give an independent authoritative A-OK for health, safety, or environmental claims that consumers can’t evaluate for themselves. If your ad features seals or certifications of your own designation, make that abundantly clear to consumers.

Get Some Sleep: Naturally

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

Everyone needs to get a good night of sleep. This is no surprise to anyone I’m willing to bet considering a lack of a good, healthy night of rest is easily to recognize, and when the opposite occurs, easy to bemoan. Getting up after a restless battle of tossing and turning can have the same effect as operating in a nearly intoxicated-like state. Sleep deprivation is often caused by stress from your job, a long day of work, or just your mind struggling to keep the tasks of tomorrow straight in your head. Sleep aids are nothing new and we’ve...

Environmental Toxins May Contribute to Aging

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

Chronological age is determined by birth date. Biological age is established by physiological and molecular cells within the individual. The latter is influenced by the exposure of damaging substances in the environment, such as chemicals, cigarette smoke, or even stress (gerontogens). Aging occurs when the body goes through a biological mechanism called senescence. During this process, healthy cells become impaired and they lose their ability to divide. Over a period of time, these impaired cells begin to compile, using resources and releasing hormones with inflammatory characteristics. This majorly contributes to aging and age related diseases. Someday, scientists hope that blood...

FTC to mattress companies: Don't pad your green claims

by FTC @ Blog - bedfax

If you or your clients make environmental marketing claims, don’t sleep on three actions the FTC just announcedagainst companies that sell mattresses.  What's more, the pleadings in one case offer insights into a course of conduct advertisers should avoid in the use of seals and certifications.

According the FTC’s lawsuit against Relief-Mart, based in Westlake Village, California, the company advertised its Biogreen memory foam mattresses without having its claims tucked in.  Relief-Mart, which markets through its tempflow.com site, said the products don’t contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), have no VOC off-gassing, and don’t have the smell consumers often associate with memory foam.  One aroma the FTC detected from Relief-Mart’s representations was the whiff of deception, which is why the complaint charged that the company didn’t have a reasonable basis for its claims.

A second lawsuit challenged statements in ads by Quebec-based Essentia Natural Memory Foam Company, which has retail stores in six U.S. cities.  The FTC charged that Essentia didn’t have appropriate proof to back up claims that its mattresses are VOC-free, have “[n]o chemical off-gassing or odor,” and — unlike other memory foam mattresses that “can emit up to 61 chemicals” — are “free from all those harmful VOCs.”  In addition, the complaint disputes Essentia’s claims that its memory foam mattresses are chemical-free, contain no formaldehyde, don’t emit chemical fumes and odors, and are “made with 100% natural materials.”  The FTC also challenged the truthfulness of Essentia’s assurance that testing confirms that its memory foam mattresses are VOC- and formaldehyde-free.

(An aside about “smell” claims:  The FTC doesn’t normally challenge subjective representations like smell.  What’s different here is that consumers acting reasonably under the circumstances are likely to interpret a claim that a mattress doesn’t have that memory foam smell to mean that it’s VOC-free.)

In a third action, the FTC alleged that San Diego-based Ecobaby Organics short-sheeted the truth in how it marketed its latex mattresses.  Through its purerest.com site, Ecobaby touted its mattresses as “chemical free,” with no formaldehyde, toluene, benzene, VOCs, or toxic substances.  The company also said its products contained fewer contaminants and chemicals than competitors’ memory foam or latex mattresses and that it had sound testing to back up its chemical-, formaldehyde-, and VOC-free claims.  Not so, said the FTC, which alleged that Ecobaby didn’t have appropriate testing to support those statements.

What about the certification angle?  Ecobaby’s promotional materials prominently featured the seal of NAOMI, the National Association of Organic Mattress Industry.  The FTC says the ads conveyed to consumers that NAOMI was an independent certifying organization with appropriate expertise that grants its seal based on objective standards.  The truth, says the FTC, is that NAOMI is run by Ecobaby and is really an alter ego of the company.  Thus, the company awarded its own seal to its own products without applying objective standards, a practice that (surprise, surprise) ran afoul of Section 5.

Proposed settlements with the three companies should put misleading representations to rest.  You’ll want to read the orders for the details, but savvy green marketers will pay close attention to provisions addressing VOC-free claims.  The orders prohibit the companies from making VOC-free claims unless the emission level is zero micrograms per cubic meter or if they have competent and reliable scientific evidence that the products in question contain no more than a “trace level” of VOCs.  The “trace level” standard comes from the FTC's Green Guides’guidance on making “free of” claims.  As the Green Guides explain, companies meet the “trace level” test if:

  1. The level of the ingredient is less than what would be found as a background level in the ambient air;
  2. The presence of the ingredient doesn’t cause the harm consumers typically associate with it, including harm to the environment or health; and
  3. The ingredient hasn’t been intentionally added to the product.

The orders also bar a host of unsubstantiated environmental benefit or attribute claims and prohibit certain health claims without appropriate scientific evidence. 

In addition, the settlements address particular forms of deception challenged in the individual complaints.  For example, the Essentia and Ecobaby settlements ban claims that products covered by the orders are “free of chemicals” and prohibits misrepresentations about tests, studies, or research.  The Essentia order bars unsubstantiated “natural” claims.   And under the Ecobaby settlement, the company can’t make “non-toxic” claims unless it has scientific evidence to back them up.  Addressing the deceptve use of the NAOMI seal, the Ecobaby order puts a provision in place to end misrepresentations about certifications.

You have until August 26, 2013, to file an online comment about the proposed Relief-MartEssentia, or Ecobaby Organics settlements.  Looking for more resources about keeping your green claims compliant?  Bookmark the BCP Business Center's Environmental Marketing page.  Today’s cases also offer a timely reminder to take a fresh look at the FTC’s revised Green Guides if you haven’t reviewed them recently.

FTC Approves Four Final Orders Barring Companies from Making False All-Natural Claims

by FTC @ Blog - bedfax

Following a public comment period, the Federal Trade Commission has approved four final consent orders against companies that allegedly misrepresented their personal care products as “All-Natural” or “100% Natural,” despite the fact that they contain man-made ingredients.

According to the FTC’s complaints, announced in April 2016, the companies, Trans-India Products, Inc., doing business as ShiKaiErickson Marketing Group, doing business as Rocky Mountain SunscreenABS Consumer Products, LLC, doing business as EDEN BodyWorks, and Beyond Coastal made deceptive all-natural claims in online ads for a variety of products, ranging from sunscreen to shampoo.

Under the final settlements, each of the companies is barred from making similar misrepresentations in the future and must have competent and reliable evidence to substantiate any ingredient-related, environmental, or health claims it makes.

The Commission vote approving the final orders and responses to the public commenters was 3-0. (The staff contact is Robert Frisby, Bureau of Consumer Protection, 202-326-2098.)

How to assemble your Spindle Mattress at home.

by admin @ spindle

All mattresses will eventually soften, sag or get an imprint from where you've been sleeping. The good news is that latex does it at half the rate of a conventional material. The normal compression in a traditional mattress is an inch and a half to two inches. Your Spindle is warrantied against impressions greater than 3/4". That's a "yuge" difference.

Addressing organic claims on non-agricultural products

by OTA - Organic Trade Association @ Blog - bedfax

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released a study on consumer perceptions of organic claims,  and announced it will host a roundtable discussion with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C., on October 20 to help the two agencies better understand how consumers perceive “organic” claims made on non-agricultural products such as personal care products and textiles. The roundtable is open to the public, and FTC welcomes written comments, including further evidence of consumer perceptions. The comment period for written comments will remain open until December 1. This action comes as a result of the Organic Trade Association (OTA) participating in numerous meetings with FTC and the National Organic Program, and submitting extensive comments urging FTC to exercise its consumer protection authority and take action against the fraudulent and misleading use of the term “organic” on products that fall outside of NOP’s scope of authority (such as shampoo, t-shirts, mattresses, household cleaners). OTA will attend the roundtable event and submit comments. OTA is in the initial stages of reviewing the study, and will convene a task force to help shape comments on how to best address consumer deception and education. Interested in learning more, or in participating in a task force? Contact Gwendolyn Wyard, OTA’s Vice President of Regulatory and Technical Affairs.

SSA Has Revised Its Vision, Mission, Elected New Officers and Board Members, Two New Websites, the BEDFAX® Program and Created a New SSA Logo

by Dale T. Read @ Blog - bedfax

After two years of working-committee meetings and SSA Board of Directors meetings, the Specialty Sleep Association (SSA) has completed the non-profit industry group’s updated vision and mission statements; elected new officers; created an expanded board; introduced two new websites (www.sleepinformation.org and www.bedfax.org ); introduced the final, restructured BEDFAX® consumer disclosure contents label program and promulgated the new SSA logofor membership and marketing purposes at the Las Vegas Summer 2016 market.
Starting with a meeting held in the snow in Boulder, Colorado in the early spring of 2014, over a period of two years the SSA redefined its overall vision for the future and its mission (see below) , and then set about restructuring the governing board, the association’s websites, its consumer transparency labeling program and concluded this fundamental phase of the change process with the introduction of the new clean, crisp and modern SSA logo (see attached). “It took us two plus years,” says SSA President Dale T. Read; “however, this focused non-profit industry association has emerged with new board members and officers, new vitality and energy, new websites, a renewed message and a new look and feel with both the BEDFAX® program and the SSA logo.”

MISSION STATEMENT
“To serve sleep innovators, both manufacturing and retail, by promoting members, product transparency, and education.”

Vision
SSA’s vision is to be a trusted authority for consumers on product transparency and education for specialty sleep products.

“Our re-focus with the updated mission statement,” says Read, “puts us back center stage in the business of advocacy for innovators and emerging companies in the specialty sleep field. If you look at our SSA Showroom in Las Vegas, where we have over 30 manufacturing exhibitors, you will see innovative, cutting edge products offered by emerging companies. These innovators offer the industry new types of foams, suspension systems, biometric monitoring and measurement systems, organic materials, new designs, accessories for heating and cooling,  power and electronics, as well as top-of-bed, under-the-bed andfashion accessories to name a few of the product categories,” says Read. “For over two decades we have been an advocate or a host for emerging specialty sleep companies offering new products to the retail marketplace. Many of the larger, well known mattress/ bedding exhibitors in Las Vegas today started out with the SSA over 20 years ago on our show floors in Orlando, San Francisco or Las Vegas. Both returning and new companies approach us for every market, and we are pleased to serve the vital role as an advocate and a sponsor for these emerging companies,” states Read.

“We should also note because of this vital service, which we offer specialty sleep and accessories manufacturers and the attending retailers of all types and sizes, we have sold out our show space for the past several years.  Since the time following the Recession in 2010, we at the SSA have experienced a strong rejuvenation, and financial solvency that allows us to carry out our multi-faceted mission focused around advocacy and retailer education of innovative sleep products.”

News Leadership and the Next Horizon  

This past summer in Las Vegas, the SSA elected three new officers to govern the board and added two new members to the SSA board.  Angela Owen, CEO and Owner of Colorado based Suite Sleep was elected to serve as Chairman of the Specialty Sleep Association. Owen, who has more than fifteen years of experience in the sustainable bedding industry, sees her leadership as a bold challenge to try to change the industry’s “smoke and mirrors” sales tactics to clear and transparent product labeling. “As the new chairperson of the SSA, I see two distinct challenges ahead,” states Owen, “First, we need to redirect our education and appeal for the BEDFAX®  transparency labeling program to retailers and consumers, as opposed to just manufacturers. Secondly, we are going to explore added-value for SSA members to encourage growth and expansion of our membership including specialty sleep retailers, manufacturers and industry suppliers,” says Owen.

Sarah Bergman, who is Vice President of Marketing & Creative for PureCare, who oversees the company’s brand development, design, social media, PR, marketing and retail enhancements ( POP,etc.) was elected to serve as Vice Chairman of the SSA. At the same meeting, Pascal Roberge, Director of Sales for Beaudoin, a leader in bed frames, support systems and upholstered beds was elected to serve as the SSA Secretary / Treasurer. Among other duties, Roberge will be focused on developing SSA-sponsored research and marketing advocacy for the expanding under-the-bed, frame and support category.  Dale Read and Tambra Jones were also re-appointed to serve respectively as President and Executive Director of the SSA.

In addition to the three newly elected officers, the SSA board also elected two new members to the board expanding it to a total of ten voting members.

With the goal of increasing and strengthening retailer representation on the SSA board, the board has elected specialty sleep veteran Brian Davis, General Manager of the Saint Louis, MO-based Bedroom Store with 15 locations in the Midwest. Davis’s long affiliation with specialty sleep guru and former President of the SSA Denny Boyd helps re-focus the SSA in its mission to address specialty sleep issues at the retail level. Davis will serve for three years on the board. At the same time, looking for new blood and an international perspective, the board elected Thomas Frismodt, CEO of US-based Danican, an innovative and growing specialty sleep company, to a three-year term. Frismodt has blazed a trail of marketing and product achievements at companies in Denmark, Sweden and now in North and South America. Frismodt’s company brings a new, expanding and modern touch to the SSA showroom C-1565 at the World Market Center, Las Vegas.

The unveiling or introduction of the new SSA Logo was the final act or icing on the new cake for the SSA. The logo was developed by a branding committee consisting of Sarah Bergman, Mark Miller, Angela Owen and Tambra Jones. “We are pleased to introduce this new, clean, contemporary and stylish logo: one that fulfills our vision, mission and our future plans. It works very well with our new BEDFAX® logo introduced earlier in the year at the ISPA EXPO in Florida, states Executive Director Jones.

Putting Disclosures to the Test - A public workshop

by FTC @ Blog - bedfax

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Federal Trade Commission will host a public workshop in Washington, DC on September 15, 2016 to examine the testing and evaluation of disclosures that companies make to consumers about advertising claims, privacy practices, and other information.

Effective disclosures are critical in helping consumers make informed decisions in the marketplace.  

  • Many advertisers have used disclosures in an attempt to prevent their advertisements from being deceptive. Disclosures must be crafted with care both with respect to their language and presentation. Disclosures used in the marketplace are sometimes ineffective.  Commission staff has recommended that disclosures be tested for effectiveness.
  • Disclosures are also challenging in the privacy arena, whether disclosing to consumers that their physical location or online interactions are being tracked, or explaining privacy practices when consumers sign up for a service. Privacy policies are often long and difficult to comprehend and privacy-related icons may fail to communicate information meaningfully to consumers. Furthermore, the accompanying mechanisms for consumers to provide informed consent or exercise choices about the use of their data may also be confusing. The Commission has long encouraged the development and testing of shorter, clearer, easier-to-use privacy disclosures and consent mechanisms.
  • The FTC has issued guides to help businesses avoid deceptive claims, such as guidance related to endorsements, environmental claims, fuel economy advertising, and the jewelry industry. Often the guidance presents options for qualifying claims to avoid deception. In developing guides, the Commission has sometimes relied on consumer research to gauge whether specific disclosures can be used to qualify otherwise misleading claims.

The FTC has a long commitment to understanding and testing the effectiveness of consumer disclosure, and is especially interested in learning about the costs and benefits of disclosure testing methods in the digital age.  A number of factors impact the effectiveness of disclosures, including whether they contain the most essential information and consumers notice them, direct their attention towards them, comprehend them, and are able to use that information in their decision making.  Some testing methods are more appropriate than others for evaluating these factors.

The workshop is aimed at encouraging and improving the evaluation and testing of disclosures by industry, academics, and the FTC.  The FTC’s workshop will explore how to test the effectiveness of these disclosures to ensure consumers notice them, understand them and can use them in their decision-making.   It is intended to further the understanding of testing and evaluation of both offline and online consumer disclosures, including those delivered through icons, product labels, short text, long text, audio or video messages, interactive tools, and other media. Topics may include evaluation criteria, testing methodologies and best practices, case studies, and lessons learned from such testing.

An agenda will be available prior to the event. No registration is necessary to attend. The workshop will be webcast and a link will be available here on the day of the event.

Bedfax® Member NATUREPEDIC ORGANIC featured in OTA News

by Tambra Jones @ Blog - bedfax

From The Organic Trade Association Newsletter May 5th

Beyond food: Organic lifestyle brands star in pop-up event in New York -Organic Trade Association and sponsors present "Live Organic from Farm to Home"

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 5, 2017)—Organic is not just for eating anymore, and more than a dozen cutting-edge and innovative organic fashion and home textile brands are helping the Organic Trade Association (OTA) prove that point in an inspiring, educational and entertaining two-day pop-up event in the heart of Manhattan.

Presented by OTA and OTA's Fiber Council with the generous support of 24 outstanding sponsors, the specially designed pop-up venue – open to the public on Friday and Saturday, May 5 & 6, at the Treehaus organic café and food market -- showcases the latest in organic products for the home and for the closet. 

The all-organic pop-up shop features organic cotton T-shirts and baby clothes, organic wool sweaters and socks, organic sheets and blankets, even organic mattresses. "Live Organic from Farm to Home" is connecting the dots between that organic T-shirt or sweater and the organic cotton farmer and the organic sheep raiser; between the organic mattress factory or an organic fabric dyeing factory and the downstream impact on our water and soil.

"At Timberland, we hold ourselves accountable for what goes into our products as well as how they're made, and we're constantly seeking innovative solutions to reduce their environmental impact," said Colleen Vien, Sustainability Director for outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland, one of the event's sponsors. "Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides and requires significantly more water than organically grown cotton. As such, Timberland has had a longstanding goal of increasing our use of organic cotton year over year." 

Kicking off #LiveOrganic was a VIP reception on Thursday evening. Media guests met and mingled with the leaders and pioneers of the organic textile industry, talked with the farmers who are committing their lives to growing organic fiber in the most environmentally sustainable way, and heard the unique stories of each of the sponsoring brands. 

"We've worked diligently for 23 years to maintain our integrity as environmental stewards and to educate the consumer on the importance of using U.S. grown organic cotton. You care about what you put into your body ...you should care about what you put on your body as well," said Jimmy Wedel, an organic cotton farmer from the Texas High Plains and President of the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative (TOCMC) in Lubbock, Texas. TOCMC farmer members produce most of the organic cotton grown in this country. Wedel is a third generation farmer who farms over 4,000 areas, almost all certified organic.

Living an organic lifestyle

Today's consumer is embracing an organic food-to-fashion-and-home lifestyle. Organic food is now found in over 80 percent of American kitchens. And the American organic textile market is now a billion-dollar-plus market, posting robust double-digit growth in recent years. Organic fiber is in demand for everything from organic bath towels to baby clothes to high fashion. Consumers are increasingly looking for clean products without toxins, unnecessary ingredients, and which are produced in ways that do not harm the environment.

"Coyuchi knows how important organic fiber and sustainable practices are to our customers, so we've gone one step further," said Eileen Mockus, CEO of Coyuchi organic bedding company. "To extend the longevity of our organic cotton bedding and towels and ensure it won't end up in a landfill, we're created our new circular subscription service which lets you send back your linens and allows us to renew, upcycle, or recycle them." 

More than 13 million tons of textiles end up in U.S. landfills, according to findings by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But long before textiles reach the landfill, the production of conventional fiber is compromising the environment. Over thirty eight million pounds of pesticides were used on conventional cotton in 2014 in the U.S., making cotton third in terms of pesticide use after only corn and soybeans, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Sponsors of #LiveOrganic inspired the enthusiastic gathering on Thursday when they shared the mission of their companies and the passion for a clean world that created – and continues to create – their widening array of products.

"Responsible sourcing through environmentally and socially conscious practices, along with a commitment to transparency and community are important to everyone at Ramblers Way," said Nick Armentrout, Supply Chain Manager for sustainable and organic clothing maker Ramblers Way. "When Ramblers Way sources organic wool, we use the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) to help us assure environmental and social standards are followed from farm to fabric to fashion."

"From the field to your home, the Grund organic cotton bath rugs offer a chemical free option – no harmful pesticides and chemicals during production, harvesting and processing," said Michael Twer, Vice President, Sales/General Manager for organic bath maker Grund. "Each rug to towel is responsibly made to the absolute highest social and environmental standards, and the cotton used can be traced to the very community of cultivation."

"Naturepedic mattresses do not contain any polyurethane foam, formaldehyde, pesticides, GMOs, vinyl or any questionable materials," said Chris Robinson, Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Naturepedic organic mattress company. "Our mattresses are made without harmful chemicals of any kind, including flame retardant chemicals, or chemical flame barriers."

While the pop-up focuses on what we put on our body, the dots also connect organic cotton production to healthy organic food. Two-thirds of the harvested organic cotton crop is used in food and cattle feed. Organic cottonseed has been found to be a source of high nutrition, protein and energy in organic animal feed rations, and to boost milk production and butterfat in dairy cows. Cottonseed oil is one of the most widely used cooking oils, and organic cottonseed oil offers consumers the huge benefits of being produced from crops grown without pesticides and chemicals. 

"Our company was founded on the belief that organic makes a difference for families, farming communities and the environment," said Mike Ferry, president of Horizon Organic dairy company. "That commitment remains true today, so we are proud to support organic throughout the supply chain, in the dairy industry and beyond, and are happy to sponsor the OTA's first Live Organic from Farm to Home Pop-Up Shop."

A healthier world for all, from farm to home

OTA's Organic Fiber Council was convened in 2015 with the goal to unite the organic fiber sector with a cohesive voice, identify the challenges and opportunities in the organic fiber sector, educate the consumer about the importance of organic fiber, and help move the sector forward. 

"OTA and the Organic Fiber Council are thrilled to be telling the story of organic fiber and textiles, and to be showing the public in such a fun and engaging way why it truly makes a difference when you choose organic in every part of your life. And we're honored to be working with these industry pioneers – they're creating a healthier world for all of us," said Gwendolyn Wyard, Vice President of Regulatory and Technical Affairs for OTA and staff coordinator for the Organic Fiber Council.

The #LiveOrganic pop-up can be visited on May 5 and 6 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Treehaus MiMA, 470 West 42nd St.

The sponsoring organic fiber brands are Coyuchi, Dhana, Gallant, Grund, MetaWear, Naturepedic, Organic Cotton Plus, prAna, Ramblers Way, Spiritex, Synergy, Syona Home and Timberland. Sponsoring brands, farmers, organizations and retailers are Control Union, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Horizon Organic, OneCert, Oregon Tilth, MOM's Organic Market, Organic Valley, Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative, Textile Exchange, Whole Foods, and the Richard D. Siegel Law Offices.

The BEDFAX Survey Results are in

The BEDFAX Survey Results are in

by Dale T. Read @ Blog - bedfax

The Specialty Sleep Association (SSA) wants our membership’s opinions as we pursue various policies and programs.  Our active SSA Board of Directors has voted specifically to reach out to our retailer and manufacturing members to get your opinions on various topics.  One of those topics is the BEDFAX® Verified Contents Label Program for Mattresses. We launched our BEDFAX volunteer labeling program with a fanfare of enthusiasm expecting a high participation rate from the industry in what we thought would be a powerful consumer-focused sales tool for mattress sales. We found however, that initial enthusiasm did not in fact translate into high participation. With this in mind, we created a five-question survey on BEDFAX and sent it out to our extensive list of SSA Showroom Attendees …a total of 3128 recipients including retail owners, retail buyers, manufacturers and suppliers. Our plan was to get a broad-based response from as many SSA showroom attendees as we could get.

Distribution and response rate:  Out of a total of 3128 e-mailed surveys, the SSA heard from 197 respondents (a rate of 6%). While that is an average response rate, the number was so large that we received some valuable although diverse information from those who replied. Out of the 197 respondents 110 only answered the very first question, while 87 completed the entire five-question survey. The vast majority of respondents (167 or 85%) were retailers, while a much smaller percentage (30 or 15%) were manufacturers and suppliers to the mattress industry.

The findings were very informative, if somewhat contradictory. Let us explain.

The first question was simply: Do your customers ever ask you or your retailers, “What is this mattress made of?”  An overwhelming 81.31% of respondents replied YES.  Only 18.69% said that consumers do not inquire about the contents of mattress. So on the surface that should put the debate over that question to bed...or so you’d think. It more or less confirms that contents are an issue, and those consumer-focused advocates who want a complete contents label are not wrong in their assumptions that consumer DO care about “what’s inside” ...at least that is what 81% of our survey says.

The second question is where things began to get a bit contradictory or slightly confusing. The SSA asked “Do YOU have mattresses for which you would find this kind of contents verification helpful for the RSA or consumer? Again 81.61% of the people answering all the questions said “YES.”  But the 18% who said “NO” had strong opinions. One said, “We believe that the information supplied is adequate.” Another said, ‘”Nothing really tells what is in our mattresses.” A third, said, “ Virtually no one cares.” And another said that such a system would expose, “the really junky foam and coat hanger wire scam the major brands market.” While a minority, the negatives were loud and clear in their opinions.

Our third question was, “Do you think a clearer contents label would affect the sale of mattresses to any degree? (Would it be helpful?) While the answer was still a strong “YES” at 74% favorable, the 26% of NO’s still were strong in their opinions. On the favorable side one theme that evolved out of this research and was repeated several times: ”This would be very helpful, especially when it comes to ‘natural’ content. This is applicable to environmental concerns.”  On the other hand several respondents stated that consumers do not read the label or that too much information can be a bad thing for selling.  One retailer said that the information already provided was adequate, and another stressed that “comfort is the main determinant.” The one trend that did seem to emerge from this question was that the BEDFAX labeling program could lend itself to “environmental” or “natural” sales. There is a parallel with health, safety and wellness customers with consumers concerned about truth in labeling.

The next question focused on details of the label program itself, more or less guidance and details on how such a labeling program would work effectively. This question deserves a separate report or write-up itself, as the SSA plans and executes the details of the BEDFAX® Program.

Our final question was a critique. We asked our members and attendees what their biggest reservation or concern was about the BEDFAX® Verified Mattress Contents Label Program.  “Could it be a negative?”  Only 36% answered that this could be a negative, while 63 % answered, “No, it was not a negative.” In fact a few expressed support such as “I’m not sure I have any objections” or “I love the idea.”  Some were neutral or mildly concerned expressing ideas such as, ”Not every customer cares or understands” or they expressed concern that an open system could actually benefit competitors. However the 36 % negatives (1/3rd of the respondents) really did give us a lot to think about. Answers varied from: “Offers too much honesty.” “Customers may shy away from mattresses with high petroleum-based foam content” or “there has to be methodology to prevent manufacturers from cheating with their claims.” One respondent worried that too much information could create confusion and complicate the sale, another was concerned about too many labels and another said he/she did not have enough information to answer.

Stepping back, there are several overall conclusions at this point.  I think we can safely conclude that if the BEDFAX program is to succeed, it has to be consumer-driven. When consumers ask for better/clearer/more trustworthy contents labels on mattresses that they buy, (as they enjoy on other goods), then we will see retailers asking their manufacturers to provide them. Without this push, the industry alone has too many reservations and concerns to get involved. Finally, and probably most importantly, there really does seem to be a correlation between environmental or health, wellness and safety marketing claims and a successful contents label program.

We welcome any further thoughts, opinions or feedback you may have.

A “Chemical-Free” Mattress?

by Micah Schlendorf @ Bliss Sleep Center

  A “Chemical-Free” Mattress? Written by Toshy at Savvy Rest, April 6, 2015 When you get right down to it, claiming that any product is “chemical free” is misleading. The term chemical free, taken literally, is a misnomer. Everything is made of chemicals—from your drinking water to your cell phone—and your own body. But what’s

Shipping Troubles

by @ Suite Sleep, Inc.: Latest News

It's a nightmarish scenario:

You've spent weeks, even months, trying to find the perfect mattress, made your decision, and now you just have to wait for it to show up!  Excitement builds when you get a call from the delivery company to scheduled your appointment, you get rid of your old mattress, take time off work to make sure you don't miss them, and then you sit and wait...and wait.....and wait some more.

Unfortunately, the delivery company doesn't show up when they said they would and you've now wasted a few hours sitting around, or worse yet, they've showed up but your brand new mattress has been destroyed.

Sadly, this is a situation we have seen time and again when shipping mattresses with freight carriers, leading to disappointed and upset customers as well as lost sales.  Over the course of the last 7 years, I've learned more about freight, White Glove deliveries, and shipping in general than I ever thought I would, yet no matter how much we try to prevent problems that we see on a regular basis, they continue to plague us.  The troubles we face with freight shipping are based in the fact that these LTL (Less than Truckload) freight companies are not set up in the best way possible to deliver furniture to residential locations.  These companies typically deliver large shipments in a large semi truck to businesses with loading docks, forklifts and teams of people to help unload.  While there is an alternative, white glove delivery can cost upwards of $750 for one mattress, take as long as 2 weeks to deliver, and still doesn't guarantee a smooth and timely delivery.

Over the years, we have tried many different options to get our product to our customers as quickly and safely as possible, and the shipper with the best track record has consistently been UPS.  Over many years and thousands of shipments, we have had just a handful of shipments arrive damaged, or go missing.  This created a problem for us, as mattresses are quite a bit too large to put on a UPS truck!  The solution we came to, is to create a mattress that can be easily broken down into smaller pieces, shipped via UPS, and then quickly assembled in the customers home. 

There are many other benefits of constructing the mattress this way!  

Easier Installation

First is mobility - Latex mattresses can weigh over 300 Lbs., and have little structure to them, making them very difficult to move especially when stairs are involved.  By breaking the inside of the mattress into three smaller and lighter pieces we have made it exponentially easier.  

Customized Sleep

Another benefit is creating customized sleep and the ability to change the feel of your mattress.  As time goes on, our bodies change, our preferences change, and our mattresses don't adapt.  Instead of completely replacing your entire mattress, you can now change just the support layer to adjust the firmness to your liking!  Is your partner unhappy, but you still love the way it feels?  Great!  you can have different firmnesses on either side of your bed so you both sleep soundly. The support layer of the mattress is split right down the middle, and the top layer is kept whole so you will never notice the split below.  The cover is made with a zipper, so once you have laid the foam into the base, you can zip it closed and get a better night's sleep right away!  

Less Wear and Tear

Another problem we ran into is that when the latex foam layers are placed atop one another, movement can cause them to rub together and slowly break down.  To prevent this from happening, make sure your mattress will last as long as possible and make it easier to handle, we have wrapped each internal piece with a thin layer of organic cotton.

We've been shipping mattresses for more than 15 years and have seen it all. We've shipped on pallets, shipped in pieces and even embraced roll-packing technology. Roll-packing degrades the latex more quickly and pallets encourage the use of fork-lifts that inevitably end up spearing the mattress. But when it comes to all latex mattresses, we achieve the best outcomes when we ship them in separate pieces. We break it down into manageable components, box them, band them and send them to happy homes. We look forward to your business!

Three Companies Barred from Advertising Mattresses as Free From Volatile Organic Compounds Without Scientific Evidence to Back Up Claims

by FTC @ Blog - bedfax

Under settlements with the Federal Trade Commission, three mattress manufacturers have agreed to stop making unsupported claims that the mattresses they sell are free of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
 
In addition to challenging the companies’ VOC-free claims, the FTC charged that two of the companies made unsupported claims that their mattresses were chemical-free and lacked odor.  The FTC also challenged one company’s claim that its mattresses are made from 100 percent natural materials, and another company’s claim that its mattresses were certified by an organic mattress organization. 

In settling the FTC’s charges, the companies have agreed not to make similar claims in the future, unless they have competent and reliable scientific evidence to prove they are true.  In addition, one company is barred from making misrepresentations about certifications.

VOCs are carbon-containing compounds that easily evaporate at room temperature.  Some VOCs can be harmful to human health and the environment.  Last year, the FTC brought a similar set of cases against paint companies that also advertised their products as VOC-free.

Relief-Mart, Inc.  The FTC’s complaint alleges that Relief-Mart, based in Westlake Village, California, did not have and rely upon a reasonable basis to substantiate its claims that its Biogreen memory foam mattresses do not contain VOCs, have no VOC off-gassing, and lack the odors commonly associated with memory foam mattresses.

Essentia Natural Memory Foam Company, IncThe FTC alleges that Essentia made unsubstantiated claims that its mattresses do not contain VOCs, are chemical-free, have no chemical off-gassing or odor, and are made from 100 percent natural materials.  Moreover, the complaint alleges that Essentia claimed that tests show that its memory foam is free of VOCs and formaldehyde when, in fact, tests do not support these claims. 

Ecobaby Organics, Inc.  The complaint against Ecobaby, based in San Diego, California, alleges that Ecobaby made unsubstantiated claims that its mattresses are chemical-free; formaldehyde-free; free of VOCs, such as toluene and benzene; and without toxic substances.  The complaint further alleges that the company misrepresented that its mattresses are certified by an independent third-party certifier when, in fact, the certifier is an alter ego of the company that awarded its seal to its own products without applying objective standards.   Finally, according to the complaint, Ecobaby Organics claimed that tests show that its mattresses are VOC-free, chemical-free, and Formaldehyde-free when tests do not support these claims. 

The proposed orders bar Relief-MartEssentia, and Ecobaby, from making VOC-free claims unless the VOC level is zero micrograms per cubic meter or the company relies upon competent and reliable scientific evidence that its mattresses contain no more than trace levels of VOCs, based on the guidance in the FTC’s Green Guides.  The orders also bar environmental benefit or attribute claims, and certain health claims, unless they are true, not misleading, and supported by scientific evidence.  

In addition, the Essentia and Ecobaby orders bar the companies from making chemical-free claims, prohibit any misrepresentations about whether the companies have testing to prove the claims about their mattresses, and bar the companies from making non-toxic claims without scientific support.  The Relief-Mart and Essentia orders also bar the companies from making certain types of odor claims unless they are true, not misleading, and supported by scientific evidence.  The Essentia order also bars the company from making natural claims without scientific support. Finally, the Ecobaby order prohibits the company from making misrepresentations about third-party certifications of its mattresses.

Information for Consumers and Business

According to the Green Guides, companies sometimes claim that their products are “free of” a chemical or other ingredient that may be an environmental concern.  When marketers say a product is “free of” an ingredient, the product must not contain the ingredient or have only a trace amount.  The “trace amount” test is met if:  1) the level of the ingredient is less than that which would be found as an acknowledged trace contaminant or background level; 2) the ingredient’s presence does not cause material harm that consumers typically associate with it; and 3) the ingredient has not been added intentionally.  The FTC has a new post on the agency’s Business Blog page about mattresses and VOCs titled FTC to mattress companies:  Don’t pad your green claims.

The Commission votes to accept the packages containing the proposed consent orders for public comment were 4-0.  The FTC will publish a description of the packages in the Federal Register shortly.  The agreements will be subject to public comment for 30 days, beginning today and continuing through August 26, 2013, after which the Commission will decide whether to make the proposed consent orders final.

Comments in paper form should be mailed or delivered to:  Federal Trade Commission, Office of the Secretary, Room H-113 (Annex D), 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20580.

NOTE:  The Commission issues an administrative complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the law has been or is being violated, and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest.  When the Commission issues a consent order on a final basis, it carries the force of law with respect to future actions.  Each violation of such an order may result in a civil penalty of up to $16,000.

The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint in English or Spanish, visit the FTC's online Complaint Assistant or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). The FTC enters complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to more than 2,000 civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad.

SSA President Dale Read clarifies who can and cannot use the USDA-NOP Seal in their marketing

SSA President Dale Read clarifies who can and cannot use the USDA-NOP Seal in their marketing

by Tambra Jones @ Blog - bedfax

The following does not represent a legal opinion or a legal representation. This is merely a research report on links and materials readily available from USDA-NOP and the Organic Trade Association (OTA.)

Manufacturers of Finished Textile or “Fiber” Products May NOT Use the USDA-NOP Seal.

A question has arisen on a number of occasions with members of the Specialty Sleep Association (SSA) and other mattress, pillow and textile products manufacturers concerning the use of the USDA-NOP Seal with marketing tools, websites, signage and public relations.

The US Government USDA and the USDA-National Organic Program (NOP) receive their authority and financing through the Farm Bill. As a result the jurisdiction or authority to create standards and enforcement for the USDA-NOP are reserved for “agricultural crops or animals  and the farms, ranches and plantations where these agri-products are grown or raised, and in the case of food products, the subsequent processing. The farms are inspected and the agri-source receives the USDA-NOP certification and use of the seal. If you use cotton, wool, coir, hemp or other “organic” fibers, even if they originate on a farm or an agricultural site that has the USDA-NOP seal, the minute you handle, wash, comb, spin, weave or process the textile or create a finished textile or fiber product, you are not authorized to use that USDA-NOP seal. There are NO USDA-NOP mattresses, pillows, futons,  toppers, sheets, comforters, or other mattress and bedding products.

The labeling requirements of the NOP apply to raw, fresh products and processed products that contain organic agricultural ingredients. Agricultural products that are sold, labeled, or represented as organic must be produced and processed in accordance with the NOP standards. Except for operations whose gross income from organic sales totals $5,000 or less, farm and processing operations that grow and process organic agricultural products must be certified by USDA-accredited certifying agents.

https://www.ams.usda.gov/rules-regulations/organic/organic-seal

https://www.ams.usda.gov/sites/default/files/media/Using%20the%20Organic%20Seal%20Factsheet.pdf

Since then, the seal has become a highly sought-after labeling mark in the world of agricultural products and has appeared on millions of labels, advertisements, and marketing materials.

https://www.ams.usda.gov/sites/default/files/media/OrganicTextilePolicyMemo.pdf

Textile products that are labeled as “organic” must not:

•Use the USDA organic seal unless they are certified in accordance with the NOP regulations. 

•Imply or lead the consumer to believe that the final product is certified under the NOP Regulations unless they are certified in accordance with the NOP regulations. 

•Use a combination of both organic and non-organic sources for a single fiber that is identified as “organic” in the final product.

https://ota.com/sites/default/files/indexed_files/OTA_FiberAdvocacy_140915.pdf

As a practical alternative, the policy memo explicitly confirms that textile products produced in accordance with GOTS, such as apparel, mattresses, or socks, may be sold as “organic” in the United States, although they may not refer to NOP certification or carry the USDA Organic seal.
