 Naturepedic, maker of certified organic, nontoxic mattress and bedding products, is announced as a Front-runner in the new Chemical Footprint Project (CFP) Report. The CFP seeks to advance chemical footprinting to reduce business use of hazardous chemicals, which when exposed to, can cause a range of diseases. Naturepedic was deemed a “top performer” in all aspects of proactive chemical management, as evidenced by demonstrating best practices in chemical management across the four pillars of the CFP 2020 Survey.

Led by independent, non-profit organization, Clean Production Action (CPA), the CFP 2020 Survey reveals, evaluates and benchmarks where the 33 participating companies are on their chemicals management journey beyond regulatory compliance. As noted in the report, regulatory compliance is the baseline level of performance in chemicals management, therefore, showcasing best practices in chemicals management, as Naturepedic does, goes far beyond regulatory compliance. The evaluations provide a holistic framework for how companies identify hazardous chemicals in products, packaging, manufacturing, and supply chains, and replace them with safer alternatives.

Leading the organic, nontoxic mattress revolution for over 18 years, Naturepedic was not only amongst seven companies in the report that scored over 80 percent of possible points in the CFP 2020 Survey, qualifying as a Front-runner, but the company placed second out of the total 33 participating companies, scoring a total of 97 percent of possible points. The CFP classifies these Front-runners as leaders in accountability and safer chemical alternatives, uniquely excelling to: have senior management leadership and Board level engagement in chemicals and management, publicly disclose their restricted substances list (RSL) and manufacturing RSL (MRSL), measure their chemical footprint, and invest in safer alternatives to Chemicals of High Concern (CoHCs).

Naturepedic was also recognized as a Disclosure Leader in the 2020 CFP Survey, agreeing to publicly disclose their survey responses and score, highlighting a willingness to transparently engage with stakeholders and the public on their non-toxic chemical efforts. 

“We’re honored to be recognized for our efforts in proactive chemical management by the new CFP 2020 Report,” comments Barry A. Cik, Board-Certified Environmental Engineer, Founder, and Technical Director of Naturepedic, “At Naturepedic, we understand that reducing consumer exposure to environmental toxins in products can make a significant impact in preventing non-hereditary disease. It’s what motivates us to not only be a transparent, certified, respected organic, nontoxic brand that families can trust, but to fight for massive chemical reform while transforming lives through safer, healthier sleep.”

All Naturepedic mattress and bedding products are certified organic by GOTS. They are also certified non-toxic to the Made Safe standard, in addition to the Greenguard Gold and UL Formaldehyde-Free standards, and eliminate questionable materials and chemicals found in most conventional mattresses, such as flame-retardant chemicals and chemical flame barriers, vinyl, formaldehyde, polyurethane foam and glues/adhesives, while meeting and exceeding the highest level of certifications available in the marketplace.
