What’s Hiding in Your Mattress?

Do you know what’s hiding in your mattress? It might be more than you think! We spend up to one-third of our lives on our mattress, so this is a topic I really wanted to talk about on the podcast, and today’s expert guest has a lot of good information to share.

Barry A. Cik is the founder and Technical Director of Naturepedic, a manufacturer of award-winning certified organic mattresses. His devotion to the organic industry is the natural result of his lifelong interest in preserving the environment, not only for us but for all future generations as well. A board-certified environmental engineer, Barry combines his passion for improving our quality of life with the technical knowledge to do so. Barry is an advocate for legislative reform and was invited to testify in Washington, D.C. as part of a congressional subcommittee exploring chemical reform. Barry is also a frequent speaker and thought leader, speaking before scientific, consumer, political, and business audiences on the benefits of sustainable product design.

His background in environmental engineering led Barry to chart his own successful entrepreneurial course for many years. When shopping for his first grandchild’s crib mattress, he was troubled to discover the state of the baby mattress industry. From that moment, Barry was inspired and determined to create mattress products that were safer and healthier for every child. Working in tandem with his sons, Barry established Naturepedic in 2003.

Barry continues to work hard, both for the parents that depend on Naturepedic’s No-Compromise approach to safer sleep and for the generations that will inherit the sustainability movement. He believes in a healthier world without harmful chemicals, environmental toxins, or destructive business practices.

I admit this is something that I didn’t give much thought to before speaking with Barry, but what he revealed completely changed the way I think about healthy sleep, and I hope it does for you too!
