GOTS was developed in 2006 as a worldwide standard to ensure the organic status and socially responsible manufacturing of textiles throughout the entire supply chain. The entire Birch mattress, including the organic cotton, has achieved this high honor. This certification indicates that our products have been independently verified to be organic and ethically produced from beginning to end. See Certification
All cotton in our bedding and sleep products is Fair Trade Certified and we only partner with Fair Trade factories, which encourage sustainable cotton production and provide economic benefits to their workers. Fair Trade works with small-scale cotton farmers, helps build stronger farmer-owned organizations, and makes positive impacts to creating job opportunities for women and bettering gender equity around the world.

All Birch sleep products are GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment, one of the leading environmental health agencies in the world. This means our products have been tested for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pollutants, phthalates, and formaldehyde. The Gold level certification offers even stricter regulations and means our products are considered safe for sensitive individuals, including children and the elderly.
Our Talalay latex has been tested by an international organization to certify no emissions or VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are present. This includes testing for organic pollutants, heavy metals, pesticides, and phthalates among other substances. This certification is not about merely meeting minimum requirements, but rather exceeding high level material as well as manufacturing standards. See Certification
