Our overall top pick out of the three collections offered by My Green Mattress is the Natural Escape mattress, an affordable medium-firm hybrid mattress that combines the best of natural latex and pocketed innersprings. That being said, each of these high-quality natural mattresses has some impressive features that may suit different requirements, so read on to find the best one for you.
My Green Mattress is a family-run company that makes quality, all-natural mattresses from hypoallergenic and non-toxic materials. Stemming from their own daughter’s health issues, the company aims to create mattresses that won’t aggravate conditions, such as eczema and allergies, resulting in mattresses that use high-quality, natural materials, manufactured in the USA.
My Green Mattress has three different collections we’ll be reviewing: the Pure Echo mattress, the Hope Latex mattress, and the Natural Escape mattress, all of which are available in sizes Twin through to California King, and are designed to be suitable for all types of sleepers, including teenagers and children.
#1 Most Affordable My Green Mattress – Pure Echo Mattress
The Pure Echo mattress is an innerspring mattress and the most economical option from My Green Mattress. Available as either a one-sided or double-sided mattress, this 10.25-inch high bed has a medium-firm feel, designed to be suitable for most people.
What We Like:
- Handcrafted with GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified materials
- Organic cotton batting
Available in a one or double-sided model
- Three-zone pocketed innerspring for less motion transfer
- Affordable price
- 100-night comfort guarantee
- 25-year warranty
What We Don’t Like:
- Some users find it too firm
The Pure Echo mattress is constructed from a combination of innerspring and wool layers to create a medium-firm feel described as suitable for all sleep styles and ideal for children.
The cover of the mattress is made from soft, GOTS certified organic cotton, combined with Oeko-Tex certified natural wool to create a quilted cover that is not only soft but also acts as a natural flame barrier without the use of any flame retardant chemicals.
Underneath the cover is a layer of heavyweight organic cotton batting, which adds cushioning and comfort to the mattress. Additionally, cotton is excellent at drawing heat and moisture away from the body to ensure you stay cool throughout the night.
Finally, the Pure Echo mattress has a three-zone pocketed coil innerspring with lumbar and edge support. The centre third of the mattress has coils set closer together to give the mattress additional firmness in this area, allowing it to support the (heavier) lumbar area and keep your spine neutrally aligned.
What’s more, this innerspring layer has tighter coils at the edge of the mattress to ensure it provides consistent support from edge-to-edge. The individually encased coils are designed to minimise motion transfer, which is ideal for light sleepers who are often disturbed by their partner’s movements, while the coils also provide enough spring to retain a ‘sleep-on-top’ feeling.
This mattress is the only one from My Green Mattress that can be purchased either as a one-sided mattress or as a double-sided mattress. This could be a great option for parents buying the mattress for young children, as it can give you peace of mind that you’ve got two sides in the case of an accident or spills. It also lets you flip the mattress, to increase its longevity.
Medium-firm feel for back and stomach sleepers
The Pure Echo mattress is described as having a medium-firm feel, which should be most suitable for back and stomach sleepers, although it is described as being ideal for all sleep styles.
What’s more, the pressure relief and comfort the mattress provides is described as ideal for adults, teenagers, and children – with many user reviews suggesting that this economical, eco-friendly mattress is a popular choice for children especially.
Temperature regulation & motion transfer
Heat regulation is an important part of mattress construction, as a bed that sleeps hot can result in countless restless and interrupted nights. The Pure Echo mattress has several features that should keep you cool throughout the night.
First, the top layers of cotton and wool work well at wicking heat and moisture away from your body, creating a cooler sleep surface. Likewise, the individually wrapped innerspring coils allow air to pass through the mattress more easily than in an all-foam bed.
The Pure Echo mattress also has needle punched cotton insulator pads that create additional ventilation to prevent heat from being trapped to keep the mattress and, therefore you, cool.
In terms of motion transfer, the individually wrapped coils in the Pure Echo mattress are effective at isolating motion to prevent movement from your partner’s side waking you up. This is ideal for light sleepers sharing a bed in need of a mattress that will not disturb you when your partner moves around beside you.
A superb choice for eco-friendliness
One of the biggest pros of all the beds from My Green Mattress is their eco-friendly design. The Pure Echo mattress includes organic cotton that is GOTS-certified and Oeko-Tex-certified organic wool. Both are international testing bodies that guarantee these materials meet certain standards.
These materials are all naturally hypoallergenic, making the Pure Echo mattress ideal for allergy sufferers or for anyone who wants a natural mattress that uses no toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process.
The Queen-size Pure Echo mattress weighs 85-pounds and the double-sided version weighs 90-pounds, so this is a fairly lightweight mattress that should be easy to move around into the right place, once delivered.
The mattress is delivered roll-packed for added convenience, so you simply need to cut along the seam of the plastic wrapping once you have the mattress in place to allow it to unroll and fully expand.
As the mattress has no odour or off-gassing when first unpacked, you can use the mattress straight away. My Green Mattress notes that the only odour you may detect is that of new wool and cotton, but these smells are non-toxic and will dissipate in a few days.
This mattress also comes with a 100-night sleep trial period and a 25-year warranty.
Overall, the Pure Echo mattress is an affordable eco-friendly innerspring mattress that appears to be particularly popular for parents looking for a natural, non-toxic mattress for their children. It receives excellent reviews and offers great value for money if high-quality, all-natural materials are your top priorities.
#2 Best My Green Mattress For Side Sleepers – Hope Latex Mattress
The 8-inch Hope Latex mattress is made from three layers of 100 percent Dunlop latex to provide contouring support with a soft, plush feel.
This mattress is described as medium-firm and suitable for side sleepers in particular, but equally ideal for people who prefer the contouring feel of latex and a mattress made with all-natural materials.
What We Like:
- 100 percent organic Dunlop latex
- GOTS-certified organic cotton
- Suitable for most sleep positions
- 100-night sleep trial period
- 25-year warranty
What We Don’t Like:
- Only one-sided
- Thinner design
The Hope Latex mattress is described as being medium-firm and ideal for back, front, and side sleepers, although the uppermost latex layer has a plush feel. Despite that, user reviews seem to suggest that the mattress feels relatively firm, so lightweight side sleepers may want to consider an additional soft topper for added cushioning.
The mattress has the same cover as the Pure Echo mattress and includes GOTS-certified organic cotton, followed by a layer of quilted eco-wool for comfort and as a natural flame barrier.
The Hope Latex mattress is then constructed from three layers of Dunlop latex. The bottom 3-inch layer is the firmest, acting as a supportive base for durability.
The 3-inch middle is a medium-firm layer of latex that is designed to contour to your body for deep pressure relief and support. Finally, the top layer is made of 2-inches of soft latex that provides a plusher feel.
Medium-firm feel for back and stomach sleepers
Despite having a plush top layer, the Hope Latex mattress is described as having a medium-firm feel. From user reviews, the mattress seems to be true to this rating, so should be suitable for side sleepers and back and stomach sleepers who enjoy contouring support from a mattress.
The Hope Latex mattress is designed to be suitable for people of all sizes, although its low-profile may make it slightly more suitable for lighter people.
If you are a couple who prefer to sleep in different positions, the medium-firm mattress should be a good mid-way point to suit both of you.
Temperature regulation & motion control
The Hope Latex mattress uses natural latex derived from the sap of rubber trees in its mattresses, which is not only more environmentally friendly and safer but is also better at heat regulation.
With the addition of naturally breathable wool and cotton layers above the latex, the Hope Latex mattress sleeps cool with great temperature regulation – perfect for those who tend to sleep hot.
Likewise, latex has a natural ability to isolate motion transfer, reducing the likelihood of you being disturbed when sharing the bed with a partner. The Hope Latex mattress is highly rated for its ability to isolate motion and multiple users report no disruption from movement on the other side of the bed.
100 percent natural
The Hope Latex mattress is made from 100 percent natural latex sustainably sourced from rubber trees. It is dust-mite, mould, and mildew resistant and therefore naturally hypoallergenic. It should last for approximately 10 years – perfect for anyone who suffers from allergies or who wants a long-lasting, all-natural mattress.
Likewise, the top layers of cotton and wool are equally ethically sourced. The cotton is GOTS-certified and organic, while the layer of American eco-wool is Oeko-Tex-certified to guarantee it meets international quality standards.
A Queen-size Hope Latex mattress weighs 100 pounds, and although this is relatively heavy for an 8-inch mattress, is actually fairly lightweight when compared to other latex mattresses, which are typically very heavy.
The mattress is one-sided so it does not need to be flipped, although My Green Mattress do recommend rotating it head-to-foot once a month for the first three months and then every three to four months to ensure the mattress breaks in evenly and does not develop body indentations.
The Hope Latex mattress also comes with the 100-night comfort guarantee and a 25-year warranty that covers faulty workmanship and material defects.
Across the board, the Hope Latex mattress receives great reviews. The natural latex and organic materials used in the construction of the mattress are a hit with anyone looking to avoid buying a mattress that uses synthetic or potentially toxic materials and, considering the quality of the materials used, the Hope Latex remains reasonably priced.
What’s more, the mattress is extremely well reviewed for its level of comfort, as well as how well it isolates motion and regulates temperature. Tied in with the long sleep trial period and lengthy warranty, this is mattress is a great choice if a natural, eco-friendly latex mattress is what you’re looking for.
#3 Best Overall My Green Mattress Option – Natural Escape Mattress
The 11.5-inch high Natural Escape mattress combines features of the Pure Echo and Hope Latex mattresses to create a luxurious, button-tufted hybrid mattress that promises to offer the ideal balance of contouring support and comfortable spring.
With a medium-firm feel, this is another mattress from My Green Mattress that is described as being ideal for any sleep preference, as well as for those who enjoy a contouring feel with added support.
What We Like:
- Button-tufted for added durability
- Hybrid design for support and bounce
- Made from hypoallergenic, natural materials
- 100-night comfort guarantee
- 25-year warranty
What We Don’t Like:
- Feels quite firm initially
- Strong latex smell when first unpacked
The Natural Escape mattress is a medium-firm hybrid mattress that combines a pocketed coil spring system with comfort layers made of latex, followed by eco-wool to make for a supportive mattress with a contouring top.
The mattress has the same cover as the other two collections from My Green Mattress: a GOTS-certified organic quilted cotton cover followed by natural American eco-wool that adds softness and also acts as a natural flame barrier.
Underneath this is a 3-inch layer of natural Dunlop latex to give the mattress softness and contouring support, ideal for side sleepers or anyone who enjoys the contouring feel of latex.
The final layer is the same three-zone pocketed coil innerspring with lumbar and edge support that is also used in the Pure Echo mattress. This system has closely-set coils in the centre third of the mattress in order to provide additional support to the heaviest part of your body and ensure your spine remains neutrally aligned while sleeping. It also has tighter coils arranged along the edge of the mattress to ensure the mattress provides support from edge-to-edge.
Finally, the Natural Escape mattress is finished with a button-tufted design. This is done by threading layers of fabric through the mattress and topping it with a button in order to secure the layers of the mattress together (with no adhesives) for a sturdier, durable design.
Medium-firm feel with a soft top
The Natural Escape mattress has a medium-firm feel, which is generally comfortable in most sleep positions and a good mid-way point for couples who prefer sleeping in different positions.
However, the softness the latex layer adds to this mattress may make it most suitable for side sleepers who need a supportive mattress with added cushioning and contouring comfort. There are several reviews from side sleepers and people who sleep in other positions who report that the mattress feels comfortable and not overly firm.
Motion transfer & heat regulation
Hybrid mattresses are said to combine the best of both worlds (of innerspring and latex, in this case), and that’s certainly true of the Natural Escape mattress when it comes to isolating motion and regulating temperature.
Natural latex is excellent at allowing air to circulate through the mattress, while the pocketed coils and breathable cotton cover only enhance these properties, creating a cooling mattress that shouldn’t trap heat as you sleep.
The latex and pocketed coil system should work in tandem to prevent motion transfer across the mattress, so you and your partner can get a decent night’s sleep without disturbing one another.
While the Natural Escape mattress may not be quite as natural as the Hope Latex mattress (due to the metal coils), it is still a very eco-friendly option.
My Green Mattress only uses GOTS-certified organic cotton and Oeko-Tex-certified American eco-wool, and the latex is 100 percent natural Dunlop latex, sustainably sourced from rubber trees.
Additionally, the pocketed coil springs are recyclable, so even the non-natural aspects of this mattress remain a more eco-friendly choice than many other mattress brands.
A Queen-size Natural Escape mattress weighs 115-pounds, so it’s a fairly heavy mattress that you may need some help getting into place.
The mattress is delivered roll-packed, so My Green Mattress recommends opening the mattress only once it’s in the bedroom where you plan to keep it. Simply place the mattress on your foundation before cutting along the seam of the plastic wrap to allow it to unroll and expand. The mattress should be ready for use immediately upon unrolling.
The Natural Escape mattress should not have any odour when first unpacked and no off-gassing of any dangerous chemicals either. However, the company does note that you may notice natural odours from the wool and cotton materials, although these are non-toxic and will dissipate quickly – user reviews seem to be in line with this, too.
The mattress comes with handles on the sides to be used to rotate your mattress, which My Green Mattress recommends you do every three to four months.
This mattress, like the other two, comes with a 100-night comfort guarantee and a 25-year warranty. Although all three options from My Green Mattress are very well reviewed and affordable considering the standard of their materials, the Natural Escape mattress is our top pick, overall.
This is a seriously high-quality mattress with premium, non-toxic materials and great reviews – and the long warranty only further attests to the durability of the mattress. It regulates temperature, isolates motion for an undisturbed night’s sleep, and is a good choice for an eco-friendly mattress that should be comfortable for the majority of people.
Sleep Trial & Warranty Information
My Green Mattress products come with a 100-night sleep trial period. This means that within those first 100-nights, you can return your mattress at any time for a full refund. The condition of this trial is that you sleep on your mattress for at least 30 days before making your decision, to allow your mattress to break in and for your body to get used to it.
The mattresses also come with a 25-year warranty to cover you from faulty workmanship or material defects.
All three collections from My Green Mattress are, overall, great value for money and high-quality mattresses that prioritise premium, eco-friendly materials with no toxic chemicals.
Our top pick is the Natural Escape hybrid mattress, simply because it combines the best features of the two other collections to create a comfortable yet supportive mattress that regulates temperature for a healthy night’s sleep.
That being said, if you are looking for an eco-friendly mattress, each of these three mattresses has their own unique features that may be suitable to different people.
If you are looking for a mattress that focuses on natural materials, My Green Mattress is a great choice. More than that though, they’re well-made and receive excellent reviews for the comfort and support they provide – the quality materials are simply an added bonus.
