Founded on the basis that organic is “safer, naturally,” Organic Mattresses Inc. (OMI) has long been an industry leader in organic bedding. Staying away from ambiguous terms such as “green,” “natural” and “eco-friendly” that often have no way of being verified, OMI is a staunch supporter of third-party certification. As listed in the company’s respected Purity Guarantee, OMI certifications include the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) as well as the prestigious UL/Greenguard Gold certification for product emissions. To further grow the organic market, OMI is directing much of its marketing budget to target millennials. According to a recent survey conducted by the Organic Trade Association (OTA), more than half of organic consumers are millennials, who lead both Generation Xers and baby boomers in their penchant for buying. And with an expansive array of organic mattresses running the gamut from velocity-priced to luxury, OMI is uniquely positioned to deliver.
