This winter, NCFI is set to introduce a memory foam mattress that is certified under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred Program as a bio-based product. Designed using proprietary foams and a fabric also certified under the program, the BioLux Mattress is ideal for the environmentally conscious customer.
The USDA’s BioPreferred Program identifies products that are derived from plants and other renewable agriculture, marine and forestry materials. Under the program, companies apply for certification, which requires independent, third-party verification of the amount of bio-based content in a product.
“We’ve been dedicated to utilizing renewable technology for a long time and being the first to bring a BioPreferred mattress to the marketplace is the crowning achievement for us in the realm of environmental stewardship,” said Chris Bradley, executive vice president of NCFI’s consumer products division. “This is a culmination of many years of research by our talented development team. This is only the beginning of NCFI pushing the envelope on developing renewable consumer products.”
Priced to retail at $1,299, NCFI’s 11-inch BioLux Mattress is crafted with two foam layers—an eight-inch foam base topped with a three-inch layer of NCFI’s four-pound memory foam. Both layers are certified under the BioPreferred program. The mattress is dressed in a zippered cover made of fine organic cotton.
The BioLux Mattress is the fifth, and most recent product developed by NCFI utilizing renewable technology.
