PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tuft & Needle (T&N) announced today that its entire mattress product line has earned UL GREENGUARD Gold Certification, providing individuals and families across the country with a healthier sleeping solution. GREENGUARD Certified products aid in the creation of healthier indoor environments, and release fewer pollutants that can contribute to health issues including asthma and other respiratory issues.
UL Environment’s GREENGUARD Certification Program requires that products meet some of the world's most rigorous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor environments. This certification - while not an industry standard - was important to achieve for the T&N brand and places it in an elite group of companies that have earned the same mark.
“Tuft & Needle has always been focused on offering safe, sustainable products, and we believe in full transparency,” said T&N Founder JT Marino. “We want our customers to not only sleep comfortably, but also with peace of mind that the place they rest their head at night is free of harmful chemicals. So we saw a need to ensure our customers of this, with a third-party verification of our products as low-emitting and safe for their homes.”
The complete T&N mattress product - from the T&N Adaptive® Foam layer to the base support layer to the outer cover - was tested for formaldehyde and over 300 other VOCs with health-based limits, using environmental chamber testing. Its GREENGUARD label validates that the mattress is low-emitting and supports healthy indoor environments.
“By earning the GREENGUARD Certification, Tuft & Needle has demonstrated their dedication to supporting healthier indoor environments; a critically important effort, as we spend upwards of 90 percent of our time indoors,” said Alberto Uggetti, vice president and general manager of UL Environment. “The GREENGUARD Gold mark indicates the brand’s commitment to producing a trustworthy product that allows everyone to rest easy.”
Phoenix-based Tuft & Needle is a bootstrapped company that pioneered the disruption of the mattress industry. Founded in 2012, T&N offers one style of mattress crafted entirely in the U.S., with a 100-Night Sleep Trial, free returns and a no-gimmicks 10-year warranty.
