What About Organic or Green Memory Foam?


One new trend in all bedding is to speak about organic memory foam or green memory foam. While there are ways to make memory foam more environmentally friendly (Biogreen® Memory Foam is one such example), for memory foam to have the same type of visco-elastic feel and support as the original NASA developed formulation it cannot be organic or soy-based (usually 5-10 % soy can be added to memory foam), nor can it be all-natural. However, the memory foam made in the United States has been shown to be safe and non-toxic, and some manufacturers have gone one step further to reduce or eliminate V.O.C. off-gassing odors and other borderline chemical additives.
