Green washing is getting popular these days, so it is worth mentioning that in the case of the “Natural, Organic, Soy” mattresses by The Futon Shop, there is no such thing! It is true that a very small percentage of soy has been added to certain memory foams, but this amounts to less than 10% and even that amount currently distorts the memory foam feel.
We hope in the future that this may become a reality, but for the present time, it is not and want the consumers to be aware of the real truth behind this new trend.
With that said, the mattress they offer is a coil/fiber filled/memory foam combination. It does have an organic cotton cover. As mentioned, the memory foam has very little soy, but it may be a better Futon alternative than the usual Futon mattress compositions. However, keep in mind that any well layered memory foam mattress with a firm enough base can be placed on a Futon.
