SAMINA is proud to maintain a zero carbon footprint from sourcing through production. In addition to various European certifications, we are also a Green America Certified Business, which assures you that our materials are sustainable. For example, we exclusively use wood that is FSC-certified. SAMINA uses only natural products that are bio-degradable and natural materials tend to last longer. One of the biggest challenges we face is answering our clients when they ask what to do with their old mattress. Because of hygiene issues, it is hard to find a charity that will accept donations so most, unfortunately, end up in landfills. SAMINA, on the other hand, is bio-degradable and will last longer than a conventional mattress. With some simple care and occasional replacement of components every decade or so, SAMINA can last a lifetime or even longer.
You may be someone who is aware of how horrifyingly inhumane the majority of sheepfarmers treat their sheep. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and celebrities like Pink have long advocated to improve the conditions and practices the wool industry utilizes which, in our opinion, are barbaric. We do not condone these practices and only use animal-friendly wool. It’s hand-processed, which means humanely hand-shorn, hand-washed, and then hand-combed into layers. Made from the purest virgin sheep’s wool, SAMINA uses wool filling in the bedding, as well as pillows and wool pad toppers. Not only are the products made from the purest virgin sheep’s wool, but used from free-roaming, pesticide-free, living sheep.
Organic mattresses are good for you and good for the environment. We consider the mattress you choose as a long-term investment in your health and wellbeing. The mattress industry has evolved to become a business of cheap, mass production utilizing synthetic materials, fabrics that don’t breathe and are drenched in flame retardants including potentially carcinogenic chemicals, designs that trap moisture and encourage growth of dust mites, mold, and bacteria. No one deserves to sleep in that! SAMINA is committed to producing organic beds that are good for you with products that support your body, are safe in contact with your skin and not hazardous to breathe or be near your eyes, ears, nose and mouth.
