We spend approximately 30% of our life sleeping on a mattress, yet have you ever thought about what your mattress is made of and how that might also be impacting your health.
When Tim Masters' infant daughter was suffering from severe allergies and eczema he started to think about how the chemicals in her mattress might be playing a role. As a mattress craftsman by trade, Tim knew there was something better he could do for this daughter. This marked the beginning of My Green Mattress: a company committed to building the best, organic certified and hypoallergenic mattresses.
In this episode we’re talking about what conventional mattresses are made of and how those materials can be harmful to your health. We’re going to help you identify what certifications to look for when choosing a safer mattress, and I’m even sharing my own journey in getting My Green mattress.

Tim Masters is a father of five who created My Green Mattress in 2007 after his infant daughter was suffering from severe allergies and eczema. As a mattress craftsman by trade, he knew there was something better he and his wife Cindy could be doing by sourcing the best all-natural and organic wool, cotton, and latex to ease her chemical sensitivities. Tim created the Emily Organic Crib mattress in 2007 and soon after created a line of safe, healthy, affordable organic mattresses free of harmful toxins for the entire home.
At age 17, Tim worked as an apprentice at a local family-owned mattress company just outside Chicago called Quality Sleep Shop. Here he learned how to handcraft a mattress and customize the layers to fit each customer. To this day, Tim can tell immediately if a customer is a back, stomach or side sleeper. At the age of 25, he had the opportunity to purchase the company from the previous owner who was retiring. Tim and his wife Cindy grew the business until their second child was born with severe allergies and skin sensitivities. This marked a major shift in their business as they quickly realized there were other families out there with similar challenges. My Green Mattress was born out of this need and the mission of My Green Mattress remains committed to building the best, organic certified and hypoallergenic sleep solutions from Earth’s finest, all-natural materials while also remaining accessible and affordable for everyone.
