The harvest of our pure wool
The wool that is used in products derived from Green Sleep fleece of a small island in the Netherlands named Texel.
There, a family business is proud of its organic production methods. Their sheep are being farmed advocating a healthy life without drugs. They are examined daily to check their health.

Harvesting of natural rubber
To the soul of our natural rubber mattresses, we start with liquid latex – the sap or « milk » of Hevea brasiliensis, rubber tree common – planted by independent farmers in North Malaysia. For years, these farmers upgrade their organic farming methods in collaboration with the National Institute of Rubber in Kuala Lumpur.After many years of careful selection, the Malaysian plantation workers have managed to get the milk plant that may be suitable rubber poured into mattress cores of different degrees of firmness.
The souls of Green Sleep Natural Rubber from our own tree farm. Is applied to the seedlings to give a graft seed North Malaysia 600, which produces rubber, the purest and most resilient of all. « 600 North Malaysia » is a proprietary process to Green Sleep.
As might be expected, no latex, fiberfill or herbicides are used during growth and harvest.
Since the raw milk of rubber destabilizes when it is stored too long, Green Sleep has taken steps to ensure that the milk is turned into a rubber plantation near. In fact, by transforming raw milk from the rubber tree the day of harvest, it avoids the use of chemical stabilizers.
The milk harvested rubber is poured in the morning leaves in the afternoon and the leaves are shipped shortly after the establishment of the Canadian Green Sleep. To manufacture our rubber to the spot where the milk is harvested from the tree is not only a healthy choice for the environment but also a cost-effective choice.
This production method also helps the local economy. Jobs are created without depleting natural resources.
Why today’s informed consumer chooses natural rubber
It is not known generally that Hevea milk contains an antibacterial substance that acts as a repellent to dust mites. Natural rubber made from this unique substance is also breathable and insensitive to temperature. This is why it is never moist or warm. Furthermore, it also contributes to the following properties of our products Green Sleep:
Maintaining the shape and firmness to support stable year after year
Durability and elasticity for the longevity of the mattress
Flexibility and stability for unparalleled comfort
Excellent control of heat and moisture Natural
Upper air circulation for the prevention of mold growth
Note that at the end of useful life of a mattress, natural rubber starts to degrade as it is a biodegradable vegetable substance. But this decomposition takes place only after years of well-being from your Green Sleep mattress and box spring.
