Carolina Mattress Guild boasts that their ingredients are eco-friendly. The firm is a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council and uses CertiPUR-US certified foams. Some of these eco-friendly ingredients are tickings made from organic cotton and bamboo pulp fiber, silk and wool, hybrid soy foam (including memory foam), synthetic and natural latex, and gel-infused memory foam. They also use wood from the spruce pine fir and yarns made from recycled plastic bottles.
