An organic mattress is no small investment, which is why we’re big believers in extending the life of your mattress with a protective layer between your mattress and your sheets.

The good news — mattress protectors keep your mattress clean from dust mites, allergens, spilled drinks, pet or kiddo accidents, and sexy-time adventures. Just throw your protector in the wash and you’re good as new, with no lingering odor or dampness. The bad news — traditional mattress protectors are generally made from polyester, vinyl or PVC, phthalates, and butane rubber, and are treated with chemicals known to cause harmful off-gassing. 🤯

There is a safer way to protect your mattress. Our editors have researched, tested, and vetted the best organic cotton mattress protectors certified by GOTS or OEKO-TEX so everyone in the family rests safely and soundly. While you’re giving your bedroom an eco-friendly boost, check out our guides to organic mattressesorganic mattress toppers, and organic pillows.
