The TFS Waterproof Cotton Mattress Protector comes from cotton grown from non-GMO organic cotton grown using sustainable crop rotation. Their fabric printing is done with low-impact fiber reactive or natural dyes, water based inks and pigments. When you purchase this organic cotton product, you are benefiting not only the environment but the hard work of the farmers who use sustainable methods. Since the cotton used is also a Fair Trade product, the farmers who grow it are paid fair prices above the market rate to match the value of the fruits of their labour.
While the fabric is organic cotton, the waterproof polyurethane lamination is not organic. However, polyurethane is the cleanest, safest, and most durable water barrier available on the market today. It is 100% waterproof, breathable, inert, free of VOCs & PVC, burns clean, and does not off gas or leach chemicals. At this time it is impossible to create a fully organic mattress protector that is also 100% waterproof and can withstand regular use and laundering over a long period of time.
