Go Rest mattresses, toppers and Pillows have GOLS Certification

 

What is GOLS?

Control Union Certifications is an independent certification organization that has pioneered the first global standard for organic latex known as The Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS). This standard is highly regarded, especially in the sleep products sector. GOLS outlines the requirements for latex products made from organic raw materials, as well as for material from non-organic origins.

"The standard addresses criteria for natural rubber from certified organic plantations (USDA NOP or EU) that is processed at manufacturing units. To achieve GOLS certification, a product must contain more than 95% of certified organic raw material.

 

The GOLS standard features permissible limits for harmful substances, emission test requirements and polymer and filler percentages. Rubber plantations as well as processing units up to the final retailer are certified according to the standard. By using transaction certificates at every sale of a product in the supply chain, traceability from the plantation to the final retailer is ensured." Essentially, it is how you can be sure that the organic latex you are getting is actually organic.

 

There are a number of benefits of knowing that your organic latex comes from a company certified by the GOLS, Global Organic Latex Standard. Here are 6 direct ways that GOLS benefits our customers, and why we're proud that our organic latex mattresses and toppers are certified by this system. 

  1. The GOLS standard covers all of the various aspects of material supply, including the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of all textiles and materials, certifying that they are made from at least 95% certified organic raw materials.
  2. GOLS ensures that the latex that you sleep on very night, is certified natural and without impurities, chemicals and harmful or noxious agents.
  3. GOLS relies on a comprehensive dual system in order to check the individual compliance with all the relevant criteria which consists of both on-site auditing and residue testing.
  4. GOLS is recognized as a positive, world renowned ethical choice, both among consumers and producers and is the most comprehensive type of certification in view of environmental issues.
  5. GOLS provides continuous and comprehensive quality control and certification system from rubber tree forest to customer. It ensures that on the way through many steps of production to the finished latex slab that it is truly made from organically sourced latex.
  6. GOLS certified latex is much more than just a material which is made organically. Organic latex mattresses and toppers are made from certified latex which are traced throughout the lifecycle of producing the end product from the forest to the final organic latex mattress.

 

How you benefit

"GOLS establishes a clear path and procedure on the route from field or farmer level to the certified organic latex product manufacturer. Among other factors, manufacturers that are given approval to produce organic products under the GOLS logo have to follow mandatory social and environmental regulations. This places indirect responsibility for social and environmental issues on the final consumer."

 

Having GOLS certification on our Go Rest organic latex mattresses, toppers and  individual latex components ensures our customers that we are taking the extra steps to make sure our products are both healthy for the environment and our customers. We are proud of our GOLS certification is it's a realistic solution in making sure our products are both sustainable and safe for everyday use.
