    Topsham based mattress manufacturer Naturalmat were honoured at the 19th Devon Environmental Business Initiative (DEBI) Awards Ceremony, which took place at the Met Office. Naturalmat were selected as finalists in the Environmental Goods and Services Large Business Category by the DEBI judges. Television presenter Dick Strawbridge was the star attraction at the event and presented Naturalmat with their deserving certificate, as well as a bottle of locally produced sparkling wine from Pebblebed Vineyards. Naturalmat are an innovative company who create handmade organic mattresses from natural fibres and fully sustainable materials, some of the organic components used include coir, cotton and Soil Association certified organic wool. Naturalmat mattresses are supportive, anti bed bug, anti dust mite and hypoallergenic. Naturalmat customers are able to get the best night’s sleep possible, as not only are their mattresses incredibly comfortable, but customers can also rest with a clear conscience knowing that their mattress has been created with minimal environmental impact.

    One of the key components within Naturalmat mattresses is coir, which comes from the only certified organic coir plantation in the world. All coconuts used are grown organically and in an environmentally responsible way. No pesticides or chemical fertilisers are used, as Naturalmat prefer to use organic compost to encourage a sustainable farming program.
    The organic lambswool used within mattresses is cleaned on the edge of Dartmoor using water from the River Dart. The water is then filtered, cleaned and returned to the river without any environmental impact. The dirt is washed out of the wool and then goes into an anaerobic digester to make organic compost.

    ‘We strive to be great ambassadors for the county and are thrilled to receive recognition from DEBI. The judges have seen that we create a handmade high value product that has been made with minimal energy resources and environmental impact. We have taken extra time and effort to create a sustainable item and this has ultimately led to our success at this ceremony. We are very proud of our Devon roots and strive to promote this beautiful county to the best of our ability to our customers located all over the world,’ said Marie Taylor Naturalmat’s Online Marketing Manager.
