I reeeeaaalllly wanted them to be green

but no, SUPERGREEN washed ---

if you want their products you can get them for almost 1/2 the cost at Walmart.com, also a few of the products can be found at HeartlandAmerica.com. (all of my price quotes are based on a queen size) also "whypaymoreshoppe" seller on eBay has excellent prices.

Keetsa's 10" Cloud = $1044.00
Walmart's 10"" Aerus Natural Memory Foam Mattress =$529.88
Heartland's Theratouch Memory Mattress =$424.94
"whypaymoreshoppe" Classic 10" = $459.99 (free shipping)

Keetsa's contour pillow $69.99
Walmart's Eco-Friendly Memory Foam Contour Pillow $27.88

Keetsa's metal bedframe: $229.99
Bedzine (same owner as Keetsa) metal bedframe $174.99
Heartland's Smartbase frame: $109.98 (incl. shipping)
Walmart's Smartbase frame: $99.99

Facts:

Keetsa's products are made a manufacture in China, Zinus (yes they have an office in Pleasanton). Zinus holds the patent on "Mattress-in-a-box".

Keetsa is not a mattress company - they are a marketing company.

Many vendors carry the 'non green tea' mattress-in-a-box if you don't want to pay $$$$ for literal green washing. (search "mattress-in-a-box)

If you use a mattress, pad and sheets --- and wash them, you don't need the green tea to 'freshen' your mattress.

If Keetsa were truly concerned about the environment and their customers health they would post the chemical material declaration sheet of the mattress, as well as the VOC testing results.

Keetsa does not give you your $$ back if you are unhappy - just a store credit MINUS 15% and $100 mattress disposal charge????

Keetsa's owner also sells non green tea mattress (and the metal frame) for much less than at Keetsa on a site call Bedzine.com, if you want to give your business to an icky marketing genius...shall we call her Dr. Evil?

Why did I do all of this research? I hate being lied to --- and I think it is gross that companies like Keetsa are taking advantage of consumers trying to make a more healthy choice.

For budget natural latex (read truly non-toxic) check out:

Organicgrace.com ($975, and they are in Garberville)
Livefortomorrow.com ($899, certified organic/natural)

More expensive organic and natural latex:

TheNaturalSleepstore.com
AHappyPlanet.com (they are on Irving Street)
Eco-Terric.com (they are based in Montana, but have a store on Polk)
Flobeds.com (Fort Bragg)
SavvyRest.com (very high customer service rating)
MyFoam.com (SF and San Rafael)
SleepWorks.com (Berkeley)
GreenFusioDesigncenter... (San Anselmo)
