This JH person has spent the better part of a day of their life emailing and posting all over the internet and really has nothing to share except propoganda. As the Director of Keetsa, I would like to share a bit with the readers here....

SUPERGREEN WASHING!
SUPERGREEN washed ---

if you want this toxic product for 1/2 the cost - Walmart (dot com), also a few of the products can be found at HeartlandAmerica. (all of my price quotes are based on a queen size) also "whypaymoreshoppe" seller on eBay has excellent prices (I am not affiliated)

Keetsa's 10" Cloud = $949.00 queen

Walmart's 10"" Aerus Natural Memory Foam Mattress =$529.88 - Not produced by Zinus.
Heartland's Theratouch Memory Mattress =$424.94 - Not produced by Zinus.
"whypaymoreshoppe" Classic 10" = $459.99 (free shipping) - Not produced by Zinus.

Keetsa's contour pillow $69.99
Walmart's Eco-Friendly Memory Foam Contour Pillow $27.88 - Not produced by Zinus.

Keetsa's metal bedframe: $229.99
Bedzine (same owner as Keetsa) metal bedframe $174.99 - This does not include the shipping cost, which is added on when customer is checking out.
Heartland's Smartbase frame: $109.98 (incl. shipping)
- Has different structure and lower quality specifications.
Walmart's Smartbase frame: $99.99 - Has different structure and lower quality specifications.

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". - Zinus is our supplier in China.

Keetsa is not a mattress company - they are a marketing company. - Not true. We are registered as importer, retailer and wholesaler for mattress business.

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) - Keetsa carries unique products with Green Tea/Cedar oil in the foam and natural fabrications treated with natural Silver for antimicrobial. Keetsa also has just introduced a new bio foam that consists of 12% Castor Bean Oil with no detected VOC's, and is introducing a natural latex mattress by year's end. Keetsa continues to innovate great new green products.

If you use a mattress, pad and sheets --- and wash them, you don't need the green tea to 'freshen' your mattress. - Green tea extract is embedded in the foam, in the foaming process. It is impossible to have a foam in green tea or any other water based element, to maintain its resilience. Mattress inner foam spring, and the outer cover cannot be washed. Washing mattress pad and sheets is not enough to keep the mattress clean.

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. Any customer can come into our stores and ask for a VOC report.

Keetsa does not give you your $$ back if you are unhappy - just a store credit MINUS 15% and $100 mattress disposal charge???? - There is no store credit. All refundable amounts are credited to the customer's credit cards. To keep our product retail prices low, we do not build customer return costs in the prices. We do not resell returned mattresses, so there is $100 mattress recycling fee that we ask our customers to pay. Again, these prices are not built into our retail prices, because we don't agree that one happy customer should be paying a part of the return cost of an unhappy customer.

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 - Bedzine.com is operated with shipping cost charged separately, where as Keetsa.com products are offered at "free shipping".

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. - Most of claims made above and products compared are not valid.

Please keep in mind that we continue to strive to find new and inventive ways to improve our products and services. Thank you for your continued support of Keetsa! If anyone has any questions we will soon be posting this information on our website. You can also direct them to our certification from CoOp America.
