Barry A. Cik, Naturpedic Organic Mattresses

2014 : Rising Star Award

As the founder and Technical Director of Naturepedic Organic Mattresses, Barry A. Cik has a lifelong interest in preserving the environment for all future generations. A professionally trained environmental engineer, Cik combines his passion for improving our quality of life with his technical knowledge.

Horrified to discover the state of the baby mattress industry when he shopped for a crib mattress for a grandchild, Cik was determined to create mattress products that were environmentally safe. Working with his sons, he established Naturepedic in 2003. Since that time, Naturepedic has expanded from a small family business to a nationally known company. Moreover, Cik strongly believes in being certified to the world’s most stringent quality and environmental standards, and demonstrates to other companies that such goals are attainable. All Naturepedic mattresses have been certified to meet the highly sought-after Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Naturepedic this year became the first GOTS certified organic mattress manufacturer to have all of its products attain Level IV certification by the Specialty Sleep Association.
