Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc., the leading crib mattress manufacturer in the USA, announced today that its entire family of crib mattress brands is now GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified, helping consumers minimize their chemical exposure and create healthier indoor environments for their children.
All Kolcraft, Sealy, Stearns & Foster, and Contours brand crib mattresses have demonstrated compliance with the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute’s stringent chemical emissions standards following rigorous scientific testing. The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, part of the UL Global Network, is a not-for-profit, third-party organization dedicated to protecting human health and improving indoor air quality by certifying products for low chemical emissions.
“We are proud of our history of producing superior-quality crib mattresses for families. Ensuring that each and every mattress is GREENGUARD Certified signifies that we are committed to ensuring a healthier indoor environment for children,” said Tom Koltun, President of Kolcraft. “It will also help provide peace of mind for parents who can feel confident that their children are sleeping on a laboratory tested, healthier, high-quality crib mattress.”
Parents are inundated with safety information about children’s products today, and since infants spend so much of their early life sleeping on a crib mattress, GREENGUARD Certification is one way parents can be sure that they are making the right choice. Kolcraft is a third-generation, family-owned and operated juvenile product manufacturer that has been a leader in the design and manufacturing of some of the best infant and toddler crib mattresses that parents have depended on since 1946.
”We applaud Kolcraft for going above and beyond marketplace requirements and demonstrating not only leadership, but also a true commitment to reducing chemical exposure in the home,” says Henning Bloech, GREENGUARD’s executive director. “GREENGUARD Certification is a rigorous, third-party process, so by choosing GREENGUARD Certified crib mattresses, parents can be confident that they’re making a better purchasing decision for their children.”
Kolcraft and Sealy brand crib mattresses can be found at some of America’s favorite retailers including Wal-Mart and Babies R Us. Look for the GREENGUARD Certified mark on Kolcraft, Sealy, Stearns & Foster, and Contours crib mattresses and find them online at www.kolcraft.com or www.greenguard.org.
