Who Do We Think Matches With Eco Terra?
- Classic Hybrid Shoppers – The upper latex layer should provide soothing pressure relief and a body-hugging contour. Shoppers should also experience sturdy support once the coils become activated.
- Eco-conscious Folks – The cover features certified organic cotton, along with a natural wool fire barrier. The 100% natural Talalay latex is made from tree-tapped and sustainable sources. Along with multiple organic certifications, the materials are also free from polyurethane and toxins.
- Sleepers Who Overheat – The airy nature of the Talalay latex, combined with the individually pocketed coils, should promote airflow. The wool inside the cover should promote temperature regulation, further reducing the possibility of overheating.
Possible Eco Terra Complaints:
- It doesn’t have a memory foam feel. – The materials in this mattress should have more bounce and spring than a classic memory foam bed, but it doesn’t have that deep cradling feel. Sleepers should still be able to enjoy pressure relief and contouring and will feel more “on” than “in” the bed.
Construction: What’s inside Eco Terra?
Eco Terra is a latex and coil hybrid, bed-in-a-box product. The cover boasts certified organic cotton and a wool fire barrier that should promote temperature regulation. This mattress is available in two levels of firmness: Medium and Medium-Firm.
This mattress stands 11 inches in height.
- The first layer holds 3 inches of Talalay Latex. This material should be responsive and should offer soothing pressure relief.
- The base layer consists of 8-inch Supportive Fabric-Encased Steel Coils. This coil system features individually wrapped coils to help reduce motion transfer. The springs should compress or pushback depending on your body weight.
- The perimeter promotes enhanced edge support due to slightly stronger Steel Coils running around the edges of the bed.
First Impression: How Does It Feel?
When you lie on the cover, you should notice a plush, soft, and temperature-neutral feel. The coils should compress under more concentrated areas, like the hips and shoulders, allowing for deeper sinkage in these areas. Areas that put less pressure on the bed, like the head and feet, should float on top of this mattress as the coils should stand firm beneath these body parts.
The upper comfort layer should provide a contouring effect that promotes pressure relief. Shoppers should notice solid bounce from the coil system while the latex should respond quickly. This should allow combination sleepers to reposition freely.
Firmness Scale: 5.5/10 (Medium), 7/10 (Medium-Firm)
When you’re shopping for a bed, one of the most important features is pressure relief. If the materials are too firm or inflexible, pressure and pain can develop under heavier areas like the shoulders and hips. This can lead to tossing and turning that robs you of restful sleep.
Many people assume memory materials are the best for relieving pressure, but natural latex can get the job done too. Eco Terra features 100% natural Talalay latex which is even softer than Dunlop latex that is used in many similar types of beds. The Medium model should be a great fit for those seeking a gentle cradle with contouring and relief.
On the flip side of pressure relief is support, or the ability to keep sleepers from sinking all the way through the bed. This is especially important for lumbar support and promoting a neutral spinal alignment.
Latex is a material that shines in both pressure relief and support. While it allows for contouring, it doesn’t have the sinking feeling of memory foam. Eco Terra pairs this with fabric-encased Quantum coils for pushback support and buoyancy.
Multiple Firmness Options
Rather than offering a “one-size-fits-all” approach, Eco Terra knows that sleeper’s needs are unique. That’s why this mattress is available in a Medium and Medium-Firm feel so shoppers can choose the option that suits them best.
Optional White Glove Delivery
For an added fee, shoppers can choose to have in-home delivery and set-up.
Eco Terra ships rolled and compressed in a box straight to your doorstep. Once you get it to your bedroom, all you have to do is unwrap, unroll, and enjoy.
Unlike memory foam materials that can trap warmth and cause sleepers to overheat, latex is a temperature neutral material. Cotton and wool are capable of wicking away moisture that can contribute to warmth while pocketed coils allow for airflow throughout.
Exceptional Edge Support
Sleepers should notice a solid, consistent level of support all the way across the mattress when lying down thanks to steel springs around the borders to promote enhanced edge support. The medium-firm version should provide enhanced stability that should allow shoppers to sit on the edge with less compression than the standard medium option.
Great Motion Isolation
The coils and latex should provide some spring and bounce. However, the plush cover and fabric wrapped around the coils should help to absorb movement, helping to reduce motion transfer.
Latex and coils are more buoyant materials that can help with repositioning for combination sleepers and getting in and out of bed. This is also a bonus for couples or those with limited mobility.
All of the materials used in Eco Terra come from natural sources and have multiple organic certifications, including OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, 100% natural Talalay latex from tree-tapped and sustainable sources, GOTS organic and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified wool, and GOTS organic certified cotton.
Adjustable Base Compatible
The mattress can be used on any solid surface, including adjustable frames, slatted bases, or the floor.
Handcrafted in the USA
This product is certified to contain low VOC emissions and is safe for use by children under 3 years old.
Both the wool and cotton in the cover are certified organic materials.

Sleepers seeking a mix of pushback and pressure relief should enjoy this eco-friendly hybrid mattress. Two different comfort options should allow shoppers of all position preferences to find a feel that works for them.
Most side sleepers should enjoy adequate pressure relief from the individually pocketed coils as they compress beneath their weight. The upper latex material should provide a plush feel that suits this type of sleeper. While both models should offer pressure relief, the Medium is likely to be the best fit for most side sleepers.
Back sleepers may choose between the medium option or the medium-firm, depending on their needs. If sinkage is a concern, the firmer option should promote even weight distribution and should prevent the coils from compressing too much under the hips. The contouring nature of the latex should provide ample lumbar support.
Stomach sleepers may require a firm level of pushback to prevent too much sinkage in the hips, especially if they are significantly heavier than average. The medium-firm version should work well for these shoppers.
Combination sleepers who frequently change positions in the night should be very pleased with the bounce and versatility of this bed. The materials are quick to respond and offer a good balance between pressure relief and support.
Eco Terra should tick a lot of boxes for couples looking for an eco-friendly bed. It performs well in areas like cooling, motion isolation, edge support, and bounce. Having two firmness options should give couples the flexibility to choose the desired firmness that suits them best.
There is no specific weight limit for this product. The coils inside this hybrid should support most shoppers, but if you have significantly higher weight concerns, the medium-firm model’s enhanced support should work well. Features like cooling and long-term durability of materials should also make this a great choice for heavier folks.
Individuals weighing less than 120 pounds often experience most beds as too firm. The Medium option should provide enough pressure relief for stomach and back sleepers who are on the lighter side, but some side sleepers may prefer something a little softer.
If you are in the market for an eco-friendly hybrid, this bed’s mix of pressure relief and support, along with its bounce and easy repositioning should land this item on your must-have list. Two comfort versions allow different sleep types to choose the model that suits their preferences. Eco-conscious shoppers looking for affordable luxury should be very pleased with this option.
