Eco Terra Mattress Review - Worth The Money

Review by Andy David
Mattress expert Updated Jan 2020

Summary

  • Eco Terra is best for average and heavy weight back and stomach sleepers. Lightweight sleepers and strict side sleepers sometimes find the mattress too firm.
  • The mattress is a great value and costs $999 for queen-size. This is more affordable than most online competitors. The price is also cheaper than latex brands sold in physical stores.
  • Eco Terra is a natural latex mattress. But the mattress does not have the GOLS standard to certify it as 100% organic. More expensive brands like Avocado Green and Luxury Bliss have this strong certification.

Is Eco Terra worth the money?

Eco Terra is one of the most affordable hybrid latex mattresses on the market. At $999 for a queen-size, it is cheaper than most similar brands.

The mattress is made in the USA from eco-friendly, non-toxic materials. This includes natural latex, organic cotton and wool.

Eco Terra is a great value and worth the money. People on a low budget who want natural materials will find Eco Terra hard to beat.

How does it compare to other brands?

Eco Terra has a similar hybrid design and construction to competitors like Avocado Green and Luxury Bliss. The durability is similar to many online and in-store brands.

The mattress has a few strong certifications, such as GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified latex.

Although the latex is natural, it is not 100% organic. Shoppers who want GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) organic latex need to pay more.

Avocado Green and Luxury Bliss are good hybrid latex alternatives. They have 100% organic latex, cotton, and wool. But they cost $1249+.

Who is the mattress best for?

  • Back & Stomach Sleepers – Eco Terra’s hybrid design gives back and stomach sleepers great support. Most back sleepers like medium firmness that contours to the lumbar region to prevent lower back pain. Stomach sleepers stay afloat and enjoy perfect spine alignment on the medium-firm.
  • CouplesCouples enjoy good support in the middle and around the edge of the mattress. The motion isolation is decent for couples who toss and turn. Natural latex and pocket coils give good response for sexual activity.
  • Heavy People – The mattress is a good choice for heavy people on a low budget. Natural latex is more durable than memory foam while strong pocket coils keep heavy sleepers afloat. Medium-firm is best for heavy weight sleepers.
  • Hot Sleepers – Hot sleepers will find Eco Terra a great mattress for cooling. The hybrid design ensures good airflow to prevent trapped heat. Natural latex is temperature neutral and never overheats.

Who should avoid this mattress?

  • Strict Side Sleepers – Some side sleepers find Eco Terra too firm, even on the medium firmness option. Natural latex has a firmer feel than memory foam and sometimes does not give enough pressure relief. Side sleepers who want pain relief for the hips and shoulders should consider a memory foam bed.
  • People Who Like Memory Foam – Natural latex has a springy feel that reacts quickly to pressure. People who like the close body-hugging feel of memory foam should avoid Eco Terra. It will be too bouncy and responsive.

Back Pain Relief

  • Back sleepers find good comfort on both the medium and medium-firm option. The mattress contours to the lumbar region to stop lower back pain. Heavy back sleepers should choose the medium-firm option for better support.
  • Side sleepers like how the hybrid design promotes perfect body alignment. This keeps the spine in a neutral position to prevent back pain. Lightweight side sleepers may need a softer memory foam mattress.
  • Stomach sleepers benefit from pocket coils that stop the body from sinking too far down. The mattress keeps the hips of stomach sleepers afloat to prevent back pain. Heavy stomach sleepers also get back pain relief on Eco Terra.

Side Sleepers

  • The medium firmness option works best for side sleepers. This is about 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Natural latex gives decent pressure relief for the hips and shoulders of average and heavy side sleepers.
  • Lightweight side sleepers often find natural latex too firm as a material. Some lightweight sleepers get aches and pains in the hips and shoulders. A memory foam mattress like Nectar can work better for lightweight people.
  • Heavy side sleepers get good spine alignment due to the pocket coils. The mattress gives a great mix of pressure relief and back support. This minimizes backache and ensures less pain for the hips and shoulders.

Couples

  • Eco Terra is a good value and supportive mattress for couples. The medium firmness option works well for most people who sleep with a partner. Heavy weight couples get better support on the medium-firm option.
  • The motion isolation is decent and minimizes vibrations well. People who toss and turn will not disturb their partner. But better motion isolation can be found on memory foam mattresses like Nectar.
  • The hybrid design of Eco Terra provides good edge support. This makes the bed feel bigger for couples who like to spread out. Couples who want stronger edge support should choose the medium-firm option.
  • Natural latex is a good choice for couples due to its responsive feel. Couples can move around on the mattress without feeling “stuck in the mud”. Sexually active couples will enjoy good bounce on the latex and pocket coils.

Heavy People

  • Eco Terra provides good comfort and support for heavy people over 250 lbs. There is a good mix of back support and pressure relief. Natural latex and pocket coils keep heavy sleepers afloat to prevent back pain.
  • The mattress is made in the USA and has good durability. Natural latex is long-lasting and gives heavy people great support over many years. The mattress is more durable than memory foam mattresses of a similar price.

Cooling

  • The hybrid design of Eco Terra provides great cooling for hot sleepers. Few mattresses give sleepers better cooling at this price point. The pocket coils and natural latex provide good airflow to keep hot sleepers cool.
  • Latex allows people to sleep more “on top” of the mattress. This is different from memory foam that sinks down and slowly contours to the body. Staying afloat prevents trapped heat and works better for hot sleepers.

FAQs

Eco Terra is a good mattress for back pain. Most body weights get good lumbar support and spine alignment. Some people may prefer a softer firmness.

Rated & Review by

Shoppers wanting a great value, natural latex mattress should consider Eco Terra. The hybrid design works well for most body weights and sleeping styles. But shoppers who want certified 100% organic latex should choose Avocado Green or Luxury Bliss.

Great Value Price – Eco Terra is a great value hybrid latex mattress at $999 for queen-size. It is more affordable than nearly all other online latex brands.

100% Natural Materials – The mattress is made from natural latex that is hypoallergenic and non-toxic. But the latex is not certified as 100% organic.
