The Complete Eco Terra Mattress Review

If you are in a hurry, skip to the review summary at the bottom of this page. But it's better to read the complete review to get a clear picture of this mattress.

Eco Terra is a natural latex mattress made in the USA. It is plush mattress with a generous top layer of pressure-relieving latex foam and a springy base strengthened with a core of small, pocketed coils – making it ideal for sleepers who want a good balance of comfort and support.

The Eco Terra comes at a highly competitive price point when compared against other natural latex mattresses.

Plus, when you purchase the mattress through Eco Terra’s own website, you benefit from Eco Terra’s 90-day Sleep Trial – if you don’t love it after 30 days, you receive a full refund for up to 90 days after purchase.

Eco Terra Mattress

A Comfortable Night’s Sleep

The Eco Terra mattress is a plush mattress ideal for sleepers who like good pressure relief and the benefits of a 100 percent natural latex top layer.  The latex top layer is a generous three-inches deep and is made from 100 percent natural latex.

This natural latex provides a deep sensation of soft support while also delivering a cool sleeping temperature.  What’s more, the use of natural latex means you won’t suffer from nasty off-gassing when you purchase an Eco Terra mattress.

Latex is highly regarded for its environmental benefits.  People really value the fact latex is a natural product.  Unfortunately, the use of these natural ingredients does usually translate into a higher price point for natural latex products.

This is not the case with the Eco Terra range of mattresses.  Eco Terra scores well on affordability – despite being 100 percent natural latex, it comes in at a very reasonable price point and is exceptional value for a natural latex product.

Eco Terra uses a Talalay latex construction.  Unlike Dunlop latex, Talalay latex is vacuumed halfway through production, resulting in an airier texture – and this further optimizes the excellent temperature regulation of an Eco Terra mattress.

Under the three-inch natural Talalay latex top layer, the Eco Terra mattress comprises of hundreds of individually wrapped quantum coils with a wool fire barrier.  This is all topped off with an organic cotton cover.

The individually-wrapped-coil construction minimizes motion transfer – making the mattress perfect for couples who value a good night’s sleep with minimum disturbance.

The wool fire barrier means that an Eco Terra mattress meets all Federal and State flammability requirements without the use of harsh chemical flame retardants.  Finally, the organic cotton cover ensures a soft, comfortable and 100-percent-natural feel.

A Responsive Top Layer for Gentle Support

The Eco Terra mattress offers a medium level of support with the buoyancy that is characteristic of a latex mattress.  Under the soft give of the latex top layer, the individually wrapped coil core provides a substantial and secure sleep experience.

As well as minimizing motion transfer, the Eco Terra’s coil construction provides good side support.  This means you avoid that squishy collapse when you sit on the edge of the bed through the Eco Terra mattress’s reinforced edge support.

The majority of the fabric-encased coils in the Eco Terra Mattress are 16 gauge (for medium firmness).  However, there is an outer perimeter of 15 gauge coils (medium-firm) and this is what delivers the added edge support.

A Medium Firmness – As Favored by Most Sleepers

The Eco Terra’s medium mattress has a measured Indentation Load Deflection (ILD) rating of between 24 and 26 – putting it straight in the middle of the medium firmness favored by most sleepers.  This level of firmness provides a good level of support without being too hard on shoulders, hips or other pressure points – making it ideal for most sleepers, especially side sleepers and sleepers who transition through a variety of sleep positions over the course of a night’s sleep.

For stomach and back sleepers, who typically prefer a firmer mattress with a stronger level of support, Eco Terra does offer another option: its medium-firm mattress.

The medium-firm variant of the Eco Terra rates between 29 and 31 on the ILD scale to offer a deeper level of support, so can be a better choice if you do normally sleep on your back or stomach.

Total Comfort from Night One

The Eco Terra mattress arrives in a box which you can then unpack in the room in which you wish to use your mattress.  The mattress is then simply unrolled.  You don’t need to wait for it to expand, as you would with a foam mattress.

What’s more, the use of 100 percent natural latex ensures that when you unpack your Eco Terra mattress you aren’t troubled by the off-gassing that can accompany synthetic or foam products.

Instead of harsh chemicals, you will be greeted by the natural smell of natural latex.  This means can sleep on your Eco Terra mattress immediately after unboxing without feeling discomfort from any “just unboxed” smells.

Each Eco Terra mattress latex is made from natural latex harvested from rubber trees in Sri Lanka.  The natural latex is then shipped to the USA where the mattresses are made in Eco Terra’s Los Angeles workshops.

Natural latex is naturally anti-bacterial and inhospitable to dust mites so the choice to opt for a natural latex mattress rather than a synthetic latex mattress comes with environmental advantages – as well as the more pleasing smell of a natural product.

Natural Fibers for a Cool Night’s Sleep

One of the key strengths of the Eco Terra mattress is the use of natural fibers through every layer.  The aerated construction of the top layer of latex combined with the natural breathability of a natural latex product give a lovely cool sleeping experience.

This is enhanced by the organic cotton cover which ensures sleepers on an Eco Terra mattress enjoy the cool, crisp feel of natural cotton.

The coil construction beneath the latex layer also helps to improve air circulation through the mattress.  Eco Terra’s own research shows that, typically, this results in a 28 percent cooler sleep experience when compared with foam mattresses.

Individually Wrapped Coils Minimize Motion Transfer

In addition to the soft give and environmental credentials of the natural latex top layer, the second key feature of the Eco Terra mattress is the coil construction beneath.

An Eco Terra mattress has a deep core of specially-calibrated, fabric-encased coils beneath its natural latex top layer.  This individually-wrapped coil construction provides exceptional support.

Eco Terra says that this extra support helps to keep your spine in perfect alignment for a better night’s sleep.  The magic is in the calibration of the coils.  Eco Terra says that each coil is designed to provide just the right amount of support and buoyancy to keep your mattress comfortable and prevent dents, divots and uneven mattress wear.

The coil construction certainly eliminates partner disturbance caused by motion transfer – so you aren’t troubled by that “roll together” dip that can plague some cheaper mattresses.

Natural Latex’s Natural Elasticity

We’ve mentioned the hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and anti-dust-mite properties of natural latex.  Another important property of natural latex is its natural elasticity.

This is great news for anyone who is fed up of that “sinking feeling” you can experience with a memory foam mattress.  Instead, the Eco Terra’s top layer of natural latex does result in a springier feel to the overall feel of the mattress.

This is highly valued by couples who don’t want to compromise on the comfort and support of their mattress but would like to enjoy a little natural bounce in their bed.

Combined with the individually wrapped coils that are calibrated to distribute weight through the mattress without uneven mattress wear and we think the Eco Terra is a great choice for couples.

Buy Direct for a 90-Day Cooling Off Period

When you buy direct through Eco Terra’s own website, you can enjoy the full 90-day Sleep Trial that comes with an Eco Terra mattress.

As with any new mattress, it can take a little while to adapt your Eco Terra mattress.  After all, you have grown used to your old mattress!  Although many people love their Eco Terra mattress straight away, this is why Eco Terra do ask that you give the mattress a decent trial of 30 days when purchasing direct from them online.

If you don’t love your Eco Terra mattress after 30 days, you simply email or call Eco Terra using the details on its website and arrange for the mattress to be collected.  Once Eco Terra has collected the mattress from you, it will refund 100 percent of the purchase price – making the purchase of an Eco Terra mattress as close as you can get to completely risk free.

It’s worth noting that if you purchase your Eco Terra mattress through Amazon, this trial period is reduced.  Instead, Amazon purchasers are only entitled to a 30-day Sleep Trial.  Returns have to be arranged through Amazon and are subject to the terms and conditions listed on their site.

For this reason, if you value having a longer trial period for your mattress, we recommend purchasing your Eco Terra mattress direct from Eco Terra via its own website.

High Environmental Quality

We’ve already mentioned that the Eco Terra mattress uses natural latex.  This is important because natural latex is harvested in an extremely low-impact process, somewhat akin to the way syrup is harvested from maple trees.

The rubber trees are tapped and the sap is harvested from the living trees without damaging them – protecting the forests for further generations.  The material is then shipped to the USA, where the mattresses are handmade by Eco Terra’s expert craftsmen and women at Eco Terra’s own premises in Los Angeles.

It’s also worth noting that the organic cotton cover is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified.  This certification in the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers recognizes the ecological and social qualities of the material and its supply chain.  The GOTS “organic” label grade specifies the textile contains a minimum of 95 percent certified organic fibers.

Rather surprisingly, the other natural fiber you will find in your Eco Terra mattress is pure, natural wool.  This is used to create the necessary fire barrier so the mattress can comply with Federal and State flammability standards without having to rely on chemical flame retardants.  In fact, Eco Terra doesn’t use any chemical flame retardants in its Eco Terra Mattress.

Avoiding the possible harms that have been linked to the use of these chemical fire retardants is especially great peace of mind when you are purchasing a mattress for a child or for someone who already suffers from breathing difficulties.  And its another important reason why customers love the environmental credentials of their Eco Terra mattresses.

Extended Warranty Period

Further peace of mind when purchasing an Eco Terra mattress comes from its fifteen-year warranty period – so you know, if you decide to keep your mattress after the 90-day Sleep Trial, you will have at least 15 years of normal use with it.

If you have to return the mattress within this 15-year period because of a manufacturing defect you are entitled to a repair or replacement.  Full terms and conditions of this warranty can be found on the Eco Terra website.

Differing Views about the Ease of Return

There are different ways to purchase an Eco Terra mattress: either direct on the Eco Terra website, via Amazon or through a local dealer.  How you purchase your mattress will affect the length of your Sleep Trial and the returns policies.

As a result, we recommend that before you purchase you read the terms and conditions carefully and decide which method of purchase will suit you best.  If you are worried, it is easy to call Eco Terra direct with any questions you may have.

Eco Terra’s Recommended Bed Bases

Eco Terra recommends that you use your Eco Terra mattress with a bed base. Not doing so can invalidate your warranty.

Eco Terra recommends laying your Eco Terra mattress on a foundation and box spring, flat platform or slatted base – giving you a wide choice of bed frames to choose from.  You can also use your Eco Terra mattress with an adjustable bed base.

Good Value for Money – Especially for Natural Latex

Although you can buy cheap foam mattresses for less than an Eco Terra mattress, you aren’t going to get the same quality sleep experience or the environmental benefits with a cheaper product.

Natural latex is a premium material and you will usually find yourself paying premium prices for a natural latex mattress. By comparison with other natural latex products, the Eco Terra range is exceptionally competitively priced – you’re in the price realms of high-end memory foam rather than other natural latex mattresses.

For this reason, we think the Eco Terra is an excellent purchase if buying a natural product that delivers a good sleep experience is important to you.

Customers Praise the Eco Terra’s Comfort

Reviews online praise the Eco Terra mattress’s combination of softness and support.

Comments include:

  • Customers praise the supportive qualities of natural latex, particularly in terms of giving good back support.
  • Many people think that the combination of natural latex top layer and sprung coil base offers the best of both worlds.
  • The great value price point of the Eco Terra range of natural latex mattresses was also a surprise to some people – and greatly appreciated.
  • The complete lack of off-gassing is a big bonus for many customers.
  • The Eco Terra offers a good balance of support and comfort.
  • Some customers opted for a firm mattress thinking they might need to add an additional topper, but found it comfortable as it was. On the other hand, others worried that a firm wouldn’t offer enough support for stomach sleeping but found it very comfortable.  From these comments, it seems that there is flexibility in the firmness option you choose – the natural give of the latex top layer is very forgiving.
  • We are just over a year and a half and still loving our mattress. So far still no body dents or sagging.
  • Some customers were so happy with their purchase they returned multiple times to report how much they were still enjoying their Eco Terra mattress.

On the downside, some reviewers who purchased through Amazon rather than purchasing direct through the Eco Terra website have raised questions about the sizing of the mattresses.  The sizes are clearly stated on the Eco Terra website but are worth listing here.

  • Twin = 38 x 75 x 11”
  • Twin XL = 38 x 80 x 11”
  • Full = 54 x 75 x 11”
  • Queen = 60 x 80 x 11”
  • King = 76 x 80 x 11”
  • California King = 72 x 84 x 11”

Before purchasing any mattress, we recommend you check the sizing of your frame and the specified mattress sizing to ensure a good fit.  This way, you can avoid any unnecessary returns.

Pay Online with PayPal

When you order direct through the Eco Terra website, you simply select the mattress size you require then go to checkout.  At present, only PayPal is supported as a payment method.

However, Eco Terra does offer an option to spread the cost of the purchase via an agreement with Klarna.  Simply select the “Slice It. Pay over time with Klarna” option at the checkout.  You then receive a confirmation email from Klarna, confirming the credit agreement and you will be required to make monthly payments over 12 months.

Promotional APR runs at 9.99 percent over 12 months, or non-promotional purchases have a standard APR of 19.99 percent.

Eco Terra Mattress Review

Unpack and Sleep!

The Eco Terra arrives boxed.  We recommend you transport the box to the room in which you wish to use the mattress before unpacking.  The mattress is then simply unrolled and moved into place onto your bedframe.

Unlike foam alternatives, the Eco Terra mattress does not require time to rest before you can test it out for yourself.  Plus, the natural latex and fabric wrapped coil construction mean you won’t be bothered by an off-gassing either – making it a pleasure to sleep on your Eco Terra mattress right from night one.

One thing to be aware of: the box will be larger than if you were purchasing a memory foam alternative.  This is inevitable because the Eco Terra’s latex and coil construction doesn’t lend itself to compression in the same way as foam.

If you are worried about the weight, here’s the specifications from the Eco Terra website:

  • Twin = 59lbs
  • Twin XL = 63lbs
  • Full = 84lbs
  • Queen = 100lbs
  • King = 127lbs
  • California King = 126lbs

You can find several videos on the Eco Terra website demonstrating how easy it is to unwrap – unroll – and enjoy.

Care of Your Eco Terra Mattress

Eco Terra are clear that you don’t need to flip or rotate your Eco Terra mattress in order to prolong its life.  There are no clauses in a warranty demanding that you rotate the mattress.

The specially-calibrated, fabric-encased coil construction helps to ensure the durability of the mattress – avoiding problems like divots and uneven wear over the long term.

In fact, Eco Terra claims that this makes its mattresses 26 percent more durable when compared against mattresses of foam construction.  Presumably it is this confidence that lies behind their longer-than-most fifteen-year warranty.

Recommended for Great Cushioned Support

Increasingly, consumers are interested in the environmental credentials of their mattresses – not only for the benefit of nature, but for their own health.  If having a mattress which heavily uses natural materials in its construction is important to you, the Eco Terra mattress is a great choice.

Some of the best points of the Eco Terra mattress are:

  • Comfort and peace of mind that comes from investing in a natural product
  • Extremely competitive price point, especially for a mattress made using all-natural latex
  • Its winning combination of springy coils and cushioning natural latex top layer offers the best of both worlds
  • The Eco Terra delivers ideal support with a little natural bounce
  • Great customer reviews give confidence to purchasing decisions
  • Generous 90-day Sleep trial
  • Extended 15-year warranty

This makes the Eco Terra mattress a great choice for anyone who values a soft night’s sleep without compromising on the materials used in their mattress or the support their mattress delivers.
