I’ve unboxed the Eco Terra mattress and given it a full review below. We were sent a queen size medium firmness Eco Terra natural hybrid mattress. It’s a more economical hybrid mattress that is made with organic materials and that uses less chemicals in its construction.

Unboxing the Eco Terra Mattress
This bed was made in the USA and I noticed NO smell right out of the box. When a mattress or pillow is made with chemicals you get offgassing that is immediate and that you can smell for days and sometimes weeks. As someone who is sensitive to this, I notice the lack of it! No headache and watering eyes that give me a feeling that I haven’t slept in a few days.
Eco Terra comes in an undecorated (plain) box. Once taken out of the box you’ll see an off-white top cover with gray lines. There are small circles stitched into the cover. That stitching has a specific purple that we’ll get into further in the review.
It has tan sides and once again, the stitching. These details are more expensive to make and distinguish the Eco Terra from other brands. One noticeable difference is that it doesn’t have a logo stitched into the mattress.
Watch the video and see how fast this mattress opens!
In the unboxing video you can see how it popped right out of the box and was really fast to unroll. And it gets right to its full height – no wait time before you can sleep on it.
Eco Terra Mattress Review
As of now, Eco Terra just has one mattress, their natural hybrid. It’s advertised to be:
ECO-FRIENDLY: NATURAL MATERIALS, NON-TOXIC
NO SYNTHETICS: POLYURETHANE-FREE
MADE IN THE USA: HANDCRAFTED IN CALIFORNIA
RISK-FREE: 90-NIGHT TRIAL, FREE SHIPPING & RETURNS
Eco Terra uses certified organic wool and organic cotton. You’ll see from the tag that besides the pocketed coils, it’s made of latex foam rubber and wool. Natural latex is made from sap from the rubber tree, not petroleum. They whip the sap into a froth, then bake it into a foam. There are usually drill holes through the latex, which comes from the mold.
Here’s the product tag:

No Memory Foam in this Mattress
Now latex has some bounce to it and this mattress is no different. Combined with the springs you’re not going to sink into this bed a lot. But you can move around easier without that feeling of getting stuck. This mattress doesn’t have memory foam in it. This helps it sleep cooler than foam beds typically sleep.
Generally speaking, latex sleeps cooler than memory foam mattresses because you don’t sink inside of it and form a crevice where your body heat can build up over time and get too warm.
Construction of the Eco Terra Mattress
Made with a top layer organic cotton cover. Since this is sewn on with these little circles, it can’t be removed and washed. So as always, we recommend that you get a waterproof mattress protector before you sleep on it. The idea behind the sewing on the cover is that instead of using toxic glues to hold the materials together (like the wool and cotton), they are sewn into the mattress.
As of when this article was written in May 2020, the Eco Terra mattress website doesn’t have anything other than the mattress (no sheets, pillows, protectors, etc). It’s important to always use a waterproof mattress protector. We recommend the Coop waterproof mattress protector. It helps keep dust mites, bacteria and mold from getting inside your mattress and breaking down the materials. Plus it’s just more hygienic.
TOP AND SIDES
There is organic wool stitched into the middle and on the sides.
Then there are 3 inches of talalay latex.
The last layer is supportive Fabric-Encased Coils that reduce motion transfer. There’s 1057 coil count on the queen size. They use 16 gauge (medium) metal on the coils. The outer perimeter is a bit stiffer – 15 gauge coils (medium-firm) for added edge support.
Just remember, the lower the number, the firmer the coils. This combination offers a very comfortable mattress with edge support they say is 26% more durable than a foam mattress.
What to Put your Eco Terra Mattress On
No box springs are needed for your Eco Terra mattress. It will work on an adjustable base, we recommend this Malouf adjustable base. It has massage and independent head incline among other features and has a 20 year warranty.
The Eco Terra natural latex mattress can also be put on foundations, platform bed and slatted bases. You just need a frame that can handle the weight of the bed and anyone sleeping on it.
In the video, we have the Eco Terra bed on a Keetsa gold brushed steel frame. It can support up to 2,000 lbs. It’s minimalist and stylish plus it’s not too low to the ground. It has a 11.5” clearance under the bed and you can add a headboard to it.
