Organic Bedding made in USA with Renewable Energy

As we celebrate Earth Day, here is a great story about a U.S. company that is making a great product in the U.S.A. and doing so with 100 percent renewable energy.

CozyPure, based in Norfolk, VA, is a manufacturer of organic bedding including mattresses, blankets, pillows and sheets. The company has been named among the Top 100 companies in the Green Power Partnership for their investments in on-site renewable energy to power their manufacturing facility.

The CozyPure on-site power system consists of solar panels, including some that also serve as the building’s awnings, and 2 wind turbines (a Skystream and a Wind Spire). With installation of the on-site system in 2011, the facility now generates all of its electricity from on-site wind and solar. 

As the company notes, “CozyPure is now what’s called a "Net Zero Energy Building", and there aren't too many commercial buildings that can make that claim. In fact, we're one of the only green organic bedding manufacturers who has made the commitment to make our products with 100% renewable energy. First, we made sure we were highly energy-efficient with appliances, lighting and geothermal HVAC, R-25+ insulation, and reflection foil in our ceilings and walls. Next, we designed a system that generates both solar and wind to generate power that would meet and exceed our energy needs. The system was completed in early 2011, and we've been using zero electricity from the grid ever since.”

It’s nice to be green while buying American-made!
