ARPICO organic latex comes only from the world famous ARPICO rubber tree plantation where natural latex is created from the tapping of organic rubber trees (Hevea Brasiliensis). These trees are planted and grown with the highest standards when it comes to protecting the planet, and meet strict standards earning a variety of certifications for purity, along with strict standards for being 100 percent natural latex and being organic.
The ARPICO plantation consists of 10 acres and 2,500 rubber trees. It removes more than 143 metric tons of carbon dioxide from the air each year. The sap is collected from the trees to create the latex foam used in making your natural latex mattress.
ARPICO, like PlushBeds, has rigorous standards for every aspect of the foam-making process. This includes:
Care is taken at every stage of the process to be worthy caretakers of the trees, the planet, the people who live in the communities around their plantation, and the people who work for their organization.
