NATURAL, RELIABLE PROTECTION
Designed to fit our Green Pillow or Molded Latex Pillow, our Organic Waterproof Pillow Protector is made with 100% GOTS organic cotton certified and provides the ultimate protection for your pillow. Manufactured in our GOTS certified factory in Los Angeles, it prevents spills and liquids (such as drool) from seeping into your pillow, helps reduce makeup and oily stains, prevents allergies, and keeps dust mites at bay. The hidden side zipper makes it easy to remove and wash. And because the waterproof polyurethane layer is incredibly thin, there’s no uncomfortable, plastic-like crinkle or feel.
WORRY LESSSLEEP BETTER
We don’t use PVC, vinyl, or phthalates in any of our products — including our waterproof pillow protector. Instead, our pillow protector features an ultra-thin polyurethane waterproof barrier that accounts for only 5% of its materials — within the GOTS standards for an essential material accessory. The rest is made of GOTS organic certified cotton. That means a healthier sleep for you and the added assurance that your pillow is protected from inevitable spills and stains, as well as bacteria and dust mites.
When it’s time to wash your pillow protector, doing so is simple. Remove it using the hidden side zipper and machine-wash it in cold water on the gentle cycle. Do not put it in the dryer. Hang the pillow protector and let it air dry. And if it looks a little wrinkly after the wash, that’s normal — the protector will smooth out once it’s back on your pillow.
WHY ORGANIC MATTERS
Conventional cotton is a polluted crop. That’s why our pillow protector is made with GOTS organic certified cotton that’s non-toxic and sustainably grown without pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. You won’t find any chemical adhesives or artificial dyes, either — and that’s better for you, our workers, and the planet. Not only that, organic cotton is a superior, high-quality material that’s durable, breathable, and wicks away moisture better than anything synthetic.
MADE IN CALIFORNIA
Our Organic Waterproof Pillow Protector is made in our GOTS certified factory in Los Angeles. Those certifications validate that we provide our factory team with fair wages, comprehensive benefits, and safe working conditions. GOTS also prohibits the use of the kinds of toxic chemicals commonly used in textile processing that can cause cancer, birth defects, and other serious illnesses. Of course, by using certified organic materials, we also protect the environment, our factory team, and you.

100% GOTS Organic Certified Cotton
For a luxurious and premium finish, we use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton in a soft, natural color. Responsibly and ethically sourced, we stitch this durable textile in an elegant finish. Our organic cotton has received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification (8731CIT) to ensure no harmful substances are present as a result of processing, to include banned substances, toxic chemicals, pesticides, and dyes.
Our waterproof protector relies on two layers of organic cotton to absorb liquids and a thin, GOTS-approved polyurethane membrane in the middle, which functions as the waterproof barrier. Even so, all polyurethane-based membranes do have a tendency to get weaker over time and, sooner or later, their performance will drop. This can be the result of UV radiation, aging, flexing, high or low temperatures, punctures, and, of course, numerous washing cycles. Our waterproof protector represents the best possible performance while still being a GOTS certified organic product. But we do not warrant it to be foolproof. No protector can claim that. It is, however, great for life's little accidents, as the hundreds of customer reviews attest. (Pro tip: some parents use two protectors at once, so they can just remove the outer protector in case of an accident for cleaning.) If you need a thick plastic protector with a zipper enclosure, we don’t sell those due to risk of chemical off-gassing and our preference for organic and sustainable products.
Machine wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. Lay flat or hang to dry. Allow to completely dry before putting back on your pillow. Do not iron or bleach. Dry completely after spot cleaning. Occasional airing will keep it fresh and clean.
The Organic Waterproof Pillow Protector is covered by a 100-night sleep trial (subject to our Sleep Trial Policy Terms) and a 1-Year Limited Warranty.
