Making any type of purchase for your child can be difficult, there are so many things to consider. From toys to bedding, you have to think about if they will like it, whether it’s safe, amongst so many other things.

We know buying a mattress for your child is considered a big purchase, and a lot of thought goes into it. That’s exactly why we’re happy and proud to share our certifications with you. These certifications help make buying an Eco Kids mattress a conscious and informed decision, and take a lot of the guesswork out.

Here are our four certifications and what they mean:

Australian Made

Australian Made Certification

What does this mean?

The famous Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo is the true mark of Aussie authenticity. It’s Australia’s most trusted, recognised and widely used country of origin symbol, and is underpinned by a third-party accreditation system, which ensures products that carry the logo are certified as ‘genuinely Australian’.

The AMAG logo can only be used on products that are registered with the not-for-profit Australian Made Campaign, and which meet the criteria set out in the Australian Consumer Law and the AMAG Logo Code of Practice.

For more than 30 years, the AMAG logo has helped thousands of brands communicate their Australian credentials to consumers.
