Clean and Conscious Awards 2024: Chiropedic has 2 products finalists

clean and conscious mattress

Our company is on the list of products selected by Clean and Conscious as finalists due to the quality and environmental standards.

Founded in 2019, the Awards are the brainchild of blogger, mother and practising Optometrist Emily Fletcher, who founded the Awards after identifying the need to celebrate safe and socially responsible products (Clean and Conscious).

As the website Sustainability Success explains, being environmental conscious is being mindful about how our actions can affect the environment and diminish bad effects on it. For our brand Chiropedic it applies to the choice of biodegradable materials and high manufacturing standards.

Sustainability Success give details about some benefits of being environmentally conscious:

Economic behaviour – When you’re aware of your impact on the environment, you’ll be more likely to recycle or reuse materials that would otherwise end up in landfills. You’ll also be able to reduce costs by purchasing used products or products made with recycled materials.

Health benefits – Being environmentally conscious can decrease your risk of certain diseases by moving to greener areas and walking or cycling more while avoiding more polluting transport options.

Social benefits – Environmentally conscious people often work together as part of groups called “communities” that help each other out without expecting anything back except appreciation. These communities offer something unique because they’re based solely on mutual respect between members who share common goals rather than profit motivation alone.

Creativity – Being environmentally conscious can help you become more creative by finding new ways to reuse or upcycle products that otherwise would end up in a landfill (Sustainability Success).

Clean and Conscious Awards 2024 recognize the best products in categories like skincare, makeup, body products, haircare, baby products, food and nutrition, home and others.

In the category Best Bed as part of Home awards, we have two products finalists. One is Chiropedic Pressure Relief Bamboo Pillow and the other is Eco Kids Pillow Top Mattress.

Bedbuyer valued our Chiropedic Pressure Relief Bamboo Pillow as Awarded Best Pillow 2024.

According to Bedbuyer, “The Chiropedic Pressure Relief Pillow brilliantly combines comfort, support, and cooling”.

Chiropedic Pressure Relief Bamboo Pillow offers an option for each need. The classic may suit most of the sleeper positions, while the Contour is specially designed to give more support on head and neck area, and the Low shape is better for back sleepers and kids.

We also offer other options in different materials like Memory Foam, Gel or Visco Elastic.

The other finalist, Eco Kids Pillow Top Mattress have features that make it a unique product and environmentally conscious on the manufacturing.

This product has the Low VOC Pillow Top Design as is engineered so the pillow top foam layer is mechanically fastened to the spring system without any use of glues or spray adhesives like in traditional pillow top mattresses.

Eco Kids Mattress has been named the best kids’ mattress in Australia for three consecutive years, 2022, 2023, and now in 2024. This recognition was given by BedBuyer, a well-respected organization known for providing expert and unbiased reviews of bedding products in Australia.

Not only is the mattress highly recommended by BedBuyer, but it has also been approved by chiropractors for its exceptional design and comfort. Specifically designed and recommended for children aged 2 and above, including teenagers and young adults, the mattress is suitable for all sleeping positions, whether front, back, or side.

As you can see, our brand is aware of respecting the environment keeping the quality of our products to provide the best comfort to all the family.

Soon we will know if we win an award with one of our finalists but meanwhile, you can find our range of products on Chiropedic or Eco kids.

Which pillow is right for me?


One of the biggest controversies in the sleep industry is definitely the kind of pillow you are sleeping on. Everyone seems to have the ‘best’ pillow and whatever you are sleeping on, is just not good enough. But, what we often don’t realise, is that everyone is different, and everyone sleeps in a different way. This is the biggest thing to consider when you are making the decision to buy a new pillow. Forget what your neighbour or mother told you about what is right for “you”, and go out and try as many different shapes and feels of pillows that you can. Remember, you’re the one that is going to be sleeping on it, so your comfort should be the only thing to consider. There are currently a wide range of materials used in pillows which can make the decision process hard, but here is a brief explanation on a few of the most important things to consider.


Most pillows can be designed in two different shapes – the classic and the contour. The classic shape is the everyday pillow you can flip and rotate as many times as you like. The contour pillow is designed to never be flipped and is shaped to especially support side sleepers. Both shapes will support you as you sleep, but the option is there for comfort purposes



These pillows are made of premium density Visco Elastic Memory Foam, designed for those who sleep on their back, front and side. This great material has the ability to mould to your head shape within minutes so all you need to do is, lie down and let the pillow work for you.


Gel infused memory foam pillows are designed with a cooling gel layer to assist those wanting a cooler night’s sleep. Gel is known to be quite a great cooling agent within the sleep industry.


Natural Latex pillows are great for most individual needs. They are hypoallergenic and anti-microbial which is great for those who suffer from asthma or allergies. The material can be used to be high or low pillows to suit those who are particular about the height of their pillows.


The Bamboo material has become increasingly popular over the past few years as it is a well-known material that has many breathing qualities that are favoured by many in the market. When combined with memory foam, it can feel quite plush and soft. So there we have it, a few general points that should be taken into consideration when the expiration date on your pillow is arriving.

Why bamboo pillows are a great choice

 While the right mattress is the starting place in caring for your spine while you sleep, your pillow plays an important role in ensuring that your neck is safely and comfortably supported. If you are in the market for a new pillow, remember that while price is important, you are going to be spending a lot of time resting your head on it. This means that you want to choose a pillow that will provide the best possible comfort for your budget. It’s just one reason why bamboo pillows have become such a popular choice. To help you make an informed decision when you purchase your next pillow, here are some of the pros and cons of a bamboo pillow:

What is a bamboo pillow made from?

Chiropedic’s bamboo pillows are made from quick release, pin-holed Visco Memory Foam with a removable and washable bamboo cover. The memory foam cushion has a plush feel that’s like sleeping on a cloud, providing pressure relief for head, neck and shoulders. The bamboo pillow cover is a thick, luxurious fabric with a silky feel. The silky, soft texture of the fabric comes from the bamboo fiber which is combined with other natural or synthetic threads to create the material.

Stay cooler and comfortable at night

Bamboo fabric is more efficient than cotton for wicking away moisture. The soft, natural fibers offer an advantage over synthetic fibers with breathability that provides comfort to a warm sleeper. Inside the bamboo cover, the Visco Memory foam cushion allows easy airflow, making a bamboo pillow ideal for sleeping on warm or humid nights.

Reduce symptoms of allergies for better sleep

Bamboo is a natural material and is not exposed to many chemicals in processing. This means that the risk of an allergic reaction is much lower than with synthetic pillows. Bamboo pillows are less likely to accumulate dust mites, which are another common trigger for allergies. Many customers who had previously experienced difficulty sleeping due to allergies are getting a much better rest with a bamboo pillow. Bamboo may even be resistant to bacteria, due to a polymer called lignin which provides rigidity to the stalks of the bamboo plant. This is a highly desirable property in a fabric that rests against your head during the night.

Environment and sustainability

Bamboo is a sustainable resource, with fast-growing crops providing a ready source of raw material. It’s naturally harvested, so it doesn’t contain the pesticides and chemicals that may be found in cotton. The fabric is created using a natural process that uses few chemicals and is environmentally safe. (The Benefits of Bamboo Fabric: Soft, Sustainable, and Stylish — Better Goodness).

Caring for your bamboo pillow

A bamboo pillow is ideal for travel as the memory foam is light-weight and can be compressed right down and tucked into your luggage. Your bamboo pillow should be fluffed up regularly to ensure that the air pockets of the memory foam are opened up after being compressed during sleep. It’s a good idea to occasionally sit the pillow in the sun or use a dryer to remove any moisture that can accumulate in the pillow over time. You can tumble dry the pillow on low heat with dryer balls to restore its plumpness. Generally speaking, you should only machine wash the bamboo pillow when absolutely necessary.

Pros and cons of bamboo pillows

There are many pros to a bamboo pillow:

    • There are bamboo pillows to suit all sleeping styles
    • Ideal for sleeping in warm climates
    • Great for travel as it can be compressed
    • Easy to spot clean or remove and machine wash the cover
    • Sustainable and environmentally friendly production
    • Hypo-allergenic and antibacterial properties
    • Put it in the dryer to plump it up fast

Naturally, there are some cons too:

    • The memory foam centre is not easily machine washed
    • Pillows are a very personal choice and a bamboo pillow may not suit everyone
    • Memory foam pillows lose plumpness if stored in a compressed state for a long time

How do I choose the right pillow?

To choose the best pillow for the best nights sleep, you’ll want a new pillow that matches your sleeping style and meets your comfort needs. We generally recommend that back sleepers opt for a classic-shaped bamboo pillow to provide stable support for your head and neck. Side sleepers may be more comfortable on a contour-shaped bamboo pillow to provide cushioning for the space between your head and neck. If you sleep on your front or vary your position throughout the night, a memory foam pillow is able to conform to your position and provide suitable support for your spine. Shop online at Chiropedic and choose a bamboo pillow that fits within your budget and supports a healthy spine.

What Is The Best Pillow For A Good Nights Sleep?

There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to the type of pillow on your bed

Unlike how many steps you should walk every day, or the number of vegetables you should eat — there’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to the type of pillow you should have on your bed.

Your preferred materials, sleeping style, and the longevity you need from your pillows will all affect what the right pillow for you looks like. Because everyone is different, and everyone sleeps differently, there are no ‘one pillow fits all’ solution.

If your pillow feels lumpy, gets stuck to your face when you’re sleeping, or moves as you sleep, it’s time to invest in a new one.

There is currently a wide range of materials used in pillows which can make the decision process hard, but here are five of the most important things to consider when you are purchasing your next pillow.

1. Fill material

Your pillow’s fill material should be consistent with your needs and comfort preferences. Down pillows give you the traditional light and soft pillow-feel.

Synthetic and polyester-filled pillows are less expensive than natural down and are usually hypo-allergenic. They do require replacing more frequently but are a great budget alternative compared to many other pillow types.

These pillows are generally soft to medium but will flatten with wear and use over time.

Memory foam pillows are popular in the mattress and pillow industry, and for a good reason. While these pillows tend to start at a higher price point than synthetic and polyester-filled pillows, they last around three years with proper care.

The foam conforms to your individual shape, fitting your unique support needs. Responding to your weight, body heat, and body structure, memory foam softens and contours to the lines of your head, neck, and shoulders. It has the benefit of consistently distributing weight evenly across its surface.

Memory foam and gel combined pillows have the advantage of a cooler’s nights sleep, with natural temperature cooling-infused foams, great for those who find they get too hot overnight.

2. Sleeping style

Your sleeping style may affect the style of pillow that will suit you best. Keep in mind that most people have several sleeping styles; for example, you could move from your back to your side throughout the evening.

  • Side sleepers need a firmer pillow and a pillow on the thicker side to support the weight of their shoulders and neck properly. Memory foam or gel-infused foam pillows would fall under this category.
  • Stomach sleepers need a softer pillow — or no pillow at all — underneath their head. However, a synthetic or polyester pillow under your stomach and pelvis may help prevent back pain.
  • Back sleepers need a flatter pillow, to keep your head and neck in alignment. Back sleepers may prefer softer synthetic or polyester pillows, however, if you wake up with neck or back pain, it may be worth looking into additional support with foam pillows.

3. Shape

Most pillows are designed in two different shapes — the classic and the contour.

  • The classic shape is the everyday pillow you can flip and rotate as many times as you like.
  • The contour pillow is designed to never be flipped and is shaped to especially support side sleepers.

4. Heat

Synthetic and polyester-filled pillows generally sleep cooler than memory foam pillows.

Memory foam retains heat, which can lead to discomfort and sweating, particularly in warmer weather. High-quality memory foam pillows are often made today with ventilation built into the pillow, or high-quality cooling gels. These pillows can give off chemical-like smells, particularly when new.

5. A pillow’s lifespan

As a general rule, pillows should be replaced every 18 months. Higher quality pillows may last longer than budget pillows, and memory foam pillows tend to last longer than synthetic pillows.

Your pillow is an essential component of getting a good night’s sleep, as well as supporting a healthy sleeping posture, so it’s important to replace them regularly.
