We’re sure you’ve heard the story of how Naturepedic began. Barry Cik， a board certified engineer， was shopping for his first grandchild’s crib mattress and found most of the conventional options full of ingredients and materials that he knew weren’t safe for a baby to be sleeping on! With his two sonspersonalized graduation frames， he founded Naturepedic to bring a safer， healthier crib mattress to parents for their babies.personalized toys
It’s this commitment to safer sleep that makes Barry and our company stand out. Barry’s devotion to healthier products and organic materials comes from his desire to protect and preserve the environment for future generations. We’re so proud to share that Barry Cik was honored at the Ohio Environmental Council’s Green Gala as the recipient of the Environmental Entrepreneur Award.
The OEC’s mission is to secure healthy air， land， and water for people who live in Ohio， through legislation and advocacy. Their work helps communities implement green policies and environmentally-friendly practices that save money and preserve the planet. Their annual Green Gala is an event to honor Ohioans who further this mission. This year， that includes our own Barry Cik!
