On Friday, June 19 of this year, in a special ceremony, Organic Comfort Zone’s owner, Cheryl Hahn was presented with The Award of Excellence for Clean Business from the City of Norfolk, Virginia by Mayor Paul Fraim. Organic Comfort Zone, which manufactures and sells CozyPure® organic and natural bedding and mattresses, was noted for their products, which reflect the highest of environmental standards; utilizing organic cotton, natural wool, natural latex and other sustainable components.

Organic Comfort Zone’s environmental concerns go beyond their products and are also represented by their commitment to the restoration of the City itself. Located in what once was a derelict strip of shops, Hahn and her husband, Richard have spent the past five years restoring and revitalizing the small historic shopping center on the corner of Ocean View Avenue and First View Street. Now know as “Seaside Block”, the shopping center is considered the “gateway” to the City’s public beaches. The aesthetic improvements are amazing. The brightly colored buildings with their Art Deco facade are a welcoming beacon to visitors and tourists but the improvements go beyond the superficial. Organic Comfort Zone conserves energy through the use of geothermal heating and cooling and has been using compact fluorescent lights for almost twenty years. Additionally, they are in the planning stages for introducing wind and solar alternative energy generation right at their beachside location.

Leading by example is part of the philosophy of Organic Comfort Zone, which is constantly researching and developing new Earth and people friendly merchandise. Because of quality, comfort and durability, many of their products have gained national attention, awards and notoriety from notable publications such as Natural Home and “E” Magazine. Organic Comfort Zone and CozyPure® products can be viewed and purchased either from their beautiful showroom or online at http://organiccomfortzone.com/index.html.
