Our Organic Mini Molded Latex Pillow is the perfect size to support sleep while on the road. Made with the same comfortable and supportive certified organic and natural materials as our regular-size Molded Latex Pillow, it’s assembled in our California factory with a hyper-functional charcoal-infused latex core. The latex is firm and breathable, wicking moisture and moderating temperatures, working hard so all you have to do is sleep. The cover is made from sustainably sourced GOTS organic certified cotton from India. It cleans easily and is gentle to the touch.
Our molded, charcoal-infused latex core is designed for those who need more support, functionality, and comfort from their pillow. It’s ideal for side- and back-sleepers, while it is likely too firm for those who sleep on their stomach (for stomach sleepers, our Mini Green Pillow is probably a better fit). To make the pillow, we pour latex into a mold that’s the shape of the pillow and steam-bake it. This makes the core firm and supportive. We use charcoal-infused latex because it reduces odor and manages temperature and moisture, keeping you cool and dry while ensuring evenly distributed, firm neck support.
Charcoal has a ton of beneficial properties that are perfect for pillows, like temperature, moisture, and odor control. Plus, it’s completely natural. The charcoal used for our Mini Molded Latex Pillow comes from rice husks, whose porous structure lends itself to a charcoal with even better moisture and temperature regulation properties. Charcoal latex is created by infusing the charcoal into the natural latex mixture before vulcanization, spreading it throughout its entire core. The result is a powerful pillow that effectively eliminates body odors and moisture — and always stays cool.
We mold the core of our Mini Molded Latex Pillow with natural latex — from sap collected from rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis). Our latex is FSC® certified (156318). The authority on forest certification, the independent Forest Stewardship Council certification means the material comes from companies that manage forests in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers while ensuring it sustains economic viability.
We stitch the Mini Molded Latex Pillow cover in our Los Angeles factory with 100% GOTS organic certified cotton sourced responsibly from India. Rest your head knowing your pillow was thoughtfully made with considerations to the impacts on your health and the planet’s.
In 2019, Avocado Green Mattress became the first mattress company to become Climate Neutral Certified, effectively making our business carbon neutral. A year later, we took it a step further by going carbon negative — offsetting more carbon emissions than the company generates. Avocado works with Climate Neutral to reduce its emissions, then we measure and voluntarily offset more than 100% of our emissions, from resource extraction to shipping, by supporting carbon offset projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
We believe in a circular economy that accounts for the lifecycle of our products. That’s one reason we design our Mini Molded Latex Pillow from natural, organic materials, which make the pillow completely biodegradable. What’s more is that our GOTS certified factory, which we power entirely with renewable energy, is on its way toward a Zero-Waste certification, meaning nothing gets thrown away. We upcycle all our material byproducts. The effort is consistent with our mission to set a new bar in environmental and social responsibility.

No Chemical Flame Retardants
The Mini Molded Latex Pillow contains no chemical flame retardants (charcoal-infused latex is inherently fire resistant), which are known to release VOCs and impact human health. We do not add them because we believe they generally do more harm than good. (FYI: Pillows are not required to pass The Standard for the Flammability of Mattresses and Mattress Pads, issued by the CPSC. Therefore, it is logical that ignition sources should be kept safely away from any pillow that contains natural materials without the use of chemical flame retardants.)
The natural latex with charcoal infusion is a high-functioning core designed to regulate odor, moisture, and temperatures while providing firm neck support.
100% GOTS Organic Certified Cotton
For a luxurious and premium finish, we use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton — and no polyester fibers. Responsibly and ethically sourced from India, this durable textile provides an ideal exterior to our Mini Molded Latex Pillow. Our organic cotton has received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification (19.HIN.68466, Hohenstein HTTI) in our brand name, to ensure no harmful substances are present as a result of processing, to include banned substances, toxic chemicals, pesticides, and dyes.
Spot clean or machine wash your pillow cover with cold water on a gentle cycle. Hang in a sunny, breezy spot to air dry. Do not bleach.

A law label is a legally required tag or label on a new pillow that describes the interior filling materials. Few companies will share this information prior to your purchase because it separates fact from marketing hype. We believe differently. Here's what the legal tag on the standard Avocado Molded Latex Pillow actually says: Made in California with internal materials (based on weight) consisting of Natural Latex (100%), plus a 100% Organic Cotton Cover. Note: NO polyurethane foams, NO memory foams, NO synthetic foams, NO latex blends, NO chemical adhesives, NO vinyl, No Polyurethane, No PLU, and NO chemical flame retardants or synthetic fire barriers are used.
FREE CARBON NEGATIVE SHIPPING
Our Mini Molded Latex pillows ship for free via FedEx, in a plain box, and typically arrive in about a week.
