Organic Comfort & Protection
Because Avocado’s mission is creating sustainable products, we prefer our fully organic, absorbent, and breathable Organic Cotton Mattress Pad Protector. However, we also realize sometimes practicality trumps all else. That’s why we made this Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector. The fitted, lightweight pad is waterproof, machine-washable, and dependable in protecting your mattress from life’s little accidents. The waterproof polyurethane is thin, so it doesn’t have a plastic-like crinkle or rubbery noise, and you won’t overheat. Plus, it’s sandwiched by two layers of soft GOTS organic certified cotton.
STAY SAFE & DRY
Our waterproofing technology is made from an ultra-thin polyurethane waterproof barrier. We don’t use vinyl, PVC, or phthalates, and it isn’t dense, noisy, or rubbery, either. Our Waterproof Mattress Protector pairs with Avocado mattresses and is made with 95% organic cotton and just 5% polyurethane, which is within GOTS standards for an essential material accessory. Fine pores allow humidity to escape while the layer keeps liquid out. Plus, it protects against bacteria and dust mites.
WHY ORGANIC MATTERS
Conventional cotton is a polluted crop. So we use GOTS organic certified cotton for the two absorptive layers sandwiching the waterproof barrier, as well as on the fitted elastic skirt. Best of all, organic cotton delivers a luxurious and soft finish, breathes easily, and wicks away moisture better than any synthetic.
Our waterproof protector is meant to be washed before use. That's because the GOTS organic certified cotton will shrink. It may take multiple washes until it's the perfect fit for your mattress. For future washes, simply spot clean or machine wash using an eco-conscious laundry detergent. Do not use bleach. Tumble dry on low or just air it out on the line until completely dry.
Our Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector is GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions and Formaldehyde Free certified by UL Environment. That means the mattress protector is scientifically proven to meet some of the world's most rigorous, third-party emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, and phthalates. The mattress protector is also MADE SAFE® Certified, so you can trust all the materials we use are free from ingredients linked to or suspected to cause harm to humans, animals, or ecosystems. Few mattress protectors meet this gold standard.

Our Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector and the fitted skirt is handmade with 95% GOTS organic certified cotton and an ultra-thin, breathable 5% polyurethane waterproofing layer. Manufactured for Avocado in Pakistan in a GOTS & GOLS organic certified factory. No fire retardants, antimicrobial treatments, vinyl, PVC, phthalates, phosphorus, antimony or arsenic are used.
Our waterproof protector relies on two layers of organic cotton to absorb liquids and a thin, GOTS-approved polyurethane membrane in the middle, which functions as the waterproof barrier. Even so, all polyurethane-based membranes do have a tendency to get weaker over time and, sooner or later, their performance will drop. This can be the result of UV radiation, aging, flexing, high or low temperatures, punctures, and, of course, numerous washing cycles. Our waterproof protector represents the best possible performance while still being a GOTS certified organic product. But we do not warrant it to be foolproof. No protector can claim that. It is, however, great for life's little accidents, as the hundreds of customer reviews attest. (Pro tip: some parents use two protectors at once, so they can just remove the outer protector in case of an accident for cleaning.) If you need a thick plastic protector with a zipper enclosure, we don’t sell those due to risk of chemical off-gassing and our preference for organic and sustainable products.
For a luxurious and premium finish, we use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton in a soft, natural color. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions and Formaldehyde Free certified by UL Environment. That means the mattress protector is scientifically proven to meet some of the world's most rigorous, third-party emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, and phthalates. MADE SAFE® certification determines all of the materials we use are free from ingredients linked to or suspected to cause harm to humans, animals, or ecosystems.
Asthma and Allergy-Friendly Materials
With organic certified cotton inside and out, our protector is well-suited for anyone with asthma or allergies. However, it does not create a “fully-encased seal” around your mattress, so it is not intended to function as allergy barrier.
Please wash your Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector prior to use with an eco-conscious laundry detergent. Do not bleach. Tumble dry low or hang on the line until completely dry. It may take up to three washes to get the protectors to proper size. We made them intentionally big since they are 100% cotton and will shrink.
Carbon Negative Production & Shipping
Avocado is a carbon negative business. That means we 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.
