HELP THE PLANET
VEGAN & NATURAL
The Avocado Vegan Mattress is GREENGUARD Gold Certified. We handcraft the mattress with natural and organic materials, including GOLS organic certified latex from co-owned farmers' collectives and processing facilities in India and Guatemala, operating under the USDA National Organic Program, and 100% GOTS organic certified cotton. Our non-toxic Vegan Mattress combines the finest natural cushioning with an internal, zoned, pressure-point system for proper back support and extended durability. We do not use wool anywhere in this PETA-approved mattress.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC LATEX
Avocado mattresses feature GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam, made from our co-owned facilities in India and Guatemala. It’s an eco-conscious, high-performance material, offering resilience, durability, and temperature control that exceeds synthetic, blended, or petroleum-based polyurethane foams.
MADE WITHOUT WOOL
Our Avocado Vegan Mattress replaces the wool used in our Avocado Green Mattress with 100% USDA organic certified cotton batting. No wool or animal-based products are used anywhere in our Vegan Mattress. Best of all, it still meets all federal flammability standards.
ORGANIC CERTIFIED COTTON
Our luxurious, button-tufted mattress covers are made with premium, certified organic cotton — one of the softest, most breathable, and most comfortable fabrics available. It’s cool, wicks moisture, and, better still, boasts the most stringent Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification. We do not blend polyester with our cotton.
With a gentle, yet firm feel, our standard Avocado Vegan Mattress sets the standard for affordable eco-luxury. At 11-inches thick, with 3 inches of GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam, it delivers balanced firmness, comfort, and support. It’s ideal for back and stomach sleepers and average to large/tall side sleepers. To adjust the feel, you can add a mattress topper at any time.
For a luxury, plush feel, you can upgrade your Vegan Mattress with an attached European-style pillowtop, filled with an additional 2-inch layer of GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam — for a total of 5 inches. At 13-inches thick, it’s ideal for all side and combination sleepers, and those in need of more pressure relief or a luxurious feel.
Vegan Action (the Vegan Awareness Foundation) in Richmond, Virginia, has certified our Vegan Mattress. It is also a PETA-approved product. That means our vegan mattresses are third-party validated to not contain wool or other animal products or byproducts that have been tested on animals. Instead of wool, we use a generous layer of USDA certified 100% organic cotton batting.
Avocado mattresses feature our distinctive, soft, hand-tufted rosettes made from pure white organic cotton. Needle-tufting is a time-honored technique dating back to the 17th century. It’s also highly functional. By pulling cotton ribbons through the full mattress in up to 32 locations, we bind the layers together without the use of toxic solvent or water-based adhesives. This radically improves durability. And it's a hallmark of quality.
1,414 COILS + 5 ZONES
An Avocado Vegan Mattress features the most durable and supportive innerspring unit available in any mattress, anywhere. Made in America, it features up to 1,414 individually tuned, tempered steel coils, in three gauges, and arranged in five distinct ergonomic zones. With coils that float independently, it boasts a fully reinforced steel perimeter for support all the way to the edge. This best-in-class system reduces motion transfer, keeps your back aligned, relieves back pain, distributes weight more evenly, alleviates pressure points, and lovingly contours to your body’s natural curves.
Two upholstered handles adorn both side panels of the mattress, neatly sewn for a tight fit. (Many foam mattresses don’t even have handles.) Our handles won’t bunch out underneath the sheets. Moving or adjusting your vegan bed is hassle-free. But you never need to flip it!
CHEMICAL-FREE FIRE PROTECTION WITHOUT WOOL
The chemical fire retardants used by most mattress manufacturers are toxic, suspected to cause organ toxicity, hair loss, and other neurological damage. That’s why we infuse 100% natural graphite with the organic latex as a non-toxic fire barrier to protect your mattress. No wool or any other type of fire retardant or fire sock is used. Avocado mattresses exceed all federal flammability and CPSC standards without using chemical flame retardants.
SAFE & NON-TOXIC
We don’t use petroleum-based polyurethane foams, memory foams, chemical adhesives to bind our layers, or chemical flame retardants. Our latex and cotton have received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification to ensure no harmful chemicals are present. Why does that matter? The choices we make about what we buy, where it comes from, and how it's made have a direct impact on the health of people, communities, and the planet.
Every finished Avocado mattress is GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment for low emissions. That means they’re 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. Few mattresses and pillows qualify for this gold standard. For a deeper dive into indoor air quality, pollutants, and your health, visit our GREENGUARD Gold Certification page.
THE FIRST MADE SAFE® VEGAN MATTRESS
The Avocado Vegan Mattress is the first mattress on the market to be both MADE SAFE® and Vegan certified. The certification prohibits the use of more than 6,500 harmful substances, such as flame retardants, everywhere in the mattress. Avocado is one of only three mattress brands in the world to meet this gold standard of safety.

100% GOLS Organic Certified Latex
We use 100% FSC® certified (C156318) Dunlop latex in our mattresses because it is more eco-conscious than Talalay latex, which requires more processing. We make our own GOLS organic certified latex from co-owned farmer's societies and processing facilities in India and Guatemala, operating under the USDA's National Organic Program. Dunlop latex is naturally antimicrobial, cooler than memory foam, requires no adhesives to seam it together, and is more durable than Talalay latex. It's made with equal to or more than 95% certified organic latex, the highest possible standard, and processed in a GOLS organic certified facility in India that we also co-own. On our standard Avocado mattress, we use two seamless layers of organic latex — 2 inches in the comfort layer (D65 / 14-19 ILD, soft) and a 1-inch layer (D65) in the base. On the Avocado Mattress with the optional, attached Pillow-Top, we use three seamless layers of organic latex — 2 inches in the Euro-top layer (D65), 2 more inches in the comfort layer (D65), and another 1-inch layer (D65) in the base. We do not use blended or synthetic latex and the seams will not break down over time. We needle-tuft our mattresses by hand, so it contains no chemical adhesives to bind the layers. Plus, our GOTS organic certified latex has received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification (19.HIN.79546, Hohenstein HTTI) — which requires annual lab testing to ensure no harmful substances are present as a result of processing, to include banned substances, toxic chemicals, pesticides, and dyes. To be extra thorough, our latex is even eco-INSTITUT certified, a certification for products fulfilling the strictest requirements on pollutants and emissions following the latest state of the art international research and science.
100% GOTS Organic Certified Cotton Batting
Rather than wool, our Vegan Mattress uses 400 grams per square foot of 100% GOTS organic certified cotton batting sourced from family farmers in India. It is a 100% USDA certified organic cotton fiber, farmed to NOP farming standards.
100% GOTS Organic Certified Cotton Cover
For a luxurious and premium finish, we use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton in a soft, natural color. We craft the top panel with 100% stretch organic cotton, in a soft natural color, for a luxurious and premium finish, with a thin non-woven backing as natural fire barrier, per Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) accessory requirements (required to keep the organic materials from shifting during production, and to ensure the natural fibers do not clump or "work" through the cotton layers over time). No polyester fiber is used. Responsibly and ethically sourced from India, our durable cotton is needle-tufted by hand with organic cotton yarn rosettes, which secure the cotton ticking and internal mattress layers firmly in place without the use of chemical or water-based chemical adhesives. Our organic cotton has received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification (15.HIN.75800, 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. Even the green thread used in the stitching and logo embroidery is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified. Reinforced seams are double-stitched and four heavy-duty upholstered handles complete the package.
Pressure-Point Support in 5 Strategic Zones
The Avocado Green Mattress features one of the most advanced, internal, pressure-point support units available anywhere, at any price. The unit has between 756 (Twin) to 1,414 (King) individually wrapped innersprings — arranged in five strategic zones — to support hips, back, and shoulders, plus a reinforced steel perimeter giving the bed a consistent level of support all the way to the edge. Encased in a food-grade polypropylene fabric (non-woven and non-toxic), these premium springs float independently to further improve airflow, support, and spinal alignment. It features three wire gauges: 16 gauge (narrow diameter) perimeter coils in the reinforced sides and the header/footer zones; 17 gauge (a slightly more narrow diameter) coils through the center one-third section; and 14 gauge (larger diameter) coils on both sides of the center section (the same in the shoulder and hip areas, since our mattress is designed to be rotated regularly). Made in the USA from heat-treated and stress-relieved wire, these up-cycled steel coils enable our mattress to deliver firm edge support for the life of the mattress and benefit those in critical need of back pain and pressure-point relief.
Natural Graphite Powder
Graphite powder is a natural product that has a long history of safe use. The graphite we add to the latex acts as a naturally-derived fire retardant barrier and exceeds all U.S. standards for flammability. Graphite powder is commonly called expandable graphite. When it comes into contact with fire, the graphite expands super fast and absorbs the oxygen. Of course, for anything to burn, you need oxygen. So this process prevents burning, and it does not release any toxins, either.
Firmness Rating & Performance Testing
On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the firmest) our standard Avocado Vegan Mattress rates as a 7, which is gentle, yet firm. It's ideally suited for back and stomach sleepers, as well as lighter individuals and growing children — anyone in need of natural cushioning and medium-firm support. With the pillow-top option, our mattress rates as a 6. (It is not overly soft, "plushy" or "sinkable." A mattress that is too soft can actually cause back pain and restless sleep). Instead, our pillow-top model offers just the right amount of added luxury and buoyant cushioning, all of which is buttressed by strategically zoned back support. Our Pillow-Top model more easily adapts to your body's natural curves, and as a result, is ideally suited for side sleepers, all-around sleepers, heavier individuals, athletes, and those in search of pain relief, pressure-point relief and critical back support.
Vegan Certified – No Wool or Animal Products
Avocado vegan products contain no animal products or animal byproducts, such as wool. We do, however, produce products that contain wool, and shared machinery and facilities are used between our vegan and non-vegan products. However, we have demonstrated verifiable acceptable steps that we take to thoroughly clean and sanitize all surfaces, tools, and machinery used between vegan and non-vegan production cycles to minimize cross-contamination.
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.

Sleep Trial Policy & Success Tips
Your 1-Year Vegan Mattress trial begins after you receive your mattress, and is limited to one mattress per household, after a minimum of 30 days, according to policy terms & conditions. Products must be in a condition suitable for donation to be eligible for return (i.e., no stains, tears, excessive odors, or soiling) with the law tag attached to the mattress and in its original, unaltered state. Your mattress must be used on a foundation or non-yielding bed frame with proper structural support. A proper bed frame is defined, for the purpose of this policy, as having at least five to six leg supports for a Queen, King, and California King Mattress, four leg supports for Twin, Twin XL and Full Mattresses. For Queen, King, and California King slatted style bed frames, there cannot be greater than five 5 inches between each slat in order to provide ample structural support for the foundation and user(s). Boxspring, which contain springs and therefore can sag over time, may not provide proper structural support and are not recommended. The mattress must be rotated head-to-toe, once a month for the first six months, then every other month, to ensure even wear. The mattress box must be opened within 30 days of receipt. Read our full Sleep Trial Policy for all terms and conditions. For Sleep Trial Tips, read our help center article here.
Unboxing Your Mattress
Unboxing your mattress is easy. Be sure to recycle all packaging materials.
A law label is a legally required tag or label on new mattresses 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 Vegan Mattress actually says: Made in California with internal materials (based on weight) consisting of Natural Latex (83%) and Certified Organic Cotton (17%), plus a 100% Organic Cotton cover. On our pillowtop mattress, it says: Natural Latex (83%) and Certified Organic Cotton (17%), plus a 100% Organic Cotton cover. Note: NO wool, NO polyurethane foams, NO memory foams, NO synthetic foams, NO latex blends, NO chemical adhesives between the comfort layers, and NO chemical flame retardants are used!
