According to the leading independent consumer publication's rating, Avocado Green Mattress is the best-rated hybrid mattress in America — two years in a row. U.S. News & World Report rates Avocado as the No. 1 hybrid mattress for 2020. But to be clear, we make ORGANIC latex hybrid mattresses. What's that? It’s the best of both worlds — uniting the luxury of natural comfort layers with the superior support that only innersprings deliver. Avocado’s organic latex hybrid mattresses offer better back support, keeping your spine aligned and relieving aching pressure points. They allow for improved airflow, ensuring a cooler night’s sleep. They respond and flex easily. And of course, our latex hybrid mattresses deliver marathon-like durability, staying strong over the long haul for all body types and sleeping positions.
But unlike other hybrid brands, Avocado is green. Our beds are handmade in Los Angeles with organic certified materials (look us up!), needle-tufted instead of glued together, GREENGUARD Gold certified for super low emissions, and MADE SAFE® Non-Toxic Certified (which means no flame retardants, just wool). We’re so green we’re even Climate Neutral® Certified for net-zero emissions all the way from the farm to your bedroom. What’s not to love?
In a hybrid mattress, coil counts matter! (Pro tip: always ask.) Most mattresses have 700 or fewer coils in a king size bed. Each Avocado mattress has 1,414 coils. Better still, our tempered steel coils are made in the USA by Leggett & Platt® using 100% recycled steel. Plus, they use three different wire gauges and two different coil turn setups to tune each coil’s firmness and spring action based on its position in the bed. This is the pinnacle of body-contouring support!
In traditional innerspring units, the coils were interlocked. Our Quantum Edge® Elite Combi-Zone® unit is a marvel of bed-tech, far superior to lower-end designs. Each coil is individually wrapped and allowed to flex independently, tirelessly conforming to your body’s natural curves.
An innerspring unit with more zones is superior. Our Quantum Edge® Elite Combi-Zone® unit features five strategically-tuned zones: (1) two reinforced side rails, (2) two reinforced header and footer rails, (3) a gentle upper body zone, (4) a firmer lumbar support in the middle, and (5) another gentle lower-body zone. With springs that extend all the way to the end, the “roll-off” feeling typical of low-end beds is eliminated.
Only Avocado hybrid mattresses use GOLS organic certified latex from our own FSC® certified farms, 100% GOTS organic certified wool, from our own collective, and 100% GOTS organic certified cotton for the most sustainable and responsible luxurious sleep possible.
Organic latex is simply Mother Nature’s gift to us. No other natural material comes close in terms of comfort, breathability, resiliency, elasticity, motion isolation, durability, support, and even biodegradability. Our GOLS organic certified Dunlop latex comes from our co-owned farmers’ societies in India, operating under the USDA’s National Organic Program. It comes from the milky white sap of rubber trees, grown without persistent herbicides and pesticides, and processed in an organic certified facility that we also jointly own. (Yes, we’re obsessive about quality control.)
Our GOTS organic certified wool is sourced from family collectives that we co-own in India, operating under the USDA's National Organic Program. It offers unparalleled temperature regulation and moisture wicking. It is also a natural flame retardant, allowing us to meet all federal flame retardancy laws without the use of toxic chemical or synthetic fire barriers. It has even received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certification (19.HIN.68466, Hohenstein HTTI), ensuring it contains no harmful substances.
We only use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton — with trusted public certifications. Our cotton is responsibly and sustainably grown in India without persistent pesticides and herbicides. This is better for you as well as our farmers and their families. Best of all, organic cotton delivers a more luxurious finish, breathes easily, and wicks away moisture better than any synthetic.

What is a Hybrid Mattress? A hybrid mattress combines the support that innerspring mattresses are known for with the comfort and resiliency that are the hallmarks of a foam mattress. Since they combine comfort and support in one unit, hybrid mattresses are considered to be the best of both modern bed technologies. A "true hybrid mattress" uses substantial foam and comfort layers over the innerspring unit. All Avocado mattresses are true hybrid mattresses, with 3 to 5 inches of premium (and organic) comfort layers.
Why is a Hybrid Mattress Better? A Hybrid Mattress is more comfortable and supportive. They also sleep cooler, since they allow for better airflow, are more durable than foam mattresses (less prone to body impressions and sinkage), and are more flexible, especially for use on adjustable bed frames.
What is a Latex Hybrid Mattress? A latex hybrid mattress is similar to other hybrid mattresses but includes latex in the comfort layer. However, unlike Avocado, most mattress brands use blended or synthetic latex that is not 100% natural. They generally pair their latex comfort layers with other non-natural materials, such as polyurethane foam, viscoelastic memory foam, or "cooling" gels, as well as substances that are known to impact human health, like flame retardants and adhesives that are used to bind their layers together.
What is GOLS Organic Latex? Organic latex must be certified to the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) to contain 95% or more organic latex sap — the highest possible standard. Organic latex is responsibly grown on organic certified "rubber tree" farms without the use of persistent pesticides and herbicides, then processed in organic certified facilities. Organic latex is a sustainable and renewable resource that is far better for human health and the environment. Organic latex always includes a full chain of custody for trust and consumer transparency and must always be marketed with a license number under the GOLS certification logo from the certifying body, such as Control Union®. Obviously, GOLS organic certified latex costs much more than natural, blended, or synthetic latex, and is far more scarce. Customers should ensure that GOLS organic latex claims are backed by public certifications and finished products are listed in the GOTS Public Database.
What is an Organic Mattress? "Organic" is a highly regulated term by the USDA's National Organic Program and the FTC. When a brand claims to have an organic mattress, it means all of the materials used that can be organic, are actually organic. An organic mattress uses only materials — typically organic latex, cotton, and wool — that have been certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS). These standards for ecology and social responsibility are endorsed by the USDA's National Organic Program (NOP) regardless of their country of origin. These standards mean that: All of the materials are certified to be as organic as possible; all of the factories that make the natural material components and finished products follow organic practices and are also organic certified; and the finished product is organic certified. It must also maintain ethical business practices. Three levels of certification are required.
What is an Organic Certified Latex Hybrid Mattress? The Avocado Green Mattress is an organic certified latex hybrid mattress. The comfort fabric ticking and comfort layers are made with GOLS organic certified Dunlop latex, GOTS organic certified cotton, and GOTS organic certified wool. Talalay latex, which is natural latex, but does not meet organic standards, is not used. Polyurethane, viscoelastic memory foams or "cooling" gels are also not used. The innerspring support unit is made in the USA from recycled steel and cannot be made from organic materials.
