THE ULTIMATE IN COMFORT, DURABILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY
Our Organic Hemp Duvet Covers aren’t just made with one of the most sustainable fabrics on the planet — they’re incredibly comfortable, too. They have the elegant texture of linen, and they become even softer over time. Plus, their thermoregulating nature keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Farmers have cultivated hemp for fabrics for thousands of years. It’s easy to understand why. Hemp is a super plant; its fiber is naturally breathable, hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and extremely durable. Growing it requires a third of the land and a quarter of the water as cotton. Most companies use non-organic hemp, which requires intensive chemical treatments to process the plant quickly and cheaply. That’s not how we do things. Our 100% GOTS certified organic hemp (CU863637) is held to the gold standard for environmental and social responsibility among fibers. They're even MADE SAFE® Certified — a rigorous scientific screening process that only allows the use of ingredients that are not known or suspected to harm human health, animals, aquatic life, or ecosystems.
A NEW BAR FOR SUSTAINABLE FABRICS
Because of their incredible sustainability, hemp fabrics are everywhere right now. The plant grows so well it doesn’t require herbicides and, as a natural pest reducer, hemp doesn’t need pesticides, either. And because its roots grow up to nine feet deep, hemp is a regenerative plant, returning 60 to 70% of nutrients back to the soil. Hemp farms are also remarkable carbon sinks — sequestering the climate-change causing gas at twice the clip of forests. But not all hemp fiber is processed equally. Avocado exclusively uses 100% GOTS certified organic hemp and GOTS approved dyes — so there are no nasty inputs in processing. Plus, their MADE SAFE® certification means they passed a rigorous scientific screening process that only allows the use of ingredients that are not known or suspected to harm human health, animals, aquatic life, or ecosystems.
TEXTURE AND FEEL
Our Organic Hemp Duvet Covers have a similar feel to linen, with an elegant drape and texture, and they’ll just get softer with each wash. The grams per square meter of a sheet is a measure of its quality, effectiveness, and feel. We use a premium 165 gsm weight with hemp sourced from India. Our Duvet Covers are thick and durable — but because of the fabric’s incredible natural properties, they breathe extremely well, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
MAKE THEM EVEN SOFTER
Keep in mind that our Organic Duvet Covers will get softer with each wash. Machine wash them on a gentle cycle with similar colors in cold water. Do not use fabric softeners, bleach, or whiteners. We recommend line drying for best results or tumble dry low and remove promptly. Hemp sheets naturally produce lint from the dryer. The lint will reduce over time. To avoid lint, and to create crisp, sun-dried sheets and covers, always hang on the line to dry.
NON-TOXIC & SAFE
When it comes to accrediting the safety and health of our products, we don't mess around. 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. Because we use GOTS certified organic hemp, you can trust our Organic Hemp Duvet Cover to meet the highest standards for safety, from the farm to your bedroom. But we don't stop there. Our Hemp Duvet Cover is also MADE SAFE® certified, passing one of the most rigorous tests for product safety on the planet.
A CARBON NEGATIVE PRODUCT
In 2019, Avocado Green Mattress became the first non-founding 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 the rest, 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. But we know offsets aren’t enough. That’s why we also advocate for legislation that will mitigate climate change and protect people and the planet.
BIODEGRADEABLE AND ZERO WASTE
We believe in a circular economy that accounts for the lifecycle of our products. That’s one reason we design our Organic Hemp Duvet Covers from natural, organic materials, which make them 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 we divert as much waste from the landfill as possible by upcycling or recycling material byproducts. The effort is consistent with our mission to set a new bar in environmental and social responsibility.
