Elevate your bathroom. Our Wooden Towel Ladder provides a natural, elegant way to hang towels. A small walnut shelf is perfect for a small plant or other decorative items. We handcraft our bathroom ladder with 100% upcycled alder — a durable, sustainable hardwood — and a zero-VOC, non-toxic varnish in our innovative FSC®-certified Los Angeles woodshop. And, consistent with our broader company values, we build our furniture to meet the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. Our ladder is an entirely carbon negative product — Avocado is a Climate Neutral Certified company — and we donate 1% of sales to vetted nonprofits through our partnership with 1% For the Planet.
Our Wooden Towel Ladder has a modern aesthetic that will warm any room. Its rounded edges and light tones, along with a darker, contrasting walnut shelf, give the ladder an entirely unique look. And we're proud to craft it in our innovative, FSC®-certified (C156318) Los Angeles woodshop with American timber. An FSC-certified company manages forests in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers while ensuring it sustains economic viability.
Above the third rung, we added a small shelf made from 100% walnut. It's perfect for stacking towels or placing succulents or other decorative elements. We stain the shelf with a contrasting darker hue, adding to the unique, modern charm of the ladder.
Furniture paints and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution because they emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds). In fact, the Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and particle board that are commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens, such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our Wooden Towel Ladder is GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions and Formaldehyde Free certified by UL Environment. That means the ladder is scientifically proven to meet some of the world's most rigorous, third-party emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as VOCs, formaldehyde, and phthalates.
As members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest assured that our Wooden Towel Ladder is consistent with healthy, environmental-friendly living.
Our Organic Bath Towels have a premium, lavish texture. Their weighty depth makes them highly absorbent and durable. A ribbed design gives them an elegant look with fast-drying power. And they’re stitched entirely from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton (CU863637). In fact, 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 lot of furniture is mass-made with cheap particle board, synthetic laminates, or veneers. Each piece looks exactly the same. That's not how we do things at Avocado. We individually handcraft all our furniture with 100% real wood. We believe in letting the rich character of the wood speak for itself. This way, every piece is original, with its own slight variations. It costs a little more to do things this way. But our customers love having unique, durable, thoughtfully crafted furniture that will last generations.
Avocado is a Certified B Corporation and a carbon negative business. That means we work with Climate Neutral Certified to voluntarily measure, reduce, and offset more than 100% of our emissions, from resource extraction all the way 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.
Dimensions & Certifications
Shipping & Delivery
We handcraft Our Wooden Towel Ladders in our FSC®-certified (C156318) woodshop in Los Angeles with domestically sourced alder. The ladder ships via FedEx fully assembled. At this time, our woodshop products and mattress and/or bedding orders can not be coordinated to arrive at the same time.
Solid Wood Construction
In our effort to make our factory zero waste, we harness upcycled alder and walnut from the unused pieces of wood used to make our bed frames.
We do not use traditional lacquers or varnishes, which typically contain harsh chemicals and have strong chemicals that can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Instead, our towel ladder uses a zero-VOC ECOS® wood stain, which is organic, non-toxic, and odor-free. It conforms to CDPH 01350 (VOC emissions test taken at 11, 12, & 14 days for classroom and office use), as well ASTMD-4236, specifically concerning oral toxicity, skin irritation, and respiratory effects.
Safe, Odorless Glues
Our assembly utilizes Titebond® wood glues, which are safe and produce no harmful fumes. They meet the requirements of ASTM D4236 for safe use with arts and crafts and have both been approved for indirect food contact.
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.
