Avocado Green Mattress
SLEEP WELL, DO GOOD
FOR THE PLANET
AFFORDABLE ORGANIC LUXURY
The Avocado Green Mattress is GREENGUARD Gold Certified — and made with natural and organic materials, including GOLS organic certified latex from co-owned farmers' collectives and a co-owned processing facility in India, operating under the USDA National Organic Program; GOTS organic and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified wool from a farmers' society we also co-own; and GOTS organic certified cotton. Our non-toxic green bed combines the finest natural cushioning with an internal, zoned, pressure-point support system for proper back support and extended durability. We even make a new Vegan Mattress made without wool that is PETA-approved.
ORGANIC CERTIFIED LATEX
Avocado mattresses feature GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam, made from sustainably harvested sources. It’s an eco-conscious, high-performance material, offering resilience, durability, and temperature control that far exceeds synthetic, blended, or petroleum-based polyurethane foams.
ORGANIC CERTIFIED WOOL
Organic wool does what other materials cannot — it wicks away moisture, stays fresh, and acts as a natural fire barrier. It’s also naturally anti-microbial, resistant to dust mites, and offers natural temperature control (to complement our organic latex). Our 100% GOTS organic certified wool is ethically sourced from a collective that we jointly own in India.
ORGANIC CERTIFIED COTTON
Our luxurious, button-tufted mattress covers are made with premium, 100% GOTS organic certified 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. No polyester is blended with our cotton.
STANDARDWith a gentle, yet firm feel, our standard Avocado Green Mattress sets the standard for affordable eco-luxury. At 11-inches thick, it delivers a balanced level of firmness, comfort, and support to create a natural sleeping environment. It is ideal for back and stomach sleepers. Of course, if you ever want to adjust the feel, you can add a plush or firm mattress topper at any time.
OPTIONAL PILLOW-TOPFor a luxury, plush feel, you can upgrade your green bed with an attached plush European-style pillow-top, filled with an additional 2-inch layer (for a total of 5 inches) of GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam. At 13-inches thick, it’s ideal for side sleepers, combination sleepers, athletes, and those in need of pressure relief or a luxurious feel.
Avocado mattresses feature our distinctive, soft, needle-tufted rosettes made from pure white organic wool. Needle-tufting is a time-honored technique dating back to the 17th century. It’s also highly functional. By pulling 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. It radically improves durability. And it's a hallmark of quality.
An Avocado Green 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 5 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.
1,414 COILS + 5 ZONES
HEAVY-DUTY HANDLESTwo 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 green bed is hassle-free. But you never need to flip it!
NO FIRE RETARDANTS, JUST WOOLThe chemical flame retardants used by most mattress manufacturers are toxic, suspected to cause organ toxicity, hair loss, and other neurological damage. There are no flame retardants or synthetic "fire socks" used in an Avocado Green Mattress. So how do we meet federal safety standards without using chemicals? Our Green Mattress uses 100% GOTS organic certified wool, with absolutely no chemical treatments. Where does the wool come from? From our own herding collective, which boasts 150,000+ sheep, 400+ farmers and herders, and 40,000+ hectares of organic pastures across the foothills of the Himalayas.
SAFE & HEALTHYWe don’t use petroleum-based polyurethane foams, memory foams, chemical adhesives to bind our layers, or flame retardants of any kind in our Green Mattress. And we test, inspect, and certify our organic materials, products and processes — in our brand name for trust and transparency. Why care? 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 for low emissions and Formaldehyde Free Certified by the UL Environment. It 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.
Our latex, cotton, and wool have received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification to ensure no harmful chemicals are present. Plus, our Avocado Green Mattress is 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. The certification prohibits all use of harmful substances, such as flame retardants, everywhere in the mattress. Avocado is one of only three mattress brands in the world to meet this new gold standard of safety.

100% GOLS Organic Certified Latex
We use 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 in India, operating under the USDA's National Organic Program. It's made with ≥95% certified organic latex, the highest possible standard. Dunlop latex is naturally antimicrobial, cooler than memory foam, requires no adhesives to seam it together, and is more durable than Talalay latex. It is 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. No blended or synthetic latex is used, there are no seams to break down over time, and no chemical adhesives are used to bind the layers, since our mattress is needle tufted by hand. Plus, our GOLS 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 of international research and science.
100% GOTS Organic Certified Wool
The benefits of wool’s complex and natural physio-chemical structure are endless: it wicks away moisture, keeps your mattress smelling fresh, and acts as yet another all-natural fire barrier. It’s breathable — both warm and cool when you need it. Its natural crimp gives it bounce, body and soft support characteristics. And it’s also non-allergenic (ideal for those who suffer allergies to feather and down or synthetic bedding products) and a renewable resource. No additives or synthetics are added to the wool. At Avocado, we add a layer of pure, naturally crimped 100% GOTS organic certified wool (1 ounce per square foot) under the 100% organic certified cotton ticking in every mattress. We do not blend any rayon, polyester or flame retarding chemicals with our wool. Our organic wool has received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification (19.HIN.68466, 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.

100% GOTS Organic Certified Cotton
For a luxurious and premium finish, we use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton in a soft, natural color. No polyester fiber is used. Responsibly and ethically sourced from India, this durable textile 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), 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 (15.HIN.75800, Hohenstein HTTI). Reinforced edge seams are double stitched and four heavy-duty upholstered handles complete the package.
Pressure-Point Support with 5 Strategic Zones
The Avocado Green Mattress features one of the most advanced, internal, pressure-point support units available made by Leggett & Platt — a Quantum Edge® Elite Combi-Zone®. There are 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. There are 3 wire gauges used: 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 from heat-treated and stress-relieved wire, these upcycled 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.
No Flame Retardants
No flame retardants of any kind are used. Previously, hydrated silica was used, which is listed by the US Food & Drug Administration as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) and has no known toxicity or carcinogenicity. In its place, our Green Mattress (manufactured after June 4, 2019) uses only 100% GOTS organic certified wool, which is naturally fire resistant. This wool has also been tested for harmful substances and meets Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification (19.HIN.68466, Hohenstein HTTI). Of course, as a MADE SAFE® Certified, non-toxic product, no other chemical treatments, rayon blends, or fiberglass fiber fire socks are used.

Firmness Rating & Performance Testing
On a scale of 1 - 10 (with 10 being the firmest) our standard Avocado Green 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.

Unboxing Your Mattress
Unboxing your mattress is easy, but it can be heavy. 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 Green Mattress actually says: Made in California with internal materials (based on weight) consisting of Natural Latex (91%), Natural Wool Fiber (9%), plus a 100% Organic Cotton Cover. On our pillow-top mattress, it consists of Natural Latex (91%), Natural Wool Fiber (9%), plus a 100% Organic Cotton Cover. Note: 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!

PLASTIC OCEANS INTERNATIONAL
People buy 500 billion plastic water bottles worldwide every year. More than 90 percent of all plastics are never recycled. The result? Eight million tons of plastic dumped in the oceans annually. The consequences are devastating — diminished ecosystems and wildlife as well microplastics in our own food and water systems. That’s why Plastic Oceans International is on a mission to end plastic pollution. Through advocacy, activism, education, and science, the nonprofit hopes to change the world’s attitude toward plastic and thereby influence public policy and consumer and corporate behavior.
