THE BEST NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
The Avocado Green Pillow is an all natural indulgence that perfectly complements our Green Mattress. Our organic pillows are made with 100% GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam ribbons and GOTS organic certified kapok fiber, generously stuffed inside a luxurious, high-thread count cover made of GOTS organic certified cotton. They sleep cool, light and airy. And they provide the support and resilience needed for all sleeping positions as they effortlessly contour to your neck and head.
ORGANIC LATEX RUBBER RIBBONS
Ribbons of 100% GOLS organic certified latex, made in the USA from sustainably harvested and organic sources, provide support and structure to our Green pillow. The organic latex is an eco-conscious, high-performance material, offering exceptional resilience, durability, and temperature control.
ORGANIC KAPOK FIBER FROM THE CEIBA TREE
With the smoothness of silk and fluffiness of cotton, GOTS organic certified Kapok fiber is an ideal eco-conscious pillow stuffing. It is a softer, lighter and vegan alternative to down. The silk has natural loft and can be fluffed. It's also hypoallergenic, sustainable, biodegradable, nontoxic, and grown pesticide-free.
100% GOTS 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 Organic OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, Class 1 Certification.
NATURAL & ORGANIC MATERIALSThe Avocado Green Pillow is a natural and organic certified indulgence that perfectly complements our Avocado Green Mattress. It’s made with 100% GOLS organic certified latex rubber (upcycled from the same latex that we use in our mattresses) and 100% GOTS organic certified plant fiber from the Kapok tree, generously stuffed inside a ridiculously luxurious 100% GOTS organic certified cotton cover. They sleep cool and provide the contouring support needed for all sleeping positions.
SAFE & NON-TOXIC
Synthetic pillows are made with petroleum-based products and chemicals, and can actually impact your breathing and health. However, our non toxic pillow is made with only natural and certified organic materials. It’s one of the most healthy, chemical-free pillows that you can buy anywhere, at any price.
You can spot clean your Avocado Green Pillow with a damp, white cloth, allowing it to air dry in a sunny, breezy spot. To fluff your pillow, place it in a tumble dryer on cool. You can also wash it gently with cool water, but just don’t use bleach. And to refresh your pillow before bed time, just give it a good fluff.
ADJUST FILL TO SUIT
Our non toxic pillows come voluptuously stuffed, delivering a medium-plush feel. However, if you prefer to change the feel, a convenient zipper allows you to remove fill and adjust it to meet your ideal stuffing volume, firmness and sleeping preferences. Alternatively, you can also add fill at any time, with our convenient pillow refill packages, to add volume and extend the life of your pillow.
LUXURIATE IN GREENER SLEEPVoluptuously stuffed, our Organic Pillows provide dynamic, resilient support that conforms to every sleeping position and body type — without the use of petroleum-based polyurethane foams or gels. They never bottom-out, and provide much needed pressure relief for your head and neck all night long. They are, in fact, the perfect complement to our Avocado Green Mattress.
Our pillows are handmade with only the finest GOTS and GOLS organic certified materials, in our own GOTS & GOLS organic certified factory in California. The result is a finished product that is fully GOTS organic certified. This may seem redundant, but these overlapping levels of quality assurance deliver a big win for the environment, our valued farmers and factory team members, and of course, our customers.
Every Avocado Organic pillow is GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment. It means they’re scientifically tested to meet the world’s most rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde and phthalates. Few pillows qualify for this gold standard. For a deeper dive into indoor air quality, pollutants and your health, visit our Greenguard Gold Certification page.

No Chemical Flame Retardants
The Avocado Green Pillows contains no chemical flame retardants, which are known to release VOCs and impact human health. We do not add them because we believe they generally do more harm than good. (FYI: Pillows are not required to pass The Standard for the Flammability of Mattresses and Mattress Pads, issued by the CPSC. Therefore, it is logical that ignition sources should be kept safely away from all any pillow that contains natural materials without the use of chemical flame retardants.)
Vegan Certified – No Wool or Animal Products
Avocado vegan products contain no animal products or animal by-products, such as wool. We do, however, produce products that do 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 Neutral Production & Shipping

A law label is a legally required tag or label on new mattress or pillow 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 is what the legal tag on the standard Avocado Green Pillow actually says: Made in California with internal materials consisting of natural latex (70%) and kapok fiber (30%), based on weight.
