Unless you’ve been living way, way off-grid under a rock you’ll have heard of Avocado Green Mattresses. They’ve quickly become a premium name in the competitive mattress industry. In fact, they top the ranks in our picks for the best natural and organic mattresses.
They provide the answer to the question, Is there anything better than a good night’s sleep?
Well, what about a good night’s sleep that’s as good for the planet as it is for you?
That’s what Avocado set out to do in 2016, because after the owners went searching for eco-friendly mattresses they were not impressed with what they found at all.
They say that instead of a wide range of choices that were gentle to the planet and environment they found way too many “grey areas” and an awful lot of greenwashing.
What Does Avocado Do?
The Avocado mantra is “natural, safe & responsible”.
Everything they make is designed and manufactured by hand in California which means they can be certain that their non-toxic, organic and natural standards are followed at every step of the process.
They carry this ethos into their supply chain and general business practices which are meant to deliver an environmentally conscious experience which never loses sight of the ethical requirements to safeguard the health and wellbeing of their clients and to care for the planet on which we live.
How Do I Know That They’re Legit?
Well, Avocado are among only 5 suppliers of mattresses in the United States that have achieved the Global Organic Latex Standard.
This global agreement which guarantees that the latex they use from the harvesting of the raw product all the way through processing and into the final product where issues such as labelling are considered is of the optimal environmental standard.
They are also participants in the Global Organic Textile Standard (same thing but for textiles).
To get these certifications every single step in the supply chain has to be certified and assessed independently and when you consider that they own a latex farm in India, you’ll know that this takes a lot of effort and care to achieve.
Above And Beyond “Green”
They understand that we all “live downstream” when it comes to the manufacturing process and they do not use any chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects, illnesses, hormone imbalances, etc.
They insist that workers are protected and properly compensated at every step in the chain and that there are never any harmful residues in any end product to ensure the well-being of the consumer.
The Proof Is In The Pudding
One thing you can be sure of is that in many cases, when you find an “eco-friendly” option in this world, it’s not so friendly to you – they cut corners in comfort to save the planet.
Avocado mattresses are different and nearly 13,000 happy customers on their website say so.
Their Avocado Green Mattress is their fundamental product and it’s hugely popular and deservedly so.
This is an elegant, attractive product that really does give you an amazing night’s sleep.
Yes, it’s good to the planet but it’s also really good to you and that’s the most important thing when it comes to your bed, right?
