Be sure to check out Why your next mattress should be a green one ft. our honest review after sleeping on our Avocado Green Mattress for over 4 years! Spoiler alert: we’re both still 1000% happy with our purchase!
Your health – Most mattresses contain harmful substances like toxic chemicals, pesticides and dyes — all of which can be absorbed by your body. Avocado pillows and mattresses meet Greenguard Gold standards. Meaning their products have proven to meet the “most rigorous emission standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, and phthalates”. Interesting to note that few mattresses and pillows qualify for this gold standard.
The planet – Avocado is the world’s first Climate Neutral Certified mattress brand. This means they have achieved a verified “net zero carbon footprint” + their mattresses are easy to recycle (the opposite of most mattresses). They are manufactured with biodegradable materials & materials that can be recycled. Meaning the Avocado mattress’s impact on our waste stream & environment is significantly reduced.
If you’ve been considering swapping your cotton sheets out for linen, here is your sign! They really do get more and more dreamy with each wash and we’re so happy with our Organic Linen Sheet set and duvet from Avocado! We went with the white sheets and natural duvet to add some texture and neutral tones to our bedroom.
Linen is a great breathable and cool fabric and is more durable than cotton! Plus it drapes so well and makes for making the bed much easier! I love the look of linen and how it truly gets better with time. I also love that we know this is the finest quality and is 100% GOTS organic certified — the gold standard in environmental and socially responsible textile manufacturing so not only will it last a long time but is also non-toxic and better for the earth!
You spend a third of your life sleeping and unfortunately, the traditional bedding comes from heavy polluted ecosystems that not only damage the surrounding environment but also mean they are farmed with the pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers!
We also added an Organic Quilted Mattress Pad Protector to help extend the life of our mattress by protecting it from sweat and skin oil (I’m a germaphobe!) and we love how soft the pad is – it’s not like the traditional plastic protectors and is free from polyurethane, spandex, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs), formaldehyde, PVCs, vinyls, laminates, adhesives, chemical finishes, and waterproof coatings! It’s literally just GOTS organic certified cotton!
We can’t recommend checking out Avocado Green Mattress enough for your next green mattress or bedding/accessories!

Full disclosure this blog post is sponsored by Avocado Mattress but we purchased our first avocado mattress ourselves & absolutely loved it. So I’m beyond excited for this partnership as we’ve already invested in, slept on (for FOUR years), and love this company.
It starts with us- together, we can change the trajectory of our health & planet.
