Avocado Green Mattress

1 Comment

Avocado Green Mattress started in 2015 when the founders wanted an affordable mattress made from non-toxic, natural and organic materials. When they couldn’t find what they were looking for, Avocado was founded. What they created was an eco-friendly mattress that features 100% natural Dunlop latex rubber harvested from sustainable tree-tapped sources, natural New Zealand wool and certified organic cotton. This creates a mattress that delivers a gentle, yet firm sleeping experience that users seem to enjoy. Avocado Green mattresses are handcrafted in the USA without the use of petroleum-based polyurethane foam, without toxic flame-retardants, and without dangerous pesticides. The company offers free shipping, along with a 100-night risk-free sleep trial and a 25 year limited warranty against any manufacturer’s defects or defects in workmanship.

Avocado Green Mattresses are designed with an 8-inch support unit comprised of recycled steel innersprings in the center, with Natural Dunlop Latex on top and bottom of the innersprings. Mattresses are topped with 100% natural New Zealand Wool, which wicks away moisture and acts as a natural fire barrier, and held together with organic cotton ticking. For additional softness, they offer a pillow-top version that has an additional 2” of natural latex attached, and they even offer a vegan mattress that is made without wool.

Avocado Green Mattress is designed to work on a rigid, non-spring foundation, platform, adjustable bed base or slatted foundation. Since a box spring has internal springs, most people would not prefer the feel of an Avocado on a box spring, as it tends to make the sleeping experience too “springy” for most customer preferences. They do recommend if you do have a box spring, putting a piece of plywood between the box spring and the mattress. The flat surface will offer the firm, non-yielding surface that is ideal. Their company does offer natural wood bed frames as well as eco bed wood frames anywhere from $1,845- $2,805 depending on type and size.

As far as environmentally friendly, Avocado Green Mattress is on top of the pack. Their cotton is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Every Avocado mattress and pillow they sell is GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment. They use 100% natural Dunlop latex rubber tested and certified by the eco-INSTITUT®, which is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and is inherently resistant to mold, mildew and bacteria. Avocado Green Mattress was awarded the Green Business Certification by Green America®. The use of recycled steel support coils, certified organic cotton and pure Joma New Zealand Wool shows Avocado’s commitment to the environment. Avocado Green Mattress is also members of 1% for the Planet, and US Green Building Council.

No Comments

Naturepedic was founded in 2003 by a grandfather-to-be who realized there were no crib mattresses available without questionable chemicals, potential allergens or hazardous flame-retardants. Therefore, with safety in mind, this grandfather made his own crib mattress. The company has since grown to carry not only organic baby crib mattresses, but to include certified organic, non-GMO, non-toxic mattresses and bedding for the whole family.

Naturepedic is not like many other mattresses out on the market today as they do not offer free shipping. What they do offer is a variety of mattress types, and depending on the style of mattress that you do purchase, they offer anywhere from a 30 – 90 day money back guarantee less all actual shipping charges. All of their mattresses offer a limited warranty of at least 10 years. Their crib mattresses offer a lifetime warranty, and their EOS and Luxury mattresses carry a 20-year warranty. Their luxury lines of mattresses unfortunately, are not available for purchase online, and there are many locations across the US that do not have reasonable access to their retail stores.

For those looking for a chemical free mattress that does not contain latex, they offer a variety of options from their Chorus mattress, to their EOS and Luxury mattresses in which they can substitute the latex with high-density microcoils or organic cotton. On some styles, you can even select different comfort levels for you and your sleep partner. Naturepedic also offers the opportunity to swap out comfort layer(s) free within 90 days and only pay for shipping. For those with latex allergy concerns, you can build your dream organic mattress by substituting latex for microcoils.

Naturepedic mattresses are designed for use on most any type of foundation. Naturepedic offers their own foundation that is made with organic cotton fabric and batting, and constructed from wood that is grown and harvested using industry-standard responsible sourcing practices. Prices range from $299 to $899 depending on size. They also offer an adjustable bed base with organic upholstery with prices ranging from $2,599 to $5,199 depending on size.

Naturepedic’s efforts to make healthier and chemically safer mattresses and bedding are evidenced by the certifications their mattresses have received. They are certified with both the Global Organic Textile Standard, as well as the Global Organic Latex Standard. They are GREENGUARD Gold certified, Non-GMO verified, Organic Content Standard certified, formaldehyde free verified, and MADE SAFE certified. They are also members of the 1% for the Planet.
