Avocado Green Mattress manufactures sustainable mattresses and accessories, and recently expanded its vegan range to include a GOTS-certified organic cotton mattress protector. The company launched its first vegan mattress in the summer of 2018.
The new mattress protector does not contain any animal-derived materials, polyurethanes, elastane, thermoplastic polyurethanes, formaldehyde, PVCs, vinyls, laminates, adhesives, chemical paints, or waterproof coatings. It is made from GOTS-certified organic cotton and has an absorbent cotton fiber filling.
In addition to the vegan mattress it introduced in the summer of 2018 and its new mattress protector, Avocado Green Mattress also sells vegan pillows filled with natural latex and kapok fibers. All products are handcrafted in the company’s own factory in Los Angeles with non-toxic and renewable materials.
In addition to its partially vegan and sustainable manufacturing, the company is committed to donating 1% of all sales to non-profit organizations. In 2018, twelve national and international projects were funded by these organizations. Amongst the projects supported was a women’s centre in Rwanda, which planted 48,250 trees. In addition, some 220,000 pounds of food were grown for New Yorkers in need.
