A good mattress is key to having a peaceful night sleep and a “green mattress” is a dream team in the bedroom.
New Jersey-based Avocado have created a green and eco-friendly mattress using 100% natural latex rubber harvested from sustainable tree-tapped sources, natural Joma New Zealand wool, certified organic cotton and recycled steel-support coils.
The materials used in Avocado green mattresses are natural and non-toxic meaning a healthy option for you and your loved ones.
Eco-conscious brand Avocado are transparent in their business practice from the get go.
Avocado say: “Our mission is to provide you and your family a healthy, safe and luxurious sleep environment while reducing our impact on the environment.”
Most of the 35 million mattresses sold in the US each year contain toxins and petro chemicals. Once owners are done with these mattresses, they end up in landfills where toxic chemicals leech from the mattresses and contaminate the wider environment through seepage into groundwater.
Using only eco-friendly and sustainable materials, Avocado mattresses are biodegradable and recyclable, meaning when you have got your years-worth of use from the mattress, it will not be an environmental issue for landfill.
The upfront cost of an Avocado green mattress, which start from $959 for a twin and up to $1599 for a king size mattress, is not cheap, but given that you are likely to get daily use out of the mattress for at least 10 years, it is an affordable and sustainable option. There are also financing options offered by Avocado, which can be spread across a time period.
Avocado’s eco-friendly, no frills policy extends to the products being shipped in plain brown boxes with no branding, and the mattresses are “born” only after they are ordered and so reducing environmental impact. The money the brand save on “fancy packaging” allows Avocado to contribute to featured charities such as the International Justice Mission, a non-profit global organisation that protects the poor from violence and oppression in the developing world.
