Avocado’s Sustainability Efforts:

The Los Angeles-based B Corporation handmakes its products as one way to ensure their direct involvement and understanding of the supply chain and production process. Avocado also regulates its supply chain with a variety of sustainable measures and reporting.

Sustainable Credentials

Avocado is climate-neutral. It has reduced and offsets scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. Unlike other mattresses, Avocado does not use polyurethane.

Polyurethane is used by most brands to make memory foam pillows, mattresses, or other products. A reason Avocado avoids using this material is because “polyurethane foams can contain isocyanates and emit volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. VOCs are harmful chemicals that can cause respiratory irritation and other health problems.”

Instead, Avocado uses GOLS-certified organic latex foams (CU 863637). This is a healthier and more environmentally friendly choice of material. This material is less likely to emit VOCs. Read the Environmental Working Guide’s mattress overview, here.
