Sustainability Story

Avocado Green Mattress is officially the world’s first Climate Neutral Certified mattress. This rigorous certification required first calculating, reducing, and offsetting the complete carbon footprint of the complete scope of our business — from the sourcing of our organic materials to the finished product delivery into our customers’ homes. The goal: achieve “net zero” carbon emissions. We believe in taking action now. We believe that together, individuals and corporations can make a difference for our future generations. Carbon emissions are causing our climate crisis, and we’re ready to be held accountable. But it has to start now. In a world where even the tiniest changes can make a difference, all of our actions matter. Let’s vote with our dollars; let’s protect our planet; let’s let go of the overwhelm in favor of action — together.
