Founded in 2015 as an eco-friendly answer to the bed-in-a-box boom, Avocado has since grown into one of the premier green companies in the sleep space. Combining dunlop latex with all-natural wool, organic cotton and recycled steel coils, the brand’s flagship hybrid mattress aims to be as comfortable as it is easy on the environment.

But a bed can’t rest on green laurels alone, so I’ll be putting it through my series of rigorous tests to figure out how it feels, how it sleeps and whether or not it might just be the mattress of your dreams!


Avocado’s Standard Green Mattress features a simple two-layer design of latex and pocketed coils, measuring up to an 12” profile. The combination of materials is intended to create a sleeping experience that’s as pressure-relieving as it is supportive all while providing the sleeper with plenty of bounce.

I should note that the Green Mattress also comes in a Pillow-Top version, which includes an extra 2” layer of latex up top for added comfort.

Cover – Built with organic cotton and quilted with New Zealand wool, the cover of the Green Mattress is super soft and gentle, providing the sleeper with immediate comfort.

Comfort Layer – Under the cover, you’ll find 2” of all-natural dunlop latex. This material has some great bounce to it and works to keep the sleeper positioned on top of the bed. Another fantastic benefit of latex is that it’s naturally cooling, so will help to regulate temperature throughout the mattress. You’ll also notice that this layer is perforated with small holes, which help with breathability and airflow.

Support Layer – Making up the bulk of the bed is an 8” section of pocketed support coils. These springs double down on the bounce in the comfort layer, imbuing the structure with a buoyant lift. This layer is also broken down into three separate zones, intended to bring targeted relief to different parts of the body.

A great review. I am considering purchasing the Avocado Green Mattress but have concerns now after watching the video and reading your review since I’m a side sleeper (petite woman approx 140 lbs). Being I have neck and lower back issues, I am not sure if the Avocado pillow top version is the best option for me. I was very pleased with the price and that it was also highly recommended by Consumer Reports. I have researched mattresses for hours and it is very challenging when you are looking for a natural, non-toxic mattress but one that will also benefit your overall everyday well being. Any tips you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thinking of getting the Avocado Green Mattress. Your review is by far the best and most comprehensive I’ve seen on YouTube. Thank you! My current Sterns and Foster mattress is firm. I’ve had it for more years than I’d like to admit, and feel it’s time to move on. I’m a side sleeper. I never had any issue with pressure points (sore shoulders, etc.), with my current firm mattress. What’s making the decision challenging is most reviewers of the Avocado mention that the pillow top version is good for side sleepers, vs. the pillow-less top version. I’ve never owned a plush-top mattress. Decisions, decisions. 🙂

Michael Sullivan says:

Glad you did this review – I was viewing some of your Nest reviews and was happy to see this one for a comparison. I’ve had a lot of problems with mattress store memory foam beds. I consistently experienced the memory foam softening too much when it warmed up – especially in the summer. I’d wake up in a completely different comfort level than I went to sleep in, often causing shoulder pain. They never felt too hot, just too soft on hot days.

So where I stand now is – I don’t trust memory foam at all. I’m hoping latex will be a better fit for me. I’m 6’2″ and 205 pounds. Not sure about going with coils under the foam or not. Your ‘how to buy’ guide mentions heavier people should look for 4 inches of comfort foam – any that you’d suggest giving what I said above? The How to also attempts to distinguish softness from support – do you go into that in any more detail elsewhere?

Thanks again for the review.

Would like to see a comparison between this mattress and the Cedar from Brentwood Home.

Hello. We have this mattress and while it is very well made and we love that it is organic, it is way too firm (even with the topper and then we added our own topper) and there is so much bounce when my husband rolls over – I wake up. Do you have any recommendations for an organic or low VOC mattress for side sleepers that has a low motion transfer rate? Thank you in advance!
