Avocado’s vision as a conscious lifestyle brand is to create products that balance health and wellness with social responsibility and sustainability. Avocado ethically sources their natural and organic certified materials directly from sustainable, ethical and socially-conscious sources. From the Farm to the Bedroom, they jointly-own their organic certified latex processing facility, latex farms and wool & cotton collectives. Avocado Green Mattresses are designed in Hoboken and handmade in California, in their own GOTS & GOLS organic certified factory, with a mission to be the most respected source for organic and natural mattresses, pillows and bedding at affordable prices – while maintaining environmentally conscious, ethical and sustainable business practices across our entire supply chain — to help safeguard your health and protect our planet. One percent of all revenues are donated to environmental nonprofits per Avocado’s membership with 1% For The Planet.
Avocado is the first Climate Neutral® Certified mattress brand having achieved “net zero” carbon emissions across their entire operations. The Santa Monica showroom purchases 100% green power for electricity through the Clean Power Alliance. In addition to natural light allowed in through skylights, Avocado installed circadian lighting technology; mimicking natural sunlight patterns for improved health and well-being of staff and guests. The showroom also launched a zero-waste operation, adding an ‘organics bin’ collection to their material recycling and recovery program. Other showroom features include low VOC paints, and essential oil aromatherapy diffusers. All cleaning products are nontoxic and /or third party green certified by Green Seal or US EPA Safer Choice. Supplies are procured from RAW office, a certified B Corporation company that gives preference to stocking eco-friendly office products and organic snacks. Lastly, the showroom staff upcycles left over scrap material from mattress manufacturing into décor pieces displayed throughout the store!
