We believe climate change is a fundamental issue of our time, and we are committed to doing something about it.
In 2019, Avocado Green Mattress became the first mattress company to become Climate Neutral Certified, effectively making our business "carbon neutral." A year later, we took it a step further by going carbon negative — offsetting more carbon emissions than the company generates. We do that by reducing everything we can, then by offsetting all of our scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. That's the the full carbon footprint that our business activity generates, from resource extraction to finished product delivery.
Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions. Carbon offsets are vehicles for paying to remove carbon from the atmosphere or prevent greenhouse gases from getting there in the first place by financing things like forest conservation or clean energy. For 2019, we funded verified projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation to purchase 30,000 offsets. You can read more about our offset program here.
