Debating between an Avocado Green Mattress and a Natural Escape by My Green Mattress?

Avocado's Green Mattress and the Natural Escape by My Green Mattress® are both hybrid mattresses, which means they combine layers of natural foam for comfort and pressure relief with innersprings for durable support. Although My Green Mattress® has modeled their product and website designs to mimic Avocado, there are important differences.

  1. Avocado is the #1 rated innerspring hybrid in America from 2018 - 2021.

  2. Avocado uses the best innerspring unit available, with more springs, more zones, more gauges and more coil sizes, This matters. The innerspring unit is a costly and critical component in a hybrid mattress. Fewer springs means less support, less durability, less body contouring, and more motion transfer across the mattress.

  3. Avocado has a 1-year trial, while My Green Mattress offers only 120 nights (9 months shorter),

  4. Avocado has a 25-year limited warranty, while My Green Mattress offers only a 10-year limited warranty.

  5. Avocado makes their own products, and many of the source materials, in Los Angeles, with more than 700,00 square feet of production and logistics space. The Avocado factory has been making mattresses since 1987. We even make our own furniture and have our own farms that produce our own certified organic latex and certified organic wool. In contrast, My Green Mattress sources their wool and latex from subcontractors.

  6. Avocado Green Mattress is a MADE SAFE® certified product — one of the most stringent certification for ecological and human safety. Simply put, MADE SAFE® has determined that all of the materials we use in them are free from ingredients linked to or suspected to cause harm to humans, animals, or ecosystems.

  7. Avocado is 100% carbon negative business, verified by a Climate Neutral Certification®, 20 years ahead of the target set by the Paris Agreements.

  8. Avocado is approaching zero waste — and is the first mattress and bedding company to have its Landfill Waste Diversion rated and validated by UL.

  9. Avocado is one of the world's most sustainable and radically transparent brands, with verified giving programs through 1% for the Planet® for environmental and social responsibility.
