Debating between an Avocado Green Mattress and a GhostBed Natural Mattress? First, review a few key facts:

Is the GhostBed® Natural Mattress certified as organic?

No. The GhostBed® Natural mattress is not a certified organic mattress and not listed on the GOTS public database. A GOTS certified product is made with certified organic materials in a facility that is also certified for organic production. A GOTS logo and certification require a license number (Avocado's GOTS license is CU863637). Furthermore, a USDA Organic Seal or USDA claim can not be used or implied in association with a finished mattress.

Does GhostBed® Natural use GOLS certified organic Latex?

No. GhostBed® is not listed with Control Union as having a valid certificate on file, or an active application on file, for GOLS certified organic latex (Avocado's GOLS license is CU863637). Similarly, no license numbers are used in the marketing materials when GOLS latex claims are made.

Is the GhostBed® Natural mattress certified as nontoxic?

No. The GhostBed® Natural mattress has no relevant and reliable scientific evidence, such as third-party certifications, to support any nontoxic claims that their mattress is safe for both people and the environment. Relevant and missing certifications include the MADE SAFE® nontoxic seal, Greenguard Gold for safe emissions (VOCs) and Formaldehyde-Free claim verification.
