Awara is owned by Resident, a repeat offender of fraud, as ruled by the FTC. As such, carefully reviewing Awara mattress' marketing claims (related to organic and toxicity claims, for example) is important:

  1. Awara mattress is not a certified organic product and is not listed on the GOTS public database. A GOTS-certified organic product is made with certified organic materials in a facility that is also certified for organic production. Avocado is certified and publicly listed. This matters. The GOTS certification ensures — using on-site inspections and verification of records from the farm to the factory — that the organic materials and finished product are healthy for you, safe for the people that made them, and good for the environment; while at the same time, it ensures that social responsibility standards (ethical animal treatment, living wages, etc.) are met across the supply chain.

  2. Awara does not use 100% organic cotton. In truth, Awara uses up to 69% polyester. See their mattress legal tag below.

  3. Avocado uses GOTS-certified organic wool (from our own farms) to naturally inhibit flammability and meet all safety standards. Awara uses hydrated silica. As a result of this, as well as the high use of polyester, aramids, and adhesives, the Awara mattress is not MADE SAFE® certified — one of the highest standards for products, ensuring that they are safe for humans and the environment.

  4. All Avocado claims are backed by trusted, third-party certifications in our brand name, for radical transparency and responsibility. Even Avocado's giving initiatives through 1% for the Planet® are verified. Awara has no public certifications for any material or the finished product.
