Silk & Snow® is a new Canadian mattress brand offering polyurethane foam mattresses and an "organic mattress" that is intended to mimic the distinctive look of the Avocado Green Mattress — the highest-rated organic mattress in the United States (Consumer Reports 2018 - 2023, US News & World Report, 2021-2023). But there are significant differences between the two brands:

  • The Silk & Snow® "organic mattress" is not a GOTS-certified organic mattress. As per their certificate published on the Global Organic Textile Standard public database, only their cotton is certified organic. The scope of their certification only certifies that they may retail and warehouse GOTS-certified products, not that they manufacture any GOTS-certified organic products.

  • The Silk & Snow® organic mattress does not have the MADE SAFE® non-toxic seal and is not Greenguard Gold certified for safe emissions or verified to be Formaldehyde-Free.

  • Silk & Snow® is not B-Corp or Climate Neutral Certified, nor does it incorporate an essential and verified giving initiative through 1% for the Planet.

  • The Silk & Snow® mattress is not needle-tufted by hand and does not include reinforced handles to help move and rotate your mattress.

  • The Silk & Snow® mattress costs more than the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress and contains less organic latex and fewer pocketed support coils than the Avocado Green Mattress.
