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 - 2022, US News & World Report, 2021-2022). But there are big differences between the two brands:

  • The Silk & Snow® organic mattress is not a GOTS certified organic mattress and not listed on the Global Organic Textile Standard public database).

  • 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.
