A Nectar® mattress is nothing like an Avocado Organic Mattress. Nectar® mattresses are made of petroleum-based polyurethane foams. "According to the FTC's recent settlement, Nectar Brand LLC claimed in promotional materials that its mattresses were 'Designed and Assembled in USA,' but in fact the mattresses are wholly imported from China, with no assembly taking place in the United States."

In contrast, Avocado mattresses are made in Los Angeles, California, in a factory we own, with organic latex and wool sourced from our farms and facilities in Guatemala and India. Avocado is a GOTS certified organic product, with an extensive list of certifications for sustainability and social responsibility. Better still, Avocado is also one of the highest rated mattresses in America.
