We’re proud to craft our top-rated mattresses and bedding with 100% Global Organic Textile Standard certified cotton from India. We have several layers of checks and balances to ensure the legitimacy of our organic materials. Avocado’s supply chain, including wool, latex, and cotton, is thoroughly vetted by the USDA’s National Organic Program standards to ensure its integrity. Then there’s GOTS. According to GOTS, customers should be confident that cotton in a GOTS-certified product is always organic. GOTS only allows fibers to enter the supply chain that are certified according to the standards of the IFOAM family and that have gone through mandatory checks. (You can read more about GOTS’ thorough validation process here.)
But we’re not stopping there to ensure the authenticity of our organic materials. By the end of 2024, we plan to have all materials verified by blockchain. We will achieve this by the end of 2022 with our wool and latex, and over the past two years we’ve been establishing this documentation with our cotton as well. Blockchain ensures traceability. Every single step in the supply chain is inspected, verified, documented, and secured. By harnessing this technology, we’re validating that when we say a material is organic, we can show that’s true 100% of the time.
