If you're considering adding a wedge pillow to your bed, the best option is always organic — especially for those with health concerns.

Most wedge pillows are made from toxic polyurethane foam and a polyester cover. These petroleum-based materials release toxic chemicals into the air during a process known as off-gassing — which can be intensified by the heat from your body when you sleep. These harsh substances negatively impact indoor air quality and the environment and are associated with health concerns like asthma, respiratory problems, and skin irritation.

At Avocado, we craft our Organic Latex Wedge Pillow entirely from natural, organic, non-toxic materials. We cover the GOLS-certified organic latex core with a GOTS-certified organic cotton cover that's removable and machine washable. Our materials are sustainably and ethically sourced and processed and never include toxic chemicals, adhesives, or glues harmful to your health. That means no off-gassing, either.

Natural, organic latex is better for you, your family, and our farmers, and it offers superior body-hugging support compared to polyurethane memory foam.
