We've all heard the scary statistics about the amount of harmful chemicals that sit within our homes and that are in the products we use daily. That's why more and more home brands are committing to creating clean and organic products. You can now buy everything from purifying fans for fresh air to bamboo and eucalyptus sheet sets that are ethically sourced. Another item you might want to think twice about is right in your bedroom: your mattress.
A majority of the mattresses on the market are made with potentially harmful chemicals and substances like polyurethane foams and flame retardants. Considering the average person spends about 26 years of their life sleeping, going organic is worth considering. A lot of direct-to-consumer retailers were quick to jump on the evolving trend, but the first of its kind from Avocado is, hands down, the most popular. Its tagline for being "America's number one rated certified organic mattress" is quite the statement.

Trying one was on my to-do list for some time, and I'm finally spending my nights sleeping on one. While its impressive stats mostly speak for themselves, I'm here to share my honest review. I have the Avocado Green Mattress With Pillow Top ($2,799, originally $3,199), which is the brand's basic model with an added pillow top for plushness. For a limited time, the bestseller is also on sale at Avocado's major organic sale, which features deals of up to 30 percent off on certified organic mattresses.
Like most DTC mattress brands, it arrived quickly and in a box. It was easy to open and unpack within less than five minutes. My favorite thing: it didn't have that weird plastic scent when I opened it. The look and feel of the material impressed me. The mattress is made with certified organic wool and cotton, and it has both a luxurious and cool-to-the-touch feeling.
The wool is the real hero of this mattress; the organic fiber does what other materials can't. While it's known for wicking away moisture, making it temperature regulating (great for sweaty sleepers), it's also antimicrobial and resistant to dust mites. The material acts as a natural fire barrier, which is why you go without the chemicals here.
Instantly, it felt soft, cozy, and, most of all, supportive. I've tested a lot of all-foam mattress, and this one has 1,414 pocketed support coils (part of its impressive stats), and I could feel the weight of them instantly. The mattress has this bounce-back feeling when you sit on it, knowing you're getting support from head to toe.

On a comfort level, this one is a pure winner. The brand describes it as a gentle firm choice, ideal for side and combination sleepers. I would agree with this, as I sleep both on my side and back, and I found it the perfect amount of soft yet supportive. I like plush choices, so this model with the pillow top is what I would recommend if you also like that cloud-like feeling. Otherwise, if you prefer firmer options, you can opt for the basic mattress without it.
I've tested the Casper and Purple mattresses, and each one has its pros and cons for me and the type of sleeper I am. In my opinion, the Avocado Mattress was not only one of the more comfortable models I've ever slept on, but the organic materials make it a winner, too. If you're someone focused on having an eco-friendly household, this one is worth the splurge. I can't ignore that the price tag is high, but when it comes to sustainability and fair-trade-sourced home goods, you get the quality that you pay a premium for.
Need more convincing? The brand offers a one-year trial period and a 25-year warranty, so you can feel confident about truly loving it. Until May 15, you can score a free organic pillow with the purchase of a Green, Vegan, Latex, or Luxury Organic mattress with the code "FREEPILLOW." If you're considering an adjustable base, you can get $250 off Avocado's Eco Plus Adjustable Base. Even the brand's robes and pajamas are 15 percent off!
