OVERVIEW

Avocado creates sustainably made mattresses and bedding crafted with natural and organic materials. The company is a certified B Corp and a member of 1% for the Planet, and its products are certified climate neutral. Released in 2022, the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress aims to offer the same advantages as its predecessors at a more competitive price-point.

The Avocado Eco Organic Mattress is a 10-inch hybrid model made with organic cotton and wool, organic latex, and an 8-inch pocketed coil support core. The coils feature three zones designed to reinforce the edges and provide targeted spinal support. In terms of firmness, the Eco Organic Mattress falls at a 6 out of 10, or medium firm.

In addition to the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress, the brand also sells the flagship Avocado Green Mattress, a wool-free version called the Avocado Vegan, and the Organic Luxury Mattress, a latex hybrid with additional layers for added pressure relief.

We’ll delve into more detail regarding the characteristics of the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress and examine what makes it unique among the brand’s models. We’ll also discuss practical details related to shipping, Avocado’s sleep trial, and warranty policies to help you make your decision.

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

As with most latex hybrids, the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress transfers a fair amount of motion across the bed. This may cause disruptions for sleep partners when the other person rolls over or gets in and out of bed.

Although the wool and latex conform somewhat to the sleeper, the materials don’t contour closely enough to effectively absorb movement. Likewise, despite being individually wrapped, the coils in the support core are naturally responsive and transfer more motion than a polyfoam support core.

Hybrids are generally not known for their motion isolation. Sleepers who wake easily from their partner’s movements may prefer a memory foam mattress.

Pressure Relief

With a comfort system measuring just over 2 inches, the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress delivers average pressure relief.

The wool quilting and Dunlop latex provide moderate contouring to help cushion points where the sleeper makes the most contact with the mattress. In the support core, the pocketed coils are designed to flex individually for targeted pressure relief and spinal support.

Sleepers of most body types and sleep positions should experience decent pressure relief from the Eco Organic Mattress.

Due to its medium firm feel, the model provides optimal pressure relief for back and stomach sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds. These individuals sink in just the right amount to benefit from the combination of wool, latex, and coils.

Side sleepers over 230 pounds also receive strong pressure relief from this design.

Temperature Control

Like many latex hybrids, the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress excels at temperature control.

The comfort system only features highly breathable materials. The cotton cover and moisture-wicking wool layers help transfer heat away from the sleeper, and the Dunlop latex contains multiple pincore holes to supplement its natural breathability. In the support core, pocketed coils allow ample room for airflow to prevent heat retention.

Because sleepers mostly stay on top of the bed instead of sinking in, the surface resists heat buildup around the body. Its thoughtful design makes the Eco Organic Mattress ideal for hot sleepers.

Edge Support

The Avocado Eco Organic Mattress offers above-average edge support, largely due to the reinforced perimeter in the support core. The medium firm feel also contributes to edge support, as it prevents excessive sinking under pressure.

Edge support can be helpful when climbing in and out of bed, and it provides a better sense of security when sitting or sleeping near the perimeter of the bed. This may be appealing for couples who share a smaller bed, as strong perimeter support allows for full use of a bed from edge to edge.

Hybrid mattresses often provide strong edge support, as steel coils tend to hold up better than polyfoam. Ratings for the Eco Organic Mattress are on par with ratings of most latex hybrid competitors.

Ease of Movement

Resilient wool fibers, Dunlop latex, and pocketed coils give the Eco Organic Mattress a responsive surface that permits easy movement on top of the bed.

Latex hybrid models typically suit combination sleepers because the mattress style makes it easy to switch sleep positions. Ease of movement is also an important consideration for individuals with limited movement. The medium firm feel of the Eco Organic Mattress allows for minimal sinkage as well.

Sex

Most partners should find that the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress meets their needs. This model offers notable bounce and strong edge support that facilitates full use of the bed. Its breathable construction also reduces overheating, and the wool and latex layers add traction and help cushion potential pressure points.

Because it contains metal coils in the support core, the Eco Organic Mattress may produce some noise under pressure. This may be something to keep in mind for those who want to be discreet. As the mattress has a relatively thin comfort system, couples may also experience pressure points after staying in one position for an extended period of time.

Off-Gassing

As a latex hybrid made from natural materials, the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress does not off-gas in the typical sense.

Shoppers may notice a faint rubbery smell from the latex or a damp smell from the wool when they first open the mattress. These odors are nothing to be concerned about, and they should dissipate quickly once the mattress has aired out.

Off-gassing refers to the chemical scent that new mattresses often emit. The smell is caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) being released upon contact with the air.

Part of the appeal of the Eco Organic Mattress is its lack of synthetic foams and chemical adhesives. Because of this, the mattress does not emit VOCs. Individuals who are sensitive to smell or who are concerned about chemicals in their bedding may find that natural latex hybrids present an attractive alternative.

Side Sleepers:
The Avocado Eco Organic Mattress performs well for side sleepers in all weight groups, particularly those weighing more than 230 pounds.

Wool and latex in the comfort system contour to reduce pressure buildup. The pocketed coils form a moderate cradle and allow the hips and shoulders to sink in slightly, encouraging healthy spinal alignment.

Side sleepers over 230 pounds exert more pressure on the mattress and experience deeper contouring as a result. Those under 230 pounds should also sleep comfortably, but they may experience slight pressure points after staying in the same position for too long.

Back Sleepers:
The medium firm Eco Organic Mattress comfortably accommodates most back sleepers with a good balance of support and pressure relief. The comfort system contours to prevent pressure buildup in the lower back, while the pocketed coils provide sturdy support to keep the spine aligned.

The mattress performs best for those between 130 and 230 pounds. Some back sleepers under 130 pounds may prefer a softer mattress with more conforming, while those weighing more than 230 pounds may experience some sinkage in the midsection.

Stomach Sleepers:
The medium firm Eco Organic Mattress maintains spinal alignment for most stomach sleepers. Sleepers require a firmer surface in this position, as overly soft surfaces can allow the midsection to sink in too far and put pressure on the back.

As with back sleepers, the moderate contouring of the Eco Organic Mattress suits stomach sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds. For these individuals, the relatively firm Dunlop latex and pocketed coils ensure reliable spinal support and sufficient pressure relief.

The mattress may be too firm for stomach sleepers under 130 pounds who experience pressure points when lying facedown. Conversely, those who weigh more than 230 pounds may require a firmer surface to keep the hips in line.

Avocado Eco Organic Mattress Review Breakdown

The Avocado Eco Organic Mattress is a latex hybrid measuring 10 inches tall. The mattress has an organic cotton cover quilted with organic wool. The responsive, breathable first layer helps wick away moisture and is intended to keep the sleeper cool and dry.

Beneath this, a 2-inch layer of organic Dunlop latex supplies responsiveness and moderate pressure relief. Dunlop latex is a durable material that tends to sleep cooler than synthetic foams. The latex is also aerated with pincore holes to increase airflow.

The final layer consists of an 8-inch pocketed coil support core made with recycled steel. A reinforced perimeter helps ensure stronger edge support, and a firmer zone in the center third of the mattress is intended to boost spinal alignment by supporting the lumbar area. The queen size option features 789 coils, helping to promote airflow and a cooler sleep.

The mattress rests on a thin layer of organic cotton canvas, with a thin strip of decorative green tape along the bottom perimeter. All the textiles used in the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and the latex is certified by the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS).

Like Avocado’s other mattresses, this model is made in Los Angeles. The Eco Organic Mattress has a simpler design than other Avocado models and lacks a pillow-top option. Instead of hand-tufting, the layers are secured together with hog rings made from recycled steel. Four handles positioned strategically on the sides help users reposition the mattress on top of the bed frame.

The latex and wool used to make Avocado’s mattresses comes from co-owned farms and undergoes a stringent verification process to ensure fair and sustainable processing. Avocado shrink-wraps the Eco Organic Mattress for a smaller shipping footprint, and minimizes the use of plastic by using an outer paper layer.

The Eco Organic Mattress carries certifications from GREENGUARD Gold and Climate Neutral that indicate it meets standards for chemical emissions. The latex, cotton, and wool are certified free of harmful substances by OEKO-TEX, and the latex is certified sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council, the eco-INSTITUT, and the Rainforest Alliance.

Mattress Prices and Sizing

The Avocado Eco Organic Mattress features an attractive price-point within the latex hybrid category. Using organic materials tends to raise the price of a mattress, particularly when it carries certifications from third-party organizations. But the price of the Eco Organic Mattress remains fairly low despite its many sustainable certifications.

In part, the lower price reflects its more basic design compared with the Avocado Green or Organic Luxury Mattress. However, the Eco Organic Mattress comes in at a lower price-point than many competing models. Shoppers can also expect the bed to have a longer-than-average lifespan if they properly care for it.
