Avocado Green Mattress Adds Carbonfree® Commitment to Sustainability Initiatives
Thursday, 10 May 2018
At Avocado Green Mattress, the mission is to be the most respected source for green mattresses and pillows at affordable prices — while maintaining environmentally conscious, ethical and sustainable business practices — to help safeguard customers’ health and protect our planet. As part of the company’s environment commitment, there’s a keen focus on green materials, on promoting sustainability, making their products by hand and only on-demand, focusing on quality and durability, minimizing waste, and creating products that are largely recyclable and biodegradable.
The folks at Avocado Green Mattress are reducing their carbon footprint through forward-thinking energy reductions and efficiencies, combined with cost-effective carbon offsets, to eliminate their overall carbon footprint. To achieve this goal, Avocado Green Mattress chose to partner with Carbonfund.org, supporting third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects globally to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the threat of climate change.
“We are a green business, passionately focused on environment sustainability, economic sustainability and social sustainability,” explains Mark Abrials, Head of Brand + Digital at Avocado Green Mattress. “Our partnership with Carbonfund.org helps us to reduce and offset our carbon footprint, thereby benefitting the environment and helping us to achieve our overall sustainability goals.”
Avocado Green Mattresses are handmade in California with natural and organic materials, including 100% natural latex from tree-tapped and sustainable sources, natural New Zealand wool and certified organic cotton. Their mattresses and pillows are Greenguard Gold Certified by UL Environment. There are no polyurethane foams to break down, no memory foams to off-gas, no solvent-based adhesives to emit chemical odors, and no chemical flame retardants to endanger health. Carbonfund.org welcomes Avocado Green Mattress as a sustainability leader and Carbonfree® Business Partner.
