Avocado Green Pillow

Living sustainably includes more than eating healthy and reducing plastics; it’s also important to avoid exposure to harmful toxins. Unfortunately, most people spend up to one third of their lives wallowing in chemicals each night while sleeping. This is due to the fact that most pillows and mattresses are made with petroleum-based synthetics and dowsed in flame-retardant chemicals that can impact your health over prolonged exposer. Green mattress company, Avocado, is on a mission to provide a safe and healthy sleep environment while promoting sustainability and social responsibility with their eco-conscious mattresses and bedding. Made from certified organic materials including wool, cotton, latex, and kapok fiber, all of their bedding products are natural and non-toxic, made in the U.S., and come GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions. Their Avocado Green Pillow offers a luxurious, all-natural night sleep, made from a combination of 100% GOLS organic latex ribbons and GOTS kapok fibers, and stuffed inside a high-thread count GOTS organic cotton pillowcase. Light, airy and naturally cool, each pillow provides a pristine level of comfort and support for a cozy, chemical-free night sleep. Avocado also offsets the emissions from their factory and product shipping annually via carbon offsets purchased from Carbonfund. And one percent of all revenues are donated to environmental nonprofits as part of 1% For The Planet.
