Avocado is an organic and non-toxic hybrid mattress with an optional pillow top. The company even sells a fully vegan mattress, which eliminates the wool.

Here’s a brief outline of the points we’ll cover in this comparison:

  • Price — My Green Mattress is more affordable than Avocado.
  • Feel / Firmness — Although they have pretty similar constructions, Natural Escape from My Green Mattress has a slightly different feel and firmness level than Avocado.
  • Options — Avocado has an optional pillow top, as well as a vegan option. My Green Mattress’s Natural Escape comes as is.

Avocado vs My Green Mattress: Quick Synopsis

My Green Mattress and Avocado are two of many online mattress companies that advertise under an eco-focused marketing scheme. They both produce organic mattresses that incorporate organic materials and cater to eco-conscious shoppers. They actually have pretty similar constructions, as well, so it’s no surprise that they end up going head-to-head in the debate of which mattress to get.

  • Eco-conscious shoppers
  • All body types
  • Back, stomach, and combo sleepers (and heavy side sleepers)
  • Folks who like a latex foam feel
  • Those who like a somewhat bouncy bed

My Green Mattress Is More Affordable

When it’s time to make a big purchase, cost is a major consideration. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you like an option if it isn’t within your budget. The Natural Escape model from My Green Mattress is going to be the more affordable option.

A queen size Natural Escape mattress and an Avocado mattress are around $1,300 and $1,400, respectively. That’s before applying any discounts. Just based on MSRP, Natural Escape is about $100 less than Avocado. You can check current pricing on MyGreenMattress.com.

It’s a hefty mattress, but it’s still more affordable than Avocado

Neither of these are budget mattresses, so you’ll have to be willing to make and investment regardless of which mattress you buy. However, we do keep tabs on deals and promotions, so be sure to check on our Mattress Deals page. We’ll also provide any discount codes we have in the green box on the right of this page.

For the most part, even with discounts, we see the pricing difference being about the same—Natural Escape is between $100 and $300 less than Avocado in most cases.

Natural Escape: Construction, Materials & Feel

Natural Escape is made with a collection of natural and organic materials. In the construction of their Natural Escape model, My Green Mattress uses the following materials, from bottom to top: steel pocketed coils, natural latex foam, natural wool, and organic cotton.

The overall feel of the bed is a bit bouncy and cushiony. The coil system provides good support and some of that more traditional innerspring feel, while the latex foam and wool comfort layers add nice pressure relief and cushion to the surface of the bed.

Natural Escape Is Slightly Softer Overall

Although we say that both My Green Mattress and Avocado are viable options for all body types, between the two, we’d say that petite folks will likely prefer My Green Mattress.

It isn’t quite as firm as Avocado, which lands between a medium-firm and a firm on our scale, so lighter-weight sleepers will be able to enjoy the comfort layers on My Green Mattress more than on the Avocado mattress.

Natural Escape is a hair softer than Avocado

For small folks, mattresses can often feel a bit firmer than advertised because a lighter body means you don’t sink into the comfort layers as much as the average person.

However, we’d still say these two beds are fairly similar in terms of all-around accommodation. Both are best-suited for back sleepers and stomach sleepers, and not bad for combo sleepers. They will work for certain side sleepers, though there are other options you might consider first if you want a truly soft mattress.

Construction, Materials & More

As we mentioned earlier, Avocado’s construction is fairly similar to Natural Escape’s. They’re both latex foam hybrid mattresses, so similar interiors doesn’t come as a surprise.

From bottom to top, Avocado uses recycled steel pocketed coils, 100% GOLS organic certified latex foam, and then a GOTS organic certified cotton cover. Additional materials, like 100% GOTS organic certified wool and hydrated silica are also incorporated in the bed.

What’s inside the Avocado mattress

While Avocado’s list of standard materials is sustainable and organic, the wool can be an issue for some folks (lifestyle vegans, those with very sensitive wool allergies). With this in mind, Avocado offers a fully vegan version of their mattress that replaces the wool with additional organic cotton and is vegan certified. You can read more about the Vegan option on Avocado’s website.

Avocado Optional Pillow Top

The exact construction of Avocado does vary depending on whether or not you add-on the optional pillow top. With the pillow top, you get two more inches of latex foam, making the mattress a total 13” thick.

Sans pillow top, we rate Avocado as a true firm on our scale. With the pillow top, we rate it as a medium-firm, which makes it more accommodating for a wider range of sleepers.

The pillow top will also change the feel of the bed. Without the pillow top, it’s akin to a firm innerspring bed with a foam topper. With the pillow top, it’s more like an innerspring bed with a thick, cushiony, more plush topper.

Temperature Regulation

We regard both of these beds as temperature neutral, meaning that neither will make you heat up and neither will actively cool you down. Because of their coils and 100% GOLS organic certified latex foam, they get good airflow through the mattress.

You definitely lay more on top of the Avocado mattress

If we really had to point to one as the cooler-sleeping bed, we’d say Avocado (barely). Because it is the firmer of the two, you’ll end up sleeping more on top of the surface rather than nestling down into it. Generally, the more on top of the bed you are, the cooler you sleep since there’s less material in contact with your body to cause friction and trap heat.


Both My Green Mattress and Avocado make quality, comfortable, eco-friendly mattresses, and they have quite a bit of crossover. Ultimately, we’d suggest that you go with the Natural Escape from My Green Mattress if you’re working with a tighter budget or if you have a lightweight body type.

Alternately, we’d suggest that you go with the Avocado mattress if you want a pillow top option, you want an entirely vegan bed, or you’re an especially hot sleeper and every extra bit of coolness counts.
