Avocado Mattress, an organic and sustainable bedding company, is once again inspiring us with their latest response to the global health pandemic. In response to the shortage of face masks for medical professionals, the company is now utilizing a large part of its cut and sew facility in Los Angeles for the production of face masks.
Last month, Darling partnered with Avocado Mattress for the perfect, personal getaway. The company’s products are handcrafted with certified organic materials, which makes them better for your health and the planet! This is a brand whose products we can feel good about laying our heads on at night and who we can be proud to support with their recent response to the outbreak of COVID-19.
For $30, you can get a family pack of eight masks (with a limit of three family-packs per household). The masks are being sold at cost, meaning that Avocado Mattress is not making a profit. These masks are for the common good. They feature two tie-straps and are GOTS® organic certified Face Masks made with two layers of organic cotton canvas. They do not use any elastic or plastic.

While they are not particulate filtering N95 medical masks, they will provide protection against the transmission of Covid-19. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, this type of face mask can help with prevention when N95’s are not available. Sine the virus is transmitted through respiratory droplets, these face masks are great alternative for providing a protective barrier.
In addition to face masks, Avocado Mattress is offering additional crisis-response supplies for hospitals and quarantine centers. The list of products includes temporary/disposable mattresses for shelters and temporary housing needs; reusable/washable sheets; waterproof wedge pillows, toppers and disposable pillows; and disposable protective garb such as boots and smocks.
Avocado is stepping up in effort to support medical, government, state and local needs with bulk supplies of organic certified face masks, bedding needs and mattresses for hospitals, shelters and quarantining purposes. These supplies are desperately needed as medical professionals face a shortage of supplies.
