The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
We spend nearly a third of our lives resting and recharging, so isn’t it essential that we get the good night’s sleep we deserve? Most mattresses include chemicals, flame retardants, and other materials we can’t even begin to pronounce—but these all-natural latex mattresses will give you the refreshing rest you need, without any of the potentially harmful side effects.
If you’re new to natural latex, here’s the lowdown: natural latex is made from the sap of a rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis), which makes it resistant to dust mites, mildew, and mold. Plus, it’s naturally hypoallergenic and doesn’t have any off-gassing, which is key for those who are sensitive to smells. And it’s worth the investment: while innerspring mattresses typically last less than ten years, natural latex mattresses can support our sleep—and our bodies—for up to 30 years. If you’re still not sold on the price point, you can watch Avocado’s process for harvesting latex and manufacturing mattresses (it’s fascinating!).
By manufacturing these mattresses in the USA, these businesses reduce their environmental footprint and keep costs affordable by cutting out the middle person. Some even give back to their communities, from supporting clean energy organizations to awarding scholarships. So whether you’re looking to do good for your health, the community, or the planet, these natural latex mattress brands have got you covered.

Say bye, bye to chemicals—Birch Mattress sources its materials from nature, including sustainably-sheared wool, zero polyurethane-based foams, and—our favorite—natural latex for optimal support and breathability. Using 100 percent natural Talalay latex tapped from the Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree (commonly grown in tropical regions, such as Southeast Asia), Birch closely monitors its plantations to ensure sustainable practices and consistent production. Moreover, the NYC-based company holds OEKO-TEX, ECO-Institute, and Rainforest Alliance certifications, and plants a tree for every mattress sold. Birch is also Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certified—one of the most challenging certifications to achieve in the organic textile industry. Pair this mattress with a plush Birch pillow (also made from sustainable wool and natural latex) for the coziest and most conscious night of sleep.

Avocado Mattress Review | “Recently I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and arthritis in my neck. I’m a stomach sleeper, and to not make things worse, I needed to learn to sleep on my side. Well, my old mattress caused me all kinds of aches and pains… I wanted the most non-toxic bed I could get for my money ($1400-$1600). I was skeptical of purchasing a bed over the internet, but all my research kept leading me to the Avocado. And, I have to say from the first night I slept in this bed I’ve had some of the best night’s sleep I’ve had in years! I can’t recommend it enough!” — Heather L.

PlushBeds Mattress Review | “The biggest reason for buying this bed was the natural materials. I am completely sensitive to smells and synthetic materials. The Botanical Bliss bed arrived quickly and there was absolutely no smell when we unpacked it. I’ve slept on it a couple of nights and love it. Supportive and comfortable, with enough ‘give’ that you don’t have any stiffness or sore spots in your body in the morning. Love this mattress!” — Bill & Catherine S.

Remember that plastic water bottle you threw out? How about those old jeans? Well, they may have just found a second life in Brentwood Home’s new hybrid latex mattress. The LA-based brand has added another natural bed to its already loved collection, and it’s being made with some of the most natural, organic, and eco-friendly materials around, including denim scraps and once ocean-bound plastic. Moreover, this mattress has a patent-pending zoned latex, which is 100% natural and sourced from trees. The waves in the foam reduce motion transfer and offer targeted support while also relieving pressure. And the mattress has an eco-friendly flax pad, too, one made with flax seed fiber—a natural, renewable resource that is notoriously hardy and durable.
What we love most about Brentwood Home’s new mattress, though, is the affordable price point (it costs less than comparable brands) and comes with a 25-year warranty. It’s good for the planet, too: With every mattress purchased, the company plants three trees.
Brentwood Home Mattress Review | “First night. Already so happy with this. Had an 8 year old temperpedic, that must have cost $2,500+. The quality you get here far exceeds that mattress, even when new.” – David R.
