Not only are organic beds mean healthier sleep, they’re also better for the environment — but how to choose the right one? During this Avocado Green vs PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress comparison piece, we will explore the key differences between the two popular organic mattresses. 

As well as being two of the best mattresses for the eco-conscious among us, both the Avocado Green Mattress and the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss bed offer outstanding comfort and support, utilizing the uniquely pressure-relieving properties of natural latex and cooling properties of organic wool and cotton. 

However, there are some key differences between the two, including price. A 20% off sale brings the price of a queen size Avocado Green Mattress down to $1,799 (from $1,999), while a queen size PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress is $1,699 (was $2,949) — which is an enormous saving of $1,250. Let’s take a closer look at both organic mattresses to help you choose between the two. 

What is the Avocado Green Mattress?

The Avocado Green Mattress is an award winning organic hybrid which is needle-tufted by hand from 100% natural and organic materials. It tops our best organic mattress buying guide, due to its combination of outstanding organic credentials and superb comfort and support. It's endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association, which means it's a great option for those with back pain, but stomach and heavier-weight sleepers will also glean benefits from this mattress.

During our Avocado Green Mattress review, we rated this bed as a 7 out of 10 for firmness, which means that side and lightweight sleepers may find it too firm to offer any meaningful support. Natural materials, such as Dunlop Latex and wool keeps temperatures naturally regulated, while the 1,400 coils add to the overall breathability.

In addition to its organic credentials, the Avocado Green Mattress boasts sturdy edge support, motion isolation, and feels cool to the touch. The benefits are great, too — you get a 365 night trial to see if this mattress suits your sleep, plus a 25 year warranty. 

What is the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress?

The Botanical Bliss is one of PlushBeds most highly rated latex models made from an array of organic and sustainable materials, such as Talalay and Dunlop latex and GOTS certified organic cotton and wool. As well as being a fiberglass free mattress, it’s also free of chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, carcinogenic adhesives and other toxins.

This is one of the most certified organic beds in America, but the Botanical Bliss doesn't make any sacrifices when it comes to comfort. There are two different firmness levels to choose from — medium and medium firm — as well as three different heights. The Botanical Bliss is chiropractor approved, which makes it an excellent choice for those with back or neck pain, and is most suited to side, back and stomach sleepers.

Like the Avocado, the GOTS certified wool aids overall temperature regulation, while the cotton cover is dust-mite, mold and mildew resistant, which is great news for those with allergies.

Avocado Green Mattress vs PlushBeds Botanical Bliss: Design

The Avocado Green Mattress is a hybrid, which means that it’s crafted from a combination of coils and foam. At the top you’ll find an organic cotton cover that affectively wicks away moisture and feels cool to the touch. Next up is a 2-inch Dunlop latex comfort layer that lies over the top of a zone support core. 

That Support is delivered by up to 1,459 individually encased steel coils, which adds to the overall breathability of the mattress, as well as offering ergonomic support in seven key areas. That means that the mattress will feel softer and firmer in different areas. A reinforced steel perimeter aids edge support — which, like the temperature regulation and motion isolation, is excellent.

In contrast, the PlushBed Botanical Bliss is made up entirely of six layers of latex foams, GOTS certified wool and cotton. At the top, a certified cotton cover keeps sleepers cool and provides a natural deterrent to dust mites, mold and mildew. This is then followed by an organic wool comfort layer, which also helps regulate temperatures. 

A natural Talalay latex comfort layer provides pressure relief, while a dense Dunlop latex base layer provides superior pressure relief, support and durability.

Avocado Green Mattress vs PlushBed Botanical Bliss: Comfort & Support

While you can upgrade to a Medium (which includes a Plush Top) or a Plush (which includes a Box Top), the Avocado Green Mattress comes as a firm as standard. During our review, we rated this mattress as a 7 out of 10 for firmness, which makes it suitable for predominantly back and stomach sleepers. Its ergonomic support system does an excellent job of providing pressure relief where it’s needed as well as keeping the spine in correct alignment, helping to alleviate back pain — which is why it comes recommended by the American Chiropractic Association. 

The Avocado Green has a maximum weight capacity of 700 lbs for two sleepers (most mattresses have a weight capacity of 500 lbs), which makes it an excellent choice for heavier weight sleepers who want an organic bed but not at the cost of adequate support.

Like many of the best mattresses, the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss comes in two different firmness settings; Medium and Medium Firm, which means that it is suitable for a wide range of sleep styles. It also comes in three different heights, 9", 10" and 12". While we haven't yet tested the Botanical Bliss, its Talalay latex layer works to provide blissful pressure relief across the hips, shoulders and knees, making it an excellent choice for side sleepers. 

Its dense Dunlop latex layer provides the bulk of the support here, helping to keep the spine from dipping out of alignment, which can aggravate and even cause back issues. Like the Avocado Green, this mattress comes chiropractor-approved.
