The pillow is a great option for eco-conscious sleepers. The interior is padded with shredded latex that has been certified organic by the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), along with fibers from the kapok tree that are certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Kapok fibers are light and fluffy, making them comparable to duck or goose down. The pillow’s cover is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton.
The pillow offers adjustable loft. Owners simply add or remove the latex/kapok fill to increase or decrease the pillow’s thickness. Avocado sells additional fill in 1-pound and half-pound shipments for owners who need replenishment.
Like other pillows made from organic and/or natural materials, the Avocado Green Pillow is exceptionally durable and has a longer-than-average expected lifespan. The pillow is also very breathable, making it ideal for hot sleepers, and provides close conforming to alleviate pain in the head, neck, and shoulders.
Compared to other pillows with these materials, the Avocado Green has a fairly low price-point. Avocado also offers free shipping to all 50 states, along with a 100-night sleep trial and a one-year warranty.

The following table lists our ratings for the Avocado Green Pillow in terms of durability, shape retention, and other performance factors. These ratings are based on a combination of verified owner and customer reviews, and our own product research and testing.
The Avocado Green Pillow is made with organic fill and cover materials that are naturally durable, giving the pillow a fairly long expected lifespan. The materials also retain minimal body heat from sleepers, allowing the pillow to maintain a consistent and comfortable temperature.
Adjustable loft is another positive attribute of the Avocado Green Pillow. This is especially beneficial for sleepers whose thickness preferences vary from night to night. To adjust the loft, simply add or remove the fill. However, adjusting the loft will not change the firmness.
The pillow weighs between 3.4 and 5.2 pounds, making it somewhat heavy but still lighter than most single-piece latex pillows. Strong off-gassing may also occur when the pillow is new, but long-lasting smells should not be a major issue for owners.
What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to an Avocado Pillow?
Based on our customer feedback, the Avocado Green Pillow has received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different pillows. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a new pillow.
|Sleep Position||Less than 130 LBS||130 LBS - 230 LBS||Greater than 230 LBS|
As you can see, the Avocado Green Pillow earned the most favorable ratings from sleepers weighing 230 pounds or less. This is typical for a medium-soft pillow. Heavier sleepers who prefer this firmness setting may also find the Avocado Green Pillow comfortable, while those who like firmer surfaces may find the pillow too soft.
The ideal pillow thickness also varies by sleeper weight and position. The Avocado Green Pillow’s adjustable loft allows owners to customize the thickness to meet their individual needs.
