7 Verified Vegan Mattresses For Plush, Plant-Based Comfort

Shelby Loeppky

While counting sheep may help you get to sleep, your mattress doesn’t have to include them. 

Vegan mattress brands are sourcing organic materials that hit the snooze button on chemical flame retardants and animal byproducts.

Conventional mattresses were mostly made using an innerspring core, fiber fill (which may or may not obtain animal ingredients), and topped with toxic flame retardants.

Even their comfort layer doesn’t do much in the way of easing our minds of the chemicals we’re breathing in each night (which totals about 26 years of our entire life!).

The best plant-based mattresses cuddle up to natural and organic materials that haven’t been treated with these chemicals—such as organic cotton and organic latex—to produce luxury sleep, no sheep necessary.

Everything we recommend to you on Sustainable Jungle is independently researched and we ask all brands to confirm their claims. To avoid waste, we test products on an as needed basis.

The Best Plant-Based Mattress Brands To Catch Conscious Zs

We love a brand that continues to grow and adapt. Naturepedic provides the same first-stitch-to-finish quality on each mattress, whether it’s their regular sustainable mattresses or vegan options. 

TFS Natural Home recognizes safe sleep means snoozing aligned with your morals. Their line of vegan mattresses enables the buyer to select between a list of mix-matched sustainable, eco-friendly materials for the core of their mattress without compromising on their core values. 

It’s important to note that while these sleep mattress manufacturers offer vegan options, most have non-vegan options, too, and they’ve made our many sleepy-time lists because their ethical practices exceed our eco-conscious standards.

To learn more about these standards, snooze your way to the bottom of the article.

About Avocado

Price Range: $1,399–$3,199

Avocado took matters of eco-friendly sleep into their own hands when they began crafting mattresses years ago, after finding the sustainable sleep market relatively slim.

Handmade in LA, their Best Hybrid Vegan Mattress comes in Standard, for a medium firm snooze (ideal for back and stomach sleepers) or select Pillowtop for gentle firm.

Avocado also allows you to top your plant-based memory foam mattress with organic cotton protectors, toppers, pillowcases, and more—not to mention yourself with organic cotton pajamas.

While their standard Avocado Green Mattress isn’t vegan, you can rest assured their vegan mattress choice is made with the same care and quality as the remaining Avocado line.

Don’t just take our word for it; Avocado vegan mattress reviews rave about its plush and ergonomic feel, whether you’re a side sleeper or whatever!

Avocado’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices

All Vegan Certified and PETA-approved.

Even without the use of naturally fire retardant wool, Avocado’s vegan latex mattress holds the MADE SAFE certification by infusing natural graphite as a non-toxic fire barrier to protect your mattress.

Supply chain & labor practices:

This Avocado vegan mattress is made in LA, under ILO-compliant labor protections that are checked by the brand’s Certified B Corp status.

Not only is their vegan latex mattress American made, but it’s made using sustainably-sourced materials from their co-owned farms in India and Guatemala.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

This member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council ensures each of their products are made using clean energy. So much so, in fact, they hold the Climate Neutral certification.

About Nest Bedding

Price Range: $849–$1499

This next vegan mattress manufacturer has cracked the code when it comes to crafting vegan beds.

Nest’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


The Quail Plush memory foam mattress isn’t 100% natural, but it is 100% vegan and non-toxic.

Instead of latex foam, it features Energex Temperature Responsive Foam and support base foam, both of which are CertiPUR-US® certified and allowed time to air out in the factory, decreasing the chance of off-gassing.

Whether we’re talking about their mattresses oreco-friendly pillows, all products bear non-toxic OEKO-TEX certification.

The breathable thermic phase cooling cover releases the heat into a mattress that doesn’t use conventional glues but an air flow layer to disperse heat better. 

To replace the fire-resistant quality wool would provide, they use non-chemical hydrogenated silica.

Supply chain & labor practices:

While the ethical mattresses are constructed in an annually-audited factory in Arizona, Nest Bedding collects their materials globally from suppliers that uphold high working standards.

Other products, like their organic comforters, are made in a SMETA audited Chinese factory.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Nest opts for certified organic cotton bags to ship their bedding in to reduce the amount of plastic in their delivery chain. 

The FSC-certified bamboo used in their sheets is made using a water recycling process and each mattress is eligible for their Lifetime Renewal Exchange (LRE) to encourage proper mattress recycling.

Community & charitable giving:

Nest Bedding donated beds and pillows to the San Francisco SafeHouse in 2016.

Why Choose A Vegan Mattress?

If you’re reading this article, there’s a good chance you’re vegan—but even if you’re not, making your bed vegan and your sleep cycle animal-free isn’t a baaaa-d idea. 

So are mattresses vegan? And if not, why vegan mattresses? 

Well the why is obvious—we really don’t need to be snoozing on violations of animal rights—but the what is sometimes less obvious, which can make shipping for a plant-based mattress tricky.

Wool and down are the obvious animal byproducts used in mattresses, usually in pillow top layers and natural fiber filling. White wool is advantageous for its fire retardant qualities, the wool may not be sourced from ethical sources.

Beyond that, conventional mattresses may also include sneaky animal-derived ingredients in the form of silk coverings, adhesives, and gel layers (which can be made of animal gelatin).

So are memory foam mattresses vegan?

Possibly not. While memory foam itself is usually made of polyurethane (a vegan petroleum product), they may be adhered using animal-based glues and gel laters.

That’s why we seek latex instead. Can latex be vegan?


Vegan latex mattresses are typically derived from the rubber tree and contain no animal products in its makeup. 

Be wary of hybrid mattresses, however, as the various layers must still be held together. Look for brands who opt to stitch, sew or pin these layers as opposed to using glues.

How We Chose The Best Vegan Mattresses

Each brand in this list has been selected not for one reason or another but for the combination of eco-friendly materials, green business practices, and specifically certified vegan stamps of approval (with a charity on top!). 

These are based on our sustainable fashion criteria, with a bit of a bedroom bent.


When choosing a mattress, or vegan mattress topper, you’ll see a list of latex foam, reminiscent of memory foam mattresses, but not all memory foams are made alike. 

Instead of unhealthy polyurethane foam doused in fire retardants, toxic adhesives and chemicals prone to off gassing, a vegan latex mattress uses 100% natural latex rubber (which is harmlessly tapped from trees much like maple syrup!).

If they aren’t certified natural latex in their entirety, we want to ensure they’re non-toxic and non-off gassing, so instead of counting sheep, we count sustainability certifications to put our weary minds at ease.

For the outer covering, organic cotton is best.

Supply chain & labor practices:

Local, hands-on supply chains usually aid in upholding fair work conditions, safe employment opportunities, and a greater standard of care.

If materials must be sourced farther from the backyard, we choose companies that play a vital and involved role in their sourcing farms and plantations.

Carbon commitments & green business practices:

The fewer carbon transport emissions, or indoor pollutants, the better, hence why we look for smaller supply chains, carbon offsetting efforts, resource reduction plans, and any other ways brands are working to reduce their carbon footprint.

Community & charitable giving:

1% for the Planet members donate 1% of their proceeds to climate-friendly initiatives around the globe, further bettering our planet and providing vegan mattress options.

Beyond that, many of these brands donate to local charities and social enterprises as well.

Final Thoughts On Plant-Based Mattresses

Whether you’re dreaming of a latex mattress with a bounce-back recovery, a memory foam mattress sink-in-and-snooze feel, or a hybrid mattress, there’s one on this list for you.

Or, if a full plant-based mattress isn’t in your budget yet, start with a vegan, organic mattress topper to tide you over.

Sleep takes time (a lot of it), so choosing where to sleep and on which material shouldn’t.

With safe materials made in safe environments, long before they wind up on your bed frame, you’ll be counting (figurative) sheep in no time.

Send sweet dreams and this eco-friendly sleep list full of the best vegan mattresses to the friends of your dreams!
