A proposed class action that alleged Avocado Mattress had falsely advertised its latex mattresses, pillows and mattress toppers as free of synthetic and nontoxic chemicals has been dismissed.
“We are pleased to report that the proposed class-action lawsuit against Avocado has been dismissed,” the company said in a statement to Bedding News Now. “As is common in these legal matters, we cannot discuss further details, but we are glad to put this issue behind us.”
The lawsuit alleged several false claims against the company about creating products containing synthetic and/or harmful chemicals.
In fact, Avocado Green Brands, in addition to using natural materials in its products, is involved with several green initiatives, including releasing an annual sustainability and impact report to exemplify its efforts. In addition, the company is Climate Neutral Certified, which means it has committed to reduction targets and specific action plans to reduce operational and value chain emissions within the next 12-24 months.
