How It’s Made:
Unfortunately, sustainability and smart features don’t (yet) go hand-in-hand when it comes to mattresses. Once you start shopping for organic materials and eco-friendly manufacturing practices, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a mattress with built-in sensors and foot warming capabilities. However, the Brentwood Hybrid Latex Mattress is one of the best nontoxic mattresses on the market, so let’s just call it “eco-smart.”
The brand (which is owned by Avocado) is making strides to become carbon negative, with efforts like tree plantings to offset emissions—and all mattresses are made in the United States. This mattress in particular has 100% carbon offset, and is made with GOLS organic latex and GOTS organic certified wool, and even includes a base layer made from recycled denim, for extra breathability. Other materials used are natural hemp, and recycled water bottles.
The mattress has a medium firmness, offers full-body support, and limits motion transfer, thanks to the zig-zag design of its natural Dunlop latex core.
It will ship in a box to your home via FedEx, or (for an additional fee) you can schedule delivery (within a four hour window). With this add-on, the brand will send a team to set up your new mattress and remove your old one, along with the foundation, and/or box spring (depending on the brand and location).
What Customers Say:
With 57 reviews on the brand’s website, the feedback for this mattress is nearly all positive. One person writes, “Look no further for your next mattress!Look no further for your next mattress! Best mattress out there! This is the third one we bought. When guests sleep on it they ask about it.” Another says, “Fantastic mattress! We found Brentwood Home when we were looking for a comfortable, sustainable, and affordable mattress. It has exceeded all our expectations. I feel great knowing that it was made with materials I can trust.”
A few people do note that they wish it was a bit firmer.
