6 Best Vegan Mattresses For A Plant-Based Bed In 2023

The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.

We’ve researched and tested numerous vegan mattresses — these are our favorite brands made with organic and sustainable materials across a range of price points.

Where we catch our zzz’s is where we spend a third of our lives—so we recommend investing in the best of the best when it comes to mattresses. Most mattresses include petroleum-based foams, toxic flame retardants, pesticides, and other gases/chemicals that can be dangerous to our health, especially night after night. Instead, we can opt for vegan, all-natural mattresses that will keep us sleeping soundly and healthy—without harming people, planet, or animals.

Why consider a vegan mattress?

Vegan mattresses are a wonderful choice for their ethical and cruelty-free production. Traditional mattresses typically use animal by-products such as wool and silk, and opting to go vegan supports the humane treatment of animals by avoiding the use of these materials. Vegan mattresses can also be more eco-friendly and sustainable through the use of recycled materials and more natural alternatives like organic latex and plant-based foams. And for those with wool allergies, you’ll be pleased to know that vegan mattresses can avoid your triggers and are often completely hypoallergenic! 

We’ve reviewed dozens of the best organic mattress brands that offer a completely vegan mattress. None contain wool or any animal by-products, and they’re all made in the USA. Many of them are also GOTS and GOLS certified, ensuring that both organic and sustainable materials are used in the production of the mattress. We also love these brands for their excellent customer service, financing options, and sustainable materials.

PlushBeds Mattress Review | “We had never slept on a latex mattress, but we did a lot of research and decided on this one by PlushBeds. Specifically the Natural Bliss because it is wool-free (I am very allergic) and has organic cotton covering. Coming from 18 years sleeping on a memory foam mattress, we thought the latex might take some getting used to. However, from night one, we have been very satisfied! Somehow it manages to be mildly “springy,” form-fitting, and supportive, yet easy on shoulder and hip pressure points… Highly recommend!” ––Linda G. (See all reviews)

Brentwood Home Mattress Review | “First, while not imperative to performance, I have to say the Crystal Cove mattress and pillows are beautiful. They look and feel luxurious. I hated to cover them with sheets! As for performance, we are very pleased. Unpacking was easy and the bed expanded quickly. No odors. We are using the plush side for now but are happy with it so far…not too hard, not too soft. Perfect for an adjustable base.“ – Ginger F. (See all reviews)
