    Has anyone tried an Avocado mattress?

    Hey all, from the achy-breaky back and neck department... It's time I got a new mattress for my bed. Has anyone tried the newer Avocado Green mattress? I love that they're from organic materials, and pretty darn non-toxic* to boot. Unfortunately, there are no stores within a 4-hour drive of me...
