OUR CHARITABLE EFFORTS
As a business, we support charitable, philanthropic and environmental programs because we firmly believe that even the smallest acts of goodness and kindness can have an real and lasting impact. Although we are not a large company, we hope to scale our modest acts of charitable and philanthropic work as our business grows and our network of engaged customers and like-minded followers expands. Because this initiative has just started, our list is short, but growing …
If “water is life” then, as Norman Maclean eloquently said, “a river runs through it.” It is in this spirit that we have selected American Rivers as our featured advocacy effort for July. American Rivers combines national advocacy with field work in key river basins to help protect and restore our nation’s rivers — essential for fish, wildlife, outdoor activities and human health.
Now, more than ever, the mission of The Nature Conservancy is extremely relevant: to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. For every Avocado Green Mattress sold in June, we will proudly be making donations to The Nature Conservancy to support their urgent mission.
Fleet Farming strives to reduce the environmental impact of food production through a pedal-powered, hyperlocal urban farming model that creates a culture of health and vibrant ecosystems by: teaching an intergenerational fleet of volunteers how to grow their own food, activating and re-engaging the community through biweekly Swarm Rides, and creating a breathe free and biodiverse environment through emissions-free, organic farming.
The world stands on the brink of an unprecedented 4 famines. Millions of families are at risk of starvation in South Sudan, Nigeria, Yemen, and Somalia. They urgently need food, sanitation, and clean water. We’re making donations for every mattress sold to Oxfam to help those in urgent need.
TEAM SUPER MAEVE
“Team Super Maeve” was raising funds for Make-a-Wish. Make-a-Wish granted Maeve’s wish to go to Disney World in 2014 as she battled and eventually beat cancer! So, to support our friends’ daughter, and everyone else needing joy and strength, we made a donation from every mattress sold to Team Super Maeve in support of Make-a-Wish!
INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION
FEBRUARY – MARCH 2017
To help “rescue thousands, protect millions, and prove that justice for the poor is possible,” we were proud to make a donation to the International Justice Mission, using the proceeds from our product sales.
