Mattress Companies That Give Back

Sleep better in more ways than one with these mattress brands that donate to charity and support great causes.

By Alesandra Woolley

If you’re like us, knowing that your purchase is also supporting a good cause just makes you feel good. Maybe you have an extra soft spot for helping out the less fortunate or contributing to a respectable charity. And if you’re in the market for a new mattress, you can rest easy in more ways than one knowing that you’re buying from a company that’s also doing good in the world.

Mattress Companies that Give Back

Take a look at these seven mattress brands that are giving back to charities, helping out in the community, and supporting the less fortunate as part of their mission. (Oh, and their beds are pretty great too.)

1. Avocado

The Avocado Green mattress

Avocado has committed to donate 1% of all sales to select nonprofit organizations to support issues they care deeply about, like climate change, healthy food systems, land management, water resources, pollution and wildlife diversity. You can read more about the non-profit organizations they support to help our planet and the people living on it here.

The mattress itself is also GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment, which means they meet some of the world’s most rigorous, third-party emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants.


2. Bear

The Bear mattress is designed to help promote muscle recovery, which is especially relevant for athletes or people who lead active lifestyles. And their charitable mission fits the glove for their promotion of health and activity. Bear donates 1% of every sale to Good Sports, an organization that helps children all over the country have access to an active, healthy lifestyle through sports and physical activity.

With the help of Bear, Good Sports has helped children stay active by:

  • Donating over $20 million in sports equipment to over 3,2000 organizations and $4.1 million of new apparel and footwear
  • Sending over 1,000 individual donations to schools and other community organizations
  • Providing 4 million children with new equipment and a chance to stay active
  • Donating to every single state in the US

3. Layla

Layla has partnered with the Episcopal Community Services homeless shelter in San Francisco to provide people in need a bed to sleep on. There are currently over 7,500 homeless people in San Francisco and Layla’s efforts are helping to provide comfort, care and a safe place to sleep for those in need.


4. Leesa

Leesa is a mattress company that pours its heart and soul into bettering the community, the environment, and helping those less-fortunate get a great night’s sleep.

Before we get into the specifics, it’s worth noting that Leesa is a Certified B Corp, meaning they “meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.”

There are three signature programs that are part of Leesa’s social impact mission:

One-Ten

One-Earth

Leesa Dream Gallery

The Leesa Dream Gallery is mattress store crossed with an art gallery located in New York City. You can check out the Leesa mattress for yourself (without the company of pushy salespeople) and browse through unique pieces of art created by talented, but undiscovered artists.

These artists are homeless, formerly homeless and disabled men and women who share their dreams through art. By purchasing their artwork, you can help provide them the funding needed to get back on their feet.

Can’t make it to NYC? You can still support the cause by purchasing a Leesa mattress with a limited edition ArtLifting cover. A portion of the proceeds go to ArtLifting, an organization that connects socially conscious companies with talented artists impacted by homelessness or disabilities.

Other Highlights

  • In addition to mattress donations, Leesa donates a portion of their profits from sheet sales to 42nd Street, a charity that supports the mental and emotional well-being of young people.
  • Leesa offers discounted rates on all products for military, first-responders, teachers and students year round.

5. Loom & Leaf by Saatva

Each year, the Saatva organization donates over 250 mattresses to organizations like hospitals, homeless shelters, veteran groups and other non-profit organizations. You can learn more about the organizations Saatva partners with here.


6. Nolah

For every mattress sold, Nolah adopts one wildlife animal in an effort to preserve the planet’s wildlife. Before you complete the checkout process, you can choose which animal you would like to be adopted from a selection of 20 endangered animals. You’ll receive an official adoption certificate for your chosen animal, sent by Nolah’s partners, Defenders of Wildlife.

More than 500 animal species are already thought to have gone extinct due to human involvement in the US alone. This is an issue that Nolah is passionate about, which is why they donate 7% of their profits to protecting the planet and its wildlife.


7. Solay

Solay is providing beds for children in need through their partnership with Beds for Kids

Solay is a new mattress company that’s kicking off with a bang. Bringing the TOMS Shoes one-for-one model to the mattress world, Solay has partnered with Charlotte, NC-based non-profit, Beds for Kids, to provide one bed and one box spring to a child in need for every mattress sold.

Beds for Kids empowers families with children by delivering these beds and essential furniture items to powerfully supplement the family’s resources as they rise out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.

Some of the children and families receiving these beds don’t have a bed to sleep in or a place to sleep in general. Beds for Kids hopes to extend their efforts to different regions across the country with the help of their partnership with Solay.

“We are excited to have Solay joining with us to fight the fight to make sure that every child has a bed to sleep on,” said Daniel Fogarty, Executive Director at Beds for Kids. “Every night there are kids going to sleep on the floor without a bed to call their own. With this partnership, we are able to change that for more children.”

Beds for Kids has provided over 10,000 individuals with new beds.

  1. I am reaching out because my son and I are in need of full size beds. We have fought through many struggles to get out of being homeless and finally getting into a rental house. I had put our belongings in storage. My mattress and box spring are over 24 years old and worn out, his is over 10 years old, it’s a queen size & two big to get into his bedroom. They were stored in a unit that was susceptible not only to temperatures but, bugs & critters. We could really use new beds but, coming out of homelessness, jobs loss, now in a low paying job, it’s going to take all I have to try to keep us in this rental so, there’s no extra money for purchasing beds. I currently have a untreated back injury from a previous job & at 49 years old, camping out in sleeping bags, on a hardwood floor has not been the best thing for my body.
  2. Hi me and my partner live in a rooming house are in dyre need of a new Orthopedic queen size mattress and we cant afford one.

We both lost our jobs due to covid and really need help with a mattress if anyone can help us and donate one it would be a blessing! Please of someone sees this email me please angelinabless@gmail.com God bless you all and thanks for reading this.

It’s unbelievable that I am asking for help , something I would never do , but due to my circumstances I am reaching out in hopes that someone out there can help . I hope this Website Page is not a hoax ~ because I am praying for a miracle that someone can help me ! The mattress I am on now is 15 yrs old & most likely contributing to some of the Failed Back surgery pain I already have. Thanks for taking the time in reviewing this message ! Karen
