Omnichannel bedding brand Diamond Mattress gives new life to waste and encourages young minds to create new products.
Damond donates scrap materials from his Southern California factory to the Children’s Creativity Lab (CCL), a local non-profit organization whose mission is to promote creativity in children with science, technology, engineering, art and math. . CCL uses materials from the Diamond Mattress that would otherwise be thrown at teachers and parents to support their curriculum and construction sites.
“One of our core values is to leave a positive legacy, and we can’t think of a better way to do this to inspire future generations of innovators and creators,” said Brianna Pennington, Deputy Demand Mattress. Director.
Diamond materials include fabric, yarn and thread spools, plastic and cardboard houses, and zippers. Items are arranged and cleaned by Diamond Mattress staff to ensure they are free of contaminants that are then included in the steam-based kits by children throughout Orange County.
The funding idea was introduced by Diamond CFO Brian Arnold who is a CCL board member and volunteer.
“Changing and helping with scrap materials not only helps children – it also helps the environment to keep these materials from filling the ground,” Arnold said.
The Diamond Mattress will be named CCL 10 material partner of the year 2022.of the Anniversary celebrations on May 20th. Tracy Hill, CCL’s executive director, estimates that her depot fills up more than 3 tons of material each year for the recycling program, and her partnership with Diamond deepens her community support capacity.
