Mattress Disposal Plus, a leading junk removal company specializing in eco-friendly mattress disposal, and One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation, have entered a partnership to increase sustainability efforts.
The partnership with One Tree Planted allows Mattress Disposal Plus to donate one dollar to plant one tree for every completed order. This helps consumers get rid of mattresses in a new sustainable way.
Mattresses are a global environmental hazard. In the U.S. alone, an average of 18.2 million mattresses are thrown away, but only 56 facilities that can recycle mattresses exist. The development of “roll-down technology” has given rise to more than 175 mattress-in-a-box companies offering 100-day windows to receive full refunds. When a mattress is returned, it simply is thrown out. While some mattress providers arrange to donate them to care homes, hospitals, and other charities, many more still end up in landfills.
With this trend of mattress returns, the junk removal industry needs sustainable solutions to reduce the environmental impact. Reforestation is consistently identified by scientists as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis, and the partnership between One Tree Planted and Mattress Disposal Plus helps offset mattress waste by planting trees.
The partnership is designed to make it easy for customers to support global reforestation while also getting rid of a mattress. For every order placed with Mattress Disposal Plus, the company will give $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and volunteers where deforestation has occurred. To get involved, just book a pickup and your order will plant one tree.
