SavvySleeper’s Eco-Conscious Scholarship


Our Scholarship

SavvySleeper is dedicated to helping consumers choose high-quality products that stand the test of time. Unfortunately, many low-quality products are sold which results in an incredible amount of waste and negatively impacts our carbon footprints. According to Greening Forward, “Americans dispose of 15 to 20 million mattresses each year. These discarded mattresses can take up 132,000 miles of landfill space.”

We’ve found that people are not often aware of how environmentally detrimental their buying choices can be and we’re excited to start a conversation with young creative minds that can really dig into this problem.

Are you a student currently enrolled at a U.S. institution? Are you known for being able to think outside of the box? Do you think you could explore issues surrounding eco-conscious buying and propose ways of recycling old mattresses in an essay? If so, please feel free to apply to our scholarship!
