Our Sustainability Pledge

Our Sustainability Pledge

It was our goal from day one to make a mattress that wasn’t just good for you, but also good for the environment. That’s why we continue to use natural latex, natural cotton and organic wool while designing our products to be non-toxic and eco-friendly. We didn’t want to stop there. While it wasn’t easy to get the top certifications in environmental and sustainability measures, we’ve made sure that our premium materials always hit those marks. Still, we wanted to do something more.

Awara Partners with Trees for the Future

In this spirit, we’re so proud to announce that we’ve partnered with Trees for the Future. For every Awara purchase, we will donate to a portion to Trees for the Future, a nonprofit to help renew and restore the environment and to improve the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands. s.

How it Works

Trees for the Future provides a simple scalable approach to sustainability in places that need it by planting specific types of fast-growing trees, fruit trees, and food crops over a four-year period. This provides families in the area with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, and ultimately can lead to a 400% increase to their income in four years. It’s a human-centric approach to an environmental problem that ensures both sides of the equation are taken care of.

Planting a Seed for the Future

Trees for the Future gives farmers in areas that often experience chronic famine and extreme poverty a chance to break that cycle of poverty and eradicate hunger. It also provides farmers with coaching and in-person site visits so that they can learn the tools it will take to renew the environment and sustain these practices to help eradicate hunger and keep the planet safe forever.

Where They Work

TREES has helped over 4,000 families across six countries in Sub Saharan Africa. The goal is to expand even further to Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, Guinea, and Tanzania -- places where that impact will be felt the most.

Trees For The Future

In the early 1970’s, Dave and Grace Deppner served as volunteers in the Philippines, where they witnessed the human tragedy brought on by illegal logging and unsustainable land management systems. Working with community leaders in nearby villages, the Deppners found a way to offer hope. They revitalized lands by providing farmers with tree seeds, technical training and on-site planning assistance.

After returning to the U.S. from their overseas assignments they continued what they had started, communicating by mail with the project leaders and providing seeds, information and training materials. On August 14, 1989, Trees for the Future was incorporated as a public charity. Since then Trees has planted over 115 million trees in dozens of countries and revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of soil while changing people’s lives forever.
