Join Us in Celebrating Earth Day by Reducing Mattress Waste

Earth DayOn April 22, 2015, people from all across the world will come together to observe Earth Day, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. From attending community events to promoting local sustainability efforts to supporting environmental education through legislation, more than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day activities each year.

However, there are also simple ways that you can get involved and help make an impact. You can help reduce waste by choosing to rent a furniture package or buy a gently used bed from CORT. This is a great option for those looking for an affordable and environmentally-friendly option when it comes to mattress shopping.

Here are some surprising facts you might not know:

  • – 40 million mattresses are thrown away every year in the U.S.
  • – Roughly 85% of a mattress can be recycled, including the wood, mattress foam and steel.

At CORT, every mattress undergoes a thorough cleaning and adheres to the strict quality standards of our Personal Service Guarantee before being sold to a CORT Clearance Center or discounted to a family in need.
