190: This Mattress Company Lets You Give Back While You Sleep

Today on Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Joe talk to David Wolfe, Co-Founder and CEO of Leesa Sleep, a certified B-Corp that donates one mattress to a shelter for every 10 it sells. To date, they've donated 9,000 mattresses and are proudly pioneering a way for people to give back while they sleep!

On the show, Megan, David and Joe discuss:

  • How Leesa got started by a serial entrepreneur with a generous spirit.
  • How Leesa approaches the intersection of profit and purpose. Which comes first?
  • How Leesa has made mattresses "cool," which may explain why so many Millennials are consumers and employees!
  • How Leesa tracks the social impact of the mattresses it donates. One way is through an "Impact Tour" of shelters they've helped.
  • How Leesa chooses the shelters it donates to.
  • How Leesa balances its donation with new and returned mattresses. More than half of their donations are new mattresses.
  • The real problem of homelessness: no place to sleep. Watch This!
