This post is sponsored by Leesa, a mattress company with the simple goal: “to help people sleep better”.
It’s not very often in the world of partnerships that you get to talk about something old, but when Leesa reached out to see if I wanted to write about the experience we’ve had with their mattress, I jumped at the opportunity. It’s been a little over a year and a half since we gave up our ten-year-old double mattress with the cavernous pillow top and swapped it for a sleek queen-sized Leesa mattress (more about that experience here). And I stand by my claim that upgrading our mattress has been the single biggest game changer in our tiny apartment. As I’d hoped, a year and a half later, we’re still enjoying every minute of sleep that we get on our Leesa mattress and I can honestly say that it feels as good now as it did when we first got it.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the company, Leesa sells their mattresses direct-to-consumer in boxes that arrive on your doorstep. They are 10” hybrid foam mattresses made with three foam layers: A two-inch top layer of Avena® foam is perforated to keep you cool and provide cushiony bounce while two inches of memory foam makes up the middle layer and relieves pressure. The mattress core is made from a six-inch dense foam for durability and structure. I can’t say that I have a princess-and-the-pea ability to discern all of those layers myself, but what I do know is that the mattress is very comfortable, quite affordable, and a huge improvement over what we had before.
And for folks who are interested in something new from Leesa, they just launched a new pillow. The pillow has the same signature look as the Leesa mattress and it’s made with cooling and responsive Avena® performance foam. If you prefer to try out either in person, Leesa has partnered with West Elm, so that their products are now available to try (and buy) in more than eighty West Elm stores nationwide.
Questions of comfort and performance aside, I’m so glad to be partnering with a company committed to doing good. As a certified B Corporation, Leesa is required to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. B-Corps are charged with using the “power of business to solve social and environmental problems.” Toward that end, for every mattress that Leesa sells, they donate one tree to the Arbor Foundation and for every ten mattresses that Leesa sells, they donate one mattress to charity. Last week, I accompanied Leesa to The Bowery Mission here in New York City, where they’ve donated more than 300 custom-made mattresses. Together with other volunteers, I sorted food donations, helped with lunch service, and climbed up on bunk beds to dress Leesa mattresses in West Elm organic sheets. I was awed by the work of the Bowery Mission and so grateful to see the impact of their partnership with Leesa up close.
