Gardner’s Mattress & More Positively Impacts the Environment




Since opening Gardner’s Mattress & More in 2011, co-owners Ben McClure and Jeff Giagnocavo have been recycling mattresses. Every two weeks, an entire tractor trailer load of old mattresses is saved from going to the land fill.

“Commitment to our environment goes beyond mattresses,” explains McClure. “We don’t just sell natural and organic mattresses, which are beneficial to both your personal health and our environment, but we have also recently taken additional steps to impact our community and local environment in a more positive way.”

In May, they invested in a new delivery truck that doubled their fuel economy while making deliveries easier for their delivery team. In September, they will install LED lighting in their main showroom (7,000 square feet) which will reduce their electricity usage by 70 percent.
