We believe that we should help others and we are responsible for future generations and the environment so we instituted our Give Back program at the beginning of 2019. 10% of our after-tax profits will be given to The Conservation Fund.
We understand that some of our progressive choices may be off-putting to some of our customers. Please know that's not our intent. We have great respect for those whose views may not align with ours. We do risk losing sales by wearing the values we choose on our sleeve. We are not a mission- or purpose-based business selling products or services to support a cause, nor are we green-washers.
Feel free to contact us with any questions about our program. We'd welcome the chance to have the conversation about our program.
As part of our 365 day in home trial, people may learn that a Spindle isn't right for them. Once the mattress is in a home for one night or ninety days, we consider it used and do not bring it back into our facility or resell it. Instead of throwing the mattress in a landfill, the owner is responsible for donating the Spindle to a charitable community service organization.
Spindle mattresses have been donated to charitable community service organization such as Goodwill, Wounded Warriors, the Salvation Army, safe-house shelters, refugee resettlement organizations, houses of worship, Habitat for Humanity, and many more.
We've even had customers donate to a 501(c)3 non-profit contemporary art center, Wunderkammer Company. They have an artist in residence program and host out of town artists in a small apartment in their 116 year old building in Fort Wayne, Indiana. While their purpose is not directly social service related, Spindle's mattresses helps them financially. They assist emerging artists at the beginning of their careers and do a lot of partnering with local social service non-profits, including a few who provide services that help combat homelessness in their community. Their mission is revitalizing communities through contemporary art and they do this at the grassroots level.
