Spring Back Recycling is a non-profit that exists to break down mattresses and build up lives. Its mission is to provide sustainable employment and small business training for formerly incarcerated men and women. Launched in March of 2011 as a partnership between Belmont University’s Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team and Belmont Church’s Isaiah 58 ministry, Spring Back’s mission is to provide sustainable employment and small business training for formerly incarcerated men and women.
Additionally, Spring Back strives to protect the environment by offering retailers, institutions, and consumers an economical alternative to dumping used mattresses in landfills. Some of the springs from the mattresses are removed and given to Sweet Sleep where they are sold as home decor items. The proceeds are split between the two organizations, thus providing jobs for people here and beds for orphans around the world!
Sweet Sleep offers several different home decor items created by Spring Back Recycling for sale in their retail space in Brentwood. On Monday, February 13 and Tuesday February 14 we will have a special Valentines Open House. In addition to home decor we will also have:
- One of a kind handcrafted magazine jewelry from Uganda
- Handmade scarves made by FashionABLE
- Long and short sleeve Sweet Sleep t-shirts
- Stay-Dri Team Sweet Sleep shirts for runners
- Hats, blankets, Tervis Tumblers and more!
