Organic Pillows Settle Into New Home at the Fisher House

by Eoin Hudson July 02, 2014

 

A few weeks ago for Memorial Day, we decided to try something different than the standard sale. For every person who came into our Seattle showroom, we donated one of our all-organic Shredded Latex Pillows to the Fisher House - an organization that provides accommodations for families of veterans being treated for injuries. As a company that makes organic mattresses and bedding, this seemed like the natural way for us to show our support.

So, that morning, we stacked the pillows in the window; each person who visited us got to throw a pillow onto the pile and write a note to be delivered along with them  if they wished.  By the end of the day we had over two dozen pillows teetering next to the door, threatening passersby with an imminent and fluffy avalanche. Last week, we had the honor of delivering them to this very worthy cause.

Jason Schaefer, our Sales Manager and an Iraq War Veteran, was joined by our Marketing Manager Catherine Berry, (whose son is currently serving) in delivering the pillows. As the Soaring Heart van pulled up, they were greeted by Fisher House Acting Manager Michelle Power and Assistant Manager Carrie Barnhart, who helped them unload the boxes and place the pillows in their new home, where they will hopefully bring some deserved rest and relaxation to the people using them.

Celebrating Earth Month 2021
Celebrating Earth Month 2021

Climate change, global warming, ocean acidification, wildlife depletion - the list of environmental challenges we are facing today is seemingly endless.  Endless and complicated - there are no "one-size fits all" solutions to problems that are clearly going to be with us for generations to come.

One thing we do know is that each of us, in our own ways, can make a difference.  We can, as the saying goes "leave our campsite better than we found it." If COVID 19 has proven anything to us over the past year, it is that we are all more connected and more dependent on each other than ever before.

At Soaring Heart one of our biggest environmental commitments is our annual GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) compliance certification.
