Reducing Local Erosion
Our factory is located very close to the beautiful Atlanta Beltline. During construction, we learned the city was battling erosion issues so we donated pallets full of scrap coir fiber, the 100% natural material derived from coconut shell husks we use to make insulator pads for some of our crib mattresses. The material was stacked and staked down to provide an effective and eco-friendly solution to erosion control. The Atlanta BeltLine is a sustainable redevelopment project that provides a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit along a historic 22-mile railroad corridor circling downtown and connecting many neighborhoods directly to each other. It is transforming our city with a combination of rail, trail, greenspace, housing and art.
