Mattress Nerd has been paying attention to the many voices of students across the globe who have recently been calling for a change in our living habits and the way we consume and recycle.

 

They are working in an industry where new technology is being developed all of the time to ensure that mattresses will be longer-lasting and produced with more environmental materials, and we want to ensure that our readership understands the options available to them to be mindful with their mattress disposal. 

 

They would love to hear from more students with a dedication to sustainability and conscientious buying so we can build on our own knowledge and be a contributor to offering an insight on how people can live more environmentally friendly. 

 

The best essay will be awarded a $1000 scholarship for their contribution to this important cause. For more information and to apply, visit: https://www.mattressnerd.com/scholarship/.

Applications must be submitted by April 1st, annually.
Winners are selected and notified by email by April 6th.
