Savvy Rest do not accept returns on pillows, claiming that this would require them to spray their products with chemicals, so they could resell them. Some other companies donate returned products, so it’s a shame Savvy Rest don’t have a similar policy. That said, Savvy Rest do donate new pillows through their Safe Sleep Pillows Program. This program works to donate new pillows for women and children who arrive at domestic violence shelters across the US. When the new arrivals at these emergency shelters move on to find more permanent housing, they can take their new Savvy Rest pillow with them.
Savvy Rest are also employee owned (as of 2012), meaning that staff are more invested in the company’s growth and in customer satisfaction. Employee owned companies tend to create a better experience for employees and for customers.
Savvy Rest use certified organic cotton for their pillow cases. This cotton is free from pesticides, herbicides, and toxic finishing chemicals, as certified by GOTS. They are also a certified B Corporation, demonstrating a commitment to sustainability and good working conditions, and they donate a portion of profits to American Forests, the oldest nonprofit conservation organization in the US, which helps help restore and maintain threatened forest ecosystems across the country and around the globe. Savvy Rest is also a member of the Carbon Fund, through which they support reforestation along the Mississippi River, a vital habitat for migratory birds. Reforestation is a key part of efforts to mitigate climate change.
Savvy Rest Shredded Latex Body Pillow vs. Savvy Rest Kapok Body Pillow
This latex body pillow is not as soft as Savvy Rest’s Kapok Body Pillow, so it is a great choice for side sleepers looking for a little more support for good spinal alignment as well as those with neck and shoulder pain. For those who are pregnant or looking for a body pillow as a nursing aid, the softer kapok pillow may be preferable (View Price on Savvy Rest).
