MADE: Springback Colorado

Mile High Workshop
Denver, Colorado


In this episode of MADE, we head back to Colorado to catch up with Chris and Roberto and Springback Colorado, a mattress recycling facility that believes in the power of employment.

SE Mission:

Springback Colorado goal is to provide a sustainable, fully functioning mattress recycling and box spring recycling enterprise that offers environmentally responsible alternatives for mattress disposal. They are intentional about offering redemptive employment opportunities to men and women in transition while making every effort to keep Colorado green through mattress recycling.

The MADE Factor:

Springback breaks down mattresses to build up lives– while doing their part to protect the environment and keep usable materials out of landfills. This philosophy of finding the good in something that is so easily discarded is what makes Springback Colorado a favorite of REDFworkshop and an inspiration to the field of social enterprise.
