We're Proud to Support Our Local Community

My name is Bryan Umiker, and I founded The Ethical Mattress Company in 2022.  As a 20+ year resident of Maplewood NJ, my goal was to open a neighborhood sleep shop that would serve my neighbors in Essex, Union and Morris counties.  Our mission is to Change the World, One Mattress at a Time, and that starts by giving back to our local community, and by treating each customer that visits our store the same way would would treat our neighbor.  

First, we serve our community by providing them with a superior and affordable selection of mattresses and pillows, all of which are exceptionally well-made here in New Jersey for a better night's sleep, and naturally and sustainably sourced for a better world.

Second, we serve our community by giving back.  This means stepping up to support our local schools, clubs, organizations and events.  Below you will find a partial list of local groups we have supported either financially, or with contributions of time and talent, or a combination of both.

With all due respect to my competitors, the reality is they do not give back to our community.  Mattress Firm doesn't donate to the PTO fundraiser for your kid's school.  Casper doesn't support the high school musical by buying an ad in their program.  Avocado doesn't sponsor or coach a tee-ball team in your town's youth-rec league.  Macy's & Bloomingdale's don't sponsor or volunteer to help the town music festival.

We're proud to be the locally owned mattress store of choice for Millburn, Short Hills, Maplewood, South Orange, West Orange, Montclair, Livingston, Springfield, Summit, Chatham, New Providence & Westfield. 

Stop by our store, neighbor.  Make the #ShopLocal choice and choose the sleep shop that gives back to our local community. Together, we will change the world one mattress at a time.
