Leesa Named Again Among 2021 ‘Best for the World’ B Corps

Out of 4,000 certified B-Corps worldwide, Leesa ranked in the top 5% of companies committed to the economic and social well-being of their communities.

Virginia Beach, VA., July 14, 2021 – Leesa, a leading sleep essentials company dedicated to crafting highest-quality mattresses made for good causes, was named again to the 2021 Best for the World™ List of certified B Corporations.

Companies named to this list demonstrate exceptional impact in one or more areas evaluated on the B Impact Assessment for B Corp certification. All B Corps are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

Out of the 4,000 certified B Corps across the globe, Leesa ranked in the top 5% of companies that contribute to the economic and social well-being of their communities.

“We’re incredibly honored to be recognized again as one of the Best for the World B Corps of 2021,” said Michael Akrop, chief executive officer at Leesa. “Giving back to the community is at the core of who we are—and we're on a mission to make sure everyone has a safe place to rest. It’s a responsibility we take seriously and look forward to finding even more ways to impact lives this year.”

Leesa has been a certified B Corp since 2016 and continues its commitment to making the world a better place. Leesa donates 1 mattress for every 10 sold to someone in need.

In 2020 alone, Leesa delivered 3,000 supplemental bed kits to hospitals in need during the pandemic. During community lockdowns, the company pivoted to focus on creating a special product bundle to meet the needs of local and regional healthcare facilities. Leesa co-founder Jamie Diamonstein quickly designed a twin frame and mattress specifically for hospital use. See how else Leesa made an impact in 2020!
