The Mustard Seed is honored and thrilled to be a recipient of a National Philanthropy Day award in the category of Social Entrepreneur & Innovation. The award is in recognition of our successful Mattress Recycling social enterprise. Since 2011, The Mustard Seed has recycled more than 120,000 mattresses, diverting more than 2.6 million cubic feet of waste from the landfill. The Mustard Seed is the only nonprofit mattress recycler in the state of Florida and one of only a handful of operations in the United States.
The National Philanthropy Day awards ceremony and breakfast will take place Nov. 9 at 7:15 a.m. at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.
