Our Story

Our work first began as a nonprofit formed in 2017 to recycle mattresses in San Antonio, TX. As part of a creative reuse project, we started recycling old memory foam mattresses into dog beds. We cut the used mattresses into smaller pieces and sewed salvaged fabric onto them.

Some of these first generation beds have been donated and were our prototypes. We received a strong response from our local pet lovers. They were excited to have a dog bed that aligned with their desire to shop for sustainable products. To meet demand, we decided to scale up the operation under a new startup called Re_mat Pet.
