An excerpt from: http://www.themattressmaker.ca/
The Mattress Maker is a man with a passion for building healthy and sustainable mattresses. And every one he makes is meticulously crafted to suit each one of his customers. The Mattress Maker is Dean Halstead, a craftsman who founded Calgary’s first natural mattress business back in 1984. He’s a veteran mattress specialist, motivated by perhaps the oldest “new idea” around: create a more natural mattress, tailored to the unique needs of each client.
A mattress by The Mattress Maker is a hand crafted piece, tailor-made for you, your body and your comfort. Pocket coils, latex, foams, gels – we will use all available non-toxic materials and technologies to ensure you get the most revitalizing and refreshing sleep possible.
We create mattresses that themselves can be revitalized and refreshed. That way, if your needs change due to injury, illness, or preference, we can adapt it for you. In fact, the entire mattress can be renewed, providing you with peace of mind for not contributing another mattress to the pile at the dump.
The purpose of this group is to facilitate conversations between entrepreneurs and people in startups. Hosted by Cameron Chell, a serial entrepreneur and startup creator himself, we would like you all to share your experiences here and learn from each other the finer points of creating a successful startup. This group is not designed for deal-flow but rather a place to gain knowledge, expertise and advice for people planning to start their own companies and entrepreneurs alike.

Who: All individuals, organizations and businesses with an interest in advancing sustainability in Calgary are welcome
Why: Calgary is at a defining moment in its history. The choices we make today will shape our city and region for decades. Those choices can increasingly promote and accelerate sustainability, or they can perpetuate business as usual – and the missed opportunities for innovation and lack of resilience that go with it. The breakfast series is intended to:
- Bring people together, including unlikely allies
- Provide a forum for introductions and networking
- Profile organisations engaged in sustainability and local initiatives
- Explore key questions on topics central to sustainability in Calgary
- Create space for idea generation and synergies that could lead to innovative action.
The event is free of charge and breakfast is served!

Make it Good works through partnerships, networks and knowledge sharing.
Make it Good, a social-profit organization, addresses the barriers and challenges that exist for individuals and organizations as they work towards greater sustainability. We confront these barriers and challenges by working collaboratively to change the systems that keep us disconnected from a sustainable society.
Make it Good facilitates and supports wise action. We create a space for thoughtful dialogue where people can come together to better understand the challenges that affect our communities and to uncover the possibilities and opportunities that exist to move beyond them.
Our approach is integrative; we connect individuals and groups across sectors to provide the customized tools, processes and resources that community leaders require to create positive change.
There is no coordinating instrument that supports and promotes these activities and Make It Good aims to fill that role.
