LI company's goal: 'Save the Earth one mattress at a time'

Founded in Oct. 2014, Renewable Recycling Inc.'s mission has been to "save the Earth one mattress at a time." On July 23, founder Christine Kiourtsis talked about her mattress-recycling company and the programs she has created with local municipalities. She said her vision is to ensure that mattresses never again wind up in landfills in New York State, but rather get recycled and repurposed. (Credit: Michael Owens)
