Read to Sleep is an initiative to encourage everyone to put down the screens and pick up a book or audiobook before bed. It only takes SIX MINUTES of reading to slow down the heart rate and ease tension in the muscles. And reading is proven to help you fall asleep faster AND get better quality sleep. Check out curated book picks here!



Founded by two friends, Ali Mejia and Mariela Rovito, Eberjey emerged on the simple but radical premise that we should be genuine -- genuine to connect to ourselves and our sensuality. They set out to create everyday lingerie that would feel comfortable and effortless. Lingerie that allows you to be you.

Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer Ali Mejia says:
“A good book is a nightstand essential. I find reading just before bed is the perfect way to practice self-care and find calm at the end of my day."

Ellis Brooklyn

Ellis Brooklyn was created in 2015 by Bee Shapiro, a Williamsburg mom looking for clean and sophisticated fragrance options as well as a beauty columnist for The New York Times. The fragrance and body care line features sophisticated, multilayered scents crafted with care in small batches. The eau de parfums are phthalates-free, paraben-free, PETA certified vegan and cruelty-free, sustainably sourced, eco-friendly, and utterly luxurious. Today, Ellis Brooklyn is an award-winning leader in the high-growth clean prestige fragrance market.

Founder Bee Shapiro says:
"Since I was a little girl reading books under the covers with a flashlight way past my bedtime, I've loved the escape that books can provide. I didn't grow up with much in the way of toys or material things, but I had my imagination and with books it could run wild and free."

Tuft & Needle

Tuft & Needle quickly grew from two software engineers fed up with the mattress industry to a team of over 150 people working each day to bring you premium sleep products at an honest cost. By prioritizing the customer and crafting an experience based on their feedback, we kicked off a series of industry-disrupting changes that caught the attention of customers. T&N taught sleepers that they don’t have to accept unfair practices and manipulative tactics just to get a good night’s sleep.

Co-Founder JT Marino says:
"I have a daily ritual of reading 1 page from a mentally stimulating book in the morning before I plan my day and 1 page from something fiction-based at night. I often read more—but the idea is that I can’t argue myself out of 1 page. Now I’m at the point where, if I skipped, it would be like not brushing my teeth in the morning—it just feels off."
