If you’re looking for ways to make sustainable purchases, you’ll be pleased to learn that we showcase a variety of brands that implement eco-friendly practices at the forefront of their operations. Discover our top suggestions here and what makes them sustainable.
Mattresses shouldn’t cost the earth, which is why Silentnight incorporates Eco Fibres into every Eco Comfort Breathe 1200 Mattress. These fibres are made from recycled plastic bottles and have prevented an astonishing 105 million of them from ending up in our oceans. You don’t have to worry about Eco Fibres compromising comfort, as they remain utterly breathable and soft for a great night’s sleep.
Beyond this, Silentnight is committed to becoming a net zero-carbon brand by 2040. Their zero-to-landfill policy is helping the brand achieve this, and every Silentnight Eco Comfort Breathe 1200 Mattress is fully recyclable with their recycling scheme.
Known for incorporating natural fillings and fibres, Hypnos is very much dedicated to providing sustainable and ethical sleeping solutions. Their Planet Mark accreditation reflects this mission, as they’ve been carbon-neutral for over a decade too.
Not only this but all the natural materials used across the Hypnos range are grown and farmed responsibly and ethically. Working with Woolkeepers and Red Tractor, all of their natural fibres can be traded to the farms where they were provided. All of this combined, the Hypnos Premier Bedstead Mattress is sustainable and affordable. Still, every mattress in the Hypnos range champions sustainable values.
Dunlopillo is a brand that always incorporates latex into their mattresses, whether one element or exclusively latex. It’s one of the most environmentally-friendly materials used in beds because the trees that produce latex purify over 90 million tons of carbon dioxide a year.
Ensuring their latex is sourced from sustainable and ethical plantations, Dunlopillo has become the master of latex mattresses. As well as being eco-friendly, latex is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-allergenic and mimics the comfort of memory foam but with much stronger breathability. The Dunlopillo Millennium Mattress is one of their bestsellers.
JAY-BE had gone above and beyond when it came to the production of their e-Fibres. Using 99% less water and land space than cotton fibres, the e-Fibre expels 90% fewer CO2 emissions too. Made from recycled plastic bottles, they’ve prevented over 70 million of them from going to landfills or oceans. They’re also committed to a zero-to-landfill policy like many other eco-friendly brands.
Every JAY-BE mattress is compressed and vacuum-packed for delivery. This reduces its size by 70%, meaning delivery drivers can deliver more on one journey. The Benchmark S7 Tri-brid Mattress is one example of the many sustainable mattresses of the JAY-BE collection.
Sustainability in Airsprung’s Eco Hybrid Mattress is incorporated across many elements, from its cover to its comfort layers comprising fibres made of recycled bottles. The Repreve mattress cover is made using 100% high-risk plastic of ending up in our oceans, collected from coastlines and waterways. On top of all of this, Airpsprung donates all its unsaleable returns to charity or to be recycled, contributing to a more circular economy.
We’ve only mentioned a few of our favourite sustainable mattresses here. Still, our range is full of brands that champion these values.
