Bedmaker launches first carbon-neutral mattresses

GNG Group has launched its first carbon neutral-certified mattresses.

Working closely with its partners, the manufacturer has developed innovative, eco-friendly foam products that are used in its range of eco-mattresses.

Certified by Carbon Footprint and creating a fraction of the carbon footprint of regular foam, the carbon neutral-certified mattresses are economically viable to offset. British-made, re-engineered Ecofoam forms the mattress' base, and is 100% recyclable. Select mattresses include covers featuring Seaqual yarn, a fibre made from plastic waste retrieved from the ocean. The foam and cover components of the carbon neutral-certified mattresses are 100% recyclable at end of life, so will not end up in landfills, incinerators or the sea.

Part of GNG Group’s vision is driving more innovative and sustainable mattress production, and the Ecofoam and carbon neutral-certified mattresses are now an integral part of its mattress offering, available to retail, trade and contract customers.

Group chairman Phillip Whittell (pictured) says: “These elements play an important part in our drive towards ethically designed mattresses which are better for the environment. We will continue to research and innovate, sharing knowledge across our specialist divisions, to enhance and support our carbon footprint standard.”
