Our environment is precious
Did you know that in the UK alone, an incredible 8 million mattresses are disposed of every year?! The sad fact is that the majority of these mattresses are sent to landfill. It's certainly not difficult to imagine the significant impact this has on our environment.
We want to make a difference
Thankfully, there is a solution - and we are incredibly proud to be part of it. We work in partnership with The Furniture Recycling Group (TFRG), one of the biggest recycling services in the country.
Currently, TFRG are able to recycle an impressive 7,000 mattresses every week - that's over 350,000 every year! In fact, over the last four years, TFRG have managed to save a volume in landfill of 4,720 double decker buses - this would fill Big Ben's tower over 114 times!
So how are mattresses recycled?
Working to reduce the numbers of mattresses sent to landfill, the Furniture Recycling Group separates out individual mattress components. These are then distributed to industries that can benefit from these raw materials.
Whether it's the steel used within the mattress springs, or the comfort fillings such as wool and cotton - components are re-processed by all sorts of different manufacturers. From insulation for homes to materials used in cars, a recycled mattress can be used in so many ways!
Remarkably, by choosing to recycle, 100% of your old mattress can avoid landfill!
Let's get recycling!
It's simple - we want to help to prevent mattresses being sent to landfill. And we believe that recycling should be easy.
