Manchester-based furnishing company LOFT has announced the launch of its first range of eco-friendly mattresses.
Branded as Regenerate and with a tagline stating ‘Sleep Easy, Knowing You Put The Planet First’, the new range has sustainability at its core.
LOFT has partnered up with mattress recycling expert Bye Bye Beds to create the product, which is manufactured from 95% recycled materials, in particular previous mattresses and beds.
Commenting on the new range, LOFT sad: “Sustainability is not just a term we use lightly at LOFT. It is a guiding principle for every aspect of our operations and a core value for our business as a whole. As a People First company, the ultimate way to put people first is by firstly ensuring our planet is as clean and green as possible. It is important to take a step back and re-evaluate to ensure we are pushing our sustainability measures far enough.
“Even though we have partnered with specialist recycling companies for years to recycle mattresses responsibly, we felt like there was more to be done for this ongoing problem. That is where Bye Bye Beds comes in. A revolutionary UK based recycling company that creates a sustainable and renewable circular economy from recycled mattress materials.
“Bye Bye Beds divert mattresses and beds from landfills to their specialist centre where they then strip them down into their raw components and begin the manufacturing process of creating a new mattress. As one of these mattresses is then no longer wanted, it can return to be stripped again to create a new one.
“LOFT are proud and excited to be the exclusive supplier of this new age of sustainable products. The idea of a circular economy is something that we have been incorporating into our practices for years, through our up-cycling of furniture and substantial charity donations. We envisage of future of totally regenerative furniture and furnishings, but to achieve that we need 2 things – the products need to be of high quality and they need to be affordable.
“The comfort of these mattresses is a testament to the quality of engineering that goes into creating them. The absolute pinnacle of recycled technology by incorporating built-in sanitized hygiene all topped off by 3-layered memory cooling foam. LOFT wish for every home in the UK, and beyond, to have a Regenerate Mattress so that the circular economy can continue to spin across a larger scale. This is exactly why the prices are so affordable, sustainability should be accessible to all.”
