Save the planet while you sleep

Save the planet while you sleep

When it comes to protecting the planet, why not start with a memory foam mattress. For starters, they're fully recyclable but, there's a bunch of other positives too. We've been working on a whole range of innovations to make our mattresses as green as possible so, let's delve in and take a look at why your next mattress should be a Memory Foam Warehouse one…

New research has shown that us Brits’ have bad bed habits. With 1 in 4 throwing their mattress away in under 4 years and 22 million of us admitting to throwing our mattress away within 7 years. If all mattresses were utilised for 8 years and upwards (which is when the bed industry recommends you should consider getting a new one) this would save 2.9 million mattresses a year ending up going to waste. With this in mind, these figures alone are enough to make you really take a step back and recognise why it’s important to invest in longer-lasting mattresses that cut down these figures, are kinder to the environment and help you sleep with a clear conscience.

Memory Foam Mattresses, Yorkshire born and bred

All of our mattresses are manufactured from our UK base in West Yorkshire, where we minimise packaging and lead the way on innovative ways to be as sustainable as possible. Here at MFW we’re also proud to be a member of Made in Britain. Plus, because our mattresses are British made, it means there’s less mileage for your delivery to reach you, therefore lowering our carbon footprint.

Wave goodbye in a green way

Depending on the composition and quality of your mattress, it’s recommended to replace it around every 8-10 years for pocket sprung or up to 15 years for memory foam. However, when the time does come that you’re ready to say goodbye to that dated, lumpy mattress why not check out our previous blog, 10 environmentally friendly ways to get rid of your old mattress that don’t include just chucking it away at the local tip.
