Mattress and bed manufacturer Sleepeezee has become the first in the industry to secure Planet Mark certification for two years in a row.
Sleepeezee, which offers adjustable beds for mobility needs, claims to lead the way when it comes to sustainable practices in the industry.
It was awarded Carbon Neutral Status in 2017 and achieved pas2060 Carbon Neutral Status this year, offsetting over 1,388 tonnes of CO2 from 2017 to 2019, with no waste going to landfill since 2012.
This is the equivalent of offsetting 30 homes or taking over 300 cars off the road, Sleepeezee revealed.
The company prioritises ethically sourced materials, forward-thinking manufacturing processes and environmental projects at both a local and international level.
From planting 478 trees in local schools in Kent to supporting fossil fuel reduction schemes in Indonesia and India, and deforestation projects in the Amazon, Sleepeezee aims to make a positive global impact.
Howard Wilson, joint managing director at Sleepeezee, commented: “Our business is dependent on natural resources to make beds that deliver an excellent night’s sleep.
“We have a simple and clear belief that one of our fundamental duties is to ensure our activities do not have a detrimental impact on the planet.
“The Planet Mark has undoubtedly helped us achieve these milestones by providing an independent, credible reporting system, encouraging us to continually focus on new objectives and communicate to our stakeholders while enabling the business to grow without compromising our ultimate responsibility – to safeguard the planet for future generations.
“Sleepeezee is proud to be the first bed manufacturer to achieve the Planet Mark and to maintain this for the second year running.”
