Our Sustainability Commitment

Thursday Aug 26, 2021

We are proud stockists of the world’s most sustainable bed manufacturer; Harrison Spinks, available at both our Chelmsford & Braintree department stores.

Harrison Spink’s have been on our sustainable journey longer than any other business in the industry and they are on a mission to change the way the world sleeps.

Harrison Spinks are world leaders in luxury sustainable comfort, driven by making mattresses which support healthy sleep and are kind to the environment. This means they only use the finest sustainable materials in handmade beds.

They are committed to protecting the environment and this world-leading brand has been recognised with not one, but two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Sustainable Development.

Harrison Spinks are proud of their Carbon Neutral+ classification and by the end of 2021 they will be fully net carbon zero.

Making an Eco Promise

Harrison Spinks are focusing on total sustainability. All new mattresses are designed with these core principles in mind –

  • Foam-free – unlike many bed manufacturers they don’t use any foam in the construction of their beds and mattresses
  • Glue-free – the revolutionary Cortec™ spring technology not only improves the sleep experience, but the glue-free design ensures their mattresses can be fully recycled at the end of life
  • Free from FR chemical treatments – by using the finest in natural and sustainable ticks and fillings, they can avoid nasty FR chemicals
  • Fully recyclable – 100% of production is recyclable at the end of its life; that’s no throw-away line! They will recycle their mattresses without charge – locally, in their own recycling point

Harrison Spinks do all of this, so you sleep better at night. And with their total sustainability ethos, so do they!
