A bedroom should be a sanctuary of calm and rest – and part of that is ensuring that your mattress isn’t just comfortable, but sustainable too. We take a closer look at the latest eco-mattresses.

Making sense of mattresses

Your bed should never be an afterthought. For most people, it’s a key purchase, as befits a place where you’ll spend approximately 1/3 of your life. But where to start? Mattresses can be a tad confusing, with various types of suspension and materials, numerous shapes and sizes. Do you go for pocket-sprung, foam or memory foam? Happily, you can trust an experienced company like Dunlopillo which, despite providing beds and mattresses since 1929, has always embraced innovation and unconventional approaches to delivering a good night’s sleep to customers. The team at Dunlopillo don’t rest on their laurels in the quest to help you rest.

In love with latex

Part of that push to be innovative resulted in the invention of latex foam mattresses, of which Dunlopillo is the leading manufacturer. This breathable material is the result of extensive research and is a great way to make sure your home more eco-friendly. The mattresses are made from 100% pure latex, derived from Hevea Brasiliensis – better known as rubber trees. Dunlopillo only uses latex from sustainably managed plantations with an approach which requires patience – a single tree produces a mere 27ml of 100% pure Dunlopillo latex every day. That means it takes more than 500 days to capture enough sap for a single mattress. Those same rubber tree plantations have an added benefit – they purify in excess of 90 million tons of carbon dioxide every year.

Award-winning comfort

Rest assured, Dunlopillo’s stylish mattress range has won numerous industry awards and provide a versatile selection of options for contemporary bedrooms. The Millennium, Orchid and Royal Sovereign Mattresses are all winners of Which? Best Buy Awards, getting repeated thumbs-up from the UK’s leading consumer body. Which? simulate 10 years of use in their bed tests and praised Dunlopillo’s mattresses for their durability – yet another tick in the ethical box.
