Silentnight BedsThese days being a bed manufacturer is more than just making good, quality mattresses that consumers love. It’s also about building your company up to me an innovative and environmentally sound manufacturer too, that helps keep our planet safe and free from harm. Many of us do more than shop for bargains these days, with many of us instead focusing on products that are ethical and kind to our planet.

Which can be a big issue when mattresses have previously been known to contain materials that are hard to degrade as well as using materials from sources such as trees that were not being adequately replaced. The Sustainability Award itself was created to recognise companies who had excelled at ensuring and improving the manufacture of their furniture to include the highest provisions of sustainability. This was measured against principles set by the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) in the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme (FISP).

The award looked at more than just how a company manufactured their product, as part of the Manufacturing Guild Mark, it also looks at all the ways a company operates and how this relates to sustainability. This includes energy management, design process, how products are improved, waste management, client relationships, how products are packaged and transported, suppliers, employees and even social responsibility.

Which is exactly why it’s so exciting that one of our mattress suppliers, and much loved bed manufacturers, Silentnight have been named as the winners of this year’s Sustainability Award by the Furniture Makers’ Company, a charity that was created to champion and help various people in the furniture industry across the UK.
