One of The Comfort Group’s core values centres on the growing sustainability story. We’re constantly working to create products & practices that are gentler on the planet. We use and recycle foams and offcuts from all our New Zealand factories to produce carpet underlay for Sleepyhead Flooring. And also in New Zealand, our spring offcuts aren’t wasted but sent to steel manufacturer Pacific Steel to be reused in steel and wire products.
In 2019, TCG launched Project Zero across all our markets. Project Zero is the journey we are undertaking towards a more sustainable future as a leading Australasian business. Our environmental footprint is now part of the design process for our product ranges starting with a fully recyclable mattress range in New Zealand through to pillows made of Ecoloft fibre that’s made from plastic bottles destined for landfill.
In Australia, we were one of the founding companies to launch Soft Landing – a social initiative where mattresses are collected and recycled.
And in our product, we’re ensuring many of our mattress ranges are made of organic and natural fibres. This includes sustainable latex sourced from Sri Lanken rubber trees as well as cottons, silks, wools and Cashmere. Our bed bases too are made of locally sourced woods like pine that are sourced from sustainably accredited suppliers.
