Sealy recognises the importance of environmental sustainability and takes seriously our responsibility for good stewardship in this effort. Sealy manufactures high-quality, durable sleepsets that provide the highest levels of comfort and support.
Our goal is to reach an acceptable balance between sustainability and product quality, performance and durability, based on the practical application of the most advanced technologies available.
Natural & Sustainable
Resources that are sustainable, can be grown or harvested without lasting impact on the environment or that leave a small carbon foot print can be classified as environmentally sensitive. With Sealy Posturepedic beds, these measures include:
- Only locally grown plantation timber is used in the manufacture of the Sealy foundations
- Fabric covers are made with a high viscose content - viscose is a cellulose fibre derived from timber sources with a soft touch and excellent moisture-management properties
A significant portion of a Sealy Posturepedic bed can be recycled, with components having a useful life after use as a bed:
- The steel in the support system and foundation modules are 100% recyclable
- The timber frames can be extracted and reused
- Foam layers can be recycled into carpet underlay and other crumb foam
In fact, the only components that can't be recycled in a Sealy Posturepedic bed are some of the small accessories such as castors.
Sealy uses a small amount of recycled materials in the manufacture of beds. The highest quality steel is used for our innersprings, so the required amount is recycled (approximately 10%).
The Durabond insulator pad also uses recycled textiles, however, these are not reclaimed from used materials for hygiene reasons. They contain textile offcuts that would otherwise be disposed of.
