Sustainability at LBC

For decades, we have been at the forefront of sustainable business practices, committed to reducing its environmental footprint. Our unwavering dedication to sustainability is evident in every aspect of our operations. From pioneering initiatives like our self-owned water treatment plant to adopting 100% green energy in our manufacturing processes and even establishing our recycling company, our supplier has consistently set industry benchmarks.

Our Certifications

At Latex Bedding Co we never compromise on quality. We meticulously oversee every aspect of quality throughout our production process, guaranteeing the exceptional quality of our mattresses, pillows, and toppers. We continuously seek innovative ways to enhance both our product quality and productivity, a commitment our customers truly appreciate.

Oeko-Tex 100

Our Supplier has been awarded the Öko-tex 100 “free of harmful substances” quality label. Laboratory tests have proven that our products are free of harmful substances that pose a threat to the health of humans and to the environment.

FSC

Through control organisations like Rainforest Alliance, our products are produced with materials from responsibly managed forests providing full transparency and traceability throughout the whole process.

LGA

LGA tests prove that our products excel in durability and elasticity. By complying with these standards, Latexco mattresses automatically meet all requirements to carry the Eco label of the European Community.

Eurolatex

Tests developed in association with TFI (Deutsches Teppich Forschungsinstitut – Aachen) show that Latexco products meet the EuroLATEX ECO-Standard. This standard defines the maximum acceptable limits of toxic substances or substances considered harmful to health in latex foam cores.

Eco Institut

Conducted by the ECO Institute, Germany, this test evaluates the fillers, synthetic rubber and hazardous components and emissions in the product confirming that our latex cores are free of fillers, synthetic rubber or hazardous particles, thus being certified as 100 % natural.

Sustainable Sourcing of Raw Materials

Sustainability begins with the careful selection of raw materials. Each mattress contains a significant proportion of natural latex, derived from the renewable source of the tropical rubber tree (Hevea Brasiliensis). These rubber trees, found across the globe, play a crucial role in neutralising over 90 million tons of CO2 annually, demonstrating our commitment to environmentally responsible sourcing.

100% Natural Latex

Efficient Energy Management

Over the past eight years, we have significantly reduced our energy consumption by nearly 50% through strategic investments in cutting-edge technologies and ongoing efforts to optimize energy usage. Furthermore, our commitment to sustainability is evident in the extensive installation of solar panels, harnessing clean, renewable energy sources. The remaining electricity we require is sourced from 100% certified green energy providers, further reducing our carbon footprint.

"We take great pride in contributing our share towards building a world of sustainability"

Revolutionary Wastewater Recycling

Our substantial investments in wastewater recycling technology have yielded remarkable results. Our supplier employs an innovative, award-winning technique that thoroughly purifies our wastewater, making it suitable for reuse within our closed-loop water circuit. This approach not only conserves water resources but also minimises the environmental impact of our operations.

Closing the Loop: Recycling Initiatives

Seventeen years ago, our suppliers were established as a subsidiary dedicated to transforming our latex waste into valuable new products. This initiative allows us to recycle a staggering 4,000 tons of waste annually, demonstrating our commitment to minimising waste and promoting a circular economy.

At Latex Bedding Co, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a core principle that guides every decision we make. We are proud to lead the way in sustainable business development and are continually striving to set new standards for environmental responsibility in our industry.
