Protecting our seas, shores and wildlife

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with the UK’s leading marine charity, the Marine Conservation Society (MCS). 

As part of the partnership, we’ve pledged financial support to the Marine Conservation Society to ensure our seas are healthy, pollution-free and protected, while maintaining the breath-taking beauty of our enriched coastlines. 

As well as financial backing, our staff will be getting involved with the charity’s wider initiatives, such as beach cleans, to protect our seas and the fascinating creatures that live beneath. 

The Marine Conservation Society continues to do fantastic and crucial work across the UK. Last year alone, 568,000 pieces of litter were removed from our coasts as a result of MCS campaigns.  Find out how you can support the Marine Conservation Society

Proud to be carbon neutral

Proud to be carbon neutral

We’re incredibly proud to have received independent validation of our position as a carbon neutral business.

This wonderful achievement is the result of an unwavering commitment to our environment. Through ethical business practices and sustainable product development, we’ve been able to evolve our business in a way that benefits the environment around us.

What does it mean to be carbon neutral? Basically, every gram per kilometre (g/km) of carbon dioxide we emit is offset by the amount of carbon we save through renewable energy projects and energy efficiency projects. This way, we put back-into our environment what we’ve taken away.

Recycle, reuse, reduce: our zero to landfill pledge

Recycle, reuse, reduce: our zero to landfill pledge

Recycle, reuse, reduce: our zero to landfill pledge

90% of the waste generated across our Barnoldswick site is recycled - with all food, foam, paper, card, polythene film and metal waste going to local and national recycling companies.

Our objective is to divert waste from landfills and reduce the amount of harmful toxins and gases released into the atmosphere.

To help combat this we - in conjunction with our partners - introduced the Mattress Disposal Service.

All mattresses are stripped back: metal is melted, foam is crumbled and re-used into kid's play mats and comfort fillings are repurposed for protective clothing.

We also collect and arrange the environmentally-friendly disposal of end-of-life mattresses, divan bases and headboards from customers.

And to make sure we're always improving our process and making a continually positive impact on the environment, our managements systems get independently audited annually.

To improve conditions for people and wildlife we comply with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) - a government-led energy audit of all of our buildings.

This audit helps us to identify cost-effective energy-saving opportunities to help us cut energy consumption, reduce our carbon footprint and cut costs too.

We also save an incredible 100,000 litres of diesel per year through intelligent fleet management tool, Job Watch - which increases efficiency and improves road safety.
