By recycling your old mattress, you are converting it from waste into new, useful products. A program that orchestrates mattress recycling in several states is the ByeByeMattress program. We work with this program with the goal to collect and deconstruct old mattresses and box springs to later repurpose them, versus the alternative – incinerating them as waste products. The ByeByeMattress initiative is overseen by the Mattress Recycling Council® (MRC), the consumer-facing identity for a nonprofit organization responsible for collecting and recycling discarded mattresses and box springs in various states through statewide collection and recycling networks. The program operates and is administered through funding via visible costs to consumers - in Connecticut, for example, a Recycling Fee set by the state is $9.00 - and other purchasers of products sold in the state. This fee is specific to each state’s recycling program, and ultimately funds the ByeByeMattress operation.
As you can see, BedInABox® is the future of the bedding industry. Our mattresses are made with care, and are designed to respond intelligently to both the environment and the people sleeping on them. We try to do our part by considering our environmental impact and being conscious about the nature of our materials, both in production and disposal. Now it’s time to do your part by investing in affordable, more sustainable sleep with our Eco-Lux®. Not only is the Eco-Lux® produced responsibly with renewable, plant-derived ingredients, but is also worth the value of a newly planted tree.
