We're closing the loop to ensure your Naturalmat mattress never ends up in landfill.

With a proliferation of low quality products, 100-day sleep guarantees and changing preferences, people are replacing their mattresses much more frequently than they used to, which is creating a mountain of waste – and an environmental disaster. Over 5 million mattresses end up in landfill every year in the UK alone, a terrifying statistic.

At Naturalmat, we do things differently. We take pride in every mattress we make and we want them to be enjoyed and cherished for many years. When the time comes, every one of our mattresses can be broken down into its individual component materials, each of which can be either composted, reused or recycled rather than being thrown away.

With our Mattress for Life Initiative™, you can rest assured that absolutely nothing will go to landfill when your Naturalmat reaches the end of its lifespan around 10 years from now.

Here are the three options available to you at that point:

  • 1. Refurbish

    We’ll collect your Naturalmat from your home and bring it back to our Devon workshop. There, our skilled team will take your mattress apart, replace any compressed or damaged fibres and put a brand new cover on it. It’ll be good as new for around half the price of a new mattress.

  • 2. Recycle

    If you would prefer not to refurbish your mattress, we can recycle it for you through our partners TFR. With over 10 years of experience in mattress recycling, they share our vision of ensuring that nothing ends up in landfill. You’ll receive a 10% discount towards your next purchase as a thank you from us.

  • 3. Donate

    If your mattress is in an acceptable condition we will take it back and send it to our partners in Liverpool who have invented the world’s first mattress washing machine, called Mattilda! It will be thoroughly cleaned and then donated through their network of charity partners, supporting our mission to alleviate sleep poverty.

Already a Naturalmat customer?

If you already own a Naturalmat and would like to send it back to us, please fill in the form below and we'll be in touch to discuss the options available. Currently we can only accept mattresses from our Bedroom collection, but we are working on a recycling solution for Nursery mattresses. In the meantime, we've put together an end-of-life guide to help you repurpose the fillings inside your old Nursery mattress.

T&Cs: The Mattress for Life Initiative™ is only available to UK customers. It is not applicable to nursery mattresses and toppers. The Mattress for Life options can only be availed along with a new Naturalmat purchase from the bedroom section, with the exception of the Refurbish service. The Recycle service discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers.
