People are becoming increasingly aware of the damaging effects of our day-to-day living on our planet. Not only can we help the environment when awake, but when we’re sleeping, too. One company that’s promising their customers a sustainable and ethical sleep is Penrose.
Penrose’s alpaca and sheep wool bedding are made from natural, renewable materials that are sourced from sustainable farms in Britain. The nature of these materials also means that the production process only generates natural waste. These leftovers are re-used in other smaller products, as Penrose aims to let nothing go to waste. Plus, sheep and alpaca wool are naturally biodegradable, so will blend back into the earth within a short space of time.
Penrose are even sustainable with their packaging. They use recycled board in all their product straps, and only print with vegetable ink. They’ve also designed their packaging to be multipurpose, so you can re-use the packaging as a calendar after you’ve unwrapped your wool bedding. As well as this, you can re-use the packaging for their duvets and toppers as a handy laundry bin, or even as a container for dried pet food.
Sustainability is also part of their methods of delivery. Orders placed with Penrose arrive to you via Parcel Force delivery, who are highly recognised for their carbon neutral delivery service. They also uphold the same ‘reduce, re-use, and recycle’ idea that Penrose carry out. By using a delivery service that works to reduce their carbon footprint, Penrose promise a sustainable service.
Ethical Treatment to Animals
Penrose recognise that people are not the only ones living on our planet, and that animals need to be cared for, too. Their alpaca wool is one of the most ethical products available. As well as this, its production is eco-friendly as no chemicals or dyes are used. The animals themselves are also given the best care and nutrition. They’re not killed for their fur or meat, and are not harmed come shearing time. No wonder Penrose is Vegetarian Society approved!
