As the world wakes up to the dire effects of our day-to-day living on the planet, companies are becoming more aware of how our sleeping affects the environment, too. Silentnight is dedicated to having a positive effect on our planet, even during the night, with environmentally-friendly production.

Environmentally Friendly Business

Through ethical business and sustainable product development, Silentnight has evolved so that it benefits the environment around us. All waste generated across their Barnoldswick site is recycled. This means that food, foam, paper, card, polythene film, and metal waste go to local and national recycling companies.

Silentnight’s goal is to divert waste from landfills and reduce the amount of harmful toxins and gases that are released into the atmosphere. To achieve this, Silentnight have introduced the Mattress Disposal Service with their partners. All mattresses are stripped back; metal is melted, foam is crumbled and re-used into children’s play mats, and comfort fillings are re-purposed for protective clothing. They also collect and arrange environmentally friendly disposal of end-of-life mattresses, divan bases, and headboards from customers.

​The Sustainability Award

Silentnight were winners of the Sustainability Award by the Furniture Makers’ Company in 2017 and have since been constantly looking to develop their ranges to be environmentally friendly. To do this, they’ve created an ‘Eco Comfort’ collection, which has been made from recycled plastic bottles.

The Marine Conservation Society (MCS)

Silentnight have also entered into a partnership with the Marine Conservation Society (MCS). They’ve pledged to financially support the MCS to ensure that our seas are healthy, pollution-free, and protected. Silentnight’s staff will also be involved with the MCS’s wider initiatives, such as beach cleans, to protect our oceans and the beautiful creatures that live in them. Find out how you can help the MCS here.

Environmentally Friendly Organisations

Silentnight also comply with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), a government-led energy audit of all their buildings. This helps cut energy use and their carbon footprint, which has been further reduced by saving an impressive 100,000 litres of diesel per year through Job Watch, a management tool that increases efficiency.

As members of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), which protects and maintains the world’s forests, Silentnight offer their customers ethical shopping and peace of mind.
