MattressNextDay steps up efforts to tackle the climate crisis
Working with Ecologi, MattressNextDay has committed to planting 1 million trees by 2030.
As part of this effort, the online mattress retailer will plant a tree for every online order, and has become an official Climate Positive Workforce, committing to plant over 500 trees per month to help offset its workforce’s carbon footprint.
CEO of MattressNextDay, Martin Seeley, had this to say about the venture, “We have been looking for different ways to showcase our support to eco-green projects for some time now, and now we are delighted to be a part of the Ecologi team. The work that Ecologi has done for the past few years has been incredible, from generating clean electricity in countries like India to protecting and preserving forests all over the world, including the Amazon rainforest.”
Martin further added, “Alongside our partnership with Ecologi, we have also been working on other parts of the business operations to raise our sustainability efforts. We recently completed our transition to a more modern fleet with a long term goal of moving to electric vans to reduce carbon emissions even further”.
Ecologi have also said that they are thrilled to be partnering with the online mattress retailer. Linda Adams, Head of Partnerships at Ecologi, said, “We are really pleased that such an eco-conscious company like MattressNextDay has partnered with us to help them on their journey to becoming more sustainable.”
“Their dedication to the cause is evident, committing to planting 1 million trees by 2030, which will have a significant impact in sequestering thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere during that time. It’s encouraging to see the company is taking so many steps to reduce its carbon footprint and we hope more companies in the space follow their lead and play their part in this collective effort to combat climate change.”
MattressNextDay already provides a disposal and recycling service for its customers, so that no mattresses end up in landfill. Furthermore, they will look to move away from plastic packaging, and find more environmentally-friendly alternatives. Martin says “We are already in discussions with our manufacturers about greener packaging, and it’s looking optimistic that we can help make these changes happen.”
Martin concluded, “This is all exciting to be a part of, and hopefully, the work we do can really make a difference in making our planet more sustainable”.
Established in 2003, MattressNextDay specialises in providing customers with free next-day delivery.
