There is a special association between sustainability and sleep. Not just because sleep is a passive state, but also because both concepts may be viewed as circular phenomena. Sustainability is basically a matter of recovery and is, thus, closely tied to the fundamental idea of sleep. For this reason, we do not wish for the recovery of our body to take place at the expense of a burdened world, but rather let sleep be a state we can share with nature.
The Nordic swan ecolabel
The swan is the official Nordic ecolabel. Re mattresses and pillows are eco-certified by the swan, which means that they reduce the strain on both environment and body. The products are free of harmful substances and the entire life cycle of the product, from raw material to production, use, disposal and recycling, is included in the assessment. This is important to ensure that the overall impact on the environment and the climate is reduced. The criteria further include requirements regarding product properties that ensure quality and durability.
Today, we use more fossil energy than ever before. The consequences to both our climate and our living conditions are far-reaching. Burning fossil fuels increases the emission of greenhouse gasses and this leads to increased sea and air temperatures. Re wishes to contribute to a more stable environment and, therefore, we have chosen to power our factory with energy generated by Danish wind turbines.
A sustainable bed is also a durable bed. One of the most significant problems of our time is that we, as a society, continue to produce more and more products with a limited lifespan. Re wishes to create durable solutions and our mattresses are therefore LGA-marked as a sign of the high quality of the product.
