The UK’s first fully recyclable bed has been launched by Happy Beds after working with German company Room in a Box. The bed is made from corrugated cardboard, and it is the first bed in the UK that can be completely recycled.
It is made from 70 per cent recycled materials, and the entire product is recyclable. It has a minimalist, modern look that is designed to have good air flow due to the concertinaed structure. No nuts or bolts are needed to build the bed, meaning users can avoid plastics and other harmful products which aren’t easily avoided with traditional beds.
The bed is available in four colours – classic cardboard, white, black and petrol. It has a low carbon footprint, and it is suitable for vegans with no animal products used throughout production. It has been designed to be a versatile product that can be easily transported and stored.
Joy Richards, a sleep specialist at Happy beds said: “Our company ethos is “because everyone deserves a good night’s sleep” and that shouldn’t be any different for anyone looking for an eco-friendly alternative to a classic bed.
“Environmental issues are becoming increasingly important issues for shoppers in the UK, and Room in a Box’s strong sustainability credentials and fair production techniques will provide people with an affordable option to help them soothe their eco-conscience and sleep comfortably.”
Gerald Dissen, Co-Founder of Room in a Box said: “We started Room in a Box in 2013 with the vision to create eco-friendly and super portable furniture, and we’ve gone from strength to strength. Our customers love our sustainable corrugated cardboard furniture because it helps them live a low-emissions life, while also being extremely durable.”
