At the Natural Bedding Company, sustainability is at our core.
We believe that the entire lifecycle of consumer goods needs to be taken into account during production. The materials we use are all-natural and at the end of their life will return to where they came from - mother earth. We also care deeply about transparency and are committed to creating quality products that are made ethically and fairly during every stage of the manufacturing process.
From the creation of the business, being able to provide a natural, handcrafted product that does not have a negative impact on the environment has been a core value. What started off as literally a cottage industry, with Andrew making Cotton Futons in his lounge room, has evolved over the years to where we are now, crafting beautiful handmade pieces that are non-toxic and eco-friendly. What continues to inspire the brand every day is the opportunity to keep evolving and finding the best possible products and materials to ensure we stay aligned with our vision.
Sustainability is something that we focus on during every stage of production and maintaining a carbon-neutral footprint is so important as we are all responsible for the environment. Two organisations The Natural Bedding Company works with for carbon offsetting are CarbonClick and Carbon Positive Australia.
CarbonClick is our latest addition, which can be found at the checkout. Simply offset carbon emissions by adding $2 to the cart, these funds are then distributed to various offsetting projects. Each customer that opts in will offset 75.51kg of carbon - so imagine the good that happens when everyone opts in! CarbonClick supports projects like the Rarakau Rainforest Conservation Project & Tambopata-Bahuaja Biodiversity Reserve, as well as NSW Farmers Regenerating Aussie Bush.
The Natural Bedding Company donates 1% of all of our woodwork sales to Carbon Positive Australia. This organisation does amazing work and so far have been able to; plant 6,525,067 trees, sequester 651,759 tonnes of carbon, restore 5,138 hectares of degraded land & undertake research into carbon farming participation.
