Sustainability in the Bed Industry | Part One

This week we want to showcase how the bed industry is doing its part for ensuring that everything you buy for your sleep needs can be sustainable, green and better for the planet. For that reason, we have featured some of Prestige Beds best brands for sustainability in the bed world but today we focus on harrison…

Harrison is one of the biggest names in the bed industry that has been innovating, creating and manufacturing mattresses for over 175 years and within those years, they have always been devoted to protecting the way we make beds and that we should be making them with sustainability in mind.
The main focus around Harrisons Sustainability cause is their Farm in North Yorkshire. The life of your bed doesn’t start in trucks or factories, they start in a field, where the fillings that go into your bed are grown and picked from. Everything from Cotton, to wool to even hemp. And to show an amazing example of that we can showcase the Harrison Aruba 5200.

Our sleep experts have chosen this bed for the reason that it is the perfect price point for those looking for an amazing mattress at a great price, without the guilt of having a bed that doesn’t support the environment or sustainability. Inside this mattress, you will find a range of perfectly selected natural fillings. The first being a wool viscose blend which is perfect for those who are looking for a very breathable filling, meaning heat will never stay inside and linger around. As well, this pairs brilliantly with a natural cotton blend which creates that extra durability inside the mattress, meaning not only does your bed stay fresher for long with its viscose blend but also stronger with the natural wool. Finally, hemp blend is also used in this mattress for its mildew resistance as well as its breathability, giving this mattress a solid, well-rounded class to it. You can find this mattress down below…

We also want to focus on Harrison because of its devotion to changing the way bed makers really produce your mattress. They do this by using the most state of the art machines when it comes to sustainability. For example, we look at their targets for making chemical-free mattresses, where they have invested into bringing weaving back to Yorkshire where they can use botanically sourced viscose to make the mattress fabric, which is naturally fire retardant so there’s no need to add extra chemicals. As well as this, Harrison doesn’t just make their own beds, they build the machines that make your beds too. They develop and build their own ultra-fast machines on-site, which are patented and unique to the industry, and use 70% less power while working at a faster speed. Finally, we can see how their machines really get put to use when you look at their spring technology. They draw their own ultra-fine wire to reduce the weight of the steel in the mattress springs, which has led to lower energy consumption and carbon emissions in production and distribution. And to show you how these springs are put to use we showcase the Harrison Emerald 14000.

This bed features some of the most sought after features you would want in your bedroom right now. Inside the mattress, you would find an amazing mix of homegrown natural materials such as a wool viscose blend, a natural blend, flax blend and a natural cotton blend. All of these creating a sumptuous comfort layer that allows you to toss and turn and always be wrapped by the tension you choose. As well as this, the emerald 14000 mattress uses Harrisons superior award-winning support systems such as their nested revolution spring system which allows all the individual pocket springs to be hand nested allowing for better support when you move around causing less overall bounce. this bed also features an amazing combination of pocket springs paired with “Microlution technology” which allows this bed to get its best feature of a firmer but super comfortable feel throughout the entire mattress. By having this mix it means the pocket springs will move independently to your body for the best postural support as well as reduced overall bed movement. This is done by having the top layer of springs be used for shaping and contouring to your body while the lower region of the springs acts as a weight distribution centre to then keep comfort at its maximum potential.
