Saving The Planet. Saving You Money.
DID YOU KNOW THAT…
More than 50,000 mattresses end up in US landfills EVERY DAY…
Each year, 35 to 40 million new mattresses and box springs are sold in the United States, and at least 15 to 20 million used mattresses and box springs are discarded…
Some states require retailers to collect an additional mattress recycling fee from customers on each mattress and box spring sale to fund the state’s mattress recycling program to process all this waste.
SAVING THE PLANET. SAVING YOU MONEY.
The Ultimate Earth Bed has been given an EXEMPTION by the Mattress Recycling Council from charging this mandated recycling fee due to the beneficial design of our bed being filled with NATURAL EARTH. They cannot, and need not, recycle sand. By purchasing the Ultimate Earth Bed, you not only reduce waste in the earth’s landfills, but you also get the benefit of not being charged mattress recycling fees on top of the cost of your bed!
Here at The Ultimate Earth Bed, we believe the solution to the problem of mattress waste is to be smarter about how we design what we sleep on and to present innovative ideas to help solve the underlying problem. Our way of supporting the Mattress Recycling Council is by making a product that does not require complicated deconstruction, bulky trash hauling, and can be machine washed and reused. We stand by the mission of the Mattress Recycling Council and are happy they are taking a stand to reduce the amount of mattress waste going into our planet.
About the Mattress Recycling Council
The Mattress Recycling Council was formed by the industry to operate recycling programs in states which have enacted mattress recycling laws. Connecticut’s program launched in May 2015, California’s in December 2015 and Rhode Islands’ in May 2016. Each state’s program is funded by a recycling fee that is collected when a mattress or box spring is sold. The fees pay for the transportation and recycling of the mattresses.
