"Nothing Else Mattress" aims to make spring mattresses a more sustainable product in a circular service system of delivery, retrieving, renewal and recycling.
What do you do when your mattress need an update? Not so keen on using a mattress with a unknown past? Mattresses are expensive, durable and are costly to get rid of. Yet we tend to change mattress quite often and millions of mattresses gets thrown out in the streets and are piled up in landfills every year.

When the mattress needs an update "Nothing Else Mattress" will pick it up and provide you with a fresh mattress.
Any materials to worn or misused to reuse will be recycled or used as material for insulating Council houses and homeless shelters. This way they can help more people sleep better at night.
