Reduce

Open Your Eyes Bedding is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • We will be creating an affordable, biodegradable, organic mattress and mattress topper kit filled with hemp hulls, opening a potentially large new market for this amazing carbon-storing plant.

  • All UPS Ground product shipments sent from OpenYourEyesBedding.com and NaturalFillingStore.com will ship using the Carbon Neutral Shipping Program (See CarbonNeutral.com for details).

Other Sustainability Notes

We are a micro-business who believes if everyone does one small thing collectively it can help the world more easily achieve the necessary carbon reductions to combat climate change. Open Your Eyes Bedding is proud to offer our one small thing; the world's first 100% DIY biodegradable mattress. We are the first mattress company to test and confirm that buckwheat hulls are naturally flame resistant and do not require added chemical flame retardants to pass the rigid flammability standard for mattresses. Open Your Eyes Bedding is also the first company to design a modular mattress. We call it sustainability by design. Imagine a mattress that can never wear out, that can grow or shrink to any size you need. A mattress ticking that is removable and washable. Fillings that are able to be refreshed and replaced only if necessary. We encourage our customers to mend and maintain their mattress and to make their mattress purchase with Open Your Eyes Bedding one that is for life. You can do your one small thing when deciding on your next important mattress purchase. Hemp is going to be a big part of our new line of DIY mattress materials. Hemp is going to be the plant of the future due to its better than zero carbon footprint. A hemp mattress can be one easy step for anyone who wants to offset their carbon footprint in their own home. We would love to hear from anyone who wants help with doing their part by making their own carbon zero mattress! Thank you Climate Neutral for certifying us and sharing our Brand with people who are as concerned with climate change as we are.
