The Circular mattress concept
WHY SHOULD YOU GET THE REVOR CIRCULAR MATTRESS?
Each year, 1 million mattresses in Belgium end up as waste to be incinerated. Conventional mattresses cannot be recycled because they consist of different materials that cannot be separated. For example foam or latex, which are impossible or difficult to recycle and emit toxic substances when incinerated.
This is why we, at Revor, worked on interrupting this environmentally harmful process to contribute to a better future. This led to our Circular Mattress, which we redesigned together with Niaga®. This innovative, premium quality & very sustainable mattress can be fully disassembled and recycled after its service life, and all materials can be reused to create a new mattress. When you opt for the circular mattress, you contribute to creating a more sustainable and waste-free future. Allowing you to sleep without any worries!
WHAT DOES THE CIRCULAR MATTRESS CONSIST OF?
The entire mattress is built up out of only two materials: Steel and Polyester. These materials were chosen because they can endlessly be recycled at equal quality. All materials were also tested thoroughly for non-toxicity in order to comply with our stringent conditions. With the special Niaga® click-unclick polyester adhesive all materials can be separated after use. The Niaga® adhesive is applied when warm and creates a bond between the different layers when it hardens. The mattress can be reheated to easily separate the layers so each valuable material can be recycled in its own stream to create a new mattress.
The scannable Niaga® tag leads you to a product passport that shows you exactly which materials are used to create this special, premium quality mattress. It is therefore a fully transparent process.
RECYCLING THE CIRCULAR MATTRESS AFTER ITS SERVICE LIFE
The circular mattress has a bright orange scannable Niaga® tag to remind you that the mattress should never end up as waste.. If you scan this tag, you will be sent to a website which shows you how to return the mattress. This enables us to not only introduce a recyclable mattress, but also to carry out the recycling process in an effective manner.
The process of retrieving and recycling the mattress will probably change significantly in the next 5 years. When the first mattresses are returned, we expect there will be an optimised recycling process. The information provided by scanning the Niaga® tag will be continuously updated to ensure you will always have insight into how to return your mattress for high-level recycling into a new mattress.
