The Green Wave - Sustainable Sleep
Young people around the world are paying close attention to how responsible and environmentally-friendly brands and businesses they interact with are. When it comes to student accommodation, universities can lead the way by ensuring its beds and mattresses are completely recyclable and never go to landfill as a result.
We provide an ideal opportunity for accommodation owners to create the perfect night’s sleep, combining excellent sustainable credentials with supreme, world-renowned comfort. For example, Hypnos’ mattresses include sustainable fibres and are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their life, thanks in part to the exclusion of chemical-based foams. Furthermore, its divans are built using timber from fully managed, FSC-certified sources and the bedmaker has been carbon neutral for over a decade.
These developers, universities and private accommodation brands can boost their green credentials by collaborating with businesses that have outstanding sustainable track records, whilst they work to improving their own day-to-day processes. By taking steps that tackle three key areas: waste, efficiency and suppliers, universities can prove that they are committed to positive environmental change and in turn attract discerning students to their accommodation.
Richard Naylor, Sustainable Development Director at Hypnos, said: “ With natural and sustainable materials, our standard five-year guarantee as well as anti bed-bug and anti-microbial protection, our products are perfectly suited to meeting the rising demand for premium, sustainable student accommodation.”
Environmental awareness and responsibility is changing the way that businesses across every sector behave, whether that’s cutting emissions or using less plastic packaging. This responsibility is not something that accommodation or hospitality providers can ignore, as there is simply too much attention being paid to the issue and it is undoubtedly beginning to impact customer spending habits.
