Soft Landing

Soft Landing is a social business providing a conscious recycling solution for the Illawarra. Did you know? Australia sends 1.25 million mattresses to landfill each year. Mattresses are the most common items put out on the curb side for council collections and almost all go to landfill. The average mattress in a landfill takes up to 0.75 cubic meters of space and contains 12.5kg of steel, 2kg of wood and 1.5kg of foam. Over three years Soft Landing will divert 78,260 mattresses from going to landfill; this equates to 54,782 cubic meters or 2,739 semi trailer loads.

Introducing Joyce Foam Products.

The Mattress Recycling Product Stewardship Scheme is proud to have Joyce Foam Products on-board as a founding member.

Joyce Foam Products is Australia’s largest and most innovative foam supplier for bedding, furniture, healthcare and industrial applications. Joyce Foam is committed to taking a shared responsibility for the whole life cycle of a mattress, to ensure they are managed in a way that reduces their impact on our environment.

Joyce has invested in Variable Pressure Foam technology to eliminate the chemical blowing agents used in the foam making process. Variable Pressure Foam technology uses atmospheric pressure as the blowing agent, made in a fully enclosed environment, so capturing all emissions during the foam making process. Joyce sources all plastics and papers used from renewable sources and recycles all foam scrap.

Joyce Foam has Good Environmental Choice Australia certification on all comfort foams, the only foam manufacturer in Australia to have this.

Whilst on the way to the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) Expo in North Carolina, USA, we had the pleasure to drop by the St Vincent de Paul Mattress Recycling Program in Oakland, California. Great to see what’s happening in other parts of the world!

The ISPA Expo only comes once every two years – the world’s largest trade show exclusively for the sleep products industry. At the ISPA Expo, mattress producers, innovators, and industry leaders come from around the globe to explore the show floor for the equipment, components, and services they need – and to envision what’s next.

Soft Landing will also take part in the international product stewardship forum on working towards better end use of reclaimed materials
