Nature sits at the heart of our story.
It’s our inspiration. We use its resources consciously. We give back to it responsibly. We ensure that with our actions, we’re doing what we can to minimise our impact on the planet and to create a more sustainable future for our children, and theirs.
At every step of the manufacturing process, we’ve kept nature in mind.
We’re used to pushing limits, striving for more and seeking solutions to challenges. That drive to dream big is what took our founder to the summits of the world’s toughest mountain tops in the planet’s most breathtaking environments. It was in the conquering of these peaks that he realised that a love of our beautiful planet demands participation in the fight to save it.
Calling on over 20 years experience, and four generations of mattress-making in his blood, teddy’s founder imagined a mattress that offered the most supportive night’s sleep, while reducing harm to the planet.
Our promise to sustainable dreamers
When we sleep, our deepest desires surface in the form of our wildest dreams of what tomorrow holds. Teddy mattresses are made for all dreamers – big and small. Those who also hope for a better tomorrow, by making more responsible choices today.
Each partner in the teddy supply chain will be ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) rated before 2025. All our materials are OEKO-TEX® 100 certified, and Eco-friendly REACH approved. We donate our time, services, and a percentage of our sales to Trees that Count in New Zealand to help reverse the tide. We know that our business activity – from sourcing timber to spring – creates pollution as a by-product.
So, we work steadily to reduce those harms, using recycled plastic from the oceans, up-cycled steel and ethically-sourced timber.
While this may seem like a drop in the ocean, being sustainable starts with taking small steps towards a bigger picture.
We at teddy will continue to improve at every step of our process as we strive towards becoming New Zealand's most sustainable mattress company.
