Environmental FootprintWe want the world to sleep better. Not to mention a better world to sleep in.
Call it being green. Call it a distinct love for the planet. Either way, we’re proud to manufacture quality mattresses while pursuing practices that reduce our impact on the environment. Read a little more about how Sealy’s helping the planet.
As the world’s largest bedding manufacturer, Sealy Corporation recognizes the importance of environmental sustainability and takes seriously our corporate responsibility for good stewardship in this effort. We provide high-quality, durable sleep sets that provide our customers with the highest levels of comfort and wellness.
Our goal is to reach an acceptable balance between sustainability and product quality, performance and durability, based upon the practical application of the most advanced technologies available. We are currently embarking on a two-fold approach to reduce our environmental footprint:
1. To ensure that our current operations, and the operations of our suppliers, are as environmentally friendly as possible.
2. To search for economically feasible ways to improve the sustainability of our products.
Here are the steps that Sealy has taken to improve the environmental sustainability of our products:

FIRE RETARDANT MATERIALSSealy chose to use only environmentally friendly fire-retardant materials to meet the new U.S. Code of Federal Standards, Title 16, Part 1633, Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) on Mattress Sets. By design, Sealy’s fire retardant materials have inherent re-retardant properties. As a result, no chemicals, including halogens or harsh metals, are used in Sealy’s fire-retardant materials.
SECONDARY BEDDINGSealy has created an entire division to channel excess production to secondary bedding markets. This minimizes the amount of products and materials going to landfills, and includes:
