Beds of the Future: pathways to sustainable bedding

Case Studies

Feb 1, 2024

‘Beds of the Future’ forms one of the case studies for the ARC Discovery Project, ‘Investigating innovative waste economies: Redrawing the circular economy’.

Bedding, and mattresses in particular, present a significant challenge for circular economy transitions, due to the complexity of materials involved and the costs of end of life collection and management, primarily born by local government. The research was undertaken in collaboration with the Australian Bedding Stewardship Council (ABSC) which facilitated participation by fifteen organisations, including manufacturers and material suppliers, retailers, waste managers and materials recyclers.
