The waste originated by production, seeking to have the least impact possible on the environment by using less resources.
Plastic, foam, fabrics and excess wood, turning them into new materials that are later reused in production.
To reduce the carbon footprint of production in accordance with the Integrated Packaging Waste System of the Green Point Society (Sociedade Ponto Verde).
The waste, by optimizing production techniques and finding new uses and solutions for the excesses.
We created a self-sufficient work process that uses the excess foam from the production of our mattresses. That which would be a waste, becomes a raw material for new components and products, in a virtuous cycle of environmental sustainability and economic recovery.
The quality of the materials that we use, originate products that will have a longer lifecycle. Consequently, we therefore ensure a sustainable use of the resources, by prolonging the lifecycle of the products and avoiding an anticipated renewal.
We are concerned with the origin and characteristics of the materials that we use for the first time. We only select recyclable raw materials, the exploitation of which does not have a negative impact on the environment.
PBesides our attention with the ergonomics of the products, we also optimize the materials and production techniques. In this way, we aim for a conscientious process and with an inferior carbon footprint.
We produce 70% of the raw materials used in the Lusocolchão products, which allows us to control the entire production process and complete a high level of precision and quality that is unmatched in the market.
All the materials are analyzed by independent and accredited testing laboratories for content, emissions and durability.
The waste resulting from our production is sent to a partner that transforms it into new matter, reused for new mattresses. The plastic excesses are also forwarded to our plastic production unit, where they are recycled and reincorporated into new products.
The metal waste is selected and stored, whereby it is then delivered to a certified entity that forwards it for recovery. All the other waste from the production process (racks, packaging and others), is appropriately selected and forwarded for recycling and recovery.
We seek to reduce the carbon emissions associated with our production processes and with the medium and long distance transportation. Resorting to photovoltaic solar power is a goal for our factories.
Continuing to increase the reutilization of waste and proceeding with the Management Plan for Energy Reduction.
