We dream of a sustainable world

The world is a wonderful place, but could use a little more love. More love, more consideration and more rest. After all, a well-rested world is a more beautiful world.

You already do what you can to lend a helping hand. You keep your showers short, separate your waste, go by bike from time to time and perhaps cut down on the meat. That’s great. Every effort, large and small, is worthwhile.

Of course, we also do all we can to give our planet more rest. For example, in the summer we store the heat released, in the ground beneath our green factory. This means that nobody needs to go searching for a warm jumper in the winter. And drinking water is only used for drinking. For example, did you know that we use rainwater to flush the toilet and to wash our hands? We really do recycle almost everything: from your old mattress to the sawdust that falls on the floor when making your new bed.

A sustainable world, that’s what we dream of. A world in which nothing is wasted and in which everything is recycled for the next generation. It is called circular. This is our way of working towards a world without waste. Day after day we focus on making the world even more wonderful and we realise our dreams.

Allowing you to put your mind (and body) at rest when you go to bed.

In July 2019, we made another dream come true: the roof of our factory in Deventer was fitted with solar panels, satisfying 30% of our entire electricity consumption.

The world’s very first circular mattress

Did you know that 1.5 million mattresses end up on the Dutch rubbish dump every year? The pile is one thousand times the height of the Eiffel tower. That’s why we teamed up with DSM-Niaga to create a circular mattress. This is a mattress made with decent and healthy materials, which can be infinitely recycled to make a new mattress.

Our premium mattresses improved with Vita Talalay Origins®

Healthy living means eating well, getting enough exercise and taking the recommended dose of relaxation. At least as important is getting enough sleep. Or better yet: getting enough deep and healthy sleep. That requires a mattress that is good for you and good for the environment. That’s why our Maestro and Vivo mattresses have been improved with a unique comfort layer made of exclusive and natural Vita Talalay Origins®.

Leavings cushions from our leftover material

We dream of a world in which nothing is wasted. That’s why our Auping factory in Deventer is designed to waste as little as possible. Yet we still end up with leftovers from the production process. However, it’s a sin to throw anything away! Therefore, in 2016, we designed a new cushion collection, made of leftover material. This cushion symbolises the efforts we put into our work every day towards achieving our sustainable dreams.

A ‘green factory’ in Deventer

At Auping, it is all about rest. Yes, we make beds and mattresses. However, what you may not know is that we also do our best to make the site where we make our beds and mattresses as sustainable as possible. That’s why we built a new factory in 2012 integrating all kinds of smart and sustainable solutions.

Extension to the fabric collection with Molly and Points

Auping has a collection of 13 different types of fabrics in different colours, which is used to upholster headboards, box springs, mattresses, poufs and decorative pillows. It is important to us that the fabrics in our collection match our sustainability vision. This is why we added two new variants to the collection in 2015.

Auping Essential

The Essential is the world’s very first entirely recyclable bed. Made of decent materials in our very own factory in Deventer. That’s why the Essential was the first bed to be awarded the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certificate. We have received a C2C Bronze certificate. This means that we meet strict requirements in terms of material safety and recyclability. Allowing you to put your mind (and body) at rest.

Auping starts Take Back System

One thousand times the height of the Eiffel tower. That is about the height of the stack of old mattresses that ends up on the rubbish dump in the Netherlands every year. Quite unnecessary, when mattresses contain materials that are perfectly recyclable. That’s why Auping was the first in the Netherlands to launch the Take Back System; when delivering your new mattress, we also take away your old one. Even if it is not an Auping mattress.
