OMF Sustainability Actions

Partnering with Seaqual

OMF has partnered with Seaqual to design mattress fabric material that uses up-cycled plastic - PET bottles that have been cleaned up from the ocean. Seaqual pays fishermen to collect garbage and bring it ashore. The waste then gets sorted and up-cycled into products for consumer use, including our very own Ocean Choice 7 mattress which is our first mattress using this up-cycled material in the top paneling of the mattress.

Working towards paperless business

We are reviewing our processes and procedures and, where possible, cutting out printing paperwork completely. During COVID we moved to a completely remote business and all of our files had to be shared digitally. There was no option of printing and collaborating with physical documentation. This habit has continued since coming back to the workplace.

FSC certified timber

We request all our furniture and timber product partners only use FSC certified timber in our products. The Forest Stewardship Council is is an independent international organisation. In order to supply FSC® certified wood, primary product suppliers have to prove our forests are managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner.

Community - helping those in need

We have partnered with the Salvation Army to donate mattresses to those in need - especially in the aftermath of natural disasters such as floods and fires.

CertiPUR-US certified foams

All of our international sourced mattresses utilise foams that are CertiPUR-US certified. CertiPUR-US certified foams are: ✓ Made without ozone depleters ✓ Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants ✓ Made without mercury, lead, and other heavy metals ✓ Made without formaldehyde ✓ Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission ✓ Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)

Ethical Trade Audits

OMF suppliers - including our overseas suppliers - are subject to independent third party audits randomly assigned and selected by OMF. The scope of these audits is inclusive of labour laws, workplace health and safety, the environment and business ethics.
