Feel good, sleep well

Being at the forefront of sustainable innovative design and manufacturing, we at Jay-Be® are passionate about setting benchmarks that raise the industry standard. Offering exceptional comfort while helping to protect the future of our planet.

Our role is to design and make sleep smart, environmentally conscious products, which reduce and minimise our carbon footprint. We're also committed to educating the consumer, so they can make informed choices and better understand the part they play in moving towards a more sustainable future. Together and only together can we make a real difference.

As well as complying with all legal and regulatory standards, we seek to go beyond what is required. We continually take steps towards a more sustainable future by setting our own objectives and targets to reduce energy and water consumption, while minimising waste, all helping to preserve natural habitats and maintain biodiversity.

Sustainability.It's a biggy for us.

At Jay-Be® we take sustainability seriously. As part of our Feel Good, Sleep Well philosophy, we are proactively taking steps to contribute to a more sustainable future by continually striving to lower our carbon footprint and environmental impact. The wood used in all Jay-Be® headboards and upholstery is supplied from FSC traceable and sustainable sources. The comfort layers we use in our mattresses are recyclable and reusable, plus our intelligent and innovative use of recycled plastic materials has actively diverted the equivalent of more than 100 million bottles from going into landfill.

Our commitment through science and research.

Caring about sustainability is not new to us - we have been passionate about responsible manufacturing for many years. One of our proudest moments was back in 2008 when we won the British Furniture Manufacturer Best Bed award for the industry's first independently authenticated eco-mattress®. This inspiring product was the result of a complex and lengthy 4-year research project, working closely with specialist scientific partners and the UK Government, to understand the true eco-impact of the bed industry. The knowledge we gained by working with some of the worlds most respected scientific research institutions has proved invaluable and instrumental in helping to guide our bed and mattress development for a better future.

Proud to be FSC Accredited.

We were extremely proud to have been awarded official FSC® certification in November 2013. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation dedicated to protecting and maintaining responsible management of the world’s forests. This in turn protects the wildlife and the people who call these forests their home. By adhering to the very strict rules required to maintain our FSC® certification, we ensure that all wood used in our products is harvested from 100% traceable and approved sustainable and ethical sources. We are committed to the future of our planet and we will keep taking steps to ensure we remain one of the industry's most responsible manufacturers.

Sharing our dreams on a global scale.

Our product range is continually growing and diversifying as we discover new technologies and identify consumer needs which we can satisfy. You can now find Jay-Be® bed solutions in countries all around the world and we are proud to work closely with highly-respected local stores, national and international retailers to satisfy thousands of happy customers every week.
