The journey to develop a sustainable and ethical Everpia starts with the selection of materials. Throughout the design, production, and disposal lifecycle, we prioritize materials having low impacts on the environment and society, from every thread in the Everon blanket to every spring coil in the KingKoil spring mattress. We collaborate with the supply chain to promote the use of certified eco-friendly materials and achieve our goal of increasing the use of sustainable materials over our main materials: fibers and fabrics.
With the main material to produce padding being polyester fiber, we move towards replacing the use of virgin fibers with recycled fibers. This is a type of fiber that is recycled from PET plastic bottles after use. The amount of recycled fiber we use every year for the production of padding is equivalent to recycling approximately 200 million of 500 ml plastic bottles.
Traditional fiber is gradually being replaced by Sorona fiber, a sustainable fiber whose main substance is Bio-PDO - a resin obtained through the fermentation of sugar-extracted corn. The natural process of fermentation reduces energy consumption by up to 40% and greenhouse gas emissions by about 20% compared to petroleum-based materials.
To verify the recycled content of products, environmental and social impacts, and chemical restriction, we apply the Global Recycling Standard (GRS), which is assessed and certified by Control Union.
All main fabric is 100% natural fabric derived from cotton or wood pulp:
They are not only environmentally friendly fabrics but also types of fabrics that can protect customers’ health while bringing a smooth and pleasant feel.
Because of the environmental impact of plastic packaging, it has become our key concern over the years. To minimize the impact, we used D2W plastic packaging, which helps the plastic to decompose without leaving debris and methane gas, as the packaging for the product with a single-color bed sheet. For other plastic packaging, we prioritize suppliers with sustainable production processes and gradually replace them with recycled packaging that still ensures product durability and good preservation.
