Portland Green Double 1400 Pocket Sprung Mattress
The Portland Green Double 1400 Pocket Sprung Mattress is part of our environmentally friendly Portland Green collection of mattresses. We are very proud to be a part of the SEAQUAL community, one that is dedicated to reclaiming marine plastics and repurposing them for use in our mattress fabrics. The result is a wonderfully soft, chemical-free material, peace of mind and a peaceful nights’ sleep.
The Portland Green mattresses all use Seaqual yarn for the ticking (outer material) and they also use upcycled Polyester in the fillings. In total, a king size Portland Green mattress contains the equivalent of 200 upcycled marine plastic bottles.Features Include

SEAQUAL is an initiative with a mission to keep our oceans free from plastic pollution by up-cycling plastic marine litter into a wide range of high-quality materials.
Jointly with their collaborators SEAQUAL builds the infrastructure necessary to bring value to marine litter. Marine litter from the ocean floor and surface, deposited on our beaches by the tides and entering the ocean via rivers and estuaries is collected by ocean and beach clean-up programs. It is then sorted into different material types for revaluing. The plastic portion is cleaned and transformed into Upcycled Marine Plastic by SEAQUAL approved facilities which is then returned to industry to be transformed into beautiful, new, sustainable products. This Upcycled Marine Plastic has material traceability and certification. In choosing products containing Upcycled Marine Plastic consumers know they are choosing to help end plastic pollution.
SEAQUAL's first collaboration resulted in the award winning SEAQUAL® YARN, a high quality 100% recycled polyester fiber made in part from plastic marine waste.
