FOAM JUST GOT GREEN-ER
Hempur Material™ is a proprietary blend of hemp cellulose fibers with other proven foam products to which provides an incredible array of benefits!
Hempur Material™ was designed to displace non-biodegradable elements of foam for a more sustainable comfort product that performs over time. It's made from carbon-positive raw materials which means the more it's grown, the bigger the positive impact on the environment! For every ton of hemp grown, 1.6 tons of carbon is removed from the atmosphere.
THE FIRST EVER SUSTAINABLE, COST-EFFICIENT BEDDING FOAM
Hempur Material™ generally costs about the same or less than plastic products that are potentially harmful for the environment.
WHAT'S GONE WRONG?
With the boom of the Mattress-in-a-Box industry, an incredible number of new bed makers have entered the market, many producing poor quality mattresses. Beds that
lasted 10 years or more are being replaced by inferior products with durability issues. As a result, buyers are replacing beds at a faster rate which means we are dumping
more non-biodegradable materials back into earth a an unprecedented rate.
Under pressure from synthetic textile lobbyists, the U.S. government banned hemp to open the door for non-earth-friendly synthetics. They enacted prohibitive tax laws and levied an excise tax upon the nation’s many hemp dealers. The plant was ultimately banned altogether, temporarily closing the door on one of the most beneficial and historically significant plant-based materials in American history.
In 2018, Hemp was legalized at the federal level and having recognized it's number of benefits, began to offer incentives for development utilizing it!
