THE PLASTIC CRISIS
Over eight million pieces of plastic find their way into our oceans every day.
That’s one rubbish lorry full of plastic every single minute.
Plastic doesn’t break down in the ocean.
It does kill more than one million sea birds and 100,000 marine animals each year.
THE NEMO SOLUTION
In each of our innovative mattresses they are made using 300 plastic bottles. That’s 300 bottles which don’t end up being dumped in landfill or chocking the life out of our oceans.
By the end of this year we’ll have repurposed over eight million plastic bottles. By the end of 2022, this will grow to over 16 million bottles.
What’s more, our mattresses are designed to be completely and easily recycled, preserving valuable materials and repurposing them into other products.
We can’t solve the plastic problem overnight, but we can all help to keep our world greener and our oceans cleaner.
THE STUFF DREAMS CAN BE MADE OF
By the end of 2022, Nemo mattresses will have saved over 16 million plastic bottles from being dumped in landfill.
We dared to dream of a way to reduce the plastic crisis. Every Nemo mattress is made using 300 recycled bottles.
300 recycled bottles
Each mattress starts with 300 discarded bottles. No landfill here.
The bottles are thoroughly cleaned before being crushed into pellets.
The pellets are transformed into thread used throughout the Nemo mattress.
By the end of 2021 we aim to save over eight million plastic bottles from landfill. By the end of 2022, that will grow to over 16 million bottles.
