Hanseatic Bedding Products, Inc. and the RIBECO Group of Companies are environmental leaders. We were the first to introduce water recycling and biodegradable detergents in the late 1980s. We continue to invest into green and energy saving technologies, such as triple energy saving windows. HBP is the first bedding manufacturer in the world to introduce energy efficient lighting throughout its facilities and to harness the heat from the air compression units, which consume the majority of the energy used in the production process.
Our products are relying exclusively on natural and sustainable raw materials. 100% natural cotton, 100% natural down and feather, and 100% recycled poly fibers. A number of awards and certifications verify this important claim:
- We received highest marks and won in the first ever "oekotest" on down comforters.
- All our products are Oekotex certified and therefore tested through third party institutions. Oekotex certifies that there is no emission of harmful substances.
- All natural fillings are Daunasan and Daunafresh certified, which guarantees environmentally friendly processes.
- Investments in green and sustainable technology have helped us to stay globally competitive: Water is a precious and increasingly expensive resource. Our recycling units are a significant investment - and now keep our cost low.
However, being green is not enough. We adhere to highest social standards at our facilities all over the world and make sure that our partners do the same. We have therefore joined the Business Social Compliance Initiative, and all our facilities and sites are independently audited to meet a fair code of conduct. Ironically, this commitment has not come at the expense of price. We discovered that a more stable and committed workforce actually drives our quality and guarantees you a sustainable product and production.
