Snooze is one of Australia’s largest bedroom specialists, operating over 80 stores in Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, South Australia, Tasmania, and Western Australia. We offer an extensive range of mattresses, mattress bases, upholstered and timber beds, bedding, linen and bedroom furniture.
Now, our journey for a more sustainable planet is just beginning. We are working with suppliers and manufacturers to develop more sustainable products and packaging. We are also working with social enterprises and organisations to rid landfill of mattresses with alternative disposal options.
We acknowledge our journey is only beginning, and many obstacles will come along. Nevertheless, we are proud to start our journey with bedding and linen in a quest to make the world a better place.
We partner with Plastic Bank® to produce our Suprelle® Blue quilt. Our quilt is filled with 100% Suprelle® Blue fibre, made from ocean-bound bottles collected and recycled with the aim of reducing plastic pollution worldwide. Plastic Bank® builds ethical recycling ecosystems in underprivileged coastal communities. Empowering locals by offering premium payment or services in return for collected plastic waste, Plastic Bank® has created a circular recycling economy.
Our Organic Stone Washed Cotton sheet set, and quilt cover set are GOTS certified. GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
We are proud to be partnering with manufacturers whose mattress bags are 100% LDPE (low density polyethylene). This means the material can be recycled at local supermarkets recycle bins.
The cardboard packaging for our bedding range is 100% recyclable and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® for the responsible management of forest resources.
Snooze partners with Recycle My Mattress which works with the likes of a social enterprise Soft Landing. Soft Landing aims is to save mattresses from landfill.
Soft Landing can dispose of your mattress or base from $40 to $77 per item (depending on where you reside). Soft Landing operates in ACT, VIC, WA, and parts of NSW, including Sydney, Illawarra, Hunter, Queanbeyan and Willoughby Council, and Armadale Council. If you reside in an area apart from the above, contact your local council, as many councils are trying their own recycling programs for mattresses and bases.
The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) is a not-for-profit organisation leading the development of a circular economy for packaging in Australia.
Every year in Australia, almost a million mattresses are sent to landfill. At Snooze Sleep Management Pty Limited (Snooze) we are on a journey to assist in curbing this significant problem.
That’s why we’re a member of the Australian Bedding Stewardship Council (ABSC).
When you purchase your new mattress from a participating Snooze store, you are contributing towards the ABCS’s mission of creating a more sustainable mattress industry.
The ABSC is researching future solutions to ensure unwanted mattresses are treated as a valuable resource and not landfill that harms the environment.
At Snooze, we’re committed to ensuring our industry becomes more environmentally sustainable, so we can all sleep better at night, knowing we are making a positive contribution towards our planet’s future.

Snooze is proud to be the first in the bedding category to become a Sustainable Choice Member. Sustainable Choice is a public database where brands, like ours, share their sustainability actions and impact, and conscious consumers make informed choices.
Our story, whilst only at the beginning, can be found at SustainabilityTracker.com which is the digital home of brand sustainability information.
Snooze prohibits the use of modern day slavery and human trafficking in our operation and supply chain.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet and work and pay our respect to Elders past, present and future.
