All Hilding beds meet Nordic Ecolabel's criteria
2013-01-24 [Press release]
In October 2012, Hilding Anders' quality brand Hilding met the Nordic Ecolabel's criteria for seven beds and five mattress pads. Today, Hilding has succeeded in obtaining approval for all of its beds, including adjustable models, and all of its mattress pads.
The Nordic Ecolabel has tightened its criteria for furniture and fittings that include beds. Among other things, the ecolabel places strict demands on chemicals used in production. For example, the limits for formal-dehyde have been halved and there are stricter demands that any timber used must come from certified forests. When beds are tested for the Nordic Ecolabel, sustain-ability is also examined.
“Choosing a bed with the Nordic Ecolabel means making a responsible choice for health and the environment. It's really satisfying that a leading Swedish bed brand can satisfy our criteria and that together we are encouraging sustainable consumption,” says Lukas Sjölén, Environment Officer at Miljömärkning Sverige AB.
