Soft Landing Product Stewardship Mattress Life Cycle




















Committee Members

Product Stewardship

Soft Landing has been developing a mattress product stewardship scheme, alongside industry, since 2014. The Soft Landing Scheme is designed to increase resource recovery and the diversion of waste from landfill in order to minimise the environmental, health and safety impacts of end of life mattresses.

As a not-for-profit social enterprise, the Soft Landing Scheme prioritises the creation of employment opportunities for people who have experienced barriers to employment, and in doing so, benefits the economic health and wellbeing of the community as a whole.

Soft Landing has worked with industry leaders A.Prince Consulting on the governance and modelling of the scheme, and in July 2016 partnered with TIC Mattress Recycling in Sydney and Melbourne to integrate world’s leading technology and logistics into our highest density cities.

The Inaugural Executive Committee meeting was held in June 2016.
