Richmond, Va. – Inspired by emerging call for earth-friendly products, foam pillow and mattress cover producer Hudson Industries recently collaborated with major foam technology providers to come up with sustainable memory foam offerings.
The company’s new trademarked Polar Foam Cool Foam products will now be specially manufactured with two innovative eco-friendly technologies – one that replaces a significant amount of petrochemical-based polyol with natural, plant-based renewable materials and a second that allows for the recycling of this product.
This “Eco Foam” employs Bio-164, a 100% all natural proprietary blend of Magnoliopsida-class plant oils. This blend of plant oils is used to replace nearly 13% of the petroleum-based polyol that is used to produce this foam technology, according to the company.
