We’ve got something exciting to tell you: we’ve joined forces with German-based Room in a Box to become the UK’s first and only supplier of their eco-friendly corrugated cardboard bed.
Made of 100% cardboard – 70% of which is from recycled materials, and 100% can be recycled in future – the minimalist-design bed boasts strong eco-credentials and is easy to assemble thanks to its concertina design. Plus, it’s available in four finishes – classic cardboard, white, black and petrol – and is vegan friendly.
To celebrate our new partnership, we’ve put together an eye-catching infographic which details 10 simple eco-friendly swaps to make in your bedroom. Check it out below, or find out more about the Room in a Box bed here.

Take a Step Towards a Greener Future
Gerald Dissen, Co-Founder of Room in a Box has said:
"We started ROOM IN A BOX in 2013 with the vision to create eco-friendly and super-portable furniture, and we’ve gone from strength to strength. Our customers love our sustainable corrugated cardboard furniture because it helps them live a low-emissions life, while also being extremely durable.
“We are very excited to work alongside Happy Beds as a partner and to be able to help British customers to live a more flexible and sustainable lifestyle.”
Joy Richards, Sleep Specialist here at Happy Beds, said:
“Our company ethos is “because everyone deserves a good night’s sleep” and that shouldn’t be any different for anyone looking for an eco-friendly alternative to a classic bed.
“With strong sustainability credentials and fair production, this Room in a Box bed has been hugely popular in mainland Europe, and we’re delighted that we could bring this product over the channel to help people in the UK soothe their eco-conscience and sleep that little bit more comfortably.
“For those who prefer a more traditional bed, we now also offer a mattress recycling scheme for much of the country.”
