World Health Day - 7th April

World Health Day - 7th April

2022’s World Health Day focuses on the idea of “Our Planet, Our Health”

Over 90% of people breathe unhealthy air resulting from burning of fossil fuels. Pollution and plastics are found at the bottom of the oceans, up mountains, and have made their way into our food chain to such an extent that microplastics have been found in bloodstreams of members of the public. WHO estimates that more than 13 million deaths around the world each year are due to easily avoidable environmental causes.

The aims of World Health Day are broad but the hope is that certain goals can be achieved by working together. According to WHO’s website, World Health Day’s priorities are:

  • To improve understanding of universal health coverage and the importance of primary health care as its foundation’.
  • ‘To spur action from individuals, policy-makers and health-care workers to make universal health care a reality for everyone’.
  • ‘Everyone should have the information and services they need to take care of their own health and the health of their families’.
  • ‘Skilled health workers providing quality, people-centred care; policy-makers committed to investing in primary health care’.
  • WHO will focus global attention on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy. Dormeo understands the need for a greener, more sustainable future. Since we were founded, we have been making sure we are as green as we can be.

    Each of our memory foam beds is made from recycled materials. When you return a mattress, obviously we can’t re-sell it (yuck) so we deconstruct the mattress and break down the materials and reuse them in other mattresses. This makes for less waste from what is usually quite a wasteful item when thrown away.

    Because of the breathability of the memory foam we provide using the Octaspring technology, we use around 30% less material in our mattresses compared to our competitors. So, not only do we use recycled materials, we use less materials in each of our memory foam mattress.

    Our memory foam mattresses are specially designed to cradle your body while you sleep, ensuring your joints and muscles are properly supported, as good health for your back is incredibly important for your overall wellbeing. We also have a special lines of mattresses infused with Aloe Vera and Silver for those who suffer from allergies and find sleep difficult because of these allergies.
