How is the Ecosa Bed Base Eco-Friendly?

May 3, 2023   By Clarisa Mcdonald

When deciding on a bed base, you are choosing a feature piece that will set the style and tone of your bedroom. Picking a bed base can be a big decision because you want something that is stylish and made to last, given that you would be using it every day.

Something that many people overlook is the environmental impact of the bed base they choose to purchase. Eco-friendly is not always the first thing that comes to mind when shopping for a bed base.

We all have a role to play in being environmentally conscious, and with many eco-friendly options in the market, it’s easier than ever to make responsible choices. Bedroom furniture has begun to feature more eco-friendly options, such as mattresses, pillows and bedding. By choosing these options, you are making small but important changes towards offsetting your carbon footprint.

Picking an eco-friendly bed base adds to the little things that can sum up to a big difference in our small ways to save the planet.

How Can a Bed Base Be Eco-Friendly?

No glue

A bed base that requires glue or other adhesives to be assembled means that there are plenty of chemicals that are going to be in your bedroom.

Opting for a bed that can easily be assembled without using any adhesives spares you from breathing in the fumes emitted from the adhesive materials.

The Ecosa Timber Bed Base is assembled without using any glue or adhesive to set its parts in place.

Lasts a Lifetime

You want to buy a bed base that will stay with you for a very long time. Buying a cheap bed base that will only last a couple of years is wasteful and not an environmentally conscious choice.

For a bed base to be long-lasting, it needs to be built from sturdy materials that can truly stand the test of time, and for ages, the sturdiest bed bases would typically be made to order and less accessible for the budget-conscious market

The Ecosa Bed Base is built from American Ash Timber, a solid wood known for its strength, durability, hardness and shock resistance. American Ash Timber is the same material used for making baseball bats. Those things can take a beating, so you know your bed base is made from the best.

The Timber Bed Base also has a metal internal support frame which adds strength and rigidity to the wood, making it long-lasting- it also features a clean, simple, stylish look that is timeless, so no need to keep up with the latest trends.

Sustainable Sources

We now know that hardwood makes for the sturdiest bed frames, but you can’t just cut up any tree, make it a bed, and call it a day.

Illegal logging is easily the most significant cause of deforestation, and we all know how bad that is for our environment. Likewise, using solid timber from uncertified forests also hampers on the sustainability of farming the materials.

Ecosa only sources its ash timbers from certified sustainable forests where trees are properly farmed and managed, so forests are renewed and can continue to survive.

Easy Assembly/Disassembly

You might wonder how the way a bed base is assembled can make it eco-friendly. As with any eco journey, it’s the small changes that add up.

Having a bed that you can quickly assemble on your own saves you from having to call a tradie to come over and build your bed for you.

With the simple assembly of the Ecosa Bed Base, you also save yourself a trip to the hardware store to get tools and adhesives, which will probably go unused after the project and then sit in storage going to waste.

Eco-Friendly Finish

Ecosa bed bases are finished with an eco-friendly Osmo Oil that is derived from natural vegetable oils and waxes.

The oil not only gives the Ecosa bed base a polished look but the wood grains are also protected down to their deepest layers, helping the wood last much longer

Ecosa is Carbon Neutral

You read that right. Ecosa is a carbon-neutral mattress and sleep solutions company. Ecosa throughout the years has accumulated a total of 23 million kilograms of carbon offset which promotes its drive for sustainability and finding eco-friendly solutions.

Final Thoughts

Living an eco-friendly life is becoming more popular as we start to understand how our choices can impact the environment. If you’re looking for a new bed base, then the Ecosa Timber and Zen Bed Base are the choices for you, and you can rest assured knowing that you’ve made a good choice. 


What other timber furniture can you pair with the Ecosa Bed Base?

It’s hard to not fall in love with the minimalist and timeless look of timber furniture, that’s why the Ecosa Bed Base is best paired with either the Capsule Bedside Table which is also made of American Ash Timber and the Urban Bedside Table, available in ash and walnut colours.

What are the available sizes of the Ecosa Bed Base?

You’re in luck, the Ecosa Bed Base is offered in all of the most common bed sizes. It’s available as a single bed and as a king single for the taller folks. You can also get the bed base as a double, queen size, king size, or even a super king. No matter the size you need, there’s a high-quality bed base just for you!

What is included with the Ecosa Bed Base?

The Ecosa Bed Base comes with adjustable feet to compensate for uneven floors, lightweight and shock-resistant slats, and a metal internal support frame. No tools are included in the package since there are no tools required for the assembly.

Can I get a bed base without a headboard?

You can get it with or without one.

Some bedrooms are designed with a back wall that serves as a headboard and some prefer a Japanese-style bed without one – if that’s your case, then the Zen Bed Base is perfect for you. If you prefer one with a headboard (plus a hidden compartment behind it), then the Rise Bedframe is the perfect choice

How long is the Ecosa Bed Base warranty?

Both wood bed frames offered come with a 5-year warranty.
