By Ashemiriogwa Emmanuel
Mouka Limited, manufacturers of household and industrial foam products in Nigeria, has demonstrated its commitment to promoting a sustainable environment with the launching of its new eco-friendly mattress called Eco-Comfy.
According to Mouka’s Head of Marketing, Mr Tolu Olanipekun, the Eco-Comfy fibre mattress is made of 100 per cent recyclable polyester fibre which allows for the conversion of old mattresses into other valuable items to cut down on environmental pollution.
Commenting at the launch of the product, he said, “Eco-Comfy is eco-friendly as it is made of 100 per cent recyclable polyester fibre, which means an old mattress can be converted into other valuable products rather than ending up in a landfill, thereby causing pollution of the environment.”
In addition, the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Raymond Murphy, pointed out that Mouka was continuously looking for ways to contribute to a safer environment by cutting down waste in its operations which has resulted in numerous awards to date.
Meanwhile, the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of the company, Mr Dimeji Osingunwa, encouraged institutions such as schools and camps that desire a low-cost yet durable mattress to purchase the new Mouka Eco-Comfy.
The Mouka CCO added that the new mattress was targeted at consumers who want to enjoy quality sleep at a very pocket-friendly price in Nigeria.
Mouka Limited manufactures mattresses, pillows, and other bedding products. The company has production facilities in Lagos, Benin, and Kaduna, which offers polyurethane-based products in the household and industrial foam market in Nigeria and the African sub-region.
