Competitive Pricing

Environmentally responsible manufacturing is how we do business

More and more consumers demand that the companies they do business with are socially and environmentally responsible.

As a supplier of Joyce’s GECA certified products you will be an industry leader in sustainability. This will give you a competitive edge over product suppliers who have failed to seek these higher standards.

Environmentally certified

We use GECA certified foam.

GECA certification gives consumers confidence that products with the GECA stamp of approval comply with the rigorous standards under ISO 14024 principles for global best practice in eco-labelling.

Good Environment Choice Australia (GECA) is an independent, non-profit organisation which exists to help consumers make better environmental choices.

Scrap Utilisation

All our scrap is re-used.

As part of our sustainability plan we re-use all our scrap foam and fabric. Our foam off-cuts will be either crumbed for other products or put through the reconstitution process to be developed into carpet underlay.
