The mould is being made!
10 months ago – Thu, Mar 25, 2021 at 09:17:39 PM

Hey Blisstilers!! 

I hope all of you have been having a fantastic time 😊. 

We're definitely having a blast at preparing an exceptional product, it's really exciting seeing it all come together: from dream to reality 🚀🚀🚀.

The Essential Info 

We’re on track with our programme! 💪

  • The mould is underway and should be ready in about 2.5 weeks 🥳🥳.  Once done, we’ll be testing different foam densities to see which one is best suited for SleepMuffs.
  • Two serious contenders for SleepMuffs’ cover have been found 🤓🧵 aka sewing companies. We’re waiting on getting the foam density right before choosing; they need the product finished to figure out how to design the pattern. This may take a bit of time but has been planned for! 
  • Printed sample fabrics have been received 🌫️☁️🌌🌊. They require some tweaking to get the colour right, however the graphic and details are great! We’re closely working with our fabric supplier to get it perfect! 🤓
  • Sample packaging has been received 📦. They’re simple, strong and light and don’t use any excess cardboard. They will be made in Australia by a manufacturer who is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) 🌴🌳. Once we’ve finalised dimensions and cardboard type we’ll get started on the artwork 🎨.
  • Making deliveries 100% Carbon Neutral: we’re discussing with a few Carbon Offset companies to see the type and quality of projects they're working on. This will enable us to understand the projects that are worth investing in to ultimately make the delivery of SleepMuffs 100% Carbon Neutral. However, we're not going to stop there! We're also looking at offsetting our freight and operational emissions too! Exciting stuff 🍃🌏😇. 

The details: understanding our desire for sustainability! 

As a new company it is important to set up a sustainable supply chain and a sustainable product. When it comes products it's all about waste which is Reducing, Reusing and Recycling. Here's a small pyramid to show what we're doing:

In sum this what we'll be using/doing:

For our product:

  • Organically grown bamboo and recycled polyester for our covers both have a OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 Certification ✅.
  • Recycled ABS plastic for the acoustic shells✅.
  • Provide a re-usable travel bag to protect your SleepMuffs and make them last longer ✅!

For our packaging:

  • FSC certified cardboard for our boxes. These boxes will be light, therefore using less product and less fuel when transported ✅.
  • Eliminate soft plastics - pretty standard 😊 ✅.
  • Minimal marketing material (if any) - all to be printed on recycled paper  ✅.

For our carbon emissions:

  • Offsetting carbon emissions of all deliveries, freight and office operations by purchasing top quality carbon offsets ✅.

What we’ll be working on in the future: 

Working with our foam manufacturer to create a more sustainable foam. This is a hard one as foam is made from two liquids, polyol and isocyanate, which react when mixed to create soft and spongy product, like in the gif below. So bringing it back to a state where it can be used in a mould is tough - but not impossible! 

In the near future we'll be giving the option to our customers to plant a tree for a small price at checkout! This is one of my favourite just because it’s so simple and tangible for us as human beings 🙃🌴. 

Further down the line we hope to be able offer a take back and recycle scheme to close the loop ♻️!

All in all we're trying very hard to make a great, sustainable product we can be proud of 🤓🍃!

Till next time!! Love you all!🚀🚀

🎨 Available colours are here - Surveys pushed to January! 🎨
about 1 year ago – Sat, Dec 19, 2020 at 01:35:50 AM

Hello fellow Sleep Enthusiasts! 😴

We have some exciting news!! You’ll soonish be able to choose the colour of your SleepMuffs through our BackerKit surveys 📋.

The less exciting news is that we’re still waiting on Kickstarter to send us the final list of backers as some have dropped out last minute due to credit card issues 🙄.

Additionally, since we're so close to the holiday season we have a feeling that a lot of people will be busy doing other stuff 🎄🕺💃.  

These two factors combined has pushed us to set the release dates of the survey to the 👉 beginning of January 👈.

In the survey, we'll also be asking a few research questions 🔎 on how you plan to use your SleepMuffs, if you live in noisy areas and the type of work you do. 

If you prefer not to answer the research questions you are more than welcome to skip them ⏩! But please know that these answers really help us better understand your needs, ultimately allowing us to create better products 👌.

All the answers to the research questions will be analysed anonymously 🙈🙉🙊.

In the meantime here are the colours you will be able to choose from 🎨

For those who got an Early Bird ++, you'll be able to choose the colour of your extra cover too 🙌. 

The extra covers will be available to all backers as add-ons 💪.

Here are some more add-ons we'll be including as stretch goals 🥳🥳.

Note: For a stretch goal to be unlocked, 300 pre-orders are required.

We'll send out an update before sending out the surveys, so we're sure you'll catch it 👍.

In the meantime, we hope you all have an amazing holiday season 🎁🎅🎄!! 

Till next time!! Love you all!🚀🚀
