Eco-Friendliness in Bedding

We've provided information about mattresses, latex and otherwise, and many additionals. Shoulder sleeper pillows, adjustable bases, and sheets. But, it's important to know the environmental impact of all these items as well! After all, if you're investing in your future with your mattress, there's no reason to not follow the same route with the rest of your bedding!

From hemp to cotton, from linen to Tencel, from bamboo to wool, ensure the health of the planet, and your sleep, with these sustainable bedding materials.

Why choose sustainable, chemical-free, environmentally friendly bedding?

Because humans spend nearly a third of their lives in their beds! Would you want to spend 1/3 of your life breathing in chemicals and harming the planet? Clearly not!

There are many benefits to each, but we'll go through them one by one!

Starting off with a classic, hemp! While many people think hemp is related to marijuana, don't worry, there's no way these sheets can get you high!

Hemp is one of the best plants for the environment. Growing in only 4 months to 20 feet tall, and 9 feet of roots, hemp also removes more carbon than trees every year! Not to mention, the nutrients they add to the soil.

Compared to cotton, they require nearly 2/3rds less land and water, making them far less water-intensive, labor-intensive, and generally far better for the environment.

For those worrying about allergies and softness, worry not! Hemp is allergen-free, antibacterial, and super comfortable.

Hemp absorbs moisture, keeping you cool and dry as you sleep, allowing for uninterrupted nightly rest!

Hemp should definitely be on your list of sustainable bedding!

Next, organic cotton!

While cotton is less environmentally friendly than other materials, organic cotton uses nearly 75% less water irrigation than typical cotton! Not to mention, the lack of pesticides used, and therefore being brought into our home or running off into nearby rivers or lakes.

Being mainly rain-fed, organic cotton puts far less stress on local water sources.

Being pesticide-free benefits more than just the bugs!

Chemicals used in popular pesticides have been linked to cancer and respiratory issues.

Organic cotton is far more resilient and durable than typical cotton. Thanks to no chemicals weakening its fibers, organic cotton doesn't 'pill' as often. It results due to a surface defect made up of small fibers. They are the little balls of fabric that appear on your brand new sheets.

Not to mention, being hypoallergenic, free of harsh dyes. and generally better for the environment and for you!

Third, linen! No, we don't mean the old sheets in your grandmother's cabinet. While it is true linen is an ancient material, it's updated every year, coming out in new styles, and feels that appeal to the modern family!

Linen is made from flax, a plant that grows very quickly! While the best fibers are used for the sheets, seeds and other parts are crushed to make oil for all sorts of purposes! Not to mention, flax requires no irrigation, is biodegradable, and is a fast-growing, renewable resource!

Linen lasts longer than even cotton, as evidenced by the sheets in your grandma's cabinet.

Linen actually repels dirt, moisture, and is bacterial resistant! Not to mention, anti-allergenic.

Linen sheets are soft, comfortable, and breathable. At a fair price, there's no reason to not invest in yours and the future of the planet!

Finally, bamboo!

Bamboo sheets have been gaining popularity in the past years, and for good reason! Bamboo sheets are extremely soft and comfortable, are made from bamboo, one of the fastest-growing plants ever! Requiring no irrigation, pesticides, or fertilizer, bamboo is one of the most sustainably grown things out there!

Both breathable, soft, and durable, bamboo sheets come in a variety of colors and types, including percale, sateen, and twill!

All in all, don't stop your eco-friendly lifestyle at the mattress! Support other businesses that are working hard to save the planet!
