What is ethical bedding?
Simply, ethical bedding is the best for content and healthy sleep.
It is earth friendly, animal friendly and most of all sleep friendly. There is nothing quite like getting into clean organic bedding, cuddle your pillow and indulge in the moment!
For that peaceful night sleep we all crave, choose bedding that has come from ethical and sustainable sources. When you buy luxury ethical bedding you know the people making it has been paid and treated fairly and the materials the bedding is made from are kind to your skin and kind to the planet.
Why choose organic bedding?
Organic bedding is a healthier option to choose, it has no harmful chemicals, it is most definitely healthier for the planet. It takes less water to produce organic cotton compared to conventional fabrics. Organic cotton has not been treated with chemical full cleaners or toxic chemical pesticides that non-organic ‘fast fashion’ bedding is exposed to, these fabrics have dyes and inks that can contain heavy metals.
If you have sensitive skin, dyes and other chemicals may cause a skin rash or other reaction. These harmful chemicals also weaken the fabric resulting in a shorter life span, costing more to replace, producing more waste. Organic cotton is more comfortable and breathable compared to synthetic fabrics.
When you choose organic cotton bedding, you help greenhouse gases (organic farming creates 60% less of those than conventional). This then is helping to protect the health of soil around the world.
Healthy soil stores carbon dioxide, keeping it out of the atmosphere, and that stored carbon helps the soil retain moisture and nutrients. Fertile, carbon-rich soil helps more plants grow, and those plants, in turn, draw in more carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, continuing the beneficial cycle.
We know the positive impact choosing organic sheets have on the environment and our health, but it gets even better than that, did you know many farms rotate food crops with fibre plants? helping to support and sustain the organic farming of vegetables and grains. Simply by changing your sheets, you are helping to change the world.
