the best eco-friendly bedding - MettaLife

You may be thinking…. what actually is eco-friendly bedding?

Simply, it is earth friendly, animal friendly, sleep friendly and the best eco-friendly bedding! There is nothing quite like getting into clean organic bedding, cuddle your pillow and indulge in the moment! If you want a peaceful night sleep, you will want to make sure all your bedding that you snuggle into has come from ethical and sustainable sources. When you buy eco-friendly and 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 without harmful chemicals, it is most definitely healthier for the planet. It takes less water to produce organic cotton compared to conventional fabrics. Organic cotton is not treated with the toxic chemical pesticides or harsh chemical cleaners and fabric treatments that conventional bedding is exposed to. Nonorganic sheets are dyed with inks and dyes 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 them and producing more waste. Organic cotton is more comfortable and breathable compared to synthetic fabrics.

By choosing organic sheets, you are reducing the output of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (organic farming creates 60% less of those than conventional). You are also 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.

The positive impact of choosing organic sheets extends beyond the fiber they are from. Many farms rotate fiber plants with food crops, so by choosing organic sheets, you are helping to support and sustain the organic farming of vegetables and grains too. By simply changing your sheets, you are helping to change the world. Here is our favourite eco-friendly bedding on MettaLife – all organic, vegan and super comfy.
