So you've stocked up on sustainable clothing and freshened up your sneaker collection with eco-friendly kicks, but have you thought about extending this environmentally-minded approach to your sheets and duvet? Sustainable bedding is on its way to becoming the new normal, thanks to an ever-increasing number of conscious bedding brands that are raising the standard and taking their environmental and social commitments seriously. We've rounded up a few of our favourites below, so you can rest easy knowing that you're taking positive steps to living a more sustainable lifestyle.
Undercover Living is paving the way for eco-friendly bedding with its use of sustainable fabrics – Tencel, a revolutionary botanical yarn, and organic cotton. The result is chemical-free, breathable and temperature-regulating bedding that's guaranteed to give you a better night's sleep.
Piglet has become renowned for its masterful use of linen, an exceptionally soft fabric that's perfect for every season – crisp and cool in summer and warm and cosy in winter. Unlike so many contemporary materials, the production of linen is very sustainable as every part of the flax plant can be used. It is a rotation crop, farmed naturally in small batches.
House Babylon prides itself on its use of long-staple Egyptian cotton threads. Hand-picked and free of harmful chemicals, the fabric is made to last. The label's pillows and duvets are made using cool, lightweight duck down and feathers that are EDFA (European Down and Feather Association) certified, so you can be confident in their quality and ethical standard. Plus, everything comes wrapped in biodegradable packaging.
Beddable uses a direct-to-consumer model, meaning it controls every stage of the production and shipping process. It only partners with OEKO-TEX certified manufacturers that have a track record of quality craftsmanship and commitment to sustainability.
