A Guide For Linens And Clean Materials

A Guide For Linens And Clean Materials

Sustainability is important in all aspects of our lives, including when we sleep. Choosing the right linens and materials for your bed can not only make a difference for the environment, but it can also improve the quality of your sleep. 

Here are some tips to start being sustainable while sleeping:

1. Choose natural materials. 

Natural materials like organic cotton, linen, and wool are more sustainable options for bedding because they are biodegradable and made from renewable resources. Instead, synthetic materials like polyester and nylon are made from non-renewable resources that take longer to break down in landfills and can release chemicals harmful to your health. Natural materials are also recommended for people with sensitive skin and prone to allergies. 

2. Look for organic, ethical, or fair trade options. 

While conventional cotton is eco friendlier than synthetic fibers, organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, making it better for the environment and for the people who grow it. Purchasing from ethically certified brands provides extra assurance about the welfare of the animal and the environment where they are living.  Fair trade products are made by workers who are paid fair wages and work in safe conditions. Always make sure to look for the brands’ certifications such as Certified Humane® and\or fair trade certified.

3. Consider the washing process. 

Linens and bedding should be washed frequently to keep them clean and fresh, but this can have an environmental impact. Choose a laundry detergent that is biodegradable and safe for the environment, and try to wash your linens in cold water to save energy.

4. Invest in high-quality products. 

While it may be tempting to buy cheap, low-quality bedding, these products are often made with synthetic materials and are not made to last. Investing in high-quality, natural materials will not only be better for the environment, but it will also save you money in the long run as you won't need to replace them as often.

By following these tips, you can be sustainable while sleeping and help protect the environment while still getting a good night's rest.
