Tired of going through bed sheets or can't stand the fact you are possibly sleeping on a ton of chemicals? Yeah, I've been there. I figured this list would be useful to many of you since we do spend about a third of our life sleeping! It's important we choose the right bedding that won't compromise our health or the planet's.

Jefferson Lane

Sustainable Organic Bedding At A Truly Fair Price

The creators of Jefferson Lane are parents. They understand the home should be a safe place free of harmful chemicals and toxins. When you spend 7+ hours in bed {or me, who likes a good 9+ hours}, it's so important to know what you're surrounding yourself with through the night. Not only does conventional cotton have a toll on your health, but it's unsafe for the farmers and terrible for the environment. Therefore, Jefferson Lane only uses 100% organic cotton in their sheets. Even the dyes are eco-friendly! For those who love classic colors, affordable luxury & a lustrous sateen weave, these sheets are for you.

Living Fresh

Bringing The Luxurious Hotel Slumber To The Comfort Of Your Own Home

Living Fresh has blended Tencel+Plus™ Lyocell eucalyptus and cotton for their botanical bedding. This is the perfect recipe for comfort, softness and sustainability. The combination of these two require less pressing during maintenance and only 1 non-toxic chemical to process {unlike bamboo which requires 16 different toxic chemicals to produce into a fiber - it's great for toothbrushes and other home goods, but not so much for textiles!}. Some cool facts about the eucalyptus tree: it requires no irrigation, farming, or pesticides and grows to maturity at about 10 years. Then only 10% is cut down while be replanted.
