Sleep Easy in Our 11 Favourite Sustainable Bedding Brands

Did you know humans spend an average of 33 years in bed? That’s over a third of our entire lifetime curled up under the covers. And while sleep and relaxation are crucial for a well-functioning body and mind, beds and bedding are notorious for harbouring more bacteria than we care to admit. Cheap bedding is also often made with unsustainable and unhealthy fabrics like polyester and conventional cotton. Here’s why ethical and sustainable bedding is worth the investment, and our favourite brands to get it from.

The benefits of buying sustainable bedding

Good quality quilt covers and sheets are an investment, and most people want to make sure their new sets will be long lasting and comfortable. Conscious consumers are also becoming more aware of the fabrics they put on their skin and the dangers of overexposure to synthetic or chemical-laden fabrics. The same goes for the people along the supply chain who shouldn’t have to suffer from harmful exposure or unlivable wages for our bedtime routine.

Sustainable bedding is usually made with high-quality, organic, and plant-based fabrics that are better for your body and the planet. And by supporting ethical brands that empower makers, you can rest assured that those behind the bedding are sleeping more comfortably at night by working with non-toxic fabrics and receiving fair wages. It’s a win-win-win.

Briefly back to those germs: aside from the fact that most of us with regular access to a washing machine should be washing our bedding a lot more frequently than we currently do, another major benefit of investing in bedding materials like linen is that they are often hypoallergenic and temperature regulating. Bonus, they get softer with every wash. Happy skin, happy life—that’s the expression, right?

Without further ado, here are the 11 best eco bedding brands we found from around the world that are “Good” or “Great” for people, the planet, animals, and of course, you. Sweet dreams!
