Elevate Your Bedroom With These 6 Sustainable Bedding Brands
We all need to slow down. Doing so encourages us to move with more mindful intentions and therefore make better choices…Like choosing to buy better and buy less or practising more self-care and looking after our mental and physical well-being.
And we get it, life moves at a million miles an hour, so where can we begin to slow down? Well, we can start by looking at our bedtime routine.
Now, when we say your bedtime routine, we don’t mean skincare and coming off your phone at night (although this is a good practice!). We mean where we spend a large portion of our lives; our beds.
A good night’s rest can help set you up for a good day, a day where you take time to nourish your mind, body and soul and consider the world around you.
Your sleep environment plays a huge role in the quality of your sleep you get. Your room should be dark, not too hot or too cold, quiet and most importantly comfortable. Heavy emphasis on comfort!
Nothing beats the feeling of sinking into your bed and sleeping on fresh bedding at the end of a long day, so we’ve rounded six brands that are sure to elevate your bedroom and give that much-needed restorative rest…
Goss and Genus are the home of organic, fairtrade-produced bed linens. Sustainability isn’t a trend for them but the thread that runs through the core of their brand. They’re advocates for ethically made, high-quality products and slow living. All of their products are designed here in the UK and Fairtrade produced in India.
Think soft-buttery sheets made from 100% GOTS organic cotton. Their Relaxed Percale collection is woven from the finest long-staple organic cotton to a percale finish for a matte and relaxed look and comes in a subtle colour palette of oatmeal, pink and white.
While their Classic collection is woven to a sateen finish for a silky softness and a smoother feel, creating a calming oasis in a palette of blue, white and grey.
All products are sold in a handy matching dust bag.
Leisurely’s mission is simple: to produce the softest sheets, slow down consumption, produce sustainably and protect the planet! They were tired of hustle culture and overconsumption they decided to do things differently.
The result? A collection of stunning duvet covers, fitted sheets and pillowcases crafted from Tencel™. Tencel is luxuriously soft, anti-bacterial and breathable, it’s good for the planet and gentle on your skin.
Choose from separate pieces, duvet cover and pillowcase bundles or complete bedding sets in a vibrant collection of dark teal, blush, lilac, white and pistachio.
Undercover believes that your bed is a place of sanctuary, a place to escape to, to relax, restore and revive your body and soul. And we couldn’t agree more.
Their super soft, high quality and contemporary bedding is crafted from Tencel™ and GOTS organic cotton.
Undercover is the perfect brand to mix and match. Choose from block colours such as sand, light grey, olive green and pink or bold prints in spotty grey, geometric grey or terracotta lines.
You can also purchase laundry care products, hand soaps and blankets too.
Earth Kind is committed to creating a better tomorrow. They’re crafting high-quality bedding to make it that little bit easier to choose sustainable products.
Earth Kind uses a mixture of recycled feathers, down and synthetics. They’re diverting materials away from landfill and bringing you soft, sumptuous duvets and pillows for a cosy and a super comfortable sleep.
Dip and Doze believe that beautifully made, indulgent products shouldn’t be kept for special occasions, they should be loved every day, year after year.
What they don’t believe in is using confusing marketing jargon and technical stuff like thread counts and length of yarn. They’re cutting out the middleman and selling directly to you. So forget seasonal collections, wholesale markups or large orders that result in waste. Expect a simplified buying process and high-quality and fairly priced pieces for your home and bedroom.
Choose from organic cotton or natural linen bed duvet sets, pillowcases and sheets.
Tekla is a Copenhagen-based brand born from a desire to bring modernity and freedom of expression to the homeware category. Their B Corp certification means they’re part of a global movement of people who are using business as a force for good.
Longevity and responsible production are favoured over rapid trend cycles. Tekla’s Percale bedding is designed to give you that freshly washed sheets feel every day. The lightweight cotton is finished in a stone wash for extra softness. You can select from block colours of red, subtle mint, sand beige and shaded yellow or bold stripes in pink, blue and dark reds.
