The Best Organic, Sustainable bed sheet brands for 2020

 

Organic, non-toxic sheets give you a better night’s sleep

And if they’re also fair trade and sustainably-made, they help you sleep better at night too (see what we did there? 😊 )

Check out the best brands for organic, sustainably-made bed sheets below—and make sure to catch the exclusive discount codes listed for some of the brands too!

 

 

Organic, fair trade, sustainably-sourced Italian Hemstitch sheets and pillow cases from Under the Canopy


There are a lot of reasons to look for organic sheets, especially if you have skin allergies or sensitive skin (or just prefer not to lay in toxins every night):

1. Way better for you and your skin
Holy cow, do you know what comes in some non-organic bedsheets?? Chemicals like AZO dyes, Alidicarb, Parathion, and--formaldehyde(!) Blech. These chemicals can cause skin irritation, and formaldehyde is a carcinogen linked to respiratory problems and lung cancer.
We spend about a third of our lives in our beds. Naturally hypoallergenic, organic bed sheets mean we're not spending all that time laying in toxins and provide the peace of mind of an all natural sleep.
2. Better for the planet
25% of all the pesticides used worldwide are used to grow cotton! That creates a lot of chemical runoff in our waterways. Organic cotton cuts out the use of these pesticides and also takes significantly less water to grow.
Sustainably-sourced bamboo is very soft, and soft on the environment. It's naturally pest-resistant so doesn't need pesticides, it easily regrows after harvesting without the need to replant, and requires very little water (be discerning though, as some bamboo products are not-so-sustainably sourcedyou can take a deeper dive on the environmental benefits of various eco-friendly products. All the bamboo products listed below are highly sustainable).
3. Better for other people
By now you’re probably all-too aware of how many products that wind up in our stores rely on global supply that keep people locked in poverty, working long hours in unsafe conditions, and/or may rely on trafficked or child labor.
Ethically-made products ensure that the people making them are paid well and work in safe conditions. To help ensure products are made ethically, look for fair trade or GOTS certified organic products, or shop on a trusted site that vets brands for social and environmental impact (oh y’know, like DoneGood… the website you’re on right now 😉).
So there are plenty of reasons to get organic sheets made in a natural, sustainable way.  And there are some really great brands making them—and making them really high-quality,  yet reasonably affordable too.
Here’s a profile of the best we’ve found.
