The ultimate self-care routine should include buying yourself eco-luxe bed sheets that seem to cuddle you right back. Nothing rejuvenates the mind and body better than a restful night’s sleep on soft, comfy, sustainable sheets. If you’ve had trouble falling asleep, invest in organic cotton or bamboo sheets and you’ll be on cloud nine quicker than you can count sheep.
Here are some eco-friendly bedding brands producing silky smooth bed sheets and bed linen that you’ll love so much, you’ll find it hard to get out of bed!
1. SOL Organics
SOL Organics is a US-based company that creates the most luxurious certified bed sheets that it’s hard to believe how affordable they are when you compare its prices to other eco-luxe brands, and the fact that the brand doesn’t compromise on the important things: Fair-Trade certified, 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton and non-GMO. SOL Organics ensures its workers are paid fair living wages and aren’t exposed to toxic chemicals. If you make a purchase, the brand also donates to charities on your behalf. We’re obsessed with this brand not only because it have high ethical and sustainable standards, but the packaging is recyclable and reusable, and from experience, these sheets are absolutely divine. Get cosy and you’ll never want to leave the bed.

Australian brand ettitude produces the softest, silkiest bed sheets made of 100% organic bamboo lyocell, an eco-friendly fabric that uses one-tenth of the water needed to grow conventional cotton. Although organic bamboo fabric doesn’t sit at the top of sustainability scale (that would be reserved for hemp, but hemp doesn’t have the soft qualities most look for in bed sheets) ettitude’s fabric is high-quality and is Oeko-Tex® certified which means its produced in an innovative closed-loop system that recycles and reuses water and non-toxic solvents. Add to that bamboo plant grows quickly, is drought and pest resistant and consumes way less water than organic cotton and ettitude knows exactly what they’re doing on the sustainability front after all!
These sheets are extremely breathable, soft to the touch due to its 300 thread count (equivalent to 1000 thread count in cotton) and so comfy that you’ll find yourself lying in bed every spare moment you get!
