If you are careful to chose clothes that are made ethically and organically, did you realise that you can also sleep on organic and ethically produced sheets, duvets, duvet covers, pillowcases and blankets? You also have a choice of organic fibres along with the better-known cotton you can have linen, bamboo, silk and wool.
Then you can sleep easy knowing that your bedding is as environmentally friendly as your wardrobe and your food. Organic bedding is also very good for people with skin allergies and sensitivities such as eczema and psoriasis, as it is not treated with any of the chemicals which are used to make sheets "easy iron" or "easy care".
