Are you careful to chose clothes that are made ethically and organically? If so, why not also sleep on organic and ethically traded sheets, duvets, duvet covers, pillowcases and blankets.
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".
