So you’ve slathered on the very best facial moisturizers, Rose waters, body butter and healthy emollients you could get your hands on. You’ve consciously fine-tuned your skincare regime to new heights. Now, are you going to rest this beloved skin on polyester sheets? No way!
Not when there is an abundance of sustainable bed sheets at your disposal. You need bedding that will allow your skin to breathe, not deplete it of moisture. This is what organic bedding does to support your health and wellness.
If in doubt about the certification of any organic bedding, look for GOTS, or Global Organic Textile Standard on the label. This certifies producers are only using sustainable practices and techniques and are Eco-friendly in their approach and production practices.
Another label to keep in mind is the OEKO-TEX registered trademark, certifying the human ecological, social and environmental safety of textile products in all stages of production (raw materials, fabrics, yarns, and fibers) along the textiles manufacturing chain.
