Although our best intentions are to approach every day as Earth Day, sometimes we need a reminder (and a little green-guidance) in order to lead more eco-conscious lives. So, in honor of today's celebration supporting worldwide environmental protection, we're tackling an at-home sustainability step that's easy enough to practice in your sleep. It all starts with waking up and making a more sustainable bed.
Ahead we've rounded up ten sustainable companies that are redefining our concept of what trendy bedding looks and feels like — from the softest sheet sets made with chemical and cruelty-free manufacturing to partially biodegradable-fill comforters, certified-organic mattresses, fair-trade pillows, and more. The rise in direct-to-consumer bedding brands not only translates to higher quality goods for fairer prices but also to higher quality goods made with fairer environmental practices. In addition to premium eco-friendly products, many of these companies also partner with environmental-protection groups to promote social action too; whether it's planting a tree per purchase, exploring alternative energy options, practicing people-first employee ethics and equal pay, or even just minimizing water consumption.
Scroll on to take a small step towards a more sustainable life simply by making your bed.
