If you’re striving to be more eco-friendly in your everyday life, a natural place to start is in the home. Aside from more obvious changes like using eco-friendly cleaning supplies and being more mindful of waste, another step is to buy organic bedding. Since we spend so much time in our beds, it makes sense to seek out products that are free of chemicals and potentially harmful substances. But it’s not enough to just buy sheets (or any fabric) simply labeled “organic.” While the FDA regulates organic labeling on food, there are currently only voluntary certifications when it comes to textiles.
There is, however, a global certification you can look for. GOTS, or Global Organic Textile Standard, not only certifies manufacturers are using eco-friendly, sustainable techniques but also fair labor practices. While organic bedding tends to be more expensive, the trade-off is certainly worth it. Below, ten bedding sources that are, at a minimum, GOTS-certified.
