Sustainable bedding

When it comes to bedding, the sustainability factor is and should be a major consideration in the decision-making process. Cotton dominates the bedding market despite being one of the world's worst polluters. The waste water from cotton extraction and production contains toxic dyes, chlorine, and pesticides used to process the crop into fibre. Cotton is one of the most popular fabrics in the world, but it is also the most toxic crop in production because it is sprayed with the most chemicals. Therefore the hunt for sustainable cotton and its methods should be a great factor when browsing for your next duvet cover.  

Here at The Fine Bedding Company we understand these complications and what that entails for being a cotton producer. Pioneering premium sleep since 1912 we’ve been on a life's mission to obtain the most sustainable bedding possible. Making sustainable sleep, for you and the planet. Our 100% recycled duvet was the first to market, there’s always been a cleverness behind our comfort. 100% of our manmade fibres are from recycled sources, and whilst our customers sleep with our Fine Bedding we can assure them that 100% of the energy produced from our eco factory in Estonia came from renewable sources and created zero waste.

The Most Sustainable Bedding Material? 

Aside from Cotton, there are numerous other materials in the bedding world that their extraction is less damaging to the environment. Recycled materials for instance the Linen Collection for the Night Owl Coverless Duvet not only provides a luxurious fabric but is made from recycled polyester made from old plastic bottles. Our Night Owl has 100% recycled Smartfil® filing and due to its coverless appeal it eliminates the idea of needing a duvet cover altogether. The most sustainable duvet cover? Is essentially not to use any - right? Well yes, The Night Owl Coverless Duvet range ensures just that. Whilst providing it’s easy home wash capabilities as well as it’s fast drying ability and recycled filling available also in a Pure Cotton Collection made from 100% pure BCI cotton fabric. It revolutionises bedding and eliminates the need for a duvet cover, instead just has a duvet that’s soft, uses sustainably sourced cotton, convenient and stylish. Making it the ideal sustainable bedding.
