Why Tencel & Bamboo?
Sourcing cotton is typically a draining and wasteful process, needing 20,000 liters for just 2 pounds of cotton. With non-organic cotton sheets as the norm in many households, imagine the waste and water used for your king-sized bed alone! But there are sustainable (and even softer) alternatives: Tencel and bamboo.
Bamboo and Tencel (from eucalyptus) are both grown sustainably, without the use of pesticides or insecticides. Using just a fraction of the water needed for sourcing, these eco-friendly alternatives can thrive in areas not typically suited for agriculture. Not only are they porous and hypoallergenic, but they are also antibacterial, moisture wicking, and some of the softest fibers around.
We’ve found 7 bamboo and Tencel sheets that are as eco-friendly as they are luxurious. You’ll never sleep the same again. If you're looking to upgrade your whole sleep situation, check out our guide to natural and eco-friendly mattresses!
