Sustainable and Eco Friendly Bedding
Is there anything cozier than a comfy bed? How about a bed topped with the best eco friendly bedding?!
And is there anything more annoying than counting sheep? How about counting environmental and social woes?! That’s just a straight nightmare.
Thankfully, we can all sleep sound tonight knowing there are sustainable bedding brands trying to change this.

So, take a shower, brush your teeth, get your ethical pajamas on, and snuggle up for world’s sleepiest sustainable bedding around.
About Sleep & Beyond
Founded by the Sardor family, Sleep & Beyond is a third generation family-owned bedding manufacturer. Since 1992, they’ve helped tens of thousands of people get the best shut eye—all with the help of organic and natural cotton and wool, both of which you’ll find in their eco friendly bedding sets.
When it comes to bedding, Sleep & Beyond has everything. Like sustainable comforters, pillows, mattress protectors, toppers, sheets, and pads.
While they only come in white and ivory, a variety of sizes are available: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king, split king, and split California king.
This is also another affordable sustainable bedding option for those on a budget.
Sleep & Beyond’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices
Their eco friendly white sheets are made with either 100% GOTS and USDA-certified organic cotton or 100% OEKO Tex-certified natural cotton. In their comforters, they use either Woolmark-certified organic merino wool or natural merino wool. We’d recommend opting for the organic versions.
Supply chain & labor practices
Sleep & Beyond is passionate about women’s empowerment. While they claim to rely on their expertise and skills, their website leaves us wondering how exactly they go about empowering women in their production areas. We’ll be reaching out to learn more about this.
They do, however, pay fair wages, have a no-tolerance policy of child labor, and support local economies around the world. They also detail which of their four factories produce each product, as well as which factories are certified Fair Trade.
Green business practices
IFrom using 100% solar power at one of their ‘gardens’ (factories), to reusing every left-over raw material and shipping in reusable organic cotton bags, it’s clear they’re taking steps to becoming more sustainable.
Community & charitable giving
Sleep & Beyond partners with two anti-human trafficking organizations: Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA) and Global Initiative to Free Trafficking Victims (GIFT).
