Using 100% natural or organic wool and cotton, many of Sleep & Beyond’s eco friendly cooling pillows are certified by GOTS, USDA, OEKO TEX-100, or Woolmark.
Everything is finished via GOTS-approved hand printing methods with heavy metal-free and AZO-free dyes.
Supply chain and labor practices
Sleep & Beyond has a no-tolerance policy when it comes to child labor and ensures fair wages for their workers. They place an emphasis on employing and empowering women in all of their production areas.
They’ve got factories located in England, Belgium, India, Pakistan, China, and Kyrgyzstan, some of which are fair trade. For all of which they publish which ones make which products
Green business practices
Operating under a zero waste philosophy (read more on what that is here), Sleep & Beyond really try to repurpose any material they can and minimize their company waste.
Packaging is a huge contributor to that, so they use reusable myMerino wool and organic cotton bags to wrap their products. For the outer packaging, they use phthalate-free and BPA-free PEVA #7 plastic (which is fully recyclable and one of the better types of plastic out there… low bar, but still).
Plus, their Indian ‘garden’ (aka factory) uses 100% solar power, which is something Sleep & Beyond hopes to scale up going forward.
Community and charitable giving
Sleep & Beyond regularly contributes support and donations to a few anti-human trafficking organizations. These include Global Initiative to Free Trafficking Victims (GIFT), Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA), and Teen Cancer America.
