Bright, white cotton sheets feel natural, but conventional cotton production uses 24% of the world’s chemical pesticides and fertilizers, yet occupies only 3% of the world’s farmland. Much of the bedding available from major retailers is made from polyester, and along with permanent-press sheets is often treated with formaldehyde. Yuck! So what are “Nature Sheets”?
100% viscose from Bamboo and organic cotton sheet sets Nature Sheets”. They are chemical free, pesticide free and made from our environments sustainable source! It’s the new green bedding on the linens block. You’ll love this luxury bamboo bedding.
Highly absorbent: Bamboo sheets can absorb moisture up to 300% their weight, which makes them three times more absorbent than cotton. Bamboo actually wicks away moisture so that you don’t feel it on your skin so that you can sleep more comfortably regardless of the temperature. That means on those nights that are a little too hot, you don’t have to worry about suffering with the sweats.
Durable: Though cotton sheets will last a little while if taken care of, they are not nearly as resilient as bamboo sheets. Bamboo bedding is incredibly long-wearing and durable, and will be with you for many years if you follow good care habits. And when you purchase goods that are more durable and long-lasting, it means fewer resources will be used to make your bedding over time, which is great for your wallet and for the earth.
Elasticity: Have you ever cursed your sheets for not quite fitting over your organic mattress? Stretching them only to find they’ve crept off the corners a few days later can be incredibly frustrating. With bamboo, this is rarely a problem since bamboo fabrics generally have more elasticity than cotton.
Biodegradable: Your luxury bamboo bedding will last a very long time, but when it comes time to dispose of them, you can rest assured that they are biodegradable. That means if they are sent to a commercial composting facility, they won’t take up any space in your local landfill, which is good for the planet and your local municipality (it’s expensive to maintain landfills).
Temperature regulating: Like organic wool bedding, bamboo bedding is great for a variety of climates. It naturally stays cool in the summer and helps you feel warm and cozy in the winter, which means you can use bamboo sheets regardless of your location.
