Green Your ZZZs: Sustainable Sheets

Sleep easy on organic sheets You may spend a third of your life sleeping, so you might as well snooze in a bedroom that's healthy and eco-friendly. This week, we'll give you tips for a greener night's sleep. 

 Tip #2: Opt for Organic Sheets

Skip the petrochemical-derived synthetic bedding by choosing natural-fiber sheets. Sustainable fibers include untreated organic cotton, linen, hemp, and bamboo. Sheets marked "permanent press" or "no iron" may have been treated with formaldehyde, so embrace wrinkles to avoid the chemicals. If you purchase new sheets, remember that your old sheets can be reused as cleaning rags or made into draft snakes
