When Queen Elizabeth decided to give Buckingham Palace a plastic detox, I realized it might be time for me to get truly serious about doing the same. In the 12 months since, I've been working hard to eradicate plastic from my apartment, use only the cleanest of cleaning products so as to avoid releasing ever-more toxins into the air, and take other such measures to protect myself and the environment. As I audited my sustainable-home situation, it hit me that I was missing one super obvious opportunity: eco-friendly bedding.

To my horror, I realized I'm still spending eight hours a night in cheap cotton sheets manufactured with more chemicals than conscience. (Cotton is one of the world's dirtiest crops!) To remedy the situation, I performed a deep dive into sustainable bedding brands (or "green" bedding brands) and found some truly innovative companies working hard to create cozy sheets, comforters, and more so that conscientious consumers can sleep soundly. Below are the best brands to keep in mind when shopping for sustainable, eco-friendly bedding sets and linens.

The best eco-friendly bedding brands and products

Cozy Earth

Cozy Earth's whole schtick is temperature-regulating products made from natural materials. Its line of bamboo bedding, which includes sheets, duvet covers, comforters, and pillows, are pretty much the coolest thing you'll ever sleep in, made to give you a dreamy night's sleep without worrying about night sweats. The cool-to-the-touch fabric feels heavenly against skin, and since it's made from bamboo, is much more sustainable for the planet, too.
