Eco-Friendly Bedding: 3 Must Haves for a Sustainable Bedroom

Our favorite bedding trend for the season is Green. And we aren't talking about shades of chartreuse. We're talking about linens made with sustainable materials using environmentally-friendly practices.

But you don't have to sacrifice luxury for sustainability. Bedding made with eco-friendly fibers can be sumptuous and soft just like the finest cottons.

Here's our 3-step guide to a greener bedroom:

1. Sustainable Sheets - Sustainable textiles have come a long way since itchy, raw fabrics in dull colors were first introduced. Manufacturing processes have vastly improved and eco friendly options like Tencel, Modal and Bamboo are soft as silk and colored with non-toxic dyes. These fibers are hypoallergenic with antifungal and antibacterial properties. This means they are less prone to mold, mildew, and odor. Bonus - This makes sustainable sheets a great option for people with allergies and sensitivities.

For the primary bedroom, we like the luxe SDH Legna Classic sheets. These sheets feel as supple as silk but they're as easy to care for as cotton. These 100 percent wood fiber sheets are woven in Italy to SDH's meticulous standards for beauty and quality.

Another extremely sustainable fiber bedding option is bamboo. Technically classified as a grass, bamboo is fast-growing and requires no fertilizer or pesticides. One of our favorites is this decadently soft set from Pom Pom at Home.

For guests and kids, we like Pine Cone Hill's Silken Solid collection. Available in a variety of colors to match every décor, this collection is 100 percent TENCEL, a cellulose fiber made from wood pulp. Silken Solid is also available in coordinating quilted coverlets and lightweight 'puffs'.

Morning hack: top your bed with the Silken Solid "Puff". This one-and-done bedding solution that will have your bed made in 60 seconds -- just give it a shake and head out the door.

2. Silk Inserts - Bedside Manor's silk filled duvets and pillows are made from the highest quality Mulberry Silk and feature a sustainable, breathable bamboo shell. Mulberry silk is the finest silk and can be used in its natural state – no chemicals or treatments are required. Cozy and fluffy without being heavy, a silk comforter is an ideal choice for any season.

3. Eco-friendly Detergent - Often overlooked, another way to go green is by switching to an eco-friendly detergent like LeBlanc's Linenwash. Environmentally safe, Earth friendly and composed of biodegradable, organic ingredients, Linenwash can be used on most luxury fabrics. Bonus - their products feature packaging made from recycled materials.
