Best Organic Bedding for Sweet, Eco Friendly Dreams

Discover the best brands for organic & non-toxic bedding – including organic cotton sheets and sustainable bamboo sheet sets; from eco luxury to affordable.

Best Organic Bedding Brands

When you crawl into bed for a much-deserved night of rest, the last thing you want to be worrying about is where your bed sheets came from.

The truth is that most bedding is made without regard for your health or the environment and may have been produced in factories with unethical working conditions.

We’ve done the homework for you and rounded up over thirty bedding brands that offer high quality sheets, comforters and other bedding products that are ethically produced using natural and organic fabrics. So you can sleep easy knowing your bedding is as safe and cozy as it feels!

Why Buy Natural & Organic Sheets?

It always pains me to say that many of the products we buy for our homes and lives are not as safe as we think they are – either for our health or for the environment. This is even true of something as basic as the bed sheets you go to sleep with every night.

From a health perspective, your bed sheets may contain residues from harmful chemicals like pesticides, dyes, formaldehyde, phthalates and more. Some sheets are even infused with chemicals to make them wrinkle resistant or stain resistant. I bet you’d rather not have those things touching your skin!

From an environmental perspective, your bedding may be a huge resource hog and involve environmentally destructive processes. Conventional cotton uses up 30% of the world’s pesticides and the chemicals used to process and finish it adds to the problem. Polyester is a type of plastic that comes from petroleum, a non-renewable resource.

From a social good perspective, your sheets may have been produced using child labor or in a factory with unhealthy working conditions for its employees. Yeah, not something pleasant to think about, but it’s important to look for ethical bedding.

Natural and organic bedding is an important part of creating a healthy, non-toxic environment in your bedroom. Along with a non-toxic mattress (read more about how to buy a mattress and the best non-toxic mattress brands) and fresh, purified air in your bedroom, your eco-friendly bedding will set you up for a healthy night’s sleep.

Pros & Cons of Organic Bedding

Natural & Organic Fabrics for Organic Bed Sheets

These are the sustainable fabrics to look for in your organic sheets and bedding:

  • Organic cotton: Certified organic cotton is grown without pesticides and using sustainable farming practices. 
  • Bamboo: Bamboo grows without pesticides and is a renewable resource that grows extremely quickly (up to 4 feet per day!)
    • Viscose is the type of fabric produced from bamboo. It does involve resources and chemicals to manufacture, but care is taken to produce it in a sustainable manner. Look for viscose from bamboo that has been produced in a closed-loop process (which reuses water and chemicals used to process the bamboo).
    • Bamboo is grown naturally, without pesticides, but it can not be certified organic. Look for Oeko-Tex certification for bamboo sheets. 
  • Eucalyptus: Sustainable eucalyptus fiber is used to create Tencel lyocell fabric. Similar to bamboo, eucalyptus fabric can not be certified organic but is grown without pesticides.
  • Organic wool: Certified organic wool is used in blankets and fillings for comforters

Certifications for Non-Toxic Bedding

Since most sheets and bedding do not go through any special testing for safety or evaluations of environmental or social impact, it’s important to look for independent certifications to guide you to the best bedding choices. Here are some certifications to look for:

  • Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) – Internationally recognized as the toughest organic textile standard because it goes beyond verifying the organic farming process to include every step of manufacturing. Products must contain at least 95% organic fiber, use non-toxic dyes and not be treated with bleach, formaldehyde or any other toxic substances. Strict social and environmental standards are also required.
  • OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 – A comprehensive, third-party testing and certification system for textile products at all stages of production. All components of a product are required to be free from a variety of harmful substances including formaldehyde, banned colourants, pesticides, heavy metals and more.
  • MADE SAFE – A certification that ensures products are non-toxic. Products are screened for a wide range of toxins including behavioral toxins, carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, heavy metals and more. In addition, MADE SAFE goes above and beyond by lab-testing products for safety.
  • GreenGuard Gold – Provides assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits. Gold certification considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals, such as children and the elderly.
  • Fair Trade Certified – A product certification that promotes equitable trade practices, working with farms and factories around the world to empower workers and improve wages, benefits and conditions.

Best Brands for Eco-Friendly Sheets & Bedding

In order to do a proper review of the best organic sheets, I received some product samples to check them out!

But more than simply sleeping on these sheets, I did a lot of research to find out more about these brands – how the products are made, the certifications they have, and their commitment to making safe and eco-friendly products.

First a few notes:

  • Most sheets are made overseas, not in the U.S. (I’m guessing for cost reasons.)
  • It is recommended to wash all new bedding prior to first use – which helps relax the fibers for a softer feel.
  • Cold water washing is better for the environment and has been shown to be just as effective as hot water for cleaning clothes.
  • Most sheet sets include a flat sheet, a fitted sheet and a set of pillow cases.

All of these organic bedding brands are made with natural fibers (most are certified organic) and other organic materials and produced without any harsh chemicals.

    I have been looking at organic sheets but currently don’t do anything to make it eco-friendly.

  15. Tamra Phelps says:

    I guess my skin has become more sensitive as I’ve aged because I can’t take the heavily perfumed detergents anymore. I use cotton sheets (I haven’t tried bamboo yet) and I use detergents without perfumes, etc.

  16. Steve Weber says:

    We use dryer balls and eco friendly products to clean.

  17. Working on this but we do wash on cold!

  18. I use non-toxic cleaning supplies.

  19. We’ve started using organic sheets, although I would be interested in trying a new brand, and looking to replace my kid’s sheets. We are due for a new mattress in the next year or so, and have been researching more eco-friendly options.

    1. Robin Earle says:

      Really like HAPPSY with pillow top. Also bought a Birch queen mattress. A little firmer than we’re used to but happy about non-toxic piece!

      1. We have a Happsy mattress too – it’s awesome! Not familiar with the Birch brand of mattresses.

  20. Ruthanne Schraeder says:

    Ouch! The cost of many of those sheet sets are beyond my budget! I do buy organic cotton but did not check further than that for fair trade, etc. Definitely something I can do for next time. I do look for bamboo but usually too expensive. I shop at Winners in Canada.

  22. I have added a plant or two to our room, but I want to also get organic sheets!

  27. Alyssa T. says:

    We have a few sets of organic sheets from Target. Also use allergy mattress protectors that zip and seal the non organic mattresses in. Unfortunately non toxic mattresses and most bedding are too expensive for us to afford.

  28. Sandy Klocinski says:

    Make sure stacks of papers don’t accumulate on my nightstand or piles of laundry on my chair. I am ruthless about what enters my room and organize what’s there. Recycle unnecessary papers. Donate unwanted or unused clothing. Give away excess bedding, too – homeless shelters are in need of gently used pillows, blankets, and sheets.

  29. Brittany Thomas says:

    We switched to kapok pillows last year.

  67. It would be nice if the list of brands is updated on a periodic basis. I recently used a brand called The Organic Factor and the bedding range is lovely.

    best

    1. I do update this post occasionally as I learn about new bedding. Just added Aizome bedding!

  68. Why is West Elm crossed out> thank you

  69. Just an update, the Target queen set by Threshhold is $65 not $49.
    Also, I don’t buy sets, and know others who don’t, so it would be great to know which seller sells individual sheets.
    Thanks!
