Your bedroom. It’s where you start and end your day. Everything about your bedroom helps set the tone of how you want to feel when you wake up, and when you go to bed.
You should be intentional about how you want your bedroom to look, feel, and smell.
But is your bedroom outfitted to match your conscious lifestyle?
Now that doesn’t mean going out of your way to find unnecessary decor and essentials for your bedroom. Aligning your bedroom’s style with your values is about replacing unethical and sometimes harmful products with brands that believe in a triple bottom line—people, planet, profit.
When you spend a good 6- 8 hours in your bedroom sleeping, why not invest in making it your own little slice of heaven.
These 9 brands will help you find the right socially conscious and sustainable linens, mattresses, and more for creating the most ethical bedroom of your dreams.

Did you know most mattresses and pillows are dunked in vats of chemical flame retardants, bleaches, and dyes? Seems crazy, right? We’re laying face first into our mattresses and pillows for 6 – 8 hours a day, meaning we’re putting ourselves at risk of breathing toxins all night long.
