22 Best Sustainable Bedding Brands for a Cozy Sleep

Eco-friendly and organic bedding brands like Pact, Tuft & Needle, and Takasa

These days, many of us are leaning into leisure. And it’s about time! Since we all need a well-rounded sleep schedule to feel our best and truly take care of ourselves, it’s important to prioritize rest in any way we can.

But first? We need the right bedding to find comfort and serenity — and not at the expense of the planet. 

Of course, if you’re content with the linens you already have gracing your personal nap paradise, there’s no need to buy anything new! (The most sustainable thing you can buy is always… nothing!) 

However, if you’ve been in the market for some new bedding, we want to make it easier for you to find something that meets your needs and doesn’t harm the planet in the process.

Read on for some more information about securing the most sustainable sheets, our recommendations for eco-friendly bedding brands, and of course, some really cute pictures of our dogs taking naps.

What should I look for in sustainable bedding?

Okay, so you’ve already got the sustainable bed frame, you’ve topped it off with an eco-friendly mattress — even your pup has a planet-forward doggy bed — it’s time to put the cherry on top.

As with any environmentalist-friendly shopping, when it comes to finding the best bedding for your lifestyle and values, you’ll want to do your research. 

Materials

Just like your other sustainable home goods, eco-friendly bedding is made with materials that do not contain any toxic chemicals or harm the planet during harvesting. Lots of mass-manufactured bedding is made with conventional cotton and polyester fibers that use lots of pesticides and chemicals — and that’s the stuff of nightmares.

Additionally, bedding companies that switch to simply using organic cotton end up using about 90% less water than conventional cotton crops. 

Some great alternative materials to look for include:

  • Organic hemp
  • Organic linen
  • Eucalyptus
  • Organic cotton (with sub-categories like percale, sateen, jersey, and flannel)
  • Organic latex
  • Tencel, Lyocell or another fabric made with wood fibers
  • Bamboo (if made with closed-loop processes)

Of course, you’ll also want to be sure that any colorful bedding you want to purchase is also made with non-toxic dyes.

Certifications

Most eco-friendly bedding brands will be certified by any number of environmental protection organizations. These are endorsements from independent organizations that ensure rigorous standards of sourcing and manufacturing. 

Keep your eyes peeled for the following certifications and endorsements as you shop:

Environmental Impact

Companies with an emphasis on people and planet will often have environmental impact initiatives in place to practice ethical business. 

Look for transparent information about carbon offsets, thoughtful packaging, partnerships with environmental nonprofits (like 1% for the Planet), or brands that are Climate Neutral certified (like us!). 

Social Impact

Chances are, if a brand wants to take care of the planet, it also wants to take care of the people that work on the planet, too. Look for high standards of supply chain and labor management, thoughtful charitable initiatives, and statuses like B Corp and Fair Trade certifications.

Our favorite eco-friendly bedding brands

The brands you see listed in this section sent members of our team some bedding samples to review for this article. (Our reviews are always honest. Receiving free products for testing never impacts our writing — and brands don’t get any influence on our writing or editorial process.) 

Savvy Rest

What’s good: Savvy Rest is a certified B Corp that works to make sleep safer. With natural latex mattresses, and GOTS and Greenguard Gold certified textiles and bedding, the brand is focused on ensuring the highest quality products, all while considering health impact, materials re-use, renewable energy, water stewardship, social fairness, and more.

Another great aspect of Savvy Rest’s business model is its Safe Sleep Pillow program, which donates organic pillows to local domestic violence organizations to provide the most restful and reliving experience to women and children upon their arrival to a shelter or new home.

Johnathan’s thoughts: Savvy Rest kindly sent me the Organic Kapok Pillow, the Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector, and a lovely Organic Cotton Throw Blanket. All my pieces came in little canvas bags with buttons that can be reused, which I loved. The quality of all three of the items is amazing.

The top flat part of the mattress protector is a flannel-like material that feels so soft.

The cotton blanket is fantastic and has a heavy weight to it but is relatively thin. It’s soft and thick enough to keep you warm, but not like a fluffy blanket that can get too hot. The size is massive, and the natural cotton color would totally go great with any colored sheet set.

The organic Kapok pillow is a customizable pillow. You can unzip the inside cover case and remove stuffing to achieve the ideal plushness, and the Kapok material inside the pillow is so soft and fluffy, but the overall pillow is very firm and plush upon arrival.

Overall, the quality of everything is so high, and I love how luxurious everything feels — a great reminder that everything is natural organic cotton.

Saatva

What’s good: Saatva was founded on the belief that “everyone deserves healthy and restorative sleep on a quality bed.” 

All of Saatva’s bedding options use a variety of thoughtfully-sourced materials that are OEKO-TEX certified, so you can rest easy knowing they meet the highest health and environmental safety standards.

The brand sources Fair Trade and certified organic materials, like 100% organic cotton, 100% Belgian linen, or natural percale cotton. Saatva also adheres to ethical labor standards and plants trees with Evertreen, meaning your purchase can contribute to reforestation efforts, too!

Jessica’s thoughts: I have been so happy with the Organic Sateen Sheet Set from Saatva! I was pleasantly surprised by how long and deep these sheets are. 

The fitted sheet easily fits over my mattress and topper, without any issues of it popping off (which I did experience with my previous sheet set). The bedding has held up great after several washes and has only gotten cozier and softer with each wash.

I also loved that there were very minimal packing materials for shipping. A little extra bonus surprise was that the sheets were packaged in a simple cardboard box and a nice white tote that I’m eager to repurpose for a DIY project in the future.

Antipodean Home

What’s good: Antipodean Home is a 100% regenerative organic bedding brand born out of New Zealand.

What’s different about Antipodean, compared to other brands, is its commitment to sourcing its materials from farms that use regenerative methods of agriculture to remove excess carbon from the atmosphere. 

This approach, which uses tools like cotton crop rotation and natural composting, avoids harmful chemicals while actively improving soil health — leading to a richer ecosystem and cozier sheets.

From there, organic wool and cotton is used to make comfortable and eco-friendly bedding that has natural temperature-regulating and anti-microbial features. 

Bedding options:

Meghan’s thoughts: Antipodean Home sent me the Regenerative Organic Cotton Sheets and the timing couldn’t have been better. I’d had the same standard cotton sheets since college and it was past time that I treated myself to new sheets.

The box came in a compact, recyclable box (that my cat quickly turned into a new toy) nestled next to a four-pack of organic wool dryer balls for future laundry cycles. (This comes as a gift with any sheet set purchase.)

The sateen woven sheets are incredibly soft to the touch and are a lot more breathable than the cotton sheets I was stuck with before. I have fibromyalgia so there are some days when I can’t get out of bed, and these organic cotton sheets make a world of difference.

My first night sleeping on the sheets was genuinely the best sleep I’ve had in months. The queen set comes with two pillowcases, a fitted sheet, and a flat top sheet. 

One note is that their pillow cases are much bigger than my standard-sized pillows, but it was easy enough to tuck the four extra inches in on itself and make it work.

Cozy Earth

What’s good: Perhaps best known for its comfy pajamas (that are apparently on Oprah’s Favorite Things list!) Cozy Earth has a number of other bedding items that will make your next catnap, well, cozy.

Made with OEKO-TEX certified materials and using a closed-loop system, Cozy Earth utilizes viscose from bamboo, as well as linen, and mulberry silk that is free of toxic chemicals and dyes, to offer a luxurious line of bedding staples.

Bedding options:

Kamrin’s thoughts: Cozy Earth sent me a Bamboo Sheet Set, as well as a Bamboo Comforter. They are both lightweight, cooling, and silky-soft!

The comforter was honestly a little smaller and thinner than I anticipated (I’d recommend the extra-fill option for colder climates), but it’ll be the perfect item for summer nights. The sheets, on the other hand, are soft and breathable no matter the weather.

I also love that they both came in canvas packaging that I can reuse when storing the sheets or for nearly any other purpose.

Jessica’s thoughts: Nest sent me the Sateen Organic Cotton Sheet Set & Pillowcases. I have been so happy with these sheets. So far, they’ve held up great after washes and are only getting cozier.

Of course, I’m also thrilled that they’re Fair Trade certified and organic, something that puts my mind at ease when sleeping on them every night. I’ve had issues in the past with other sheets popping off easily with our added mattress topper on, but these have stayed snug and I haven’t had to adjust them at all once I’ve put them on.

One unique note is that the top sheet is a few inches longer than a standard option, but we’re not complaining!
