Kids bedding sets are important for their ability to create a welcoming, cozy sleeping environment for kids. Sometimes just a fun, expressive print can be enough to brighten a child’s morning and set a tone for the day ahead. Organic sheets are a great option, as their manufacturing is inherently high-quality and chemical-free. In addition to the oh-so-versatile organic cotton, we feature different organic textiles like bamboo lyocell sheets and linen bedding, which we like to bring to your attention for their unique features and innovation.
Girl’s and Boy’s Bedding Sets
Girl’s bedding sets and boy’s bedding sets don’t have to be dual opposites. Nor does one have to be exclusively offered to one child and not the other. We try to deconstruct these beliefs by simply letting kids be kids and choosing something that makes them happy. Any child can enjoy our top choices for sustainable bedding.
For a bright print suitable for a bold personality, try Mini Rodini’s Zebra set, crafted from GOTS-certified organic cotton. Also, this set is part of the brand’s living wage project, meaning that instead of paying minimum wages, Mini Rodini sets the pay high enough for workers to maintain a normal standard of living. Looking for another bold print? Try Jungalow’s Aja sheet set. Its fun, cartoonish design is an homage to the rainforest in all it’s natural splendor.
For a print that’s a little more understated, but still full of personality, try West Elm’s Bunny sheet set. This set is part of West Elm’s Better Cotton initiative, which educates and supports farmers in growing more environmentally sustainable cotton crops. Or, try Coyuchi’s flannel sheets to transform cold nights into cozy ones.

We love it’s Fair Trade manufacturing and cute, illustrative print.

We spend a lot of our time in the kitchen, so it’s no surprise that this area of the household produces the most waste. How can we reduce that? By choosing zero-waste products over single-use items. We know it isn’t easy finding eco-friendly goods and we want to make the search as easy as possible. Here is a comprehensive list of the best sustainable reusable food containers to help you get started.
Eco-Friendly Food Containers
When working towards a low-waste lifestyle, we want to focus on products that are plastic-free and reusable. Glass food storage containers are one easy alternative we love and highly recommend. They are modular, versatile and simple to clean. Perfect for leftovers or as food prep containers for those busy weeks! For some sustainable options, visit Inka or West Elm.
A zero-waste must-have is of course a set of stainless steel containers. The Package Free company has plenty of steel options that are truly leakproof. As their name suggests, they operate with compostable shipping materials and only sell products that help eliminate plastic.
Reusable Storage Bags For Your Zero Waste Kitchen
On the topic of reusability, we also had to include reusable bags for your produce and other pantry items. At Àplat, you’ll find a pantry kit that comes with durable and breathable organic cotton bags for your groceries. These help keep food fresh and are safe to store in pantries, the refrigerator and the even freezer.
A beeswax food wrap is a new, exciting method in preserving food. Derived from (as you guessed) beeswax, these biodegradable wraps are perfect for storing cheeses, fruits, sandwiches, vegetables and other goods. You simply use the warmth of your hands to shape the wrap onto your item and there you have it – it sticks to itself! Afterwards, you can wash and reuse as much as you need.

Sheets, like sleepwear, can often be overlooked. As we buy lower quality bedding or bedding we only considered because we liked the color of the pattern, we forget to consider manufacturing processes and materials. Be sure you find organic sheets and sustainable bedding with our choices for sheet sets and duvet covers. Discover silky fabrics, linens, organic cotton and more, all curated to help you find the sheet set of your dreams.
Companies that create organic sheets are significantly more likely to be involved in sustainable practices as well as carry the correct certifications to ensure you safe home goods. This is because organic certifications involve higher standards than conventional growing and manufacturing processes. With this in mind, we’ve been sure to sort through the choices in organic cotton sheet sets to provide you with the best. Not to forget the duvet; if you’re looking for a new cover, we have different fabric options, including organically-grown, to provide you with the perfect fit. Goodee features an organic cotton duvet cover that comes in a bright and buttery yellow. Or, an ethical factory in Portugal creates Parachute’s blue European-flax linen duvet cover. Alterra Pure’s cover also features GOTS-certified organic cotton in a fresh and crisp white. All covers are OEKO-TEX certified.
Benefits of Bamboo Sheets
Bamboo wood-pulp fibers make up bamboo lyocell sheets. And with significantly less water usage, they’re more sustainable than cotton. These fibers create a wide range of different textured fabrics. But for bed sheets specifically, it is extremely popular because it makes a silk-like sateen fabric. It’s luxuriously smooth, breathable, cooling, and – unlike silk – vegan. Ettitude’s signature sateen fabric uses five-hundred times less water than cotton and fifty-two percent less CO2 emissions. We’ve featured their bamboo lyocell sheets and pillowcase sets so you can check out different options.
