Organic Cotton: The Best Fabric for your Bed Sheets

If you have a bed, then you need sheets. But what kind of sheets? There are so many options out there, it's hard to know what to get: conventional cotton, organic bamboo, microfiber, eucalyptus, organic cotton? Some fabrics have obvious advantages while others have disadvantages. For example, organic bamboo is hypoallergenic but it lacks durability; microfiber is durable but not as breathable; cotton is breathable but uses a lot of water, etc.

One fabric stands out amongst all others: Organic Cotton! Let's explore why.

Organic cotton is healthier for you and your skin. It is grown without the use of pesticides, fertilizers, or harmful chemical treatments. Most bamboo is processed using caustic chemicals to break the wood fiber down into a state which can be woven into a fabric. The end fabric doesn’t degrade, so it ends up in landfills and it doesn’t break down. Microfiber is plastic, and it sheds micro-plastics into the water and air. This creates health risks for humans and wildlife. 

Organic cotton uses a lot less water. The Soil Association found that organic cotton can be grown using 91% less water than its non-organic counterpart. Seeing as 80% of organic cotton crops are rain-fed, not irrigated, farmers are also able to produce these plants without drawing heavily on local water resources. Thus, buying organic bedding supports sustainable agriculture practices that are good for people and our planet! If you're looking to start an environmentally friendly lifestyle, this is the first step.

Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supply. It also means farmers grow more than one crop which supplements their food and income.

Organic cotton fabric lasts longer because it doesn't crack or pill like other fabrics do. Other fabrics use harmful chemicals that actually break down them and/or damage them. 

Long-staple, organic cotton is the only fabric that gets softer and more comfortable against your body, without breaking down over time.
