Sleep Healthy – Organic Cotton Sheets

We strive to adopt a healthy and ethical lifestyle not just in our beauty and skincare and food, but also in our home. So we were thrilled to discover SOL Organics’ sheets.

So soft and inviting!

We all know buying organic cotton clothes and organic food is better for the planet, but we knew we were coming up short when it came to our sheets. Organic sheets are gaining popularity as people are aware of chemicals used in everyday products including bedding. Organic sheets are better for the planet. Pesticides to grow conventional cotton can enter the food chain through water run off and can affect the local farming communities. Organic sheets feel better as the fabric has had less contact with harsh chemicals. Organic sheets are not only durable but also biodegradable. Organic sheets are higher quality as the cotton is picked by hand and not washed with chemicals.

SOL Organics is also safe for babies!

Sleeping in comfort is a necessity in our homes and SOL Organics‘ sheets more than fit the bill. The first thing we both noticed was they are super soft and feel very luxurious – so comfy that our entire families were excited (see last photos!). And since we both love the color gray, we both had to have the dove gray sheets and duvet set (though we both also love the darker Steel Gray color and White as well).  Add to that the commitment to ethical and sustainable manufacturing, we are now completely obsessed with this brand.  Don’t you want to sleep comfortably (and healthier) too?

But it’s what’s behind this brand that makes it truly stand out. SOL Organics has a mission they call “Ethically made from Seed to Sheet.” They are certified fair trade, sourced from Kisan Samiti Farms, Central India. The super soft sheets are made from organic, non-GMO cotton. The crops are only rain-fed, using only natural fertilizers and no child labor. From there the sheets are crafted in their FLO Certified Factory (assuring fairness throughout global supply chains). They only use low impact eco-friendly dyes, reducing water usage. Then the final product comes packed in a re-usable bag made from fabric, natural coconut buttons and FSC certified recycled packaging.

This company passes on cost savings to consumers by removing distributors and selling direct. Their web site details how they are able to pass the cost savings to consumers they call the “Fair Price” model. We are sold!
