Getting enough sleep is part of a healthy life-style. It’s good for your heart and your mind. But wouldn’t you rest even better, knowing that your PJs are made of sustainable materials that are better for the environment and human health? At night, it’s one less thing to worry about when you’re trying to unwind and relax.
That’s where companies with sustainable sleepwear options, such as Cariloha or Only Hearts, come in. Cariloha offers sleep shirts made of the renewable resource bamboo. They come in a v-neck and henley style with cute stripe or dot patterns in pink and grey. Bamboo is super-soft, naturally odor-resistant and wicks moisture away from your body. It’s a rapidly renewable resource, with some species of bamboo growing up to 3-4 feet a day, without the need for fertilizers, pesticides or much water. In addition, bamboo releases 35 percent more oxygen into the air than an equivalent stand of trees. These facts alone make me sleep better at night.
Only Hearts is based in New York and has a clothing and lingerie collection made of organic cotton, including sleepwear, ethically made in Peru. Everything is produced in accordance with the guidelines established by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), IMO (Institute for Marketecology), and the ETAD (Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers). You can learn more about the GOTS approved organic cotton collection and guidelines here. The certification process is pretty impressive and covers the entire production from processing, manufacturing, to labeling.
Regardless if you like it flirty or fun, there’s something for every sleep style at Only Hearts’ organic cotton sleepwear collection. It ranges from long sleeve PJ sets that have organic knit button downs and shorts with cute stars to organic cotton lace chemises in black. All of them have in common, that they might ease your mind at night so that you can wake up feeling rested.
