Ethical Bedding completed a sustainability assessment as part of our partner application process. To promote transparency, their responses to our questions are below:
What is our mission?
Our goal is to help make our customers more comfortable, whilst also making the planet more comfortable. We do this by enabling easier, smarter, more sustainable choices for your bedroom with our organic bedding. That's why all our organic bedding are earth-friendly, skin-friendly and cruelty-free. Cotton uses a huge amount of water, damages natural habitats, directly hurts animals and pollutes our planet. All to create the stuff we sleep in. That isn't fair. We prefer to leave things better than how we found them, so our bedding is made differently: - Doesn't hurt the planet in any way when it's made - Improves your body, mind, and sleep quality when you use it - Won't pollute the planet when you're finished with it
