Bed could be the best place on earth. There’s nothing better than snuggling up in flannel with your loved one on a cold winter’s night, lounging in the sunlight on a lazy summer morning or catching some Zs after a tough week at work. Make these experiences even more heavenly by dressing your bed in eco-friendly linens. From organic cotton to hemp and bamboo, the options for earth-smart sheets are growing. Read on for 7 top organic and eco-friendly bedding picks.

Unlike conventional cotton, organic cotton is grown from untreated seeds without the use of synthetic fertilizers and harsh insecticides and pesticides. Another eco benefit: no toxic chemicals are used in the harvesting or processing of organic cotton.
