Nest Bedding has recently expanded their product offerings and is now offering Fair Trade Certified Organic Sheets. These sheets are consistent with the quality that the Nest Bedding brand is now known for. And, at $129 they are a great value.
You can order these sheets directly from the next website in 3 different colors; white, ivory or blue. Once you place your order they should arrive to your door in about a week. Even the packaging is sustainable. Your sheets come packed in a cloth satchel that you can reuse as a tote.
Below are the sheet specifications from the Nest website:
- Made with Gots Certified Organic Cotton.
- 300 Thread Count means durable, long lasting sheets.
- 3 Lovely Pastel Colors to choose from.
- Choose Pleated or Hemmed option
- 100 Days Satisfaction Guarantee.
- Packaged in our Eco-Friendly Packaging and ready for gift giving.
- Fits up to 18″ deep mattress.
- Fair Trade Sourced and Certified
These are 300 thread count sateen weave sheets. That means they are both smooth and breathable. In addition they are woven with long staple cotton which is very durable so you can expect to get years of consistent use out of these sheets.
Aside from look and feel, the story of how these sheets were made is just as important. They come from a Fair Trade certified farm and factory which means that the farmers and factory workers are paid a living wage. They are also GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. GOTS is an independent organization that ensures the farms and factories are following their standards for production of organic fibers all throughout the supply chain.
The cotton industry is a dirty industry. According to the Rodale Institute, cotton covers 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land and cotton growers use up to 16% of the world’s pesticides. Not all these pesticides simply wash out of your sheets either.
When you are creating your sleep environment, comfort should not be your only concern. Indoor air quality and sleeping on surfaces with a minimal amount of chemicals should also be a priority. That’s why these sheets are so appealing. You get comfort, quality, value and a clean product.
These sheets are a great value and live up to the Nest brand. They compliment any of the Nest mattresses very well. At this price point there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go organic over conventional cotton sheets.
