Choose organic and fairtrade during national bed month

organic fairtrade bedding for national bed monthDid you know that March is national bed month?

Supported by the sleep council, the aim of bed month is to promote the importance of a good nights sleep.

Last year I stayed at a friend’s house; in her guest bedroom. The bed was the worst I have ever slept on and I ended up having 6 treatments with my osteopath when I got back home – I was in agony, not to mention tired and grumpy!

So I understand the importance of a comfortable bed and cosy bed linen! According to the sleep council, the average person will spend over £1000 on a TV, but less than £300 on a bed. A TV might be replaced every couple of years and a bed is kept for an average of 12.5 years!

A decent bed really does equate to a decent nights sleep, but it’s important to select the right bedlinen too. Why should you sleep under cotton that has been sprayed with chemicals, material made from petroleum or rest your head on pillows made in a sweatshop? It’s not good for you, the workers or the environment.

By opting for fairtrade and organic bedlinen, you really can sleep with the  sweetest of dreams.

Liv sell fairly traded and organic clothing and homeware including luxurious 220 thread count bed linen. Choose from classic, tie or hemstitch.

If you want something other than white, then The Natural store have fairtrade duvet covers and pillow cases in deep ocean blue.

For sumptuous angora and merino throws made by a fair trade craft group in the Himalyas, look no further than Luma.

If you need to stock up on sheets and pillowcases, then Natural Collection sell a good range of  basic organic bedding.

If you’re looking for a new bed, then Myakka have a great range of fair trade wooden bedroom furniture.

Finally, for natural duvets and pillows, look for those stuffed with feather, wool, cotton, silk or even camel hair! Greenfibres have one of the best ranges.
