This unique and supportive community is a place to discover products and services to reduce your chemical use. It's a one-stop ethical marketplace advocating education, awareness and making it easy for folks to find nontoxic and less toxic alternatives via their online global directory. And they are growing exponentially and on a mission to get us on a cleaner path.

With over 125 million chemicals registered for use and approx. 200,000 new chemicals approved each week we are constantly exposed in many of our every day activities and rest states. With such an overlaod, and without knowledge of when and how these chemicals enter our lives, there is the fear of becoming complacent in not researching nor asking what the real nutritional value of our products really mean (food, clothing, home decor etc). Invariably the repercussions of these harmful pollutants are deadly to man and planet. Check out our chemical free status for peace of mind as you sleep under our organic bed linen.

To qualitfy each other's eco minded muster, both our businesses put the microscope up to each other, and researched and questioned and analysed each other and made our interviews* public. We encourage you to jump online and join the community to find some amazing no/low toxic products & services - It's free to join.

BedLinenTestWeb7 bed linen aspects to help you sleep soundly at night.
 
1. There are a lot of human hands involved in the making of our bedlinen - #handmade
Sure, you can't beat the speed and efficiency of modern machinery used by many of the larger bedding companies out there, but as with so many other things in life, slower is sometimes simply better. While many of our competitors focus on volume and economy, our focus is on quality and craftsmanship. Organic Bed Threads duvet covers are made by highly-skilled crafts people in India, each of whom not only bring years of experience and knowledge to their jobs, but also a passion for creating only the best work by hand. Encouraging handmade techniques on the textile world stage is so culturally important.
