Well, even without lazy long weekends between the sheets, we spend a third of our lives in bed, so doesn’t it make sense to have the stuff that’s next to our skin - the duvets, sheets and pillowcases - as organic and chemical free as possible?

We've worked with our sponsor, Squareflower, to bring you the best organic bedding options out there.

These organic bedding brands have set themselves a challenge to change our sheets not just for own comfort, but through using organic and Fairtrade sourced materials, to make the standard of living better for others.

The Best Organic And Ethical Bedding Companies

1. Square Flower

“When shopping for bedding we found ourselves overwhelmed by choice, and consistently let down on quality," says Ben Franklin, founder of organic bedding brand, Square Flower.

"We believed we could do better. Shocked by what we found in the murky world of textiles, we realised the only way we could ensure the finest materials, the best craftsman and a truly ethical production process, was to build a supply chain ourselves.

So that’s what we did, right back to our organic, small holding family farms. We’re doing things differently.”

Square Flower's organic and Fairtrade bedding uses the highest quality long staple cotton to ensure extra fine yarns and the best night’s sleep ever.

They know everyone up and down their supply chain is treated fairly (using Fairtrade factories in India), and their unfussy and modern take on bed linen is combined with a 400 thread count for the perfect balance between comfort and breathability.

We love their bold blue tones and even their packaging is plastic free.

2. Lily & Mortimer

Lily & Mortimer is a luxurious homewares brand that focuses on ethically sourced, 100% organic and Fairtrade bedding.

The ethical bedding range at Lily & Mortimer includes 300 thread count organic sheets that come in two designs and three colourways - Stargazer - a modern take on the classic pleat and Dreamers – that brings a pop of colour to any bedroom scheme.

Each ranges from Single to Super King Size. Lily & Mortimer also has two styles of nursery fitted sheets in crib to cot bed size, with cute elephant and butterfly prints.

3. Sleep Organic

Luxury meets sustainability at Sleep Organic.

They believe you shouldn’t have to compromise on quality or style when you buy organic and ethical bedding.

Their team is passionate about creating original, unique bedding designs, which take their inspiration from nature. Pick from a range of designs including lavender flower embroidered sets, adorable cat, dog, bunny and robin embroidered bed sets.

All of Sleep Organic's products are GOTS-certified organic from farmer to finished product.

They also pride themselves on being Fairtrade certified right through the supply chain, ensuring farmers get a fair price and greater control over their own lives.

4. Ecosophy

For ethical bedding, Ecosophy certainly tick the box.

New in is their environmentally friendly, organic cotton jersey bedding.

It's that made from ethically sourced, organic cotton fibres that are grown in Turkey and then knitted rather than woven, which gives them a T-shirt like softness, that is warmer than percale or sateen.

The melange yarns have a marl effect that’s simply sumptuous to snuggle down in.

5. Urban Collective

A cosy bed doesn’t just need an organic duvet though, we’re a sucker for a pretty bedspread (which can be hauled onto the sofa for movie nights).

Urban Collective have a range of patterned and colourful organic cotton duvet sets but we love this dusky pink organic cotton bedspread.

It’s made of from GOTS certified material and comes with a textured pattern (and in four other colours if dusky pink isn’t for you).

6. Dip & Doze

Founded by sixth generation textile experts, one of the newest UK organic bedding brands is Dip & Doze.

They do a fine line in Fairtrade, organic cotton sheets and duvet sets as well as a range of suitable neutral, super soft towels.

On bedding, the brand do a 30 day no quibble trial, they’re certified by the Soil Association (for organic) and Fairtrade and they specialise in simple, clean, white ethical bedding.

7. Rise & Fall

Egyptian cotton gets the sustainable makeover at new sustainable bedding brand, Rise & Fall.

Indulgently soft with dreamy 600 thread counts made of extra long fibres, Rise & Fall have put in thousands of hours of R&D to find the perfect sheet.

And if you don’t agree, they’ll refund you (even after you’ve slept on them for up to 100 nights).

If that wasn’t enough, the brand uses a manufacturing partner that’s driven by wind power and funds education for its female workforce.

Rise & Fall partners with Centrepoint homeless charity and all of the packaging is plastic free.

8. White & Green

Irish family brand White & Green have been draping beds with luxurious organic bedding for years.

They set out to create the best bedding in the world, and so use hand-picked organic cotton that’s made ethically in India and designed in Dublin.

We’re talking simple whites and subtle tones here but there’s something so refreshing about clean white sheets.

The 300 thread count sateen bedding is Fairtrade and GOTS certified so you can stay in bed guilt-free.

11. Nimbus

The new SMARTDOWN bed linen collection at Nimbus Bedding offers a cosy vegan alternative to goose or down.

Its duvets are filled with recycled PET plastic bottles, which you think might be scratchy but they've been broken down in an eco-friendly factory to silk soft strands for a hypoallergenic, eco-friendly alternative to regular duvets.

By using recycled fibres, the factory uses 66% less energy and 54% fewer CO2 emissions. Let's cuddle.

There’s a large range of styles and sizes, we love the Shibori Chic collection - Shibori is the Japanese art of hand-dying and these gorgeous prints come in shades of soft indigo.

13. Ara Living

This London based brand believes that luxury bedding shouldn't cost the earth, financially or metaphorically.

It aims to reinvent the bedding market by getting people to think about the cost to the environment when they buy new sheets.

Ara Living's 100% organic bedding is Fairtrade certified and its factories use renewable energy to reduce waste (and use 90% less water during production).

There's a transparent supply chain and a percentage of the profits go to Hope For Justice, which fights against modern day slavery.

But best of all, these are hotel quality, organic sheets and duvet sets that won't make you feel guilty for staying in bed all day.

It's ridiculously soft and simple. No harmful chemicals or nasties lurk in their sheets - just high quality, long-tail cotton fibres for silky, hotel-quality sheets and duvet sets.
