In our ever-consuming world, sometimes we fail to pause and evaluate the impact of everyday necessities like linens. But textiles are a massive contributor to landfill waste and water pollution, so it’s important to consider the bedding you buy.
Proudly Californian brand California Design Den produces a line of bedding that will allow you (and your conscience) to sleep well at night. The lineup of sheets, duvets, towels, mattress covers, blankets and more is developed with sustainability in mind.
Sheet sets and individual flat or fitted sheets are made from non-toxic and chemical-free natural materials such as cotton and bamboo. To ensure a healthy and safe product, materials are independently tested to verify Standard 100 Oeko-Tex certification. This certification means they are free of over 300 commonly-found chemicals. The organic cotton is also GOTS certified.
Since the bedding uses all-natural materials, they are even biodegradable at the end of their usable life. However, the goal is to keep them out of landfills as long as possible with a durable, quality design. Each product is crafted in a green-certified facility in India by experienced artisans.
The bedding is designed at the headquarters in California, a state widely known for its dedication to the environment. The items are then produced in India and packaged in zero-plastic, paper-based boxes for shipment. The plant-based product and packaging materials mean California Design Den bedding doesn’t contribute to water pollution.
“At California Design Den, ensuring our brand is sustainable and eco-friendly is our main priority,” said Deepak Mehrotra, Founder of California Design Den. “From production to packaging, we always want to ensure that what we’re putting out into the world is doing more good than harm. This is why we use natural fibers to produce our bedding, rather than microfiber which is known to cause pollution. Our non-toxic and chemical-free biodegradable bedding is sourced from the highest-quality, earth-grown materials and crafted by skilled artisans in our certified green facility. Our packaging is also biodegradable and contains zero plastics to help prevent polluted waterways and oceans.”
