This week on the blog, we're excited to introduce our Planet Friendly partner, Sheets & Giggles. They'll be sharing information about their soft and cozy Eucalyptus Lyocell bedding and why they recommend using Nellie's to keep it looking great!
Why we're obsessed with Nellie's Laundry Soda
Hey there, we are Sheets & Giggles, the creators of sustainable bedding products made from Eucalyptus Lyocell (and other sustainable materials). In the past, when our customers asked us for laundry detergent recommendations, we just said, "something gentle, no laundry pods or bleach," but we never got too specific... until recently.
After washing our eucalyptus bedding with every detergent under the sun, we found true love with Nellie's Laundry Soda. Nellie's Laundry Soda is made with four simple, clean ingredients, no harsh chemicals, and no fillers. It's gentle on our eucalyptus sheets and the planet. In fact, we love it so much that we recently started selling it on SheetsGiggles.com.
Like Nellie's, we care about our impact on the planet. Whenever we make a product, we always ask ourselves the same question: is it sustainable? Everything from our flagship 100% Eucalyptus Lyocell sheets to our Eucalyptus Mattress is made from renewable, biodegradable, or recycled materials - and, occasionally, all three.
What makes Eucalyptus Lyocell sustainable?
- Our Eucalyptus bedding is made from the eucalyptus tree's fibers, which means they're plant-based and completely biodegradable.
- Eucalyptus trees are naturally insect repellant, so they don't require any insecticides or pesticides (cotton uses an estimated 11% of global pesticide use and 16% of global insecticide use).
- Eucalyptus Lyocell is made in a closed-loop system that reuses 99.6% of water and solvents over and over (and over) again.
- Our bedding is USDA Biobased certified, Vegan, and FSC, PEFC & SFI (made from biodiverse, responsibly-sourced forests).
But that's not the only reason we love Eucalyptus Lyocell. It's incredibly soft, cooling (perfect for hot sleepers), hygienic, static-free, and hypoallergenic. Seriously, it's like the unicorn of fabrics.
Clearly, Sheets & Giggles and Nellie's have a lot in common. We both care about transparency, simplicity, and creating sustainable products that minimize our impact on the planet. It's a partnership made in eco-friendly heaven (presumably somewhere in Canada). Now go wash your sheets and feel good about it!
