Why is sustainable, ethical sleepwear important?

Sweet dreams are made for a sustainable world. This is why it’s so important to go to bed feeling comfortable that what you’re wearing has been made in a way that is both ethical and sustainable.

Sustainable sleepwear, and ethical fashion, in general, has so many positive benefits for the environment that it’s hard to be ignored. Here are just some of the advantages of opting for eco-friendly and ethical pyjamas.

1. It’s good for the planet

One of the key reasons you should consider choosing sustainably-made sleepwear is that it’s the better choice for the environment. The fabrics chosen are likely to be eco-friendly, as well as free of harmful toxins and chemicals. The packaging is also likely to be recyclable or compostable.

Our loungewear and sleepwear is made from organically-grown bamboo, which has several environmental benefits. Some of these benefits include that it’s grown without artificial irrigation or pesticides, it improves air quality by absorbing more carbon dioxide and is fast growing and regenerating.

Although sustainably-made sleepwear won’t solve all of the planet’s problems, it does allow you to reduce your impact on the planet.

2. It’s good for you

Sustainable sleepwear is not only better for the health of the earth, but for the health of its inhabitants, too. When garments are made in a way that is sustainable and organic, they will also most probably be good for your health. Our lounge and sleepwear, for example, boasts a range of health benefits due to the properties of our bamboo fabric.

These benefits include the fact they’re antibacterial, hypoallergenic, breathable and moisture-wicking.

3. It’s better for workers

Organic and fair trade clothing means that the garments were made without the use of unethical practices – such as child labour – and that they are sweatshop free. When you choose certified ethically-made clothing, you are assured that the brand ensures that the workers who made your garment, were treated fairly.

These include the knowledge that workers receive fair wages and receive long-term employment opportunities, men and women are paid equally, workers are provided with healthy and safe working conditions and they’re protected from prejudice, discrimination and abuse.

4. It’s driven by genuine values

For a product to be ethical and sustainable, time and effort needs to be spent on it. This is why companies who create eco-friendly and ethical clothing are driven by a genuine desire to make a positive change in the world. For this reason, these brands are motivated by authentic values that focus on protecting our planet and the people who inhabit it.

When you choose lounge and sleepwear from a brand that holds eco-friendly and ethical values, you’re aligning yourself with these values, too. This is incredibly important because you want to know that you’re supporting companies who share the same ethical and sustainable beliefs as you.

5. It’s better quality

Finally, choosing sustainable and ethical sleepwear is the better choice because it will without a doubt be of a higher quality. It generally lasts longer, is more unique and is more comfortable. The quality of natural fabrics far surpasses that of synthetic fibres, which is obvious – just touch the fabric.

Our range of Boody bamboo sleepwear is silky-soft and ultra-comfy, meaning that wearing it feels like hugging a cloud. Our sleepwear is also thermoregulating, so it’s perfect for both chilly evenings and hot summer nights. Its breathability will also help by allowing heat and moisture to be released, while its antistatic properties are an additional bonus.

In short, sustainable and ethical sleepwear is just what dreams are made of. Sleep tight.
