Look for products that have sustainably grown/raised elements. A great way to ensure that your down matches this guideline is to look for the RDS (responsible down sourcing) logo on packaging for down pillows, down comforters and more.
But what makes something sustainably grown? For the most part, it means that the nutrients removed from the soil are being replaced in a natural way, that the growing is done without harming the local environment, and that there are minimal to no chemicals used in the growing process. Cotton, bamboo, and other natural materials used in bedding can all be grown sustainably.
Another great way to help is to look for products that are made from recycled materials. You can also shop for products that use materials that are biodegradable.
Know the lingo:
Organic – no GMOs, chemicals, or pesticides were used in the growing process.
Sustainable – the land was not harmed by the growing process.
Beyond Organic – a push from organic farmers to ensure that workers are given fair pay and livestock are treated humanely.
Eco-friendly – not harmful to the environment
