That won’t break the bank
I’ve done a short post before about organic bedding for babies, organic baby sleep (or lack thereof), and that is something that is pretty easy to find. But eco-friendly bedding for grown ups? Different story. Organic sheets and plain, mega-boring duvet covers might be easy to get hold of (although the colour selection isn’t great), but patterned duvet covers? Very thin on the ground. Organic duvets, pillows and mattresses? Sell a kidney. Seriously, the expense is jaw-dropping.
However, I was determined to find eco-friendly bedding that was pretty and reasonably priced for the first stage of our bedroom make-over (so excited).
It took me a few days of searching, every time I had a few minutes. I didn’t really think that I’d find anything. This was something I had looked for in the past and come up with nothing. I retyped my search criteria in as many ways as I could think of. And then I found La Redoute.
This place is heaven for the fashion conscious eco-babe on a budget. It was here that I scored a gorgeous, king-sized, 100% cotton duvet cover for £15. It was in a sale, but they seem to do big sales a lot, and full price it was only £22.50, a price to rival most mainstream stores. Although not organic, it is Oeko-Tex Certified, meaning it is tested (beyond the normal industry standard) to ensure it does not contain any substance detrimental to health. For £15 I think I can live with that compromise! Sure enough when I unwrapped the duvet, it did not have the horrible chemical whiff you get from many other brands.
I also found a king-sized duvet with organic cotton cover, and recycled polyester filling for £38. Such a reasonable price, soooo different to all the other options I found.
My long search paid off and I now have new, eco-friendly bedding without breaking the bank. Seriously, check this place out.
