Eco friendly and sustainable bedroom

Bedrooms are places for one to relax and energise. Making a few tweaks to your existing setup you can enjoy a much cleaner, less cluttered and healthier resting place.

Golden rule: Use what you have first before making a switch.

  1. Mattress: synthetic mattresses are cheaper but are made of non biodegradable synthetic fibres and foam. Nowadays there are plenty of organic alternatives becoming available. However, be careful and do your research as some mattress labelled ‘green’ may still be laced with chemicals. Look for OEKO TEX standard 100 which is a voluntary certification that certifies that a product is free from harmful substances and that the natural fibres present are organic and sustainable.

    1. Find 100% natural wool and 100% organic wool and 100% natural latex mattresses here.
    2. Find 100% GOTS organic certified cotton and wool and 100% natural latex here.
    3. natural latex mattresses, pillows and toppers here.
  2. Insulation audit: good insulation will retain heat during winter by restricting air while reducing your heating and cooling bill. Some eco-friendly materials to consider are

    1. Sheep wool
    2. Cotton/ recycled denim
    3. Icynene - is a spray foam made out of castor oil and expands to 100 times its volumes once sprayed onto the walls and are effective in sealing leaks and drafts and reducing noise.
    4. Aerogel: are low-density, highly-porous solid materials that are light and durable, typically 95-99% air by volume and are effective at insulation.
    5. Thermacork: is a 100% natural building material made from the bark of the oak tree
    6. Cellulose : made from recycled newsprint and other paper.
  3. Control temperature: Turn down the temperature, wear additional layers if possible

  4. Furniture:

    1. If your bedroom is cluttered look at giving some items away.
    2. Shop at second hand furniture stores or freecycle sites.
    3. Where possible look for eco friendly products.
  5. Eco friendly curtains and decorations
