So many people around the world are making lifestyle changes to create more sustainable ways of living. Sustainable lifestyles help make the world a better place by allowing you to live a healthier life with minimal impact on the environment.
You can create sustainability in so many ways around the house! But when it comes to the bedroom, you may not be aware that there are many bedroom products that you can buy that are safe for you and the environment around you.
How To Be Sustainable In The Bedroom
Sleep on a certified memory foam mattress
It is widely known that memory foam is the most comfortable mattress for a deeper rejuvenating sleep. But what you might not know is that not all memory foam mattresses are created the same.
Non-certified memory foam can contain harmful substances that can be harmful to the home and environment when released into landfill.
The best memory foam mattresses are made by companies who have both their foams certified as well as the mattress covers. Look out for certifications such as STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and CertiPUR-US® when you are on the hunt to buy the best mattress.
To ensure you get a mattress that will perform is every season, make sure the memory foam mattress you select is a cooling mattress. Regulating your temperature throughout the night will lead to better sleep.
Use eco-friendly paint
Eco-friendly paint is a big thing, and using them can help keep your family safe while reducing emissions. Planet-friendly paints are designed to significantly reduce the emission of volatile organic chemicals (VOC’s). The next time you are approaching a redesign of your bedroom, ensure you opt for eco-friendly paints.
As well as emitting lower VOC’s, the best sustainable bedroom paints do not contain the overbearing chemical small many traditional paints have. This will allow you to sleep in fresher air, which will be better for your airways and the quality of your sleep.
Use bamboo sheets
Bed sheets made from 100% bamboo fiber, are a great choice when you want to be sustainable in the bedroom. The best bed sheets should be soft and silky to touch, hypoallergenic, and cooling bed sheets.
The best bamboo sheets are made sustainable and are an excellent option for those who might suffer from allergies. Bamboo is a durable material that has a fantastic ability to get softer wash after wash.
They really stand the test of time while keeping you comfy and fresh for a perfectly balanced sleep experience.
Incorporate greenery into your bedroom
Designing your bedroom with houseplants is a great way to keep the air fresh as they can absorb certain VOCs. If everyone does their part to reduce VOCs, collectively, the air would be cleaner, thus reducing our environmental impact.
Greenery in the bedroom also looks excellent, so while you are sustainable, you can also add some beautiful bedroom decor to your bedroom that can help your bedroom space look more inviting.
Use green cleaning products
Green eco-friendly cleaning products are made from natural ingredients that are good for the environment. There are so many green cleaning products on the market that they can be purchased with convenience from the supermarket. You can take things a step further by making your own cleaning products at home! Baking soda, water, and vinegar are common everyday ingredients that make for the perfect DIY cleaner.
You can find many home cleaning alternatives online. Give it a try! You will likely save some money on expensive products while also making your house more sustainable.
If you are trying to be more sustainable in your life, why not start with the room that is used for up to to 60 hours per week – your bedroom! Making small changes can go a long way when it comes to sustainable living.
