Typically, one of the most crucial aspects of our well-being is overlooked when it comes to striving for a healthier lifestyle – what could that be? Well, sleep. As we become more conscious of our environmental impact, it’s essential to extend our eco-friendly mindset to every facet of our lives, including the way we sleep, our sleep practices, what we use when we go to sleep, and so on. Doing this not only provides a positive impact on the environment, but it assists in enhancing our personal well-being too. Understand the ‘know how’ of eco sleep practices by reading more below!


Green Sleep: How to Implement It


Choose Organic Bedding

When it comes to your bedding, opt for things made from organic and sustainable materials such as TENCELTM Lyocell, organic hemp and organic linen. These materials are grown without harmful pesticides and require less water and energy to produce. It also keeps your skin happier. Additionally, they are biodegradable and have a lower environmental impact. When it comes to the sleep environment, TencelTM is ideal with its moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial properties.

Eco-Friendly Mattresses

On the topic of bedding, consider investing in a mattress made from similarly sustainable materials, or an orthopaedic support mattress like our Wenacel. Many mattresses on the market today are crafted from sustainable materials, making it easier for us to spend our money on quality items. Look for certifications with organisations like the German Furniture Quality Association (DGM) that align with the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, to ensure the mattress meets rigorous environmental and social criteria.

Energy-Efficient Sleep Environment

Create an eco sleep-friendly atmosphere by optimising your bedroom’s energy efficiency as well – this part can often go unnoticed. To do this, look to use energy-saving light bulbs, remember to turn off electronic devices when not in use, and maintain a comfortable room temperature to reduce the need for excessive heating or cooling.

Natural Sleep Aids

Embrace natural sleep aids to promote restful sleep without the need for synthetic substances. Our Pedimol 110 and Wenabalm, both offer calming properties that can help induce sleep and relax the body. Use eco-friendly diffusers and opt for sustainably sourced essential oils.

Reducing Light Pollution

In our modern world, artificial lighting is everywhere. This type of light has the potential to disrupt our circadian rhythm and affect the quality of our sleep, which is a common issue among a lot of office workers. To maintain your circadian rhythm, consider installing blackout curtains in your bedroom to minimise external light pollution and use low-wattage, energy-efficient bulbs for your bedside lamps – this is going to put your body at ease, rest your mind, and allow you to get a better night’s sleep.

Mindful Consumption

When it comes to choosing bedroom furniture, practice mindful consumption – which can be tricky to do if you’re someone who loves decor. Look for furniture made from reclaimed or sustainably harvested wood and recycled materials as well. Consider second-hand or vintage pieces to reduce the demand for new resources and minimise the environmental impact of production.

Zero-Waste Nighttime Routine

Another way to elevate your eco sleep is to take a look at your nighttime routine to see if you can identify opportunities for waste reduction. There was a major wave of changing toothbrushes to more eco-friendly options and it isn’t too late, biodegradable dental floss, and sustainable skincare products. Refrain from using disposable items and move to reusable alternatives wherever possible.
