domino & TreeHugger's Green List: Bedding


We all spend about one-third of our lives in bed, so it was important not to overlook clean, green bedding as a part of domino's Green List. Sumptuous feel meets beautiful patterns and colors in this section of the list; add some organic cotton and it might just be the perfect way for a TreeHugger to get some sleep. We went with a vintage look with Jan Eleni, who reuses shams and duvet covers with a colorful, floral-inspired look. Prefer the look and feel of country? Check out the wares at MaryJane's Farm, whose linens are inspired by her organic Idaho farm. For a fancier look, ABC Home's Purist collection includes luxurious silk shams and sheets. Perhaps the most important choice when picking a place to sleep is the bed itself, and Swedish company Hästens does it right. Their synthetic-free mattress features cotton ticking over a fill of horsehair, cotton, flax and wool (no harmful off-gassing there!). The handmade craftsmanship doesn't come cheap, but it might just be worth the indulgence if it'll help you sleep better and more healthily for decades to come. As always, there's more at, with the complete wrap-up on page 60 of the paper version. Stay tuned for a new addition to the list tomorrow, when we look at ways to be green while you clean. ::domino's Green List: Bedding
