Benefits of organic cotton bedding
A good day always starts the night before, with a good night’s sleep. We all know a night of tossing and turning is closely followed by a coffee-fuelled day, nodding off at the table and heading back to bed before the sun even sets.
One way to ensure a sleep is uninterrupted is to make the bed the best it can be. This includes having the right mattress, bedding and bed linen for yacht owner and guests. You might not think that bed linen can affect how well can be our sleep, so we’re going to fill you in on why you should be treating them to some cozy cotton bed linen to reap the bedtime benefits.
Here are some reasons why you should choose organic cotton bedding:
1. Happier Planet
Organic sheets are good for the planet. Conventionally farmed cotton has taken a huge toll on the health of the planet. It is responsible for a quarter of the worldwide use of insecticides. Some of the most dangerous pesticides are used to promote the growth of cotton which can then enter the food chain through water run-off. Making the choice to use only organic cotton helps support those farmers who are committed to growing a high-quality product without the use of these toxic methods. It also serves as an incentive to switch to organic methods for those farmers who are using conventional farming techniques. When they make the switch to organic methodology it improves the health of the farmers and their families by preventing local water contamination and improving the overall quality of the land.
2. Higher Quality
One of the reasons organic cotton provides a higher quality textile is in the way the crop is harvested. Conventional growers will use a harvesting machine that mixes the cotton with the oil and seeds of the plant. Harsh chemicals are then utilized to remove the other parts and clean the cotton. An organic farmer will pick the cotton by hand which provides a cleaner product that doesn’t require harsh additives. The cotton is cleaned using hot water and vegetable-based soaps rather than chemicals. Choosing organic bedding is a way to incorporate a greater environmental awareness into your everyday life while also improving your own quality of sleep.
3. It’s breathable
The pure and natural nature of cotton means that when used in bed linen, it is breathable. This is essential as it will absorb the body heat during sleep leaving your yacht owner and guests' body cool and dry. If you’ve ever slept in bedding from man-made materials, you’ll be familiar with that feeling of waking up hot and sticky during the summer months. Yet, with a cotton bed set, they’ll sleep soundly as it naturally ventilates.
4. Stay comfortable all year round
Pure Cotton bedding is popular for its multi-purpose ability to keep the body cool in the summer and keep it warm throughout the winter by absorbing and retaining the body heat.
5. Great for sensitive skin
They'll never get a good night’s sleep with irritated skin. Organic cotton sheets are great if yacht owners or guests have sensitive skin due to cotton’s naturally hypoallergenic credentials. So, you can bid farewell to any irritation or itchiness, and say hello to an improved quality of sleep.
6. Invest in wellbeing
There are numerous benefits to wellbeing as a result of getting plenty of sleep. Whilst high-quality organic cotton bedding can be pricier than man-made alternatives, it is well worth the investment. Especially when you consider natural cotton bed linen can last twice as long as man-made bedding, meaning you won’t need to replace it as often.
7. Luxury every day
Keeping classic cotton bed linen looking great every day doesn’t have to be hard work. The cotton’s classic style means it suits any yacht from contemporary style to traditional stately yachts.
So choosing the right bedding is up to you, if you want to take the correct decision and offer a great and comfortable night sleep to yacht owners and guests and also choose what's best for the Earth, organic cotton is the way.
