Eco-friendly sleepwear, like organic cotton pajamas, is gentle on your skin and the planet. Plus, opting for organic cotton helps animals and insects, especially pollinators like bees and butterflies.
As I wrote about in my post “Organic Cotton vs. Non-Organic Cotton,” the cultivation of commercially grown cotton uses a ton of pesticides and insecticides. Around the world, farmers use just 2 percent of the world’s crop land to plant cotton. However, globally, they use 24 percent of the insecticides and 11 percent of the pesticides when they grow it.
In addition to organic cotton, you’ll find pajamas here that are made with other eco-friendly materials, such as natural linen and hemp. You’ll also find a few styles in eco-friendly synthetic materials, like lyocell, which goes by the brand name Tencel. Unlike traditional rayon, Lenzing makes Tencel with sustainably-sourced wood that’s processed in a way that recovers chemicals used in the production process. The company uses less water and energy when manufacturing Tencel compared to making traditional rayon and cotton.
