Have you been looking for ways to incorporate eco-friendly living into your bedding? Here at Brightly, we definitely have been looking for sustainable alternatives and were so excited about Sheets & Giggles (LOL) when we discovered them.
Their breezy sheets and comforters made from eucalyptus-based lyocell require less water than other natural fibers like cotton during production. Opting for lyocell over cotton can save up to 96% of the water and 30% of the energy that would have been used to create cotton sheets. They’re also perfect for hot sleepers making this purchase an eco-friendly way to stay cool during the summer. Not to mention, lyocell just feels so much softer on the skin.
Another reason we believe in this brand is their dedication towards doing their part for the environment, something often non-existent in other big name-brand companies. You won’t find any insecticides or pesticides used in Sheets & Giggles products or any plastic in their packaging (which is made from recyclable materials!).
Beyond their initial more environmentally friendly materials, we also love how they offset their carbon emissions by planting a tree for every sheet set sold and genuinely want to provide for the larger community. With their #Give2Sheets initiative, if you donate any old sheets, they will donate them to homeless shelters for you and provide 10% off your next order. They also provide 15% off discounts for members of the military, first responders, medical professionals, teachers, and students.
Our Founders Recommend Sheets & Giggles
At Brightly we never recommend anything we haven’t tried ourselves and haven’t worked with the brands to vet their claims and certifications. Despite their punny name, Sheets and Giggles is the real deal that has totally shaken up how we approach our sheets. Here are a couple of our thoughts about whether the sheets and comforters live up to the hype.
From Brightly co-founder Laura Alexander Wittig
My first foray into eco-friendly bedding was when I discovered what lyocell fabric was, and ever since, I’ve been hunting for the perfect eucalyptus-based sheets. To go with my overall aesthetic of neutral, classic, and comfy, I chose to try the Sheets & Giggles original white sheets along with their eucalyptus comforter. I’ve been snoozing with them for months now and they’ve held up super well, even after lots of tugging (I move around a ton during sleep).
From Brightly co-founder Liza Moiseeva:
Sheets & Giggles’ sheets hit the perfect mix of soft, cool, and cozy all at the same time for me. I (virtually) met their founder, Colin, back in February and fell in love with the ethos of the company right away. Their products are made from eucalyptus which is my favorite plant ever (I always have eucalyptus oils and sprays around the house) and it turns out that it’s also an eco-friendly material (it uses up to 96% less water than cotton and 30% less energy).
I opted for their original purple sheets and immediately fell in love with them! I tell the truth when I say that I haven’t slept in any other sheets since March! And since I know that I don’t wash the sheets as often as I probably should (yikes, I know) I am now eyeing their gorgeous navy sheets too. I have never had dark sheets before but now I think I prefer them since they instantly give a cozy, sleepy feel to my bedroom! Their eucalyptus comforter is the cherry on top for me. It’s lightweight, doesn’t make me hot, but is warm enough for chilly San Francisco summers.
I’ve recommended S&G to all my friends now and can’t wait for them to start offering more products!
Overall, we recommend Sheets & Giggles for their fun approach to taking care of the larger community and our planet through their give-back initiatives and sustainable products. If you’ve been putting off getting new sheets to replace your raggedy old ones or want something a little more comfortable to sleep on since we’re all spending more time at home, give yourself permission to laugh and peruse Sheets & Giggles.
