“Invest in your shoes and your sheets because if you’re not in one, you’re in the other” as the old English saying goes. And we’d say by ‘invest’ that means making choices that are not just kind to you, but are kind to the planet too!
When it comes to the sheets (and mattresses and beds), enter Naturalmat. Based in the banks of the River Exe, in Devon, this company is producing handcraft organic bedding for adults and kids. What they use: natural, organic and renewable fibres. What they don’t use: any artificial chemicals or synthetics.
And because it’s B Corps month, we should point out that they are a B Corp. They obtained an overall score of 96.3 in their B Corp certification because their whole business is run with a particular focus on sustainability. This includes actions like sourcing organic wool directly from local farmers, installing solar panels on the roof of their workshop or moving to 100% renewable energy, and developing innovative plastic-free packaging. All of which are contributing to a winning combo for both comfortable and sustainable sleeping devices.
And if you’re in the market for a new mattress, this could make a difference: our friends at Naturalmat are offering Friday 5 readers a 15% discount with the code GOODBUSINESS15, valid until 31st May. Yes, reading your Friday 5 up right to the end was even more worth it today than usual. Look no further for the most feel good of sleeps.
