let’s save all the waterAs a Colorado company, we’re all too aware of the toll droughts can take on the environment and our community. That’s why we’re dedicated to choosing water-conserving materials and processes wherever we can.
So, water we doing exactly–ahem, what are we doing (this is no time for wordplay)–to combat the water crisis?
Closed-loop systemIn order to make our signature Eucalyptus Lyocell fabric, we use a closed-loop system. Nearly 100% of the water is recovered and reused throughout this sustainable, cyclical manufacturing process.
Eucalyptus LyocellOur Eucalyptus Lyocell sheets require 150 liters of water per set, while conventionally-grown cotton sheets use about 4,000 liters per set. That’s an estimated 96% reduction in water usage. That's a lot of water.
We use organic cotton in our flannel sheets because it uses up to 91% less water than conventionally-grown cotton. The vast majority of organic cotton crops are watered via rainfall and rotated regularly to better retain water.
Conventional cotton not only uses a lot more water, but it also pollutes the water it uses due to heavy pesticide use. Not cool, cotton.
We’re using Talalay latex in our new mattress (yeah, we made a mattress). Talalay’s multi-stage washer is engineered to minimize the amount of water consumed without reducing the quality of the finished product.
Plus, the cover is made from 100% Eucalyptus Lyocell and we already talked about how considerate it is when it comes to water usage. Very cool, Eucalyptus.

what you can do to save water
wash your sheets less often
No, for real.
The average washing machine uses about 19 gallons of water per load, or nearly 6,000 gallons per year. Because your eucalyptus sheets quickly wick away moisture and, therefore, create a hostile environment for dust mites, bacteria, and other icky things, your sheets stay cleaner for longer. That means you don't need to wash them as often. (But, like, still wash them every couple of weeks, please.)
Not only will you save oodles of water, but your sheets will last longer (washers are notoriously tough on fabrics).
