What makes bedding more or less green? Organic cotton is a plus, as are locally sourced materials and fair labor practices. Certifications from GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and Oeko-Tex (a standard regulating chemical-free raw materials and production processes) are also helpful in verifying a product's material composition. Here are 10 sources for organic bedding under $150, each of them with varying degrees of certification and sourcing listed in brief below.
