West Elm Just Launched Eco-Friendly Hemp Bedding (And There’s a 25% Off Sale!)
With all the attention that hemp and CBD are getting in the beauty and health industries, it makes sense that the trend would come to the home sphere, too. Ever since it became legal to grow hemp in the U.S. a few years ago, the plant (which is in the same family as marijuana but contains little to no THC) has quickly grown in popularity. Hemp fibers are an eco-friendly alternative to other materials like cotton, and environmentally-conscious retailers are taking notice—including West Elm, which just launched its first hemp bedding collection today.
So what’s so great about hemp? The main draw is its sustainability. Hemp is a weed, so it needs little water to grow and doesn’t require pesticides. It absorbs carbon dioxide and grows at a fast rate, plus every part of the hemp plant can be used for something. It’s also incredibly durable (and breathable!), so bedding and clothing made from hemp tends to last longer than their cotton counterparts.
