Veganism is more popular than ever in 2019, and the movement goes way behind dropping animal products in diets. In fact, many people are now looking to make the immediate environment around them more vegan-friendly too. Especially where they settle down to sleep each night.
Your bedroom is your sanctuary, and opting to make it more environmentally-friendly can actually be both cost-effective and stylish, not to mention healthier for you. The popularity of Natural Fibre mattresses has grown with the vegan movement in recent years. As Luxury Mattresses that use Natural Plant Fibres are far more breathable, responsive, durable, comforting and supportive than synthetic alternatives.
However, your mattress isn’t the only aspect of your bedroom that you can make vegan-friendly. And we wanted to go through some quick ways that you can build a more sustainable sleep environment.
Leave out the leather
The production of ‘authentic’ leather products has a huge negative impact on the environment. The chemicals released as by-product after manufacturing can pollute nearby water sources, not to mention the emission of toxic fumes into the air. It’s no wonder then that millions of people are opting for vegan-friendly faux leather.
High-quality faux leather products have become a massive market these days. Thanks to the fact that they’re often cheaper, feel just as good, and are far better for the environment than real leather. Choosing faux materials over real leathers for your bedroom furniture for example, will be far more sustainable and better on your bank balance too.
Use eco-friendly decoration
There’s been an increasing awareness of how many products are created ethically. And this also applies to the products you might use to decorate your bedroom. Everything from the paint on your walls, to the glue that was used when your furniture was put together, may all contain animal products.
It’s important to know that even the products that you use to decorate your bedroom can be made more sustainably and more ethically. Simply check the packaging, on anything from brushes to paint cans, for vegan-friendly labels before you purchase.
Pick plants instead
Of course plants help the environment, we all know this. Introducing more greenery into your home can never be a bad thing. Not only do plants mean more oxygen in the air, they also aesthetically enhance your bedroom too, by making your sleep space effortlessly more stylish.
Plants also provide a solid basis for a huge amount of sustainable, vegan-friendly products. Many environmentally-friendly furniture pieces and other essential bedroom items can be crafted from Natural Plant Fibres, such as Bamboo. Explore the market yourself, and open your eyes to what’s available. Before you know it, your bedroom will be injected with an incredibly unique and modern aesthetic.
Get more from your mattress
Speaking of Natural Plant Fibres – it makes much more sense to choose a Luxury Mattress that uses these magnificent materials, instead of synthetic or animal based fibres. Natural Fibres have the ability to continually replenish themselves over time. As the plants responsible for producing them can continually be grown and harvested.
Choosing a Luxury Pocket Sprung Natural Fibre Mattress that’s been crafted using some of these fantastic fibres, is an ideal way of making your bedroom more sustainable. While vastly improving the quality of your sleep at the same time. The materials used to make a vegan-friendly mattress help to absorb harmful C02 and vastly reduce any organic waste produced during processing.
They are extremely effective at regulating your body temperature, and can wick away moisture from your body, which helps to keep you cool and calm at night.
