As our concern for the environment increases, you may be wondering how you can do your bit to "Go Green". Completely cutting out meat from your diet might be too much of a drastic decision, and walking to work everyday may be unrealistic if your commute is a 45 minute drive. But, there are some simple steps that you can take to save the planet, starting at home and by changing some of your habits. In this article, we've compiled a few recommendations on how you can make a small, but significant difference!
Our Luxury Woodsilk Tencel 300 Thread Dount Duvet Cover is made from innovative Tencel fabric. It’s an advanced lyocell material that is a more sustainable cotton alternative. However, it doesn’t compromise on quality as its still breathable and silky-smooth to the touch.
It also absorbs moisture more effectively than cotton and keeps your skin pleasantly cool, ensuring you always get a great night's sleep.
Woodsilk bedlinen can be washed at 60°C in a domestic machine but isn’t suitable for commercial laundries.
With sustainability in mind, we have created a luxurious pillow made from recycled materials whilst not compromising on luxury.This is the perfect option to help you do your bit for the planet.
The advanced Dacron Comforel Eco filling of our Luxury Just Like Down Pillow is made from recycled materials to offer a shape-retaining, comfortable and non-allergenic pillow that replicates the feeling of pure down.
We import this filling from Germany then hand fill and stitch the 233-thread-count cotton cases in Scotland, meaning that these pillows have one of the lowest levels of transport miles and carbon emissions of any available.
These hotel quality pillows are perfect for your holiday cottage, hotel or bed and breakfast.
Just like our luxurious pillows, our Luxury Just Like Down Mattress Topper is made with sustainable materials and we're proud to say that the origin of every fibre bale is fully traceable, and the process of creating the unique filling of Dacron Comforel Eco from recycled bottles has been recognised by international ecological bodies.
The 7cm deep filling is incredibly soft and comfortable and will help you have a restful night’s sleep. If you’d like to see more of our sustainable bedding products, click here to see our full range.

A waste divider is a simple and easy way to sort out your waste from your recyclables! It’s ideal for bedroom bins, with the larger section of the bin being used for bulkier items like bottles and cans, and the smaller section is perfect for general waste!
This is such an easy way to make a difference and takes no time at all to install.
Coasters are perfect for adding a touch of class and style to a room, especially slate ones.
However, slate coasters can have a profound impact on the environment, often with huge quarries being required to mine the materials necessary for the manufacture of them. That’s why our Eco Coasters are a great replacement!
They are an eco-friendly solution and are made from recycled paper packaging - the resulting material is very solid and robust, with the appearance of natural slate, making them a perfect product for helping you to go green!
