Outrageously Soft Sheets that are Ethical? Welcome to Your Best Sleep Ever
There are so many virtuous things about these linens, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason NOT to buy them.
As the old adage goes, if it's good enough for three living Presidents, it's good enough for you. Okay, we made that up, but here's the thing, Boll & Branch sheets are actually good enough for three Presidents—Clinton and both Bushes sleep on them nightly. (And if the election continues the way it is, there might just be another President Clinton catching some z’s on this bedding.) If a presidential seal of approval isn’t a selling point, what is?
Well, there’s the fact that the sheets are also organic and outrageously soft. And they’re moderately-priced at around $250. Oh, and they are ethically-sourced—meaning that Boll & Branch’s founders, the darling husband-and-wife duo Missy and Scott Tannen based in New Jersey, actually know where each ounce of cotton used in their sheets, duvets, throws and towels is sourced from. Seems like a no-brainer, but as it turns out, most major textile retailers have little knowledge about the working conditions of the farms and mills they do business with—and oftentimes they are unknowingly supporting companies that pay slave wages amidst unsafe work conditions rife with toxins.
With Boll & Branch, the Tannens are on a mission to make the industry ethical and transparent. They work with five Fair Trade-certified mills in India to create their products, and in doing so, they are supporting more than 1,000 factory workers and 10,000 farmers and their families—paying them three-times more the national average and supplying them with medical benefits.
Okay, so you want one more feel-good reason to buy these sheets? Boll & Branch gives a portion of all proceeds to Not for Sale, an anti-human trafficking organization. Remember that good night’s sleep we promised? You’re welcome.
