‘Tis the season for sales and discounts. You’ve probably already seen the ads, window displays and online deals boasting the best bang for your buck. But in the spirit of giving, wouldn’t it be nice to purchase a gift that gives back? Whether it’s for yourself or a loved one, our 100% organic bed sheets do more than keep you warm.
Read on to learn how SOL Organics’ products are the ethical and environmentally conscience gifts that keep on giving.
Our Products are Fair Trade for the Farmer
Our goal for SOL Organics is to create luxurious bedding products from Fair Trade Certified™ organic cotton, ethically grown and manufactured from seed to sheet. Taking the steps to become Fair Trade Certified™ means that the farmers and workers who make our bedding are fairly compensated and protected throughout the manufacturing process.
- No child labor was used in the manufacturing of our sheets.
- Our farmers are paid a living wage.
- The cooperatives we work with promote equality for women farmers.
Since our bedding materials are naturally sourced from organic cotton, you don’t have to worry about chemicals or pesticides harming you or your family. By the same token, our farm and factory partners are spared the toxic fumes that normally accompany conventional cotton farming and manufacturing. Transparency and sustainability are of the utmost importance for our business and we are dedicated to ensuring that each of our products are made fairly, safely and ethically.
Organic Bedding Helps the Environment
Going organic is more than just a trend. With the right organic products and practices, you are saving the planet and conserving our natural resources.
Conventional cotton wreaks havoc on the environment, and is one of the planet’s most pesticide-intensive crops. The chemicals from fertilizers and pesticides tarnish the soil, with run-offs contaminating the local water supply where the cotton is grown. That affects an entire eco-system—from the soil, plants, animals and yes, people, too, are affected by chemicals from conventional farming practices.
We only use 100% organic cotton because it’s luxuriously soft while also being sustainably harvested. The cotton for our products were grown from non-GMO seeds, without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Our farming partners also employ sustainable organic farming practices, such as using rain-fed irrigation to conserve water. Who knew that cloud soft sheets could have such a positive impact on the environment?
Each Purchase Helps to Make the World Better
Unlike big box companies and our competitors in the bedding industry, we refuse to mark up what it costs for our products to be Fair Trade Certified™ and organic beyond the initial premium. Seriously. That means, when you compare our prices with that of our competitors, the price of luxury organic cotton bedding is now more affordable than ever.
Additionally, we contribute the premiums from each sale to certified charities that are close to our hearts. Our four non-profit partners include:
- Children’s Defence Fund: A non-profit, child advocacy group that champions policies to protect and defend children nationwide.
- Hope for Justice: A global, non-profit program dedicated to ending human trafficking and modern-day slavery.
- Water4: A program that puts the power in the hands of locals, by training and supporting entrepreneurs how to drill and provide water wells to their communities.
Fund for Animals: A nearly 50 year old organization that protects animals with advocacy campaigns and world-famous care facilities.
The premium from each SOL Organics purchase does more than line your bed with cloud soft sheets. When you buy a product, you also play a small role in a larger and more important cause that makes the world a better place.
You Get the Chance to Support a Small Business
SOL Organics was started in 2010 by two friends with a vision to make high quality organic and ethical bed sheets. Several years later, we are now a successful, family owned and operated business. We take pride in the work we do and the charities we support. Working on such a small scale allows us to be as transparent as possible with our customers and affords us the ability to show you where the money from each purchase is going.
Over the years, we started incorporating other organic and ethical products for those who want to zen out in a chemical-free environment. Thanks to the support from our local and online communities, we now offer additional options that enhance your organic bedding experience. Our newest organic and ethically-made products include down comforters and the only 100% Organic Bedroom Bundle, featuring our down comforter and down pillows!
Whether you’re buying for yourself or for a friend, our gifts make you feel good by giving back. They are organic for the planet. Fair trade for the farmer. And awesome for you!
