The water based interior paints from Claire are zero VOC meaning they're free from toxic, carbon based solvents that are found in most other paints.

Their containers, trays and liners are made from recycled materials. The paint is shipped directly to you, with shipping and packing materials made from 100% recycled paperboards. Their factory is energy efficient and treats and recycles water for use.
Over 35 years ago, the pioneers at ECOS set out to revolutionize an industry. This was long before the paint industry started to talk about VOCs, but well after the time when concerned consumers knew about the issues chemical pollution cause. They manufacture their zero VOC non toxic paints in South Carolina, USA and you can order them here.

When SOL organics was looking for a factory to produce their eco friendly bedding they had certain non-negotiable requirements that included third party certifications by FLO, GOTS, Oeko Tex and Fair Trade. That means their factory partners make a living wage, and do not employ children for labor. (Sounds obvious but it is not.) Sol organics bedding is made from 100% organic long-staple cotton, grown from non-GMO cottonseeds. You can buy both their sustainable bedding as well as their pillows and comforters here.
Buffy is on a mission to help you live comfortably, without making our planet uncomfortable. They use earth-friendly materials for their planet friendly bedding. Their signature bedding is made from e eucalyptus fiber that uses 76% less water than cotton, and no toxic pesticides. Their linen is made from camp not flax-not only does hemp absorb 5x more CO2 from the air than trees, but it’s naturally resistant to pests promotes biodiversity, and even improves soil over time—unlike flax linen, which depletes it. The extra-long staple fibers (which range between 4-7 feet in length), makes it naturally stronger and more durable than other fabrics! Buffy also offsets all their CO2 emissions.
