Sustained Sanctuary

People often refer to bedrooms as their sanctuary within a home: an area where comfort and personal style is paramount. Here you should put special thought into how you can strike the right balance between being green and being comfortable.

If you desire guilt-free yet overly luxurious nightwear and lingerie then small, ethical business Siku Moja, from £25 (AED118) can provide the ultimate in sustainable loungewear. Expect beautifully crafted pieces from organic bamboo and cotton, which are not only long-lasting but come with an unrivalled ethical supply chain through Tanzania, India and Wales.

Where you lay your head is the upmost importance and to ensure a deep conscience-clearing sleep, consider a green mattress with organic cotton bedding. Avocado Mattresses, from $950 (AED3,490) are made from natural latex, harvested from rubber sap trees in Asia resulting in a non-toxic and VOC free mattress. This latex is also biodegradable unlike many other mattresses, which are continually adding to landfill. Layer your bed with luxurious, organic cotton sheets and blankets made from sustainable wool.
