If you’re outfitting a new bedroom or looking to upgrade your current set-up to something better for the environment, that’s also built to last, we’ve found the best products and companies for a sustainable–and chic–bedroom. Of course, when it comes to furniture, the most eco-friendly choice is to thrift or look for gently used pieces, rather than buying something brand-new. Check out Facebook Marketplace, a local antique shop, or even Craigslist for some great finds. And for everything else, including a stylish robe and comfortable bedding, these companies are committed to helping you do a little better for the planet while you catch some Zs.

You spend about a third of your life between the sheets, so why not go the extra step to make sure you’re sleeping in something good for you and for the planet. Avocado’s Organic Superfine Suvin Cotton Sheets are exceptionally soft (thanks to a 1,000 thread count) and are made from organic certified Indian Cotton.
