As the name implies, organic towels and bedding are made from 100% organically grown fibers, meaning they were never treated with any sort of harmful chemicals. Supplying guest rooms with organic towels and bed linens is one of many ways to make each room more sustainable.
Because organic towels and bed linens are made from cotton and other fibers that are grown without toxic pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides, the impact on local ecosystems and customer health is greatly reduced. Additionally, organic linens are biodegradable as well as hypoallergenic, and they use natural dyes that are less toxic than traditional dyes. By using organic towels and bedding, you are also helping to support the organic farming community, which further increases your contribution to sustainability.
