You Can Now Shop Mindfully for Bedding and Bath Thanks to Amazon Aware – Good Housekeeping

Soft towels and sheets that lessen your impact? Yes, please.
Bringing conscious products into our homes is key for the planet and our wellbeing. Thanks to Amazon Aware, a new line of conscious home goods, clothing and beauty products from everyone’s favorite online retailer, you can outfit your home (and yourself) responsibly — without skimping on style.
The brand features certifications from Climate Pledge Friendly third parties, including Made in Green by Oeko-Tex, which indicates textiles have been tested to ensure they contain no unsafe levels of harmful substances and that they were created in socially responsible conditions. There’s also the Climate neutral label by ClimatePartner, which claims to identify the carbon footprint of a product was calculated and all associated emissions were offset through projects that help counteract the release of greenhouse gas (like planting forests in Nicaragua).
And all of that comes at the kind of budget-friendly price point for which Amazon is known. Here are some of the home finds we’re coveting.
Slip into an extra cozy state of slumber thanks to the Amazon Aware 100% Organic Cotton 300 Thread Count Sheet Set, which puts a conscious kind of comfort first. Crafted from Global Organic Textile Standard-certified cotton with a sateen weave, the set comes with two standard-sized pillowcases, a flat sheet and a fitted sheet. And you can pick from soothing colors (like blush, gray and taupe) to match your bedroom mood. Knowing this set is certified carbon neutral, you’ll sleep a little sounder.
Set a chic-meets-serene scene with the Amazon Aware 100% Organic Cotton 300 Thread Count Duvet Cover Set, which comes with a cover and pillow shams. Hotel room-worthy feels and material that minds its impact on the environment — and the working conditions for those who made it, as is required of producers of Global Organic Textile Standard-certified textiles — deliver the warm and cozies.
Plush and comfy all over, Amazon Aware 100% Organic Cotton Plush Bath Towels wrap you up like an extra snug hug. And beyond simply feeling soft and luxurious, the fabric adheres to strict standards throughout its production process. They come in a range of colors to coordinate with your bathroom.
The Amazon Aware 100% Organic Cotton Bath Mat is an eco-chic treat for your feet. Crafted from super-soft ring-spun yarn, the mat helps bring peace of mind that you’re making a smart purchase while you grab some self-care time.
Paying attention to the footprint of your products also means minding your toilet paper — otherwise all your attempts to be green will go right down the drain. According to the Natural Resource Defense Council, toilet paper made from trees has three times the climate impact as toilet paper from recycled materials. That’s why Amazon Aware Toilet Paper, made from 100 percent recycled paper, is a great way to keep a conscious home on a roll.
Don’t forget to be picky about the products you use on yourself. The Amazon Aware bath and beauty collection includes everything you need to wash, rinse and repeat — in packaging designed with the future in mind. Formulas are EWG Verified — so they’re made without ingredients that the Environmental Working Group has identified as concerning — and certified “climate neutral” by ClimatePartner a third party that calculates a product’s carbon footprint and then help offset by way of investing in global tree planting projects. Plus they come in 100 percent recycled aluminum containers, which can be refilled, reused and recycled. Now that’s a beautiful thing.
