Few people think about the environment when choosing linens. The reality is that some traditional linen products are not eco-friendly. The manufacturing process uses large amounts of energy and sends harmful emissions into the air. Eco-Smart is looking to change this. The manufacturer has created a line of linens that have unique and environmentally responsible features. It is helpful to understand exactly what Eco-Smart linen products are.

Created From Recycled Materials

Eco-Smart products are made from all recycled materials. They use a type of fiber that is actually created from plastic bottles. The plastic is spun into fine fibers that can be used to create a wide range of linens from pillows to blankets. This is important for the environment because around 14 bottles are used to make a single sheet or pillow. These plastic bottles would have ended up in a landfill or in the ocean otherwise. The recycled materials can reduce the carbon footprint of any location over time.

Durable and Long Lasting

Eco-Smart linen products are durable and long lasting. This is because the special polyester fibers are much stronger over time than traditional fibers. They will easily resist wear and damage. Washing the linens can actually restore their feel and appearance. This is helpful because it means that the linens will last for a longer time and will need to be replaced less frequently. Longer lasting linens mean lower overhead. An added environmental benefit is that fewer resources will be used in the future to create new linens to replace the old ones since they last for so long.

Resistant To Mold and Mildew

The plastic used to create the linens along with a special treatment make some products highly resistant to mold and mildew. The treatment of the fibers prevents these types of microbes from taking root inside of pillows and other linens. This keeps rooms looking and smelling very clean. It also prevents contamination between guests. The linens will not need to be specially treated or thrown away because of unsightly mold growth. Switching to Eco-Smart linens with the ClearFresh treatment can make every bed cleaner and safer.
