Can choosing new bedding make a difference?

We think yes! Many of the fabrics, furnishings and fiberfill you find in your home are derived from oil We've changed that. Now you can replace many home items with products made with Ingeo fiber, an ingenious new material made from plants instead of oil. Making Ingeo fiber uses 50% less non-renewable energy and emits 75% less greenhouse gases than traditional fibers (1).

Choosing Ingeo fiber for a new generation of mattresses, pillows, blankets and drapes means taking a step in the right direction. Ingeo is a material with a conscience that can help you change the world even if it's just one pillow at a time.
