Clean Dreams

Beantown Bedding co-founders, Joan Ripple and Kirsten Lambert, came up with the idea for disposable sheets when they learned that their college-aged kids rarely, if ever, washed their bedding while away at school. The thought of dust mites, bacteria, and mold making themselves at home in their sons' and daughters' beds made Joan and Kirsten’s skin crawl. With their kids’ health and hygiene in mind, they created laundry free eco-friendly sheet sets that can be used for days or weeks and then discarded. Beantown Bedding’s unique Eucalyptus/Tencel blend and clean manufacturing process make the sheets not only soft, durable, and hypoallergenic, but biodegradable as well. When the sheets get dirty, just throw them away , or better yet, put them in a compost pile, and they'll be returned to nature in as little as two weeks. The appeal of disposable sheets extends well beyond college campuses. For overnight camp, home health care, and vacation property rentals, Beantown Bedding is a clean and simple solution that lets you and your family rest easy.

    We're Joan & Kirsten, the founders of Beantown Bedding.

    When our kids came home after their first semester of college we learned something disturbing: college kids hate washing their sheets which can lead to an accumulation of sweat, bacteria, germs, and dead skin cells that attract dust mites.

    With this realization as the catalyst, we discovered all of the downsides there are to washing and drying sheets, namely the amount of time it takes as well as the astounding amount of water and energy we use in the process. We decided to find a better alternative for our kids, and for the environment, which is how Beantown Bedding and our Laundry Free Linens were born.

    We are so excited to be included with the amazing products currently on The Grommet. Thanks for having us!

    What a great idea! Why hasn't someone thought of this sooner?! All beds should have these. Hotels, colleges, camps, hospitals. This is a no-brainer. Can't wait till my order arrives! :)

    Are we not ruining our plant with toilet paper, paper towels, baby diapers, plastic bags, paper plates, cups and on & on? Now use & throw away sheets!!!!! NOT!!! Reusable fabric, soap & water is the lest harmful to the future of our children & Earth.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your input here. We truly appreciate the values that our community stand by every day. These sheets are biodegradable and compostable, something that is important to the founders. Today's Grommet is a problem solver but we know that not all of our Grommets are right for everyone.

    Dear Guest,

    The beauty of Laundry-Free Linens® is that they have less impact on the environment at every stage of the life cycle. They’re made from rapidly renewable resources and are USDA certified as 100% Biobased®. The TENCEL® fiber uses 20 times less water and 70% less land than cotton or synthetic fibers and is processed in a clean manufacturing environment. Each load of laundry avoided can save 40 gallons of water and 7 kwh of energy. They are not only biodegradable, but also easily recycled. And the best part is that they are compostable and can fully return to nature in as little as 2 weeks!

    As with the compressed washcloths, these sheets are innovative and probably very convenient, I would not buy them because they are make in Pakistan. The problem with this country is that we no longer manufacture much of anything. The only way to put our citizens to work is to bring manufacturing back to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!!! The other issue I see with these is that I (and I assume most others) would not spend $35.00 +/- for something to be used once and then throw it away. I do think they could be handy in some circumstances such as travel or camping

    Hi Susan,

    Thanks for your input here. We often wish that it was an easier process to have more products manufactured here in the U.S. as do our Makers. While it is certainly possible at times, the feasibility often isn't there for various reasons. Thanks for sharing your values here with us.
