Happy Earth Day, Champions!
“If you like puns, sleeping and sustainability, potentially even in that order – Sheets and Giggles is the brand for you!” A perfect way to introduce this guest and his company! Today, I speak with Colin McIntosh, Founder and CEO of Sheets and Giggles (and, yes that’s a pun), and #Champion of Sleeping Sustainably.
Sheets and Giggles makes sustainable, 400-thread count sateen bed sheets out of Eucalyptus trees, which don’t use insecticides or pesticides. Compared with cotton, the production of their eucalyptus lyocell requires 96% less water and 30 % less energy! And if those numbers aren’t compelling enough, their sales pitch is simple: “Our Eucalyptus Lyocell sheets are softer, more breathable, and more sustainable than both cotton and bamboo.” And they’re bed serious. 
Listen to this episode to find out about:

Their simple solutions to a wasteful textile industry;
How the 3-year-old company pledges some of its profits to a wide variety of charities (including 20% of every sale to COVID–19 Emergency Relief Funds);
How Colin came up with the pun title!

I hope you enjoy the episode!
