Biodegradable Bed Sheets You Can Bin Instead Of Washing

​Calling all students and backpackers. There's a new line of bed linen that you can throw away without having to fill the washing machine

If you hate the thought of washing your bed sheets with as much passion as us, this news will brighten up your day better than a Daz pod in a white wash. 

A startup company in Boston has invented disposable bed sheets which users can throw away after a few weeks if they can't be bothered popping them in the washing machine. 

Created by two mothers tired of receiving their children's laundry from university, the 'laundry-free linens' have been created especially for lazy students, campers , home health-carers backpackers and Airbnb users in mind.

'Er, but throwing away bed linen is so bad for the environment?'

Well, apparently not.

According to the Beantown Bedding, the bed sheets are made out of Tencel, a fibre made from organic compounds found in the renewable eucalyptus plant and are '100% Biobased, biodegradable and even compostable'.  

They can be thrown into a compost pile and biodegrade in less than two weeks and are claimed to be soft, breathable and less prone to wrinkles than cotton bed sheets.

The hypo-allergenic sheets are also said to be more resistant to dust mites, bacteria and mould and cost just £11.32, via the website's subscription service.

But despite the effort, expensive laundry detergent and the the trapped-inside-the-bed-sheet-help-get-me-out scenario that occurs on a fortnightly basis, we kind of like the feeling of climbing into freshly clean bed sheets.

But equally, we kind of love this eco-friendly idea. 

Decisions, decisions. 

Happy sleeping!
