Huut Organic Egyptian Cotton Sheets Review

Huut Organic Egyptian Cotton Sheets Review

I’m so excited to share my Huut organic Egyptian cotton sheets review with you!  I’ve tried many organic sheets in my day but never Egyptian cotton sheets that were organic.  Sheets are one thing that needs to be detoxed quickly if possible.  The toxic load really adds up over time.  Keep reading to hear of the toxic burden conventional sheets pose.

Since we spend about a 1/3 of our life in bed it’s important to know what were sleeping on.  Cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops.  Being doused with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.  However, that’s not the only thing we should be concerned about.  Sheets often contain formaldehyde, and toxic dyes too.  There are also toxic softeners that are used now on bedding, creating a recipe for a toxic sleep experience!

What to look for when buying organic sheets?

  • Look for sheets that are certified organic by the GOTS- Global Organic Textile Standard.  For more info. on GOTS click here. This standard ensures the product is made without any toxic chemicals and that at least 90% of fibers are organic.  Also, no child or slave labor.  It’s peace of mind when buying the sheets if you see this label.  It means the sheets were made using pure and clean standards.
  • Avoid sheets or blankets that say “Wrinkle Resistant”, “Easy Care”, or “Permanent Press.”  These words indicate that formaldehyde resin was used in the process and it will NOT rinse out.
  • BE AWARE- just because a sheet set says “organic cotton” does not mean they’re certified organic.  It may indicate the cotton was grown organically but after that the fabric was processed with toxic chemicals.
  • Look for Oeko- Tex Certified Sheets.  These sheets may not be grown organically but they are tested for unhealthy chemicals in the final product.  These often tend to be a little less expensive and easier to find. For more on Oeko- Tex Certification click here.
Huut Organic Egyptian Cotton natural bedding review

Huut Organic Egyptian cotton natural sheet and review.

About Huut-

When I first learned about Huut I was excited to learn that not only are they organic but also OEKO-TEX certified and Cotton Egypt & Egyptian Cotton Association Certified.  Now if you’re like me you might be wondering what the last certification means- because I definitely did.  I looked them up and was excited to learn all about their strict standards and procedures.  You can read all about the certification here.

What makes Egyptian cotton different then regular cotton?  Well, it’s hand picked!  So you can be sure that your getting the most pure product.  The sheets also have 80s long staple fibers which give you the softest and most sturdy cotton in the world.  These are the best of the best!

Huut really wanted to create products that not only were great for people but also the earth.  While at the same time providing a superior product that creates a luxurious sleeping experience.  Something I can get behind!  I also love their mission in giving back.  This is a quote from their website.

For every sale made on a Huüt sheet or duvet, we donate to Feed My Starving Children.We know you give a Huüt to, so thank you for joining us!

Another reason I love supporting this company!  Also, they have a 30 day money back guarantee too. So if you don’t like your sheets for whatever reason you can return them.  They also offer free shipping! I mean does it get any better?

My Review-

I was so impressed with these sheets the minute I opened the box!  They are so soft and I couldn’t wait to wash them and put them on my bed.  Well, let’s just say they did not disappoint.  The softness and overall feel is amazing!  I’ve never had Egyptian cotton sheets before but now I know what all the fuss is about.  You can really feel the quality with the 300 thread count in the sheets.  Plus, I love the smoothness I get from the sateen finish.  Am I turning into a sheet snob?  I don’t know but my husband and I are both addicted!  I also love knowing my skin isn’t soaking up any pesticides or weird chemicals since they’re organic.  I can have my cake and eat it too!

If you’ve been looking for sheets that are not only organic but also seriously SO soft then I would snag these!  These would make a great Christmas gift too.  Huut hooked you up with a great coupon code!  Use: GGG25 for 25% off- now that’s a deal!  Shop Huut Organic Egyptian Sheets here!

I wanted to share my top 10 favorite Natural and Sustainable Gift Ideas for 2018 in hopes that it would help to bring awareness to the countless companies and small businesses that are really creating serious positive impact and change.  I love this quote by Anne Lappe-

Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want.

I couldn’t agree more.  Talking about the problem is good but putting our money where our mouth is creates true impact.  Never discount your small gesture, purchase towards a business that’s doing it right.  It all counts and matters.  The more people bring awareness and spend money on natural, sustainable and ethical goods, the more the industry will move in that direction.  Another quote I love is-

If it’s to be it’s up to me. 

Let’s all start thinking about what we can do, because it all counts. Check out my top 10 natural/sustainable favorites below and then be sure to download the other guides to get a jump on the Christmas shopping!

Top 10 Favorite Natural & Sustainable Gift Ideas For 2018-

  1. Everlane Women’s Apparel When it comes to ethical clothing brands Everlane takes the cake.  This brand goes above and beyond to ensure their products not only are ethically made but that they’re completely transparent with their customer from start to finish.  The quality is impeccable too.  It’s time to start bringing light to what is happening to the clothing industry and share brands that are pioneering sustainable clothing. Check out Everlane Women’s Apparel
  2. Earth Easy Denim Apron-Nothing gets you in the spirit of cooking like a snazzy new apron!  This one is made with hemp and a blend of organic cotton.  Cooking our food is one the best investments we can make in our health and our environment!  Less food wrappers, less waste.  No too mention the amazing health benefits our bodies receive when we cook our food.  Our kids will thank us later in life as they had a foundation of real food to grow up on.  If you or someone you know needs some motivation to get back in the kitchen I suggest grabbing this apron. It might just bring out a little Marth Stewart in you!  Check out the Earth Easy Denim Apron here!
  3. Joco Glass Reusable Coffee Cup- I was on the hunt for the longest time for a legit reusable nontoxic coffee cup- think I finally found it.  I didn’t want one that was made from stainless steel because stainless steel can leach heavy metals at times- particularly with hot beverages.  I also didn’t want ceramic since many ceramics can contain lead.  I was on the search for glass and I found it!  No plastic either!  Plus, I find my hot drink will taste funky if I use stainless steel.  I’m not perfect when it comes to always bringing my cup with me if I get a hot beverage somewhere but I want to be better!  Even if one person bought 3 coffees a week and used a reusable cup it would save up to 156 cups a year!  Think it doesn’t matter?  It does.  Check out the Joco cup here!
  4. Marley Monsters- I’m pretty sure we could all conserve a little more when it comes to using less paper, plastic, etc.  Marley Monsters is a company I started to buy things from years ago and I love how much they’ve grown!  They have everything from reusable paper towels, cloth napkins, cloth wipes for babies, facial rounds, nursing pads- one of my faves.  I can’t recommend their products enough!  Investing in reusable products creates less waste but also saves you money in the long run.  What a cool gift to give someone to get them started on using less.  Check out Marley Monsters here!
  5. WillowCoDesign Shirts- I found this cute shop on Etsy and fell in love with all their organic t-shirts for babies and kids.  They have the cutest sayings!  I love supporting small businesses and people that are making a difference.  This business is owned by a mama who is sharing her passion for whole living.  Some of my favorite shirts or onesies are Strong Like My Mama, and Forest Child.  Check out WillowCoDesign Shirts here!
  6. The Cotton and Canvas Co. Tote- Ok, we hear it all the time- bring a reusable bag, but do we really understand why?  The US alone uses 380 billion plastic bags per year according to the EPA(Environmental Protection Agency).  Most people only use one plastic bag for 12 minutes.  These single use plastics are adding up and producing some serious problems for the environment and humans.  They’re filling up landfills and then getting into our water systems.  Our water ends up contaminated and so does our oceans.  What can we do?  Simple, bring a reusable shopping bag with us.  They have so many cute one’s now!  Cotton Canvas Tote is an etsy shop that carries so many options and they have such fun sayings on them.  You can even design your own!  I’m in the process of doing it- you may be in for a giveaway on Instagram soon!  Check out Cotton Canvas Tote here!
  7. Panda Sunglasses- Just when you thought sunglasses couldn’t get any cooler in comes Panda!  Besides being absolutely chic, Panda sunglasses are made of sustainably harvested bamboo.  Panda also gives back to those in need.  Whenever someone purchases from the Original or Ultralight collection Panda gives back by giving either an eye exam or new glasses to someone in need.  I also love that the sunglasses are polarized, and offer complete UVA/UVB protection.  Panda also offers free shipping anywhere!  Check out Panda Sunglasses here!
  8. Natural Beauty- You didn’t think I was going to share my top 10 natural and sustainable products and not mention how important natural beauty is?!  When the average woman puts on 12 products a day, that can put a person at quite a toxic load.  It’s not the random product you use once in a while that matters but the products you use all the time that create a toxic burden.  Many people are just unaware of the amazing natural beauty products out there now!  There is literally an alternative to anything you might have used in conventional beauty.  Anyone would be excited to get some new nontoxic beauty products!  Some stores I love shopping at for natural beauty products are The Detox Market, Aillea and Pharmaca.  Also, be sure to download my full Natural Gift Guide to get my top recommendations for natural beauty and natural skincare options!
  9. Organic Sheets and Pillows- Another heavy hitter when it comes to toxic burden.  They say we sleep for a 1/3 of our lives.  That’s a lot of hours logged on our sheets and pillows.  Cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops.  Being doused with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.  However, that’s not the only thing we should be concerned about.  Sheets often contain formaldehyde, and toxic dyes too.  There are also toxic softeners that are used now on bedding, creating a recipe for a toxic sleep experience!  It’s not just our bodies we should be concerned about but also our environment.  As the toxic chemicals from conventional sheets end up in our waterways.  I love Sol Organix and Huut for organic, ethically made sheet sets.  Use coupon code: GGG25 for 25% off your sheets at Sol Organix or Huut!  I also love White Lotus Home for pillows!  My whole family has pillows from them and we can’t stop talking about them.  They have so many different varieties, depending on how you sleep.  Use my coupon code: GGG for 20% off!
  10. Imperfect Produce- I found Imperfect Produce a while back and was excited about their whole mission!  They take imperfect produce from local farms that would otherwise go to waste and deliver to people.  Not only does this reduce food waste but you’re also getting quality produce for a deal!  You save 30% off grocery store prices and the produce is delivered to your door.  I’ve never heard someone complain about saving money.  They offer organic or conventional produce.  You might be thinking how does this work?  Allow me to explain.  Imperfect Produce sources veggies straight from farms, you as a consumer customize your box each week to get what you want, then you get your box delivered to your home. If you don’t think this is a bid deal it is!  So far Imperfect Produce has saved over 30 million pounds of food, 900 million gallons of water, 12 million dollars saved on groceries and 91 million pounds of C02 saved.  I think it’s making an impact.  Give someone the gift of health, while at the same time changing the world- Check out Imperfect Produce here!
