We are heading into (or really, we’re in the midst of!) a season focused on shopping. When it comes to sustainable living, the need to shop and give gifts can be a challenging one because there’s a mindful balance needing to be struck with each dollar spent. The reality is that each purchase we make will have an impact on our planet.

As we shop for items and make our purchases, we can minimize that impact by making conscious choices. These choices include the businesses we buy from and the materials our purchases are made of. This is why we are grateful for companies like Terrera, who make it easy to care for our earth while shopping.

Who is Terrera?

Stemming from the fusion of “terre,” French for earth, and “era,” symbolizing time, Terrera means “Our Time On Earth”. This woman-led company was founded in 2007 when sustainable fashion was a budding concept in Canada. The team at Terrera takes great care in choosing everything from thread and buttons to fabric and dyes to ensure they are all free of harmful substances and have the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. It is encouraging to see a company being so proactive in their approach to materials and practices in an effort to lower their environmental impact.

Terrera’s dedication also extends beyond materials to conscious production practices. They focus on fostering lasting relationships with partners committed to sustainability. From meticulous audits of overseas factories to eco-friendly shipping, Terrera strives to minimize their ecological footprint.

Terrera also hosts their Earth Award, which honors Canadian women leading sustainable initiatives. In addition to this, they support organizations like the YWCA and the Amazon Rainforest Conservancy, extending their positive impact on communities and the planet.

We believe that earth is a gift, given to us to be cherished.

Earth-Friendly Fibre Choices and Why they Matter

Two years ago when I moved, I received a second hand bed frame that was a different size than my previous one. This meant that I needed to start the search for new sheets and I quickly realized that sustainable bedding options were not widely available to me.

I not only wanted to find a sheet set that had a smaller impact on our environment, but I also wanted to buy from a company that shared my values for protecting our planet and encouraged being a conscious consumer.

One aspect I began to focus on was the fabric of the sheets because this has a potentially large impact on the planet. Earth-friendly fabrics like organic cotton and bamboo tend to require less pesticides, water, and energy to produce. This means they help decrease pollution and lessen the strain on natural resources, promoting a healthier planet.

As well, Earth-friendly fabrics tend to biodegrade more easily or can be recycled, reducing the accumulation of non-biodegradable waste in landfills. This promotes a circular economy (which we love!), minimizing the environmental impact of textile disposal.

One of the areas Terrera focuses on is their fabric choices, such as bamboo for their sheet sets.

Five reasons why bamboo is a great sustainable fabric choice:

  1. Rapid Growth and Regeneration: Bamboo is renowned for its rapid growth, often growing several feet in a day. This means it can be harvested frequently without causing environmental strain or depletion.
  2. Minimal Environmental Impact: Bamboo requires significantly fewer resources compared to traditional cotton. It’s naturally pest-resistant, reducing the need for pesticides, and its cultivation generally has a lower impact on the environment.
  3. Water Efficiency: Bamboo is exceptionally water-efficient, using less water compared to many other crops. This factor is critical in regions where water scarcity is a concern.
  4. Carbon Sequestration: Bamboo is a notable carbon sink, absorbing higher levels of carbon dioxide and releasing more oxygen into the atmosphere. This ability aids in reducing greenhouse gas levels.
  5. Ecosystem Preservation: Bamboo forests contribute to biodiversity, providing habitats for various species. Unlike monoculture crops, bamboo cultivation often occurs in diverse, natural environments, preserving ecosystem balance.

Bamboo’s sustainable qualities, from its growth rate to its environmental impact, make it a great option for an eco-friendly fabric choice.

Terrera Bamboo Sheet Set Review

I was gifted a beautiful, grey bamboo sheet set so I could share my honest thoughts with you all about them. We first mentioned them a couple of weeks ago in our Sustainable Gift Guide as I think they are a perfect item to gift to a loved one!

Terrera describes these sheets as “cool-to-touch, ultra-soft, and luxurious” and I couldn’t agree more. As someone who loves curling up all warm and cozy-like in bed, I wasn’t sure what the cool-to-touch aspect would mean for someone like me. They are obviously cooler than my warmth-absorbing flannel sheets, but they are truly so soft that I didn’t mind at all. The softness of these bamboo sheets cannot be overstated. There is a silky smoothness to them, but with a more comforting, thicker texture than silk would be.

An unexpected result from these bamboo sheets is that they helped to regulate my body temperature better through the night and I didn’t wake up too hot or too cold at any point. This was such a welcome surprise! I can overheat during the night, so these sheets helped me out with this.

With a 400-thread count, these sheets look and feel like they will last for years. That’s important to me because a sustainable purchase means not just something made from sustainable materials, but also something that doesn’t need to be frequently replaced.

These bamboo sheet sets come in a fantastic variety of colours and are packaged with a nice cloth bag that make it perfect for gifting.

    I had no idea that there was eco-friendly bedding sheet sets available and I will switch to this brand or something similar when I need to finally replace my old ones. This is such a great idea, and it’s an added bonus that Terrera was founded by women. Brilliant!

      I hadn’t put much thought into it until I needed a new size of sheets and then was so surprised! I’m really glad I found this option to share about 🙂
