1. SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION
We use reforested beech forest that is made into Lyocell in a closed system that saves and recycles water.Our material emits 56.49% less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere compared to cotton.
2. COMPENSATE PRODUCTION
Even if the harvest is at a slower rate than the natural growth of beech, we want to make sure we give back more than we take. That's why we create new resources by planting trees. Trees are very important because they store a significant amount of carbon dioxide over their lifetime and help cool the planet by lowering air temperatures.
3. MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
When you place an order with HIT THE HAY, you don't just get great bedding and towels, you literally make the world a better place. Each year we donate 1% of our proceeds to WaterAid, read more below.
"With great power comes great responsibility" Who said it first? Was it Voltaire or Peter Parker's uncle Ben? Either way, we believe that as a company we can do many good things in the world. Not only by offering great and innovative products to you the customer, but also by using the power of bringing people together and actually helping those who are not so fortunate.
By supporting us you will not only improve your sleep, you will also be contributing to a more environmentally friendly alternative for bedding and at the same time helping to make the world a better place.
We love planting trees
Trees are amazing. You can build houses out of them, rocking horses, guitars and now you can even make bedding out of them. But they're also important for our planet, so it's important that we plant more than we harvest.#teamtrees

20 times less water
By choosing Lyocell bedding instead of cotton, you save up to 20 times more water. We also donate 1% of our proceeds each year to WaterAid, which helps people in need gain access to clean water and sanitation.
We calculate the freight emissions and ensure a high-quality carbon dioxide removal to neutralize the freight's impact on the environment.
EVERY YEAR WE DONATE 1% OF OUR REVENUE TO WATERAID.
WaterAid is an international organisation working for a better world where all people have access to clean water and sanitation. Every year, it transforms the lives of millions of people by improving access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene in the world's poorest communities.
For example, donations can help train hygiene educators in Bangladesh, give people access to clean water or pay for a hand pump in a village in Nepal.
The consequences of a lack of clean water, sanitation and hygiene are dire. Every day, 800 children die just because they don't have access to these basic needs.
