A Sustainable Home-Grown Mission

Posted by A Little Pillow Company on

We opened our doors in 2007 with one goal: to make the most comfy bed pillows on the planet in the most sustainable way possible.  No doubt a big dream for such a little company, but we truly believe we are achieving that if our thousands of happy customers are any judge.

First of all we start with an untreated 100% cotton 200TC percale cover which is double-stitched for added strength.  Wonderfully soft, cool and absorbent, cotton is an ideal choice for bed pillows.  Our cotton is free from all flame retardants and wrinkle-free additives. 

You are welcome of course to iron the pillowcases, which do show post-laundering wrinkles more than the pillows, but we actually enjoy the lovable look crinkles give, especially when it means no added chemicals.

Now let us introduce you to what's inside....

A Little Pillow Company Flex-Fill made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

And this is where it gets really fun and exciting: Our Flex-Fill is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles so not only by choosing one of our pillows are you giving yourself the gift of a delicious sleep but you are removing single-use plastic bottles from our oceans and landfills.  For every pound of Flex-Fill, 23 homeless bottles are transformed into a product that is hypoallergenic, machine-washable and blissfully comfy.

As a happy sustainable bonus, our Flex-Fill is made right here in the USA!

As a company we are always striving to become even more sustainable.  Due to the hygienic nature of our products, plastic bags are required so we found a bag that can be recycled into other unique products.  All of our bags can be dropped off at any grocery store Plastic Film Recycling Bin.

DID YOU KNOW: Plastic film can be used to make composite lumber for making decks, benches, and playground sets. Plastic film can also be reprocessed into small pellets, which can be made into new bags, pallets, containers, crates, and pipe. (Source: Plastic Film Recycling)

Our large pillows (and larger orders) are shipped in plain cardboard boxes.  Not printed with any dangerous inks or dyes, they are fully compostable.  Or use them as a weed-barrier in your garden!
