    To realise the project Sainsbury’s Home uses REKOOP© recycled polyester fibres, which come from recycled plastic bottles. This new initiative saves plastic from landfill, giving items a new lease of life. The DNA tagged recycled polyester fibres ensures full traceability from the start to the finished product.

    With a total of approximately 48 recycled plastic bottles going into a double plain duvet set, this new bedding is set to do wonders for reducing plastic waste.

    The bed linen is presented in a fabric bag, made from the same material. In a bid to eradicate single use plastic packaging. Fastened with a coconut husk button and jute string, it makes for an ideal storage bag.

    ‘The Sleep More Sustainably bedding represents an important step in making use of post-consumer products,’ says Rona Olds, Head of Buying Homewares at Sainsbury’s Home. ‘For homeware that is stylish and more sustainable,’

    ‘It’s incredible that 58 plastic bottles go into a king size plain duvet,’ she exclaims.
