We are here to change the world . . . one sheet at a time.
At Eucalypso Home, we are dedicated to innovation and creating solutions. We believe the best production processes are ones that use our natural source material to help protect the environment. In order to preserve our planet's resources, we are making our bedding based on the concept of circular economy and closed loop processes.
This is why we chose to make our sheets with 100% Tencel® lyocell from natural eucalyptus fibers - which are cultivated using 10x less water and are milled in a zero-footprint, Oeko-tex certified environment in Austria.
Tencel® lyocell from eucalyptus is one of the most sustainable textile materials today. The fiber yield per acre from eucalyptus is up to 10 times higher than cotton and requires less than 1/10 of the water to grow. It is milled with high eco-standards, created a closed-loop system that recycles and reuses water to minimize waste.
On the other hand, cotton production is extremely damaging to the environment. It is considered one of the world’s dirtiest and thirstiest crops. Although only 2.4% of the world's cropland is planted with cotton, it accounts for 24% of the world’s insecticide market and 11% of the sale of global pesticides.
Eucalypso bedding is produced in an environmentally responsible, closed loop production process, which transforms eucalyptus pulp into fibers. This process encourages high resource efficiency and low environmental impact by recycling water and reusing the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%.
A number of other bedding products are created in a process that uses toxic solvents that are harmful to the environment. They use solvents that are classified as corrosive and cannot be recycled back into the production process. In comparison, our Eucalyptus bedding uses only 1 organic solvent that is reused over and over again. We recycle and reuse 99.6% of the water and solvent left over from the creation process.
You can sleep well knowing that your choices are not contributing to an adverse impact on the environment.
Even better environmental news: Tencel® is fully bio-degradable, meaning it is capable of being fully decomposed when it ends up in landfills, thereby avoiding pollution unlike oil-based fabrics like polyester.

Sustainability and environmental protection is what we preach - so we will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the The Nature Conservancy.
