Why is it sustainable?
The BERGPALM bed linen is made of 100% cotton. The fabric was non-chlorine bleached and no optical brightening was used. Overall, IKEA has switched to a sustainable policy for cotton. It either uses recycled cotton, or sources it from areas where it's grown sustainably, namely with less water, fertilisers and pesticides and in a way that increases margins for the farmers. Even more, IKEA is committed to making sustainable cotton mainstream and is organizing hands-on training and field schools to spread the knowledge about sustainable farming methods.
