Are you looking for a holiday gift for your favorite nurse, event planner, traveler or college student? What about giving them clean sheets without the laundry? Beantown Bedding's Laundry-Free Linens® are the only product of its kind, offering the soft comfort of traditional sheets with the convenience of disposables. These biodegradable bed sheets can be used for days or weeks and can simply be discarded or composted instead of laundered. How's that for a gift that keeps on giving?
Beantown Bedding was founded by Joan Ripple and Kirsten Lambert after they sent their kids to college and learned that they rarely took the time to wash their sheets. But offering a convenient, comfortable and compostable alternative to laundering has turned out to have even broader appeal beyond college campuses. Laundry-Free Linens® have seen tremendous growth in the healthcare and hospitality industries as well as with camps and overnight conferences and events. The innovative product has created quite a buzz with features on The View and The Today Show and inclusion in the Emmy Awards celebrity gift bags. People are fascinated by the concept and often surprised by the comfort—with one travel blogger simply summing the linens up as “epic!”

Beantown Bedding is truly a pioneer in disposable home textiles. The Boston-based startup has received national media attention for its clever play on convenience, hygiene and sustainability and its Laundry-Free Linens® represent an entirely new concept: luxury disposable linens. After days or weeks of use they may simply be discarded or composted instead of laundered.
