When Kirsten and Joan, two Boston moms, sent their kids to college, they were rather disgusted to learn that the kids rarely took the time to wash their dirty sheets. Given the demands of college life, washing sheets is apparently no longer a priority. Knowing that dirty sheets become breeding grounds for bacteria, mold and allergens and the health of their children was at risk, they searched for a disposable alternative. With no options available other than paper and plastic, they decided to come up with their own solution. Hence, the creation of Beantown Bedding® and its utterly eco-friendly (dirt to dirt) disposable sheets.
Made from plants, the sheets are surprisingly soft, can be used for days or weeks and either recycled or composted, where they will return to earth. No laundering means saving time, water and energy, and reducing your carbon footprint.
Designed as a time-saver for college students (and peace of mind for their moms), the solution has now helped hospitality businesses and emergency management professionals enjoy the operational and environmental benefits of going laundry-free. Even more, Beantown Bedding® is new for every guest, dispelling doubts in a reviews-driven industry, where the perception of clean is critical.
The creative combination, convenient and sustainable linens, has earned national attention from USA Today, the View, the Today Show and other media channels. Its founders were named among Women and Wealth Magazine’s 17 Women to Watch in 2017. The company is a 2013 MassChallenge alum; a 2016 finalist for the Babson Breakaway Challenge; and a 2014 INDA Visionary Award finalist.
Beantown Bedding® is available retail at Beantownbedding.com where a subscription service at significant price savings is a popular option, and online at Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, The Grommet, and Amazon.
In 2018, the company launched Beantown Innovations™, providing custom solutions for laundry-free textiles. Coming soon: Infusionzzz scented pillowcases for sleep with benefits!
Beantown Bedding is a pioneer in the revolutionary spirit of Boston. The company's founders are true rebels… laundry rebels.
