One of my aims this year is to make our bedroom more eco-friendly. We decorated it last year with a minimalist theme which I love!
However, we are still using a lot of old bedding which is in dire need of updating. It’s also not made from natural materials which I don’t like. My ultimate goal is to change everything to eco-friendly products.
Last week I was asked if I’d like to review some eco pillows which was perfect timing.
Eco Pillows by Silentnight
The pillows I received are called Eco Comfort pillows from Silentnight. They are made from 100% recyclable plastic bottles.
“For every Eco Comfort Pillow we have made, we have prevented around 17 plastic bottles going into landfill or the ocean.”
Nick Booth of Silentnight comments: “Our consumer research has shown that shoppers place environmental concerns high on their list of priorities, so we’re delighted to add to the successful Eco Comfort mattress range with these pillows.”
It’s no secret that plastic waste is a big issue. Infact according to Greenpeace, an estimated 12.7 million tonnes of plastic – everything from plastic bottles and bags to microbeads – end up in our oceans each year.
Nick concludes: “We’ve used our leading UK-based technology to create these pillows so that they make a real contribution to help, without compromising on comfort. The user can hopefully sleep soundly in more ways than one thanks to our Eco Comfort Pillow.”
Why I Love These Eco Pillows
We have been using our new pillows for a week now and we have both said how much better we are sleeping because of them. My other half is particulary fussy when it comes to pillows and even he has said they are making a difference to his sleeping pattern.
We have the soft pillows on top and the hard ones underneath. However, at night as the pillows are quite thick we have found that we only need a soft one each. I guess it depends on how upright you like to be at night.
Here’s some of the main reasons I love these pillows..
- They are really comfortable
- They hold there shape
- They’re made from 100% recyclable plastic bottles
- They’re made in the UK so less travel footprint
- The pillows are machine washable
- At the end of their life the pillows are fully recyclable
Silenight has also partnered with the Marine Conservation Society to provide financial support and has been awarded the Furniture Makers’ Sustainability Award for its efforts.
“As part of the partnership, we’ve pledged financial support to the Marine Conservation Society to ensure our seas are healthy, pollution-free and protected, while maintaining the breath-taking beauty of our enriched coastlines.”
I’m really happy with the Eco Comfort Pillows and I would definitely recommend them to others.

What’s Next For Our Eco Bedroom?
Our bedroom is an ongoing project but the next job on my list is to find an eco mattress and eco bedding. We’ve had our current mattress for over 13 years now so we’re definitely in need of a new one.
I’d also like to get one more large houseplant as they help to remove toxins from the air and can also help you to sleep. That’s if I can manage to keep it alive!
