Lambert and Ripple created hypoallergenic, biodegradable sheets made from a botanic fiber from eucalyptus called TENCEL, making the disposal process eco-friendly. The sheets can be used for days or weeks and then discarded or composted, in replacement of laundering.

Beantown Bedding announced a new partnership with Target this week that will put its Laundry-Free Linens® on shelves for students—and with an estimated 150,000 college students set to return to Boston, the timing couldn’t be better. It’s part of Target’s localization strategy to deliver a locally relevant, personalized experience for guests. Target’s CEO Brian Cornell explained the Boston Fenway store’s role in the new strategy to the Associated Press last year: “It's a great example of localized marketing…great local assortment of merchandise that tells our guests we understand we're in their hometown.”

As high school graduation season approaches, one of the biggest questions for friends and family is what to get the soon-to-be college freshman in their lives.

Beantown Bedding’s Laundry-Free Linens® are the ultimate graduation gift—clean sheets without the laundry. The only product of its kind, these sheets are made from plants, are incredibly soft and comfortable, and last for weeks. They're also hypoallergenic and free of chemicals and dyes.

Let’s face it, college kids don’t take the time to wash their dirty sheets. There are just way too many better things to do with their time, like go to class (seriously!), participate in extracurriculars, work out and most importantly…socialize!
