If you're looking to help the mom in your life rest easier, why not try some PJs that are both sustainable and stylish? LifeLabs has a great two-for-one deal on cooling sleep sets for Mother's Day that will help her get a good night’s sleep — without cranking the AC.
In order to fall asleep, your body temperature needs to decrease by 2 to 3 degrees Fahrenheit. While other sleep tech is designed to cool the body with the gradual evaporation of moisture, LifeLabs’ innovative CoolLife technology allows its fabrics to release body heat more readily than other materials, helping its wearers to get to sleep faster. The company calls it “the world’s first infrared transparent-fabric” and promises it will decrease the wearer’s body temperature by 3 degrees Fahrenheit. This regulation of body temperature can help cut down on the use of air conditioning, which contributes to 12 percent of our energy footprint, according to the company.
The secret to the cooling properties is the polyethylene the sets are made from, along with 39 percent recycled nylon. The most common plastic in use today, polyethylene uses less water and energy to produce and its cooling properties show promise for cutting down on energy costs, scientists have found. The material is also lightweight, breathable, and odor-resistant. The tops come in long sleeves, short sleeves, and tank options that you can pair with a sleep short or pant. (You can get two sets for one with the code COOLMOM) And when it gets cold out, the company has a separate line made with WarmLife, which keeps wearers warm with less material.
It’s encouraging that LifeLabs has committed to using recycled materials in its sleepwear, outerwear, and bedding for men and women. But the company has gone beyond that to stop using perfluorinated chemicals on its performance apparel and to use less water in their dying techniques. Their shipping materials are also bio-based, so they can be recycled or composted. Just a few more reasons your purchase can help you sleep better at night.
