Buffy is an eco-friendly bedding brand that promises comfort, breathability, and durability without sacrificing quality. I put it to the test.
I’m a queen for comfort. But, living in a camper van means that quality comfort can be hard to come by. Every item needs to serve a purpose to make the cut, and while I love things that are pretty, this lifestyle demands functionality. That’s why Buffy’s colorful, cooling eucalyptus sheets caught my eye.
I hate to admit it, but I’m a night sweater. Now that I’m back on the road sharing a bed with two dogs and limited AC, I needed a solution before the hot summer months become unbearable. I was looking for durable sheets that keep me cool and won’t upset my allergies. Huge bonus if they’re sustainably made and gorgeous (see below—I will spare you the images of my camper).
Buffy’s cooling eucalyptus sheets set seemed to be the answer to my prayers, but after all the disappointing bedding I’ve tried, it was safe to say I had my doubts. Since Buffy has a 100 night return policy, I decided to try out their modern essentials for the summer to see if they lived up to my rigorous lifestyle and demands.
Cutting-Edge Cooling Tech
Before making any purchase, I like to poke around and learn about the brand. And here’s what I learned about Buffy: it’s not about a product—it’s about a solution. Growing up in a family with more than 30 years of bedding-manufacturing experience, Buffy’s CEO Leo Wang realized that there had to be a better, more sustainable bedding solution that’s comfortable as-can-be.
Eucalyptus was key to the formula. Its natural ability to wick away moisture makes it more breathable than cotton, without sacrificing comfort. After 10 years of fabric development, Leo finally cracked the code with Buffy’s signature ultra soft eucalyptus-based fabric called TENCEL lyocell. In 2017, Buffy was born, bringing comfort to sweaty sleepers everywhere. Since then, over 500,000 people have joined the mission for better sleep by putting comfort first.
Durable and Designed to Last
With fast fashion being the environmental epidemic of our generation, it’s been a priority for me to find products that will last years, not months. I want bedding that’s soft and comfortable, but living life on the road I need to be confident that my bedding can stand up to my lifestyle.
Thankfully every Buffy product is carefully crafted with 100% plant-based material and is designed to withstand hundreds of washes without ever losing that buttery soft feeling. I didn’t know it was possible, but it actually gets softer with each wash.
Am I the only one who feels like I hit the jackpot finding a product as durable as it is comfortable? If you can’t relate, it sounds like it’s time to upgrade.
Eco-Friendly (and Even Compostable)
As a digital nomad, I’m a minimalist by necessity. And with minimalism comes a heightened awareness of my environmental impact. Turns out, Buffy and I have that in common. Where other companies may greenwash and gaslight, Buffy prides themselves on keeping transparent sustainability at the core of everything they do.
Their 100% biodegradable, non-toxic eucalyptus fabric is produced using zero pesticides and 76% less water than cotton. And, right on their website you can find environmental impact reports and details on how they offset CO2 emissions from freight and customer shipments. From production to packaging, Buffy promises top-of-the-line bedding made with everyone in mind, including Mother Earth.
Buffy’s really out here making cooling sheets that are cool for nature, too. 🥲
Hypo-Allergenic and Sensitivity Friendly
As a natural redhead, I have a laundry list of allergens. I’m here to report to Sensitive Skinned Divas everywhere that Buffy’s heavenly sheets are free of toxic dyes or chemicals that can trigger dermatitis or skin reactions. Same for my fellow asthmatics who struggle with allergies and stubborn pet dander. The silky TENCEL lyocell is out-of-this-world soft but also doubles as a defense mechanism, eliminating the micro-crevices where sneaky bacteria and allergens like to hide.
Buffy’s plant-based sheets are naturally allergen and bacteria free, leaving me free to worry about relaxing instead of reacting. Living the #VanLife means I’m constantly surrounded by dogs and dirt. At the end of the day I want my bed to be a clean sanctuary where I can rest easy knowing my sheets are crafted to help me fight off daily dirt and allergens.
My Final Thoughts
Finding bedding that’s multi-functional, durable, eco-friendly, and won’t upset my lungs or my skin has been a journey. So, I’m pleased to report the verdict is in: these sheets are here to stay.
Although Buffy generously offers a 100 day return window, one sleep was enough to convert me into a fan for life. I was mind-blown at how soft, durable, and cozy my new sheets are. They’re lightweight, keep me cool, and don’t irritate my skin—but most importantly they’ve improved the quality of my sleep.
If you’re a hot sleeper who’s been looking to upgrade your bedding, look no further. I can confidently say Buffy’s Breeze Sheet Set is changing the game in temperature balancing, durable, and sustainable bedding.
