Following on from my post yesterday on Sleep World Day. Today I am writing on National Bed Month which is taking place this month.

The Sleep Council writes about how National Bed Month is taking place to raise awareness of of how important a good, comfortable bed is in helping to achieve a good nights sleep.

They also have a competition to celebrate National Bed Month which is running throughout the month. They have teamed up with Soak and Sleep for a chance to win an eco-friendly ReDown All Seasons double duvet, worth £133, guaranteed to help you sleep with a clean conscience.

Comfort – whether that’s the bed, the bedding, the temperature of the room etc – plays a large part in getting a good night’s sleep. As well as having a comfortable and supportive mattress make sure you have the right duvet and pillows.

Soak&Sleep believe good sleep should be available to everybody. They know there is a proven link between a good night’s sleep and improved physical and mental wellbeing, but too many of us still neglect our bedding, settling for poorly made, one size fits all products that aren’t fit for purpose. A duvet is a duvet, right? Wrong! Their products are well made and built to last, which is part of the vision to deliver more quality sleep for less.

The ReDown double sized duvet, made with 100% recycled down and feather, is considered ultra-clean by industry standards because of the double washing process. ReDown is not only eco-friendly but also extremely good for allergy sufferers. The cleaning process also ensures the filling is soft, lofty and extra comfortable!

The competition closes at 3pm on Friday 13th March. The winner will be announced on The Sleep Council’s Twitter and Facebook pages no later than Monday 16th March.

For your chance to win a double ReDown All Seasons duvet, you must FOLLOW both Sleep Council and Soak&Sleep on Twitter and RETWEETthe competition post. Alternatively LIKE both Sleep Council and Soak&Sleep on Facebook. Then SHARE the competition post and COMMENT.
