Rainwater harvesting for producing organic sheets

Blaynk, a new bedding company, says its pushing beyond the “organic” label and creating sheets made from just two ingredients: cotton and rainwater. The company uses a textile manufacturer in southern India that runs its operations on 100% wind power. To mitigate the water-intensive nature of fabric production, especially in drought-strapped India, Blaynk’s manufacturing partner collects and reuses rainwater to produce the sheets. While standard cotton bedding requires around 20 gallons of water to make, Blaynk takes just two gallons of rainwater, and has developed proprietary methods to spin, treat, and weave the cotton to be soft and durable without relying on chemicals.
