Luxury Faux-Cardboard Duvet Covers
Dutch copywriter Peggy van Neer, has not only created a great bed linen design, but also a way of marketing it Eco consciously. She opened the site Snurkbeddengoed (“which means as much as “Cool Snoring Bed Linen”). A significant part (40%) of the sales proceeds of the “Le Clochard” duvet cover go to a Dutch foundation for the young homeless. It uses the proceeds to fund housing projects which create jobs and education opportunities for the young Dutch homeless.
