Getting a good night's sleep is one of the most important things we can do for our bodies, our mental health, and our energy levels. I've dealt with insomnia for years, and I know how tempting it can be to buy a new mattress, sheets, pillow, weighted blanket and anything else that might possible help you sleep soundly. But for some, switching from the ratty PJ pants you've been wearing nightly since high school to cozy, well-made, organic cotton pajamas can be a simple swap that makes all the difference.

Fortunately, there are endless options when it comes to nicely-made pajamas that are also fairly eco-friendly, ethically-made, and composed of natural materials.

So, we're rounding up some of the best sustainable pajamas out there, for both children and adults of all genders. All of the jammies on this list are made from organic cotton — a material that is grown without pesticides, is known for being soft and breathable, and potentially less bothersome to those with sensitive skin, as per Recovo.
