What Is a Vegan Duvet?

You’re thinking it, I’m just saying it. How in the world can a duvet be “vegan”? Also what is even the point? Rest Duvet has made their newest product – the Vegan Duvet. So the question stands, what is a vegan duvet?

What makes something “vegan-friendly”?

Vegan simply means that no animal by-products are used. For food purposes, we know that means that animal meat or anything that an animal produces like milk or eggs is not allowed. How does this relate to duvets then?

For starters, a lot of duvets are made with “down”. “Down is a filling feather gathered from the undercoat of geese, ducks, and swans. Because of its lightweight nature and lofty fluff, down is a great temperature regulator for people who sleep hot.” (Casper Editorial Team, 2021). In other words, down is an animal-product and not vegan-friendly.

Why get the vegan duvet from Rest?

That being said, Rest Duvet has made their new vegan duvet for those who want to continue living a vegan lifestyle! Or if you are someone like me that just likes supporting environmentally friendly products, this would also be the product for you. If there is a simple way to bring more eco-friendly products into my home, I will.

This duvet is made from corn and has biodegradable fill instead of down. It comes in three options: Light, All-Season, and Ultra-Warm. I chose the All-Season one as it’s the best for my needs living in San Diego. The material feels like peach-fuzz, but is incredibly still moisture-wicking!

Evercool from Rest Duvet coupon code

Does Evercool Really Work For Hot Sleepers?

Like Rob Thomas sang in “Smooth” by Santana, man it’s a HOT one! Now that my husband and I own our own condo, we needed an efficient way to cool ourselves at night. And turning the AC way down was not the solution. A cooling comforter was! Specifically the Evercool Cooling Comforter from Rest. But does Evercool really work?

Keep reading for an exclusive discount code for Evercool! I will receive a commission from Rest if the code is used. Using this code does not increase your purchase price.

About Evercool

We recently got the Evercool cooling comforter from Rest. Shockingly enough, it has only been available for three months. Since then, it has already been recommended by Healthline and Goodhousekeeping as one of the best cooling comforters of 2022! Based on those two recommendations alone, I was convinced it could help my husband not be a hot sleeper anymore. Honestly he radiates heat and always wants to cuddle me. I love him to pieces but my goodness I cannot stand how hot he makes our bed feel.

Just upon opening the package, we were both shocked at how cool it actually was. It felt like it had just been taken out of the fridge. It is cooler than cotton, bamboo, silk, and Tencel! Not only that, but it was super soft.

And if you think that was all it was good for, there’s more! It’s also got three times the moisture wicking power compared to regular comforters. Hand in hand with that is that it is quick-drying making caring and washing it a breeze. Needless to say, we were excited to see if it lived up to it’s hype. So.. does Evercool really work for hot sleepers?

Evercool cooling comforter from Rest Duvet

Our Trial Run

Our previous solution for hot nights was to swap out our thick comforter for a thin blanket. Although that was a better solution than keeping the thick comforter, it still didn’t help as much. We immediately put Evercool on our bed and kept all of our sleeping habits exactly the same. Same bamboo sheets, same amount of pillows on the bed, and the AC set to 76 degrees.

Hopping in to bed for the first time, it still felt like the comforter was just cold on its own. Both my husband and I slept great that night. I didn’t feel like the bed was overheating because of him being a hot sleeper. I also felt like I had uninterrupted sleep because I wasn’t waking up from being hot.

After trying it for a week, I don’t think my husband wants to go back to any other blanket. He likes to say that he’s a little “cold burrito” when he’s wrapped up in Evercool. And for me, on some nights I felt like it did TOO good of a job and I had to rely on getting another blanket to warm me back up! But I run pretty cold as it is (my husband hates it when I touch him with my cold feet and hands). As an added bonus, our husky also likes taking his naps on our comforter now too, and that’s not something he normally does.

Overall Thoughts about Evercool Cooling Comforter

I would definitely recommend using Evercool to others if you want to sleep less hot, have less night sweat, less waking up due to overheating, or just want to lower your AC bill. And if that bright blue color that Evercool is known for isn’t your bedroom aesthetic, they just released a brand new grey color! In short, yes Evercool really works.

Better yet, if you want a coupon code for Evercool or anything else on Rest.com, use the code DGB20 to get 20% off of the Evercool Cooling Comforter!

Halloween Home Decor Guide 2021

Spooky season seems to get sooner and sooner every year with retailers everywhere putting out their merch while it’s still summer time. But if you think about it, Christmas starts well before Thanksgiving so this should be no different!

Halloween has slowly become a new favorite for me each year, and with each new year, I seem to get more involved with the merch game! So let’s go through six awesome retailers that are doing the most to keep me absolutely OBSESSED this year. Click any of the pictures to shop that item.

Target

shopDisney

Home Depot

WayFair

Walmart

OverStock

Target and Walmart were perfect if you wanted to decorate on a budget. they had tons of cute things under $20! Home Depot obviously has A LOT of inflatables so if you love decorating your yard with that, then look there thoroughly. shopDisney always seems to kill the spoopy décor and apparel. WayFair definitely had some of the coziest looking blankets so if you are a cuddle fanatic, that would be the place to shop. There were SO MANY options at OverStock, and keeping myself to just picking 8 of them was me trying to be tame with my options. Notice that everyone else only got 4 picks… but not OverStock.

I hope this has helped narrow down the search from some amazing Halloween décor! And I hope you have a SPOOKTACULAR holiday!
