Co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post Arianna Huffington shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives, our personal lives--and even our sex lives in this New York Times bestseller.

We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, with profound consequences to our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What we need is nothing short of a sleep revolution: only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives.

In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream. She takes on the sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can get better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power.

The result is a sweeping, scientifically rigorous, and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, from the history of sleep, to the role of dreams in our lives, to the consequences of sleep deprivation, and the new golden age of sleep science that reveals the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health--from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s.

In today's fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually-harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important--and elusive--than ever. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help transform our lives, our communities, and our world.

We love our planet

All our orders are transported and stored in compostable bags by The Better Packaging Company. Their comPOLY bags are made from corn starch (PLA) with a synthetic polymer (PBAT). They have received the Australian Standard, AS5810 for composability as well as the OK Compost Home / Vincotte and Seedling standards. This means they can be composted at home or in a commercial composting facility.

The Better Packaging Company claims that this combination of materials represents a 60% reduction in CO emissions compared to traditional plastics while being non-toxic and containing no Phthalate or Bisphenol A (BPA). For our customer facing packaging we use two options. The first is our carbon neutral mailer bag, also by The Better Packaging Company. Called their ØPACK, it is made from approximately 80% Calcium Carbonate sourced from quarry waste and approximately 20% non-toxic recycled resin (HDPE). Its production uses renewable energy, zero water, no acid or bleaches while creating zero pollution in a carbon neutral process. We encourage customers to reuse these bags, however at the end of their life they can be recycled with soft plastics. For our larger customer facing orders, we use custom made boxes made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified cardboard that are manufactured in New Zealand from a high percentage of recycled card. FSC guarantees that the materials are coming from trees grown in responsibly managed forests.

Social Responsibility

As a company we are committed to ensuring we operate in an environmentally responsible way. We are far from perfect, but WE REALLY CARE! We believe that every small bit helps, and we are actively taking steps to increase sustainability and reduce our footprint both behind the scenes in sourcing and manufacturing, as well as what our customers take home.

Our aim is to source beautiful, sustainable fabrics that are the premium quality our customers expect.

Every decision we make, we consider the impact on the environment. Some of our initiatives include reducing our plastic consumption by up to 70% by not individually bagging our garments coming from our factory. We are working on a biodegradable plastic for the bags we do use.
