In The Department of Uh, No Thanks: Cardboard Bedding

Don't get us wrong, we are all for charity and we are fans of duvet covers, but, this cardboard bedding is making us puke in our mouths a little. As part of their mission to bring awareness to homelessness, a design company has produced these: "The Home Duvet lets you sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless person doesn't have to!" How about we aim for no one sleeping under cardboard boxes?

Could you imagine walking into a guy's room and seeing this? It's almost worse than a ratty sleeping bag on an air mattress. We have a hard enough time snoozing in his scratchy Ikea sheets and flat, abused pillows, much less sheets that looked like they were snatched out of a dumpster. Uh, no thanks.
