Usually, when we dispose of our clothes, bed sheets or towels, where they end up is an afterthought. Did you know that 10 million tons of textile waste ends up in landfills every year? Coyuchi, the luxury organic and sustainable home textile manufacturer is attempting to tackle the problem through a new subscription program called Coyuchi for Life that allows consumers to purchase sheets, duvets, and towels without the worry of damaging the environment. Pay anywhere from $5 to $42 a month, depending on what subscription you get. According to the company, its Coyuchi for Life service accomplishes three things:

1. GO AFTER A MEASURABLE ISSUE WITH NO EASY ANSWERS

There is no easy way to recycle sheets and towels. Rags eventually get thrown out, and up to 80% of donations to Goodwill end up in the landfill.  ‘Coyuchi for Life’ reclaims used sheets and towels, renews them when possible, and recycles unsalvageable textiles into new yarn.

2. PROVIDE ADDITIONAL POSITIVE BENEFITS FROM THE FARM TO YOUR BED

While redirecting and keeping materials out of landfills, Coyuchi home linens also meet the highest standards for organic cotton (GOTS-certified) and use only natural dyes and detergents for processing—keeping harsh chemicals out of groundwater, rivers, and oceans from the farm to people’s homes.

3. MAKE IT EASY FOR PEOPLE TO BUY IN

Who doesn’t love the luxurious feel of new sheets and towels? 60% of Americans buy new sheets and towels every year and 85% subscribe to at least one recurring subscription service. With ‘Coyuchi for Life,’ starting at $5 per month for a towel set, consumers can delight in fresh, sustainable linens for the home—guilt-free.

Coyuchi for Life is the first service where customers can recycle old sheets, towels and duvet covers. Users can sign up to receive new bed and bathroom linens every six, 12 or 24 months. When they’re due for a fresh set, customers simply return their old sheets, duvet covers and towels to be recycled and renewed, in return for a brand new set. How easy is that? Plus, we all love a nice, brand new set of sheets.

You can now stream the original Shōgun miniseries — here’s how
You can now stream the original Shōgun from the '80s!
Yoko Shimada and Richard Chamberlain in Shogun.

After making a tremendous debut earlier this year, FX and Hulu's Shōgun is easily one of the top TV series of 2024. In addition to being critically acclaimed, Shōgun is such a massive hit that FX is already planning additional seasons to what was originally a standalone adaptation of James Clavell's 1975 novel. It was also one of Hulu's most-streamed series of the year, so it's understandable why FX wants to keep the show going.

This isn't the first time that Shōgun has taken audiences by storm. The original TV adaptation of Shōgun from 1980 was widely considered one of the greatest miniseries ever made. It also had the distinction of being the first and only U.S. production to be filmed entirely in Japan. At the time the new Shōgun premiered earlier this year, the original miniseries wasn't available to stream. But thanks to the new adaptation, fans can now find the 1980 incarnation of Shōgun on one of the major streaming services.
Where is the original Shōgun available to stream?

The White Lotus season 3: Everything we know
Get up to date on everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.
The cast of The White Lotus season 1.

When the first season of The White Lotus premiered in 2021, few could have suspected that it would become one of the best shows on HBO and Max. Even series creator Mike White considered The White Lotus to be a six-episode one-off story. But viewer response to this black comedy miniseries was so strong that White and HBO realized that they had a hit on their hands. That's why the series was quickly renewed, and it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022 just a little over a year after the first season.

The White Lotus season 3 was confirmed in November 2022, but unfortunately, the hiatus between seasons is going to be over two years. Each of the first two seasons featured an almost completely different cast of characters, although Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reprised their characters in season 2 to establish some connections with the previous season. There aren't currently a lot of details known about the third season. Regardless, we're sharing everything we know about The White Lotus season 3, which includes most of the cast, the theme and setting, as well as when fans can expect the show to return.
Who's starring in The White Lotus season 3?
