Why Neil Armstrong would have chosen Jo Dope Hemp Bed Sheets

Why Neil Armstrong would have chosen Jo Dope Hemp Bed Sheets

On July 20th, 1969, the world watched as Neil Armstrong planted a moon boot on lunar ground for the first time. Jo Dope, wasn’t even born yet! But despite this, and despite the hostile contextual origins of Armstrong’s achievement (The Cold War), we think that Neil would have benefitted, and indeed desired, a pair of Jo Dope Hemp Sheets before, and every night after, that famous moon landing. Here’s why:


Everyone knows Neil’s story and his famous “One small step quote”, but not many know that he was actually quite a reserved individual who valued his privacy. Further, Armstrong didn’t seek celebrity status at all, in fact he was simply a dedicated, passionate man in love with the joy of flying. At Jo Dope, we can draw numerous parallels to Neil’s situation. For one, we are also dedicated and passionate about our cause, only we don’t want to set foot on the moon. All we want to do is provide you, Neil (if he were still alive) and anyone else who values their privacy a soothing, eco-friendly set of sheets. Through eco-friendly hemp bed linen, we want to contribute to the betterment of the planet and humanity. And we think that this is something Neil would really get behind…

Interestingly, there’s a lot of debate about the grammar of Neil’s famous quote. Did he say “one small step for [a] man” or just “for man”? While we honestly think that there are much more pressing issues in the world at the moment (for example freshwater overuse in commercial textile production…), we couldn’t help but wonder: What if Neil had a good night’s sleep before the landing? Maybe he would’ve spoken more clearly… What if he’d slept in a relaxing pair of Jo Dope hemp bed sheets? Maybe our manchester could’ve changed the course of history. 

We’ll never know…

In spite of all of this conjecture, I’m sure you’d agree that, if he had his time again, Neil would have happily cozied up in some Jo Dope Hemp Bed Sheets. Firstly, because he valued his privacy, secondly because he appreciated dedication to the betterment of humanity and thirdly because he might’ve just needed a good night’s sleep…

Lots of love

The Jo Dope team.
