There isn't really a huge difference between the two. It's pretty much a personal choice.
The unbleached are not chemically treated to whithen them so they're a little more compatible with the goal to do as little environmental damage as possible. They are a dark creamy color (though they do lighten with age) and hide stains better than the stark white ones.
Some say that one or the other has a better stretch so fit longer but I'm not sure which, I've heard conflicting reports. Same goes for softness, some say one is softer than the other but there's no consistancy in which one.
