We’re creating Biodegradable Polyester with Kintra Fibers, here’s how.
What if polyester was made out of plants and seamlessly biodegraded into the Earth when you were done with it? We're joining forces with materials science company Kintra Fibers to help eliminate microplastic pollution.
“We are committed to bring visibility to an opaque part of the supply chain to help brands build a better, more sustainable future [...]. We’re thrilled to work with PANGAIA, a brand [...] committed to revolutionizing raw materials [seen] through their track record of working with eco-friendly innovations and processes.”
— Alissa Baier-Lentz, Co-Founder and COO at Kintra Fibers
“We are excited to [...] bring real systemic change of material possibilities for the industry. We hope this material will become a model not just for PANGAIA, but for the industry at large. The Kintra fiber is a true embodiment of PANGAIA’s commitment to ‘high tech naturalism’, our material philosophy. Kintra’s breakthroughs in responsible, bio-based chemistry allow us to design for the performance and end-of-life of our garments from the molecule up.” (Forbes)
— Amanda Parkes, Chief Innovation Officer at PANGAIA
“PANGAIA’s science-based standards for sustainability are unparalleled, and their commitment to the planet is visible in each step of their supply chain. We look forward to collaborating with the PANGAIA team and integrating our technology into their fabrics and garments. As a lifelong surfer, protecting the oceans is near and dear to me. By designing for the material end-of-life at its start, we offer the industry a solution for microfiber pollution, as well as the ability to fit with chemical and physical recycling systems.” (Forbes)
