Eastman Naia™ received the 303 Tuscans Ethical Fashion award
Nearly 3 in 5 consumers around the world would avoid purchasing clothing made from fibers that are harmful to the environment. Eastman Naia™ cellulosic yarn offers the textile industry the confidence in a product that balances the need for performance and sustainability. Naia™ is a biobased material that comes from sustainably managed forests and is manufactured in a socially responsible manner in the U.S.A. Manufactured by a World’s Most Ethical Company®, as awarded by Ethisphere Institute, Eastman cellulosic yarn has received certification by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred program.
Eastman cellulosic yarn meets human-ecological standards with direct contact to skin demonstrated by its Product Class I certification with the Oeko-Tex label. Eastman is also a proud member of the global Sustainable Brands organization. In September, Eastman also received 303 Tuscans Ethical Fashion award.
Eastman Naia™ cellulosic yarn is derived from renewable wood pulp, sourced exclusively from sustainably managed forests-never from endangered or old growth forests. It has been awarded the FSC(r) and PEFC Chain of Custody certification adhering to the standards of responsible forestry. It is produced in a near-closed-loop process located in the United States where all waste is either recycled, reused, or offered for resale. Naia™ is manufactured without chemicals listed on the ZDHC MRSL and does not require any substances that would require warnings as per California's Prop 65.
During the production of Eastman cellulosic yarn, production solvents and material waste are recycled back into the system for reuse. Water returned to source streams is processed in their state-of-the-art, bioactive wastewater processing facility and is routinely tested to ensure that the biodiversity of the local river is receiving clean and safe water. Naia™ is certified bio based under the USDA BioPreferred® program, unlike generic viscose, polyester, and nylon.
