The Move To Net Zero, Nylon-Free
It's hoped that the partnership — Samsara’s first drive into the clothing sector and Lululemon’s first minority investment in a recycling company — will drastically reduce carbon emissions and overall reliance on fossil fuels. “Nylon remains our biggest opportunity to achieve our 2030 sustainable product goals,” Dandapure added.
The move away from traditional nylon production has stayed in the company’s sights for some time. In April, Lululemon debuted its first products made from renewably sourced, plant-based nylon, which involves the use of fermenting plant sugars to create the chemical compounds used to make the nylon alternative.
More broadly, the company has channeled efforts into its Like New resale, trade-in, and re-commerce program, allowing shoppers to swap their clothing for gift cards both in-store and online.
