Lululemon has launched its first t-shirts made from plant-based nylon as part of a long-term partnership with sustainable materials leader Geno.
The products are a result of a 2021 partnership born from Lululemon’s equity investment in biotechnology company Geno.
The shirts are made from at least 50% biologically sourced nylon, at least 40% recycled polyester and 3% elastane which is made with 30% plant-based content.
Customers won’t have to worry about paying more for Lululemon’s environmentally friendly t-shirts as they cost the same as the conventional versions.
Lululemon aims to make 100% of its products with sustainable materials by 2030. Therefore, the activewear giant has forged partnerships with several companies that make innovative sustainable materials.
In February 2022, Lululemon launched a meditation and yoga mat bag and the Lululemon barrel duffel bag made out of mycelium-based leather from Mylo.
