PGI uses natural fibers in the majority of its nonwoven products. These fibers are based on cellulose, a natural polymer that forms part of all vegetation. PGI's nonwoven products are made of fibers found in nature, including:
• Viscose (Rayon): most common, produced from wood
• Exotic Natural: examples, bamboo or stinging nettle
• Poly Lactic Acid (PLA ):produced from corn or sugar beet, gives fabric qualities similar to petroleum-based fibers.
These fibers are friendly to the environment because they are biodegradable and some, depending on product, compostable (degrade within 12weeks). These raw materials are made from renewable, generally sustainable resources.
