Cellulose

Cellulose

Rayon, modal, and lyocell produced from renewable cellulosic plants such Bamboo, Beech trees, and pine trees. All three fibers are biodegradable. Lenzing Viscose and Lenzing Modal produced from sustainable harvested beech trees and Tencel from sustainably harvested eucalyptus trees. Eucalyptus grows quickly and without irrigation, pesticides, fertilizers or genetic manipulation; it can also be planted on marginal land that cannot be used for food crops. The fiber yield per acre from the trees used in the Lenzing fibre is up to ten times higher than that of cotton. In addition, cotton needs up to 20 times more water. Lenzing has been given organic certification and award for Tencel which is not normal as regenerated fibers do not qualify for organic certification.
