Lululemon has made an unspecified investment in Genomatica to help develop renewably sourced and bio-based material for its own product line. They plan to create plant-based nylon to replace synthetic nylon, using biotechnology and fermentation to convert plant-based ingredients into chemical building blocks, like those used to make nylon, that are then converted to pellets and yarns. The partnership is intended to help Lululemon reach the goal of making 100 percent of its products with sustainable materials and end-of-use solutions by 2030.
