What do weedblock, diapers & wipes have in common?

They can all be made from a completely new and innovative material that delivers on performance and environmental concerns.  It's called Ingeo fiber, an ingenious new material made from plants not oil.  Choosing Ingeo fibers for skincare, apparel, furniture components, baby care products, personal hygiene goods or gardening supplies can result in 50% less non-renewable energy and 75% less greenhouse gases over traditional fibers (1).

Produced in all shapes and forms, Ingeo nonwovens can help transform the world even if it's just one baby diaper at a time.
