Recognising the urgency to tackle the issues posed by non-flushable wipes in municipal water systems, Acmemills has commissioned new state-of-the-art equipment to enhance Natura's production capabilities. With the introduction of a 2.4-metre and 3.5-metre-wide hydroentangled line, Acmemills is equipped to meet the increasing demand for flushable wipes while maintaining the highest quality standards.
Natura sets itself apart through the utilisation of 100 per cent natural fibres, derived from sustainable bamboo pulp. Bamboo, renowned for its rapid growth and minimal ecological impact, serves as the primary source fibre for Natura production.
The need for flushable alternatives has become particularly pressing due to recent legislation introduced in California and Europe. These regulations target the disposal of plastic personal hygiene wipes and aim to minimise their impact on wastewater treatment systems. Natura's innovative solution addresses these concerns head-on by offering flushable wipes that are compatible with municipal water systems, reducing the strain on infrastructure and minimising the risk of environmental damage, the company said in a press release.
"We are thrilled to introduce Natura as the ultimate solution to the environmental challenges posed by non-flushable wipes," said Matt Utley, CSO of Acmemills. "Our investment in cutting-edge technology, combined with our commitment to sustainable sourcing, demonstrates our dedication to providing eco-conscious consumers with a reliable and responsible choice. Natura not only offers an effective alternative, but it also contributes to the well-being of our planet."
