Throughout the supply chain, Nativ Basics strive to make sustainable choices, with a combination of recycled and sustainable materials, as well as the best-practice methods selected for minimisation of carbon, waste and water footprint. The aim is to be part of the solution for a better planet, but not to do it alone.
Each and every product we design and bring to the market aligns with our core values of creating sustainable products and giving more choices for likeminded women. Our underwear strives towards a balance of comfort, sustainability and price point that suit all women.
Nativ Classics and Cheeky G’s
The Nativ Classics and Cheeky G’s are made with TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres. Our authentic manufacturers of the material have a commendable reputation for their environmentally responsible closed-loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibres with high resource efficiency and low environmental impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. The material has been carefully selected for its minimal footprint on both carbon and water resources.
Nativ Comforts – Period and Leak Proof
Created with high-performance triple-layer technology these high-waisted, seamless underpants will help comfort you during those “lady moments”, so you can be confident with periods, incontinence and sweat!
The waste from tampons, pads, and panty-liners along with their packaging generate more than 200,000 tonnes of waste per year, making it a major contributor to our environmental crisis. We at Nativ Basics believe that this is an avoidable outcome, and by choosing Nativ Comforts you are contributing to the minimisation of these serious environmental concerns.
The Nativ Comfort range has been designed to deliver the best possible level of comfort at times when lady’s need it most. They offer an alternative solution to tampons, pads and panty liners that deliver the personal comfort of high-quality material on the skin, the confidence of knowing you are protected from leaks and marks, as well as the ethical comfort of being environmentally conscious and minimising waste.
Nativ Tissue Paper and Stickers
All ink used on Nativ Basics packaging products is soy based and is made from soybeans. As opposed to traditional petroleum-based ink, soy-based ink is more environmentally friendly.
Our tissue paper is proudly supplied by the company "No Issue". The paper is acid free and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which is an organisation that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. The FSC ensures customers have the option to choose forest products like paper and wood that have been sourced in an environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner.
Acid free paper is paper that is infused in water that yields a neutral or basic pH (7 or slightly greater). It is also lignin and sulfur free.
We have already learnt volumes from our journey, and we’re determined to continue our pledge to make things better. This will require finding and engaging with more like-minded partners in the supply chain and delivering everyday products with as little footprint as possible.
