#FantasticFibers – How sustainable is your fashion?

Creating wealth from pineapple waste: profitable farming and clean fashion

Pineapple farming happens year-round, giving family farmers an assured source of income. LPMPC, a Philippine cooperative of pineapple farmers sells the fruit and pineapple-based products such as juice and jam. However, it is a waste product that offers the greatest profit: fibers extracted from pineapple leaves. 

Trias NGO partners with LPMPC to increase production and fiber processing in a sustainable way. Fibers are transformed into Piñatex®, a sustainable textile that serves as an alternative to leather. Discover this unique project that positively impacts people, planet and prosperity!
