Burlington Industries LLC, a division of Elevate Textiles, is excited to offer customers the next level of sustainable innovations—a plant-based odor control solution. Partnering with Life Natural, Burlington has incorporated their unique odor control technology to provide the most environmentally-conscious, effective textile solutions as one of its many steps towards a more sustainable future.
As part of their Odorblock™ offering, Burlington is pleased to introduce sustainable technology that uses the bacteria-fighting power of plants to control perspiration odors and preserve the freshness of fabric. Life Natural is a bio-based odor control technology that uses peppermint oil as the key active ingredient. The essential oil of peppermint is extracted using steaming, excluding any use of solvents or other chemicals. This technology aligns with Burlington’s sustainability priorities and contains no silver or other metals, is renewable, natural, and still extremely durable. When the odor is reduced, the fabric requires less laundering, ultimately helping to reduce microplastic shedding, water waste, and ocean pollution.
“This natural odor-blocking technology gives us the ability to offer our customers the next step in eco-friendly fabric solutions,” said Andrew Hicks, Burlington Sales Manager. “As a leader in sustainable innovations, Burlington is not only dedicated to offering the most effective, high-performance technologies, but also the most environmentally friendly and renewable solutions. We are constantly searching for opportunities to work with like-minded companies to push forward to the next, most sustainable step for our brand and for the industry.”
Odorblock™ is Burlington’s collection of odor control technologies that absorbs and stops odor-causing bacteria from sticking to the fabric, keeping fabric fresher for longer. Developed by Burlington Labs, this technology is factory applied, durable, and non-migrating, providing hygienic freshness while preventing staining and deterioration.
