Numo manufacturing is introducing Yulex, a base based substitution for neoprene.

You can see the full Yulex line at

Here is what Numo has to say about the new line.

Yulex is the world’s first natural, plant-based replacement for polychloroprene (aka neoprene) foam. Originally created
in partnership with Patagonia for their neoprene-free wetsuit. Yulex contains the only FSC-certified pure, plantbased rubber. Sustainably produced from renewable rubber tree forests, this material enables us to create highperforming, environmentally-conscious products.

Our newest collection, Yulex, brings together the latest in planet-first materials with our wide range of shapes, creating a better product for our customer and the planet. Because WHEN WE KNOW BETTER, WE CAN DO BETTER

High-performance gear that is both conflict-free and eco-responsible. Think tough & sustainable. Super-luxe & buttery smooth. Made from plant-based, FSC-certified rubber. Free from harmful allergens and contaminants. 60+ shapes, from laptop sleeves to totes and beyond. Fully customizable, dual sided print.”

Yulex is another resource for those companies focusing on a sustainability theme in their marketing. Yulex is also works for companies and non-profits that are past of the sustainable eco-system.

If you are interested in these products to promote your own business, or if you wish to see some samples, email for information and pricing.

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy, 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable/recycled/recyclable products if possible.
