Jute - our Reusable Future

Jute Bags are fast becoming the path forward in our reusable future.

Although they are bigger & heavier than most of the alternatives.  The small amount of additional fuel for transportation is quickly offset by the vast number of benefits offered in other areas.

Jute is a 100% natural fibre & there's no need for any additional man-made ingredients.

Jute is grown using similar methods to that of organic farming where crops are rotated seasonally & there are no herbicides or pesticides used.

Jute has no need for genetic modification.  It's a very hardy plant that grows to harvestable maturity in 4-6 months.

The whole Jute plant is used.  The inner section is used to create the Jute fibres for making products like bags, twine/rope, paper, shoes, carpet backing.  Then the outer section & leaves are used as firewood.

Harvest is between July & October with the primary growing region in the Bengal area (India & Bangladesh).  There are other regions producing Jute - such as China & Brazil.

Jute is the smart choice for a range of reasons.

How would it possible to have natural fibre with man-made ingredients. Jute printed bags are most likely to use in the market.

Hi Jessica -- thanks for your post.

The man-made ingredients are namely herbicides & pesticides, plus the fertilisers needed for other crops.

The need for fertilisers increases as the top-soil is eroded.
