The Future is Jute

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

Although they are bigger and 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 and 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 and 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 and leaves are used as firewood.

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

Jute is the smart choice for a range of reasons.
