Jute is a 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly material and does not pollute our environments like plastic and poly, and we should encourage the usage of jute bags so that we can also contribute to our environment to make our planet clean and healthy place to live in.
Jute can be grown year-round and is harvested every six months. It can take decades to produce the same volume of wood fiber and it requires much larger tracts of land to cultivate. Jute is very strong and highly durable, 100% biodegradable (it degrades biologically in 1 to 2 years), low-energy recyclable, and cause no threat to the environment. Carrying of products in a Jute bag no threat to hygiene.
Jute bags can be used multiple times. Plastic bags are made to use once only, thus, it is seen that lots of such things are dumped in the face of waterways, sewage, parks, beaches, or streets.
Best of all, jute absorbs huge amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and when combined with reduced deforestation it may help reduce or reverse global warming. Studies have indeed shown that, one hectare of jute plants can absorb up to 15 tons of carbon dioxide and release 11 tons of oxygen during the jute growing season (about 100 days), which is very good for our environment and planet.
