Jute, is a fibrous plant and has been around since 500-800 BC. It is made from natural fibers that are biodegradable. This plant is grown and cultivated mostly in India, like hemp and bamboo. It is definitely a sustainable plant. It is non-toxic, reusable, sturdy, strong, and light.
Why Use Jute Bags?
Millions of plastic bags are used every year in the United States. Most of the plastic bags end up in landfills. Plastic bags are not biodegradable and will take centuries for the bags to become particles. Jute bags on the other hand, are the perfect solution to this big problem. They contain no synthetics, plastic or chemicals.
Our Jute bags have unique designs, are foldable and will require very little cleaning.
Burlap, also known as Hessian and Gunny cloth, is light fibres coarse woven fabric usually made from skin of the jute plant or sisal fibres, which may be combined with other vegetable fibres to make many different products. Common uses are rope, nets, rugs, sacks, clothing and the similar.
Bamboo is an eco friendly plant-based fibre. Bamboo material has a luxuriously soft feel, that is naturally hypoallergenic, insulating, antibacterial, moisture- absorbent and quick drying. The fiber is naturally smooth and can look and feel like silk or very soft cotton. can be washed and is 100% biodegradable.
Stone paper, is a type of strong and durable paper-like material made from calcium carbonate. It's durable, tear-resistant, has no grain, can withstand water, grease and dirt. It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, recyclable, no wood, pulp, acid, bleach or waste water used in its production, conserving energy and reducing carbon dioxide emissions linked to global warming.
Hemp is made from the fibres in the herbaceous plant. It's a high-yield crop that produces significantly more fibre per acre than cotton. Organic hemp can be grown without herbicides or pesticides, uses less water, improves the soil quality, lasts up to 3x’s longer than cotton, is very soft, naturally resistant to mold, ultraviolet light and is highly durable.
Organic cotton is grown in countries such as India, Turkey, and USA from non-genetically modified plants, and without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers/pesticides. Benefits include protecting the ecosystem, reducing waste of water, and ensuring a safer working environment for the farmers and manufacturers.
Compared to regular cotton, the plants are rotated from one soil to another, so nutrients retain water for a long time, requiring less irrigation which leads to healthier crops. It is also softer and uses safer alternatives to chemical dyes and whiteners.
Materials made from Mushrooms
Mycelium Fibers is a dense fibrous root of mushrooms that live beneath the soil. They clean up toxic debris and contaminated soil by a process called mycoremediation. This fiber can break down harmful pollutants and chemicals. It can be used to make household insulation, furniture, packing foam, replace some plastics, styrofoam, and other materials that are hard to recycle and are harmful to the environment.
Mushroom made materials are bio-based, compostable and are environmentally safe. Leather (Muskin), brick, and clothing are also being made from various mushrooms.
Beeswrap is an organic, reusable, paper material that is 100% biodegradable.
Made from 100% recycled paper products. The boxes are reusable and also biodegradable.
