Environmental and Product Information
The following information is provided to help you understand the purpose behind the use of environmentally preferable materials in our eco products and to outline some of the benefits of their use.
Organic Cotton Bags & Jute Bags
Cotton is a wonderfully versatile, breathable, absorbent, soft fibre of global importance. But the farming, irrigation and pest control practices of conventionally grown cotton are proving problematic for the planet.
Gradually a new option is becoming available, with more cotton being grown organically (no pesticides or fungicides) and sometimes without irrigation. Initially available in clothing, towels and bed linen, organic cotton is now being used in a wider variety of fabric applications, including T-shirts, bags and caps. While supplies are still limited, there is no doubt that the spread of organically grown cotton will continue, saving water, soils, energy and preventing chemical pollution.
JUTE BAGS: Jute is a versatile, natural fibre that has been used for centuries to make things such as rope, twine, hessian bags, rugs, and more. It is completely biodegradable, and requires less cultivation and maintenance than cotton.
