The most eco-friendly green bag is made from 100% sustainable and biodegradable jute, no petrochemicals, no plastic lining.

Free from petrochemicals, sun-grown jute is a natural, stylish choice for the eco-aware. This attractive green bag is made from strong, heavy woven jute.

Some supermarkets are now stocking jute-looking bags also, but notice that the inside is still coated in plastic. The jute weave is loose to keep down costs and so it has to be coated in plastic inside. That means it can not be buried in your garden to biodegrade.

you are making a difference:

  • Jute is a long, soft, shiny plant fibre that can be spun into coarse strong threads. It is 100% naturally biodegradable and is one of the most abundant natural fibres.
  • Unlike polypropylene 'green bags' this bag is free from synthetic petrochemicals and at the end of its useful life will safely biodegrade.
  • Responsibly-made in Bangladesh with BRAC, the largest Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) in the world. BRAC supports the livelihoods of over 70% (100 million) of Bangladesh’s population through its social, health and education programs. Sustainable employment is provided for 35,000 underprivileged rural artisans, 85% of whom are women.
  • The artisans who make these bags earn a wage, enabling them to aim to lift their families above subsistence levels.

features:

  • All bags are handworked so small irregularities may appear.
  • Ethically sourced as well as being naturally recyclable, they are the "next step” for socially-concerned shoppers and retailers. Your business logo or corporate message can be printed onto the bags (minimum quantities apply).

dimensions:

32cm x 34cm plus handles. Natural colour available only.

Made in Bangladesh.

Comment : Very strong bags, I suspect might even outlive me. Looks as though it can hold several kilos (It held a 5L cask without a problem). As expected, the woven jute is thick and relatively inflexible, so it doesn't fold up compactly like thinner cotton or supermarket 'green' bags. Save these for your groceries, and get some cotton bags for carrying clothes etc, because little stringy bits from the jute will get on the fabric.
