The benefits of Jute Bags
Jute bags are considered an eco-friendly choice because of their natural and biodegradable properties. Jute is a vegetable fibre that is obtained from the stem of the jute plant, which is a fast-growing and renewable resource. This makes the jute bag a great sustainable option as an alternative to single-use plastic bags for many reasons, discussed below.
Here at Cotton Bag Co, we stock a range of pre-made jute bags in the UK that you can print your message on, so they can be sustainably friendly and great looking! Available as bespoke printed, express printed and plain/wholesale.
What makes jute bags eco-friendly
Jute is a biodegradable material
Jute is a biodegradable material, meaning that it can break down naturally in the environment without causing harm. This means if the bag comes to the end of its life purpose, then it’s not going to release toxic elements into the ground.
In contrast, plastic bags, which are commonly used for shopping and other purposes, are not biodegradable and can take hundreds of years to break down. This is the difference between night and day for the environment and waste pollution.
Therefore, investing in a sustainable material like jute will also show your customers, work colleagues and friends that you are actively doing good to help plastic waste and the environment. The more jute bags there are out there, others may actively seek to make the change themselves.
Made from a durable material
Jute bags are not only biodegradable but also durable, which makes them a great option for carrying heavy items. For example, this can include heavy work documents or grocery shopping. This means that the initial life span for your jute bag will outlast many single-use plastic bags.
The durable material also means you will be able to use your jute bag for other uses, or the bag can be recycled and made into something else. For example, if you had a tote jute bag, you could take the material and make it into a sustainable decoration for your home. Or, you could use the material for a future work project, for example, rope, twine and matting.
In summary, jute bags are an eco-friendly choice as they are biodegradable, durable, and can be reused multiple times. Our jute bags come in a range of colours and sizes and can be screen printed up to six colours.
