Why a jute bag and not a plastic bag?

Jute is an environmentally friendly and durable raw material for bags. This is different from plastic bags. 80% of all litter waste on the planet consists of plastic and is very harmful to the environment. In addition, only 6.8% of the plastic produced is recycled, where does the rest of the plastic waste go? Biodegradation of plastic takes more than 20 years!

Jute, on the other hand, is a natural product that is biodegradable. A jute bag is therefore not harmful to the environment. In addition, jute bags are also more durable and stronger. Below are some advantages of jute versus plastic bags:
