Organic Canvas & Jute X-Large Tote & Grocery Bags are made of 55% organic cotton canvas and 45% jute (burlap). Jute is a rain-fed crop that does not require irrigation, chemical fertiliser, or pesticides. Organic cotton does not allow chemical fertilisers or pesticides but does have an irrigation requirement. Since our natural canvas panels are unprocessed, water is spared in washing and dyeing. Jute and organic canvas fibres are also completely bio-degradable and recyclable, making for a very environmentally friendly product. Jute is known as the ÒThe Golden FibreÓ for both its natural golden silky shine and for its importance as a sustainable crop. Plants are grown in warm and wet monsoon climates, during the monsoon season of the Ganges Delta in India and Bangladesh. Fibres are stripped from the bark of the plant and dried. Cultivation takes around 120 days, so it is a highly sustainable crop. Jute is second only to cotton as the most used fibre in the world, due to its affordability and ease of cultivation. Made in India, the durable 330ml organic cotton canvas panels are certified according to Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) for ecology & social responsibility. Jute, as a natural native plant, has not been exposed any highly toxic pesticides, fertilisers and processing chemicals, but it has no official organic certification standard. This bag is a great low cost alternative to synthetic fabric bags. Polyester, nylon and polypropylene fabrics are made from oil, NOT natural, NOT sustainable and NOT biodegradable.
