Why do many markets choose distinctive jute grocery bags?
For farmers market bags, nothing beats the intrinsic natural appeal of jute fibre.
Jute farming is a very labour intensive process, comprising 60%-70% of total production costs, which produces very low monetary rewards on a per hectare or per ton basis. It has been estimated that 215 man-days of labour are required per ton of fibre, and a farmer will often earn less than US$0.70 per day for their work.
Jute farmers usually rotate their jute crop with rice. Since they are situated in very high rainfall areas, these farmers have limited crop choices, making jute the crop of choice in such locations.
It is important that when sourcing materials and products to not only choose environmentally friendly options, but ethically derived ones too. By choosing jute products you help protect our natural environment, and provide support for families who rely on jute farming to survive.
