Have you come across a video online where some people are trying to pull out the plastic from insides of a turtle? If you have then you must be aware of the fact that almost all the plastic you throw away gets carried away in the ocean and kills marine life. 

If you’ve been updating yourself with the current happenings in the world then you must be aware of the fact that the use of plastic has caused many animals their lives and is very harmful to the environment as it is non-recyclable. We, humans, have been consuming plastic because it’s easily available and is cheap but we don’t know how many lives it can cost. Even if we did decide to recycle the plastic, the material somehow ends up in the ocean and landfills and is dumped which is not healthy for our environment. The recent ban or trying to ban plastic announcements all over the world has started taking a toll over India too as people have started to cut back on plastic and shifted to materials like cloth or jute for their daily use.

Why is Jute the only organic alternative to plastic?

Jute is a very affordable and better replacement for the plastic for everyone because it is a natural vegetable plant that grows easily and is easy and very affordable to harvest.  These bags or materials are not a threat to the environment and are long-lasting. Jute tends to keep its strength for a longer period and is very helpful in keeping the environment healthy and clean. 

How Jute will help in India’s economy?

Usage of jute as a replacement of plastic will also help the Indian economy to grow in a way that jute’s production does not require much farming space and is eco-friendly whereas the plastic is made using billions of barrels of petroleum which is a non-renewable energy resource. Switching to a source, which is eco-friendly as well as environment-friendly, will help in increasing the economy rate of India. The cultivation process of the jute requires rotation techniques that improve the fertility of the soil for the next crop. Another adding advantage of using jute bags over plastic is the cost. Plastic bags may cost less but can’t be reused again but on the other hand, jute bags or jute carry bags can cost a little more than plastic but are good for the long run as they are durable. 

Jute is a natural fiber, which absorbs the carbon dioxide and releases oxygen at a rate several times higher than trees. So, replacing plastic with jute bags is not only environment-friendly but also helps maintain our health well. 

Advantages of using Jute over Plastic-

  • Strong and highly durable 
  • One of the cheapest natural materials
  • 100% biodegradable 
  • Long-lasting and can be used multiple times 
  • Natural Fibre
  • No threat to our Earth
  • Preserve hygiene
