A Farmer harvesting jute from the field in Faridpur, Bangladesh. jute is one of the world’s most eco-friendly fibres to produce. That’s because it’s completely biodegradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly. A hectare of jute plants consumes about 15 tonnes of carbon dioxide and releases 11 tonnes of oxygen. Cultivating jute in crop rotations enriches the fertility of the soil for the next crop. Jute also does not generate toxic gases when burnt. It’s not only eco-friendly but sustainable.
