Plastic bags are a pain these days, we know they are no good but we've been force fed them at a silly rate over the past 20 years. Increasing not only our reliance on them but the acceptance around them too. Now the alternatives are largely either expensive or not that much better for the environment ,or convenience, we really need something a little better.
Jute is the superstar performer in terms of eco-friendly materials and is strong, reusable and looks great too.
Not only being a really positive ecological alternative the ethical benefits are great too. The process behind stripping Jute for production into fibres can only be carried out by hand which ensures employement in a sustainable workforce for those involved in it's production.
These bags from Cissy Wears are beautifully hand woven with fair trade materials in Bangladesh by women engaged in a women's uplift programme.
