Juco, new eco-alternative to cotton is launched

Nov '09
Jutexpo Limited, the UK's leading supplier of eco-friendly jute bags, announced the launch of its new Juco range. Juco is made from 75% jute and 25% cotton and has been developed to take the best properties of both fibres to create an ecological alternative to cotton and canvas bags that:

- Is just as strong and reusable
- Is produced from a sustainable resource
- Has a lower carbon footprint
- Has a lower water footprint
- Has a lower overall ecological impact

The current drive to reduce landfill waste has meant that demand for reusable bags has increased – but not every reusable bag is good for the environment when factors such as sustainability, carbon footprint and water footprint are considered.

Jute is one of the most important natural fibres in the world and is a completely sustainable resource. It is a natural alternative to plastic and as the production process for jute bags is predominately manual, their carbon footprint is low. In addition, the crop is mainly rain-fed with little need for fertilisers or pesticides, so the water footprint is also low.

Juco, made from 75% jute, has all the qualities and versatility of jute and cotton, so can be used in much the same way – shopping bags, fashion bags, wine bottle bags and sandwich bags to name but a few of its applications. With its environmental credentials it is the most ecologically-friendly alternative to cotton and canvas-based products.

Barrie Turner, CEO of Jutexpo says: 'By combining the best characteristics of jute and cotton, we have provided a new eco-friendly alternative to help drive the reduction of plastic bags and landfill waste in our environment.'

Jutexpo Limited is the UK's leading provider of ethically-produced jute and juco bags. The bags are frequently used as an ecologically-friendly replacement for plastic and cotton bags and are regularly seen on most high streets.
