Jute bags, bamboo bags, straw bags, and paper bags are all about summer. Although there are dummy basket bags are available in acrylic material for those who are unaware of its toxicity and only think about fast and cheap fashion. Well, it’s not that I’m not fashionable but I do care about things I’m purchasing, shouldn’t cause any cost to the environment. That’s why I found jute bags best to the price point, sustainability and also wearability.
For those who don’t know that jute is a plant like cotton and it is produced in the plains of India and Bangladesh on a larger basis. It is 100% biodegradable and reusable and doesn’t cause any harm to health and the environment. And it’s not that acrylic bags are available at the cheap price, they are even more expensive than jute, straw or paper bags. Acrylic is a synthetic material made from plastic in a similar manner to polyester and nylon which may cause cancer.
My goal is not to scare you but create awareness about things we wear or use on the name of fashion or for a lifestyle, Know what you use. You can always find options according to your suitability. In that case, using Jute bags or straw bags are a relief. We can see straw bags everywhere nowadays but jute bags aren’t so popular but they are even better and more beautiful than straw or bamboo bags. They are must-have wardrobe essentials for summer.
How to find the right one-
There are a lot of stores like, MANGO, ZARA, H&M, TOPSHOP, & OTHER STORIES, etc. who sell Jute, straw or bamboo bags on different prices and in different designs. Premium brands like CULT GAIA have launched their designer “ARK” bags both sustainable and unsustainable from price range $100 to $1000. You can find the similar Ark ones in much affordable range. I usually prefer crossbody or tote ones because they are very wearable and practical and I can actually use them to keep my belongings in. I always check the product for 100% sustainability and also for the price.
