Looking for a sustainable jute bag that is made with love? Then the jute bag from Ramya is for you!
Ramya lives in Sri Lanka and she has written a letter herself about her bags and why she makes them. We have the letter below.
"Hi, I am Rama, a little girl and an entrepreneur from Sri Lanka. I desire to create new things and make things beautiful. I love nature. Nature is our life-supporting system from the fresh air we breathe to the clean water we drink, nature provides the essentials we all rely on for our survival and well-being.
And it also holds the key to prosperity with millions of livelihoods and much of our economic activity depending on the natural world. We know that we are losing nature faster than it can. Restore itself. So I choose my path to self employ seemed to be an eco-friendly product.
Every year, around 500 billion plastic and larger bags are used worldwide. So many that one million bags are being every minute and they’re damaging our environment. As poly bags are made from petroleum and are non-biodegradable; and manufacturing paper bags require large quantities of wood, it is advised to use jute bags which are made from renewable natural fibers. And jute bags are reusable. Environment friendly, do not require maintenance. Especially 100% bio-degradable and recyclable. Jute has good insulating and antistatic properties, low thermal conductivity and moderate moisture regain. Strong and can carry more weight as compared to promotional carry bags. Durable and long-lasting, not easy to tear as plastic and paper bags do.
So I love to motivate everyone to use jute products
I design to respect nature and guarantee the health of soils, water, and air, organic leads to sustainability practices. Jute material doesn’t have harsh chemicals and it’s more durable than poly-materials."
Every jute bag from Ramya is unique.
