Juco has all the versatility of both jute and cotton, so can be used in much the same way.
More and more people are becoming aware of the problems that come along with using single-use plastic bags. As such, a whole host of eco-friendly bagging materials have experienced a surge in popularity. Businesses can now choose to offer bags made from natural materials, including canvas, cotton, and jute, and there’s now a whole new contender: juco.
Of course, many people are still entirely unaware of the advantages offered by jute alone, so it only makes sense to cover those first. Known as ‘the golden fibre jute is a long vegetable fibre that can be spun into very strong threads. In fact, it has been used for thousands of years. Completely biodegradable, a bag made from jute will decompose quickly, though the material can also be recycled several times before it needs to be disposed of. Requiring less attention and fewer resources to grow than cotton, it’s the perfect material for developing communities to farm, and it can even rehabilitate land made unhealthy for other crops.
Beyond eco-friendliness, jute works wonderfully as a bagging material since it is extremely strong, UV-resistant, and stretches only an insignificant amount, regardless of the weight being carried.
Juco bags retain all those compelling benefits by using 75% jute, but the 25% cotton also does its part. Blending jute with cotton makes for a significantly tighter weave than could be achieved. Additionally, the cotton percentage makes juco a little softer and more flexible.
Jute itself is still considered something of niche bagging material, so it should go without saying that juco bags are even less widely-known. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strongly consider picking some up for your business. The advantages of juco can’t stay secret for long, and it’s always nice to be ahead of the curve.
