Take a look at this cozy, sustainable, handmade by my mum, plant holder.
Why is it sustainable? Because it is made from jute.
Jute is grown very similarly to cotton – except with the enormous difference that it uses much less water, requires no chemical pesticides and fertilizers to grow, and replenishes much faster. Some of the plus points are:
– completely biodegradable,
– jute grows without the use of fertilizers and pesticides
-It relies on natural rainfall, rather than extensive and hugely consuming irrigation systems.
-enhances the fertility of the soil it grows on for future crops
– Jute reaches maturity quickly, between 4-6 months
