Germany's Hemp and Bangladesh's Jute: The Future of Two Natural Fibres

The Wire

Bangladesh is the world's second-largest jute producer and is home to around 30 lakh jute farmers. But even as the jute industry struggles under regular flooding of the farms and low farmer income, one entrepreneur has put faith in the jute industry of the country. His company Sonali Bags is creating plastic bags out of jute that are sustainable and durable.

Another natural fibre that's making a comeback in Europe despite an 'image problem' is Hemp. A handful of German companies, with the help of some relaxed government norms, are producing eco-friendly Hemp products.
