MATERIALS - natural, biodegradable, sustainable
Jute is a natural fibre which is biodegradable and sustainably grown. Mainly grown in Bangladesh and India, jute is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertiliser or pesticides (unlike cotton). It's referred to as the ‘golden fibre’ due to its colour and cost-effectiveness.
Jute's key features are:
Strong - used in sacks and industrial applications, jute is a robust material for New Zealand conditions
100% Biodegradable – jute degrades naturally to provide nutrients to sustain your plants
100% Natural – no plastic! Jute is a natural fibre
Sustainable – jute requires few inputs apart from rain and produces a crop every six months
Durable - jute can last several years if kept dry, but in the planting environment will begin to break down after 1-2 years depending on how wet it is.
Bamboo is another natural product we use for stakes. Like jute, it requires no inputs apart from a hot and wet climate. Bamboo stakes are robust and reusable, but will also break down naturally over time.
