Environment Friendly Jute Cultivation
Jute is a natural fiber and used to make things such as sacks, rope, twine, hessian bags and much more. Jute products are 100% biodegradable and can also be disposed of without causing environmental hazards. It is being used extensively around the world especially considering its outstanding environmental benefits. So, the cultivation of jute locally may fetch the following environmental benefits:
Less fertilizer/ pesticides: Relatively less quantity of fertilizer / pesticide is required for jute cultivation – especially in comparison to cotton
Improves soil conditions: With jute cultivation, large portions of leaves and roots remain with the soil and results in improved soil fertility.
Improves other crops: When jute is rotated with other crops, it improves the health of those crops and reduces their risk of attracting pests and diseases
Jute cleans the air: Studies indicate that one hectare of jute plants can consume up to 15 tons of carbon dioxide and release 11 tons of oxygen during the jute growing season
Jute has high biological efficiency: Jute can be harvested within four to five months
Pakistan Papersack Activities
We at Pakistan Papersack, consider ourselves to be friends of the environment. This philosophy has led to several collaborations with WWF including most recently in April when the two parties joined Lucky Cement to plant trees at Lucky Cement’s factory. Earlier in March, the PPD team also planted a 100 mangrove trees at the WWF Wetland Center. Mangroves are synonymous with the Karachi coast and the team was brought closer to nature as they visited the mangrove forest. A beach cleaning drive followed during which the employees removed hazardous plastic items from the Sandspit beach.
