Jute is biodegradable and 100% natural material, consisting of plant fibres such as cellulose and lignin, obtained from the white jute plant. Jute is environmentally friendly as it requires less land to cultivate, which means that growing jute preserves more natural habitats and wilderness for another species to flourish. Jute plants can absorb up to 15 tons of carbon dioxide and release 11 tons of oxygen, thus purifying the environment.
A fabric pot provides healthier growing environment for a plant, letting the oxygen to circulate better in the pot. In addition, jute UGroBag prevents roots circling allowing them to grow into the material fibre.
It depends on the use you’re giving to it. If your’re using UGroBag as an outdoor pot and it is in constant contact to the soil, UGroBag is going to degrade sooner because of its biodegradable characteristic. It can be solved if you lift the pot with any kind of support (like a pallet, a tile, etc.). Nevertheless, UGroBag can be re-use more than one time. If you’re using UGroBag as a decorative element, you’ll keep it for very long.
Yes, our UGroBag can be used with all type of substrates, but we could recommend our UGroCoco substrate. Both our products complement themselves very well, this would allow for a natural and eco-friendly gardening.
