Burlap Bags offer versatility and affordability

Feb. 26th, 2015

Burlap bags are pretty much an all-around, extremely versatile product. They’re used in numerous industries like gardening, farming, landscaping, manufacturing, trucking, interior design, and many others.

Burlap bags are a great alternative to products such as plastics and other synthetic or man-made materials, because they’re completely biodegradable and great for the environment. They’re also either on par with or better than the aforementioned alternatives, which is great for consumers, because it can put their minds at ease.

Burlap is great for a number of reasons, one being that the fabric lets oxygen, nutrients and water through to the soil while blocking weeds from getting in. It also protects topsoil and plants from erosion when placed over them. Burlap helps retain warmth during the winter, and moisture in the summer. It’s also a sustainable, natural product.

When pouring concrete, burlap bags aid in holding in moisture, allowing concrete to cure better. As a wonderful storage solution, burlap is ideal for organizing absolutely anything that needs good air circulation. Finally, burlap works great and inexpensively with gardens when growing smaller crops.
