This has prompted the consumers to shift towards environment-friendly products and adopt viable alternatives to harmful materials such as plastic, especially in western countries. Additionally, the ban on the use of plastic bags by many governments due to their non-biodegradable nature has positively affected the demand for jute bags in these regions. Moreover, the diverse product portfolio, option of customization and scope of experimenting with various styles, designs, patterns, shapes and sizes has widened the consumer base of jute bags.
