Ecology

OUR   CERTIFICATION

As a buyer or consumer you can choose to participate in the fight against climate change by minimizing your Carbon Footprint.

Jute is one of the most ecological fibres available on the market today (see below). As with all human activity, however, the treatment of raw materials and the manufacturing and transport of finished products inevitably lead to some CO2 and other Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.

3R Eco™ compensates these emissions by financing the construction of a wind power plant in India so that all traces of CO2 are COMPLETELY eliminated.

3R VE

Jute is a natural fibre which conforms naturally to the 3R VE’s:

Reduce :

Jute production reduces the use of toxic, non-renewable inputs such as petroleum. Source reduction also  maximizes renewable resources;


Reuse: 

Jute is known worldwide for its sturdiness and quality; according to the European Commission, jute bags are reusable more than 300 times. This level of quality allows you to reduce your ecological footprint by minimizing landfill sites.

Recycle :

This is to give a product a second life by giving it a different use and putting it back into circulation.

Value-add:

More than conforming to the 3R’s, jute is also biodegradable and compostable.

Ethical:

We comply with and apply the standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO): banning of child and forced labour, the application of labour laws, freedom of association and collective bargaining; employment security. More information on ILO standards…
