Thus, they have developed a specific reputation for crafting and sourcing sustainable products on behalf of Earth. The astonishing renew-ability and versatility of natural fibers and recycled materials creates lots of new ecologically positive possibilities at a time when they are desperately needed. It’s the Anji Mountain mission to bring these wonderful resources to as wide an audience as possible.

Simple things we can do to protect our planet….

Most in society agree that global warming is happening. However, the harm that the human race has done to our natural world is reversible—at least to an extent. If we delay modifications to our behavior and practices we do so at the peril of future generations and ourselves. Choosing products made from natural fibers instead of synthetic fibers is a small step towards reversing man-made damage to our planet but it’s an important one.

Consider this comparison of natural fibers and synthetic fibers. Synthetic fibers create a myriad of disposal problems for communities worldwide. They release heavy metals and other additives into soil and groundwater when they are disposed of in landfills. Recycling can be expensive and time-consuming. Incineration produces dangerous pollutants and, in the case of high-density polyethylene, 3 tons of carbon dioxide emissions for every ton of material burnt. Substantial amounts of carbon dioxide are also released into the atmosphere during production of synthetic fibers.

In stark contrast, natural fibers are naturally and easily decomposed with the help of universal fungi and bacteria. Natural fibers can also be composted to improve soil structure or incinerated with no harmful emissions and release of no more carbon dioxide than the fibers absorbed during their lifetimes. Furthermore, one ton of jute fiber production absorbs as much as 2.4 tons of carbon dioxide1. Since carbon dioxide is the most destructive greenhouse gas on the planet and largely responsible for the growing hole in our ozone layer this bit of information illustrates but one significant reason to choose natural fibers.
