  1. Kenaf – alternative to wood pulp

    Kenaf is still not a household name. Recycling is king but not kenaf, nor any of the other plant fiber alternatives to wood pulping for that matter.

There has been very little progress in telling the world about this crop and its myriad uses. And that is a real shame because the benefits derived from growing, distributing and making paper products out of kenaf are so obvious that even consumers who are not researchers or specialists cannot dispute them.

From the cutting of huge tracts of forests to the poisoning of the rivers and streams with chlorine and dioxin run-off from paper mills, making paper from wood just does not make a lot of sense, especially in this day and age.

The word needs to be spread. The idea has to take hold. People need to be educated first, and then encouraged to act on their knowledge and convictions.

  4. Crocheted Jute Coasters

    While coasters are mainly used during the hot summer months when our drinks sweat with condensation, jute made coasters are perfect for the spring weather. Making use of only a few materials, jute coasters are extremely simple to make for a crocheted.Crocheted-Jute-Coasters

    If you try to crochet jute too tightly, it will make it tough to insert the crochet hook. Make an effort to loosen the gauge. When weaving the tail at the end, weave it slowly and carefully. Weaving it through multiple stitches is very difficult and needle nosed pliers might be required. Crocheting with jute is not easy and it takes time to get used to it. Do not give up. Your last coaster will definitely look better than the first.
