    A lot of products these days are claiming to be recyclable, biodegradable, made from recycled materials, etc. An item that is biodegradable is a product or material made from an eco-friendly material that decomposes in landfills or other environments such as people litter or roadsides.

  8. 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. We recycle, but we pay very little attention to finding the ultimate alternative to using trees for making paper products. 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. Nowadays, there is an even greater urgency to find the best possible solutions to our ever-worsening environmental situation. Just as alternatives to fossil fuels are being aggressively researched, alternatives to wood pulping for paper products must also be pursued with equal commitment. Raising awareness, governmental support, and funding that

If people were aware that they could have a high quality paper product that would not become brittle or yellow with age, that could be made cheaply and would do less harm to the environment, real changes might begin to rumble through the papermaking industry. 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.

Kenaf was long used for pulp production in Bengal and came to the attention of the West probably in the late nineteenth century when it was noted as a strong fiber, that was superior in strength to even the paper from which the Bank of England notes were made. The kenaf plant has been selected from 500 other plants as the most promising non-wood fiber alternative for the manufacture
