Eco friendly felt basket can be used for a nearly unlimited number of applications. In addition to their affordable price, you can use the bags all around your home. You can use them for carrying logs and setting them by the fireplace, keeping your clothes fresh, storing important items on shelves and, if necessary, for moving items from one place to another with ease.
IN GARDEN USE
Home Bags can be used as growbags. Because the material is plastic, the soil can be added directly in to the bag and it lasts years before it biodegrades or breaks. Felt has numerous advantages in garden use.
- According to studies at the University of Colorado in the US, the material stops the roots circulating like in any other pots. The material helps the plant to generate a viable root net, resulting into a stronger plant.
- The felt material does not break in winter temperatures and it keeps it’s colour well in sun as rPET felt has a very good UV-resistance.
- Excess water runs though the felt and keeps the roots breath. The bags are ideal in larger scale as part of a plant watering system for instance in green houses. Tomatoes and cucumbers are good examples of use.
- The bags are easy to move, empty, store and reuse in garden use. The handles are durable and make the plants easy to remove. The package contains a warning not to use on surfaces that might suffer from the excess water running through the bag.
BENEFITS OF THE MATERIAL
Home Bags are made from recycled materials and can be disposed with other household plastic. PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) refers to certain type of plastic which has very good thermal properties. It can be moulded into new products over and over again. It has very good resistance for moisture absorption and therefore it does not get mold. The best property is its resistance for UV radiation eg. sunlight. This means that it holds it´s durable structure and colours well even in direct sunlight.
The felt material is mechanically 100% recycled PET-plastic bottles e.g. the felt product is a second generation rPET fiber product. In the manufacturing process the used bottles and packages go through a mill and the grains are melted and purified. The mass is made in to felt with a needle punching machinery. The rPET-felt material is very durable and it can be washed and irons easily. Plastic is always plastic but by reusing PET-plastic we keep the plastic out of our seas and landfills. The energy efficiency of the reproduction is relatively good compared to in creating virgin polyester products and many other fibres like cotton.
