The world is going green. Each sector is contributing to this âGo Greenâ revolution. However, it all started with fashion industry. They were the first to introduce recyclable items as well as using biodegrading textiles. Biodegradable items are degraded by the action of biodegrading microorganisms with time. People have the wrong notion that it happens quickly. However, it is not the case. These items need proper decomposing environment to fully degrade and assimilate back to earth. Therefore, these substances have efficient use and high longevity. Here is a list of five such biodegradable fashions that you can wear for a cause â the cause of protection of environment against pollution:

The jute has an ancient history. They are one of the strongest and cheapest naturally occurring fibers. It was a common use for centuries before it was taken over by polymer industry but now Jute is back in fashion. These jutes bags are strong, light and completely biodegradable. They can be woven to have any shape. Therefore, a large number of bag designs are available in the market. These bags are trendy and help in minimizing the polymer use. If these bags come into fashion, India will definitely find some progress in the Jute agriculture, which has suffered major setbacks due to the onset of polymer bags. In several countries, the polymer bags have been banned and paper bags have been adopted. The jute bags will definitely find a place in those countries if properly introduced.
