PONY needles in the climate neutral needle case
made from jute
Jute is the environmentally friendly natural fibre with a very silky and golden sheen giving it the name the golden fibre. The jute fibre is very strong and durable and is therefore ideally suited for the production of the new Pony needle cases.
Jute is the sustainable alternative to plastic. Plastic decomposes slowly over hundreds of years and the resulting microplastic often ends up in the sea which greatly endangers animals and nature. Jute, on the other hand, has been known for thousands of years for its ecologically valuable properties and, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, also contributes significantly to waste reduction.
- Jute is a high fiber, fast growing plant
- Jute is completely biodegradable and recycleable
- Jute is exceptionally strong
- Jute has low CO2 foot print
- Jute has low water foot print

Jute – the environment friendly natural fibre
The new PONY jute cases can lead to a sustainable and efficient fight against plastic consumption, with the added benefit of reducing carbon dioxide emissions, lowering our carbon footprint, and finding new and alternative resources to fight climate change.
The jute used grows in Bengal, India, on fertile alluvial soil without fertilisers and artificial irrigation. The Jute plant has an extremely low carbon footprint and is an amazing crop for the environment as the plants are rain fed and require no irrigation. Jute stores a high amount of carbon and releases large quantities of oxygen into the air, even more than some trees do!
Jute weaving originated in the ancient civilization of the Indus Valley and is mentioned in Sanskrit texts. As the method used for processing Jute has barely changed in a century, the PONY jute cases are made with no chemicals and are completely biodegradable.
