Why Our Product is Better
Our straw blankets are made from some of the most renewable resources on the planet. We have a secure source of straw supply. With complete control of the supply chain of straw we can ensure a sustainable supply of high quality product, because we won’t have a shortage of raw materials. Straw is a very renewable resource, and is high in nitrogen (unlike other blankets), which requires no additional nitrogen form the soil to begin to biodegrade.
