Title: Pollution reduction in weaving mill through new fibers
To avoid pollution and longevous wastes, synthetics in the production of baskets and sacks are to be replaced by natural fibers from the sisal-agave or similar materials. These useful plants are scarcely used, yet they grow plentifully in warm areas and on eroded land. This also represents a source of income for the population.
