What is seagrass?

Seagrass is an actual grass that grows in the sea or salt water. In many places in Vietnam it grows inland in some marshy waterways. 

Seagrass production helps to support entire communities in North Vietnam.  A lot of weaving of seagrass products in Vietnam is done at home and by women. The weaving of the baskets allows these women to stay at home and look after their families and domestic duties while earning some much needed extra income.

Environmental Benefits:

  • seagrass and other natural fibres will degrade very quickly. 
  • Seagrass is a fast-growing plant, which means it's cultivation has little impact on the ecosystems it feeds.
  • it is an environmental friendly alternative to plastic.
