About Us

Our Story

Located in Tauranga in the lovely Bay of Plenty, Simply Jute are a small team of passionate people, providing a range of sustainable alternatives to plastic bags. Friends and colleagues, Melanie and Sandra started Simply Jute in 2010 to encourage supermarkets to offer an everyday affordable alternative to plastic bags and are happy to have played a part in the current move towards a total ban. With a growing range of stocked products and the ability to help with custom bags, we have a strong focus on sustainable materials and are looking forward to our growth in the coming years, especially in the business branding market.
