In a groundbreaking decision, Textile Today chooses to hand out gift kits to the Textile Talent Hunt (TTH) 7th season grand finale guests with the Jute-made disposable ‘Sonali Bag.’ The Sonali bag was invented by the Bangladeshi scientist Dr. Mubarak Ahmad Khan.
As the world is worried about ecological impact of polyethene – back in 2015 – as an ecofriendly alternative, Dr. Mubarak Ahmad Khan successfully developed a biodegradable and eco-friendly bag from jute cellulose film polymer – known as the ‘Sonali bag.’
Dr. Mubarak in a recent interview with Textile Today said, “If Bangladesh’s total jute production turns into Sonali bag, it can reduce the 1/3 of global polythene usage.”
Dr. Mubarak Ahmad Khan is currently serving as an Advisor of Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) and a former Chief Scientific Officer of the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission.
On 30 March, TTH 7th season grand finale – the top 5 Transformation Leaders will showcase their innovation outcomes set for the transformation of the textile and apparel industry.
