GoJute has expanded its team to cope with increased demand.
The St Austell-based business has reported a “dramatic” increase in demand for its sustainable bags for life since the introduction of the 5p carrier bag tax last year.
And to help cope with this upturn, GoJute has appointed Angie Cruse as sales manager and John Sleeman as head designer.
General manager, Richard Hibbs, said: “Most businesses will now have a need for an innovative and sustainable advertising platform, and we saw most recently that since the bag tax was introduced, business owners are benefiting from printing their logo on a product such as jute.
“The growth in interest for jute and other products within Devon and Cornwall is in many ways a positive indicator of economic health but also an increased awareness in sustainability.”
