Sandbags from Burlap Sacks

Burlap sacks make perfect sandbags!

These lightweight, durable burlap sacks and bags come from the coffee industry where they were once used to hold the coffee beans. Each sack has a rip along the top where the previous owners removed the beans, but it can now be used as an opening to fill the sacks with other items. The eco-friendly material is made from woven, coarse threads and can hold a good amount of weight. Due to its breathable nature, the burlap is also able to resist condensation.

Common Size: 30″ x 40″

Possible “Repurposes”:

Onion Sacks – Potato Sacks – Tree Bulb Covers – Covers on Setting Concrete – Sandbags

NOTE: While we call this repurposed burlap sacks, others may call it reclaimed burlap sacks. Funny, we’ve also heard it being called recycled burlap sacks. Then there are those who refer to it as scrap burlap sacks, seconded burlap sacks, junk burlap sacks…or maybe even salvaged burlap sacks! Remember, whatever “green” or sustainable phrase you want to use regarding burlap sacks, we’ve got it.
