For this reason, woven polypropylene and Hessian sacks are the popular choice for numerous uses since they last longer and are re-usable, and in some cases biodegradable. Both of these benefits keep them out of landfills unlike the paper and thin plastic bags. To know which choice is right for you, though, you must understand the differences between Hessian and woven polypropylene sacks.
