As I harvested the cilantro this afternoon, I began to wonder how others recycle or reuse these burlap sacks.
So, what did I do, I googled "burlap coffee sacks".
While few in number, I did find some instances of burlap sacks being used in the construction of a building.
One architectural reference I found was the Mathewson Studio or "Sack House" located in Berkeley, California designed in 1924 by Bernard R. Maybeck. In search of a cheap fireproof surfacing material, Maybeck tried coating burlap sacks with a foamy concrete mixture called "Bubble Stone". The cottage is still in use today.
High end stores are in on the recycled burlap sack rage...
