Burlap Bags for Door Mats

A fellow coffee roaster, John, shared that he uses his excess coffee bags for outside door mats. He likes the fact that they do work great for catching the dirt and when it is grungy, he can just toss, compost, or burn.

Why doesn't he just wash them instead of burning them,composting them or throwing them away? I bet the schools that still have home ec. could use them for basic sewing. Or the local animal shelters could use them for bedding.

Burlap bags also make great garden containers; one friend uses them to grow potatoes!
