Anything made from plastic or fibre can be made from Hemp, It’s been estimated that Hemp has over 50,000 uses. Here’s just a few. Paper, textiles, all plastics, clothes, bags, rope, carpets, body care products, bricks, livestock feed, fuel, supplements, essential oils, medicines, food.
Just 1 acre of Hemp produces the same amount of Cellulose fibre used to make paper & fabrics as 4 acres of Trees, Hemp is ready to be used in just 60 days compared to 50-100 years for a tree.
Hemp plants are drought tolerant and needs 4x less water to thrive than cotton, in fact one single acre of Hemp will product as much fibre as 3 acres of cotton.
One acre of hemp produces more oxygen than 25 acres of forest.
Every hemp plant could save 12 trees.
Every ton of hemp eliminates 1.63 tons of carbon.
Hemp biodegrades in less than 6 months filling the soil with goodness & nutrients and yes that incudes Hemp plastic.
How awesome would that be for our planet? Not to mention the incredible impact it could make on reducing plastic in our ocean & landfill.
“Growing hemp as nature designed it is vital to our urgent need to reduce greenhouse gasses & ensure the survival of our plant” Jack Herer – American Hemp freedom activist.
