From the destruction of ecosystems through cotton pesticides to the abuse of children in foreign sweatshops, what we buy, sell, design, or manufacture has a massive ripple effect on society and nature.
For thousands of years hemp was used to make dozens of commercial products like paper, rope, canvas, and textiles. Modern day hemp use includes (but is not limited to) clothing, shoes, diapers, rope, canvas, cellophane, paints, fuels, chain lubricants, biodegradable plastics, paper, fibreboard, cement blocks, food, cosmetics, soap, tampons, houses, and even cars.
Three times stronger and twenty-five times more durable than cotton, hemp saves you money by lasting longer. The fibres are hypo-allergenic, draw moisture away from the body and are less resistant to odour due to its antibacterial properties.
Hemp is grown chemical free, enriches its soil, saves water and produces two-four times more fibre per area than any other source.
