So how does hemp benefit the environment?
Hemp is one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable materials available that has been used over the centuries to produce all kinds of products. Today, as consumers become more environmentally conscious, hemp is gaining in popularity, here’s why.
The hemp plant is 100% eco-friendly and resilient
This dense, fast-growing, high yielding plant, requires very little water, naturally repels pests so no toxic chemicals such as fertilisers or pesticides are used. It purifies and prevents soil erosion returning 60-70% of its nutrients into the ground.
Hemp can be used as a biodegradable plastic
Petrochemical plastics have become the biggest polluter of our environment around the world. With the latest advances in technology, hemp can now be used as an alternative bioplastic that is renewable, sustainable and fully biodegradable.
Hemp is completely recyclable
Not only do we use the whole plant, its seeds, leaves, stalks and fibres, but we can recycle everything made from hemp as well. Hemp is used as a recyclable resource to produce rope, textiles, paper, fuel, bioplastics, insulation material, hempcrete, and even animal bedding.
A tremendous food source
Hemp is full of nutrients that we can benefit from by adding it into our daily diet. It’s a fantastic source of protein that contains all the essential amino acids, and its seeds can be added to granola, yoghurts, soups, salads, and much more. See our healthy recipe guide.
