It does not shed micro-plastics into our water supply or oceans.
Hemp is a naturally grown fibre, that uses little to no insecticides and pesticides, compared to cotton which accounts for the use of nearly 25% of the worlds insecticides and pesticides.
Hemp requires less then 50% of the amount of water used to grow cotton.
nothing is wasted in the hemp production process: seeds are used to make oil and food supplements, while the stalks are used for fiber
Hemp also produces more fiber per acre than trees, and can be renewed two to three times per year. Not only that: industrial hemp plants absorb more carbon dioxide than trees.
it renews the soil with each growth cycle. Its long roots prevent erosion and help retain topsoil. Hemp also grows readily in most temperate regions.
Of course, nothing lasts forever. When hemp clothing is no longer wearable it can biodegrade completely, leading to a minimal ecological footprint over the whole life of each garment.
