A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Hailed as a ‘wonder crop’ due to its high yield, zero waste and resistance to disease, hemp is eco-friendly and highly sustainable.
Hemp can be grown indoors or outdoors, with production methods improving as a result of indoor cultivation over the last century.
Hemp has proven to offer superior alternatives to building materials, paper and textiles – and is a natural fit in the world of bioplastics.
INDUSTRIAL HEMP: A WIN-WIN FOR THE ECONOMY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Industrial hemp was once a dominant crop on the American landscape. This hardy and renewable resource (one of the earliest domesticated plants, dating back to the Neolothic Age in China) was refined for various industrial applications, including paper, textiles and cordage.
Today, hemp is a niche crop with an abundance of uses and applications. It can contribute to a sustainable future, benefiting the environment, the economy and our communities. Hemp is nature’s gift to humanity.
