Importance of Hemp
Hemp as a crop is beneficial for farmers and the environment in general. Thousands of products can be made from hemp that are eco-friendly, highly effective alternatives to the status quo version of the equivalent product.
You may have noticed that hemp products are now surging in the mainstream. The primary environmental benefits of hemp textiles include:
- Hemp’s natural pest-resistance allows it to be grown without the use of pesticides. Cotton is accountable for $2.6 Billion worth; over 10% of the world’s pesticide use and approximately 25% of the world’s insecticides.
- Hemp is a durable fiber meaning longer-lasting, higher quality clothing, slowing the fast fashion trend. The fashion industry is responsible for 10% of the world’s carbon emissions and pollutes the oceans with micro-plastics.
- Hemp uses about ¼ the amount of water that cotton requires to grow and produces a higher yield of fiber per acre which matters because the fashion industry is the planet’s second largest consumer of our water supply.
