Water Savings

Oxygen Production

CO2 Absorption

To produce 1 Kg of dry Hemp fiber requires approximately 

100 Gallons of water,

VS the 2,500 Gallons required 

to produce 1 Kg of cotton.

Hemp is the fastest 

Carbon sink on the planet,

absorbing over 8 tonnes per acre 

VS 2.5 tonnes per acre 

of mature forest.

Hemp naturally repels many insects, 

so requires little to no pesticides to grow, making it safe for pollinators.

Cotton uses 16% of the World's pesticides, killing bees as it grows.

The root system of the Hemp plant is unaffected by heavy metals and toxins in the soil.  Once absorbed, these toxins remain sequestered in the plant, cleaning the soil for future use.

Biodegradeable Hemp based products

will decompose much faster than the several hundred years needed for their petroleum plastic counterparts.

Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable materials on Earth.  Hemp also resists mold and damage from UV light, making it less likely to degrade than other natural fibers.

The Hemp plant is naturally 

resistant to bacterial growth. 

Products made from Hemp have even been known to kill some bacterial infections on contact.

Fast Growing

Industrial Hemp can be harvested in as little as 100 days, and since it grows in many weather conditions, can be replanted again, and again

and again.
