It gives back to the earth. The process of growing organic hemp fabric can actually replenish soil nutrients and improve soil health.
When hemp grows, it engages in a process called carbon sequestration. This means it draws in CO2 from the air and stores it in its fibres. For every ton of hemp produced, about 1.62 tons of CO2 are removed from the air.
Unlike some industries that generate tons of waste for every unit of production, hemp stands out by utilizing almost every part of the plant. This versatility and resource efficiency allows for over 25,000 industrial uses.
