How is hemp more sustainable?
Our hemp is transitionally organic, regenerative, and resource efficient. Compared to cotton, hemp uses 5X less water, 3X less land, matures 2-3X faster, is naturally antimicrobial, and naturally biodegrades. Hemp also does not strip the soil but actually replenishes key nutrients. Hemp also sequesters 6.69 tons of CO2 per acre which is far superior to trees (2.6 tons per acre), making it carbon neutral if not negative.
