Most of our clothes are made from the cotton field. To maintain a cotton yield one uses pesticides and insecticides. This protects their crop but reduces the fertility of their land. Hemp, on the other hand, is an organic crop that is naturally resistant to pests and requires no added chemicals. Cotton fields use 24% of the world’s pesticides and 11% of the world’s insecticides. Hence using Hemp based clothes is not only good for the environment but also for our lands.

Hemp plastic can be used for making anything that is made from plastic.

Today the world faces a global epidemic in terms of natural resource consumption. The human race has multiplied so much that every day there are hundreds of people that lack the basic necessities or the capacity to live. There are starvation deaths every day. In such a scenario the marijuana plant has a lot to offer to reduce their pain.
If the educated class of the world shifts to more renewable and eco-friendly resources this epidemic might end. Years of uncontrolled abuse of our natural resources has made global warming reality. The hole in our ozone layer is because of the constant burning fuel we will never get back. The infertile land is because of the non-eco friendly pesticides we use on our lands. The rise in diseases and the fall of the human immune system is because of the harmful gases we breathe, the pharmaceuticals we consume.
