Hemp is a natural fiber and can be grown without pesticides or fertilizer. For each acre of hemp grown, 19,000 pounds of CO2 are removed from the atmosphere.
When hemp grows, it replenishes the soil with nutrients, which is why farmers sometimes grow it between crops. Hemp also requires only half of the water to produce twice the fiber when compared to cotton.
Amazingly, most of the CO2 emitted during the production of hemp textiles is offset by the carbon sequestered during cultivation! Also, our products do not contribute to dye pollution because we use natural dyes.
Hemp is 8x stronger than cotton and thus lasts much longer.
While hemp lasts much longer than cotton and other natural fabrics, it is completely compostable.
Today, over 50% of all clothing is made with synthetic fabrics. These materials, such as polyester and nylon, are created out of fossil fuels like oil.
The production of synthetic clothing requires significant energy. Even when synthetic textiles are sourced from recycled plastics, melting those plastics releases N20, which is 300x as harmful
Washing synthetic fabrics allows microfibers to drain into the ocean, damaging marine ecosystems.
Synthetic clothing takes hundreds of years to decompose.
