PRODUCTS: Discover hempís 25,000 uses-from cardboard, construction products, cosmetics, fabrics, and foods to inks, paper, and plastics.
TEXTILES: The third-largest industry in the world is the manufacture of textiles. Hemp textiles offers a multiplicity of fabric uses, for bedspreads, blankets, backpacks, carpeting, clothing, draperies, furniture, hats, luggage, mattresses, sails, sheets, shoes, shirts, tents, and towels, to name only a few items.
Hemp textiles have a number of advantages over other fabrics. According to the Chinese Academy of Sciences, fabrics with at least a 50-percent hemp content block the sun's UV rays more effectively than do other fabrics. Compared to cotton fibers, hemp fibers are longer, stronger, more lustrous and absorbent, and more mildew-resistant. Hemp fabrics also keep the wearer cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than do cottons or synthetics.
ENVIRONMENT: Hemp grows without any pesticides or herbicides, and conserves oil, timber & water resources. Hemp paper can be recycled 15 times, wood pulp paper only 2. Industrial hemp does not require chlorine bleaching and is DIOXIN-FREE.
