We’ve made a mess of the world.
No matter how advanced the human race has become, there’s no denying the fact that we’ve polluted the earth almost to the point of no return. Global warming is already a clear and present threat, the waters of the world are getting more polluted by the day, and above all, one problem reigns supreme.
The ever rising amount of plastics in the environment.
Already, it’s estimated that there are over 6.3 billion metric tons of plastic waste in the world, and this number is only increasing. Even more alarming, of this, only a measly nine percent has been recycled.
This is resulting in irrevocable damage to the entire world. And at Hempearth, we are all about using innovation to save the planet. That’s why, with this end in mind, we’ve created our very own line of fully bio based compo-stable hemp plastic!
Yes, you read that right. We’ve used hemp, that innocuous yet seemingly notorious plant to create a sustainable alternative for regular plastic. And today, we’re going to tell you all about it.
Why Use Hemp For Plastic?
First, let’s try to answer a very basic question: of all the materials available under the sun, why use hemp for making plastic?
The answer, as usual, lies within.
The major reason why hemp is so very suitable for producing plastics boils down to one simple ingredient: cellulose. It’s cellulose that gives all forms of plastics their uniquely flexible, durable, moldable characteristics.
Till recently, hydrocarbon fuels such as petroleum have been the go-to source for deriving cellulose. However, as we already know, plastics made from hydrocarbon sources are highly toxic, non-biodegradable, persist in the environment for a long time. That’s why plastic manufacturers have been searching for an environmentally-viable source of cellulose for manufacturing plastics. And since the hemp plant is almost eighty-percent cellulose, non-toxic and organic, it makes for a suitable reference from which plastics can be derived.
What Is Hemp Plastic?
The hemp plant has proven to be unparalleled in its versatility. At Hempearth, we’ve already used this raw material to develop everything from hemp phones to hemp planes. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the hemp plant is also a suitable source for making plastic.
Put simply; hemp plastic is plastic that’s made from hemp fibers. This plastic is fully biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and a clean alternative for regular plastic.
Using hemp plastic, we can replace the use of polluting plastic agents in the environment. Plus, hemp plastic is highly resilient and can be used across a range of industries such as construction, fashion, and sports. Hempearth bioplastics not only offer significant advantages for the environment, but they also provide a suitable alternative for hydrocarbon-based plastics.
But that’s not where the advantages of hemp plastics end. In the following section, we’re going to take a closer look at the many advantages hemp plastics have to offer.
Advantages Of Hemp Plastic
Now that we know a bit about hemp plastic, it’s time to take a look at the many advantages of the material.
One of the significant reasons why plastics are so harmful to the environment lies in the fact that they aren’t biobased. Plastics persist in the environment for thousands of years, and can’t be broken down by natural processes. This makes their increasing accumulation a serious problem.
Hemp plastics made from biobased polymers, on the other hand, are entirely compostable. What’s more, it takes a relatively short time to fully decompose and is infinitely recyclable.
Plastics made from hydrocarbon-based sources such as petroleum contain harmful substances such as BPA, which have been linked to a slew of diseases such as heart disease, infertility, and even cancer.
Hempearth plastic, thankfully, doesn’t contain any of these toxins and has no detrimental effect on human health. Plus, it’s also absolutely safe for the environment as well.
A Renewable Resource
Regular plastic is made from petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource. This not only makes it costly but also less viable for continued use.
Compared to this, hemp plastics are completely renewable, since they are sourced from hemp, a plant which has a very short maturity cycle. This makes it cost-effective and affordable, not to mention, actually good for the environment, which is where the next point comes in.
Beneficial For The Environment
Hempearth plastic production involves the cultivation of the hemp plant. This can actually have several beneficial effects on the environment, such as the prevention of soil erosion and the absorption of toxic materials.
Better Quality Plastics
Finally, we must mention hempearth-based plastics, are of better quality than hydrocarbon-based plastics ever will be. Hempearth plastic is lighter, stronger, and more durable than regular plastic. This makes it perfect for use in industrial environments.
What Sets Hempearth Plastics Apart
Hempearth Plastics sold by Hempearth are completely bio-based and compostable. What’s more, the material contains a high load of 30% of hemp. That’s a significant improvement over other hemp plastics, which can have a maximum hemp content of 25%.
What’s more, Hempearth Plastics are available in any color you desire, and ship in the form of convenient pellets. We also supply Hempearth resin that can be used to form hemp plastic bags. All materials are fully available with samples ready for shipping.
Let’s Build A Better World Together
At Hempearth, we consider it to be all our responsibility to work towards the betterment of mankind. By replacing regular plastics with Hempearth plastic, we can all contribute towards the creation of a plastic-free world.
We invite all interested stakeholders to be a part of this revolutionary movement. Hempearth is dedicated to its mission of creating a better world, and we want you by our side in this journey. By becoming a part of the Hempearth family, you can ensure that you, too have a part in making the world a better place.
