Bioplastics can be made from a wide variety of plants. However, few of these plants grow as fast as Hemp. Hemp can reach a height of five feet in just a few weeks and has been known to reach 20 feet in months. This means that a large amount of product can be harvested relatively quickly. In comparison to one hectare of cotton, the same area of Hemp can produce two or three times more fibre, annually.

The Cannabis plant can also help to reduce pollution further. Not only does it not require pesticides or herbicides to grow, but it is also one of the most effective carbon dioxide stores on the planet. In fact, it is thought to absorb more CO2 per hectare than any other commercial crop or forestry.

Hemp also improves growing conditions for other crops. It can shade out weeds, and improve soil health by locking in nitrogen and even toxic metals. Hemp was even used to help clean up the nuclear spill at Chernobyl.

In comparison to corn – another effective product for plant bioplastics – Hemp reduces food waste. Corn is a valuable food source, so it would make little sense to harvest it for plastic production, rather than food. Hemp, however, does not have this problem.

Take a look at the benefits HEMPEARTH Plastic has over standard oil-based polymers.

  • Biodegradable

When made with biodegradable polymers, HEMPEARTH plastic is completely biodegradable, unlike regular plastics. 

Plastic pollution is growing at such an alarming rate because it just keeps piling up and up. In fact, most plastic items will take up to 1,000 years before they actually decompose. 

Hemp plastic, on the other hand, only takes about 3 to 6 months to fully decompose — and it can be recycled indefinitely. 

  • Non-toxic

Petroleum-based plastics contain harmful toxins like BPA, which have been linked to infertility, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and a whole slew of other negative health issues. 

HEMPEARTH Hemp plastic does not contain any of these dangerous toxins at all. This makes it a much safer product for both our health and the health of our environment.

  • Renewable resource

Hemp is a renewable resource that benefits the environment instead of degrading it. Hemp crops prevent soil erosion, reduce water pollution, absorb toxic metals, and can be cultivated over and over again. 

  • Stronger and lighter

Compared to petroleum-based plastics, HEMPEARTH plastic is 3.5 times stronger and 5 times stiffer. As a result, hemp plastics are more durable and have a lower chance of breaking, which also makes them safer. Hemp plastic is also much lighter than regular types of plastic. 

So why HEMPEARTH Plastic ?
