Hemp is good for the environment as it reduces the need for pesticides, herbicides, fertiliser, water, energy and land when compared with other fibres.
As a fibre it is hollow, strong and durable. It also has anti-bacterial properties and is breathable.
Even though we currently have to import hemp fabric, it is still better than using conventional cotton or synthetic fabrics as the fuel used to transport it has less impact than all the
agro-chemicals that were saved would have had on the planet. Even if these savings are made in China for now, on a global level this benefits all of us.
In addition to this it stimulates eco-businesses, creates awareness, and helps to build the demand for local hemp production which is the ultimate goal.
