Sustainable components of hemp:
Resource-Sustainable: Serious savings on farm-land and water. 1/3 of land and about 1/20 of water needed for growing vs. cotton Normally, no irrigation needed at all. CO2-sustainable # 2 Hemp absorbs 22-44 tons CO2 per hectare/year (at 1 og 2 crops per season) Forests absorbs (only) 7-10 tons per hectare (also good for the CO2-balance). Cotton absorbs ca. 5 tonnes per hectare/year and demands CO2-generating irrigation etc.
Organic-Sustainable No need for or incentive to use pesticides or herbicides. Hemp naturally repels bugs and fungi in the field (and as a textile). Primarily due to CBD* and small amounts of THC* in the fabric. Energy-Sustainable #4 Saves washing water and energy. Due to Hemp´s antibacterial properties disinfection is rarely needed. Can be washed (less frequently) at 30 or 40℃, saving up to 50% energy.
CO2-sustainable: Hemp absorbs 22-44 tons CO2 per hectare/year (at 1 og 2 crops per season) Forests absorbs (only) 7-10 tons per hectare (also good for the CO2-balance). Cotton absorbs ca. 5 tonnes per hectare/year and demands CO2-generating irrigation etc.
Socially Sustainable: Fair working conditions and a fair wage is a human right. Our products are grown, treated and finished on a local farm in Colombia using local labour. Also, 10% of the profits go to building a local English school near the farm.
