Hemp the Renewable Resource
Hemp is one of the most environmentally friendly and sustainable plant resources. Just one hemp plant produces three times as much usable fiber per acre as cotton, and a full crop can be grown to maturity in just 100 days. Hemp has no known insect predators therefore is grown organically without herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides. It’s deep root system helps to prevent soil erosion, removes toxins, provides a disease break, and aerates the soil to the benefit of future crops. Hemp bast fibers are one of the longest natural soft fibers. They are longer, stronger, more absorbent, more mildew-resistant, and more insulative than cotton. Just like wool, hemp will keep you warmer in winter and cooler in summer. When blended with materials such as cotton, hemp provides a sturdier, longer lasting product, while maintaining quality and softness. Hemp blended with other fibers easily incorporate the desirable qualities of both textiles.
That is why here at BabeeGreens we provide a 55% Hemp/45% Organic Cotton Blend option on many of our products.
