Could Industrial hemp plastic bring an end to the Age of Plastic?
Replacing plastic with hemp plastic is a very crucial move we need to make in the United States and it is time we make that change. If you do a little searching it won’t take long before you stumble upon some really amazing products made using hemp. Studies have been underway for years now and there are businesses all throughout the world already providing hemp made products. Hemp takes less time to grow, creates more oxygen, and has many uses from food to building materials.
One of our famous founding fathers, George Washington, famously grew hemp and Henry Ford was making car parts out of industrial hemp back in the 1940’s. There is even a rumor that Mr. Ford never intended for his vehicles to run on gasoline, rather a hemp based fuel.
The truth is, there is definitely potential for bio plastics and other hemp products to eventually hit the shelves throughout the US. It has been a very slow going process but as Bob Dylan said “The Times They Are a Changing”.
