      Why you should ditch fast fashion and switch to Hemp clothing

      The fashion industry is one of the leading polluters in the world and the largest contributor to the build-up of greenhouse gases! If you didn’t know this, it’s completely expected because they do a good job at hiding it from hitting the mainstream media. Hemp is known to be one of the most sustainable materials out there due to its soil replenishing properties, fast growth and overall usefulness. Other than the fact that hemp is highly sustainable, hemp fabric is also long-lasting, durable and feels extremely soft on the skin.

      Let’s start with the basics – what is hemp?

      Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant. It has a plethora of industrial benefits, it can be used not only in the making of textiles, but also oils, food, construction material, and much more. Hemp has negligible traces of THC and grows much faster than trees and other plants at a higher volume than most.

      So what are the benefits of Hemp fabric?

      Reduces Carbon emissions:

      As mentioned earlier, the fashion industry is one of the largest contributors to global warming and environmental issues. When Hemp is used as a material, it is eco-friendly an bio-degradable and as a crop, Hemp absorbs 4 times as much CO2 from the environment as trees. This means Hemp actively works on reducing the concentration of CO2 in the air.

      Needs comparatively lesser water to grow:

      Many crops used for fabric drink up a lot of water and require heavy irrigation. However, Hemp requires much less water as it does not require heavy irrigation to thrive. Another benefit is that it does not need a heavy use of insecticides and pesticides.

      Hemp enriches the soil:

      Hemp restores much of the vital nutrients that have been lost. Multiple cycles of hemp can be grown on the same land and it can also be used a part of crop rotation. As mentioned earlier, it doesn’t require pesticides and therefore doesn’t include the pollution of soil through pesticides.

      The fabric is comforting and cozy:

      Hemp is easy on the skin and super breathable. It doesn’t absorb sweat, is resistant to fading, doesn’t wear off easily and holds shape even after multiple washes. In fact many have said that it gets softer with time. If you have a bad odor, hemp clothing may help you due to its anti-microbial properties.

      Hemp may just be the future of clothing, as per the rate at which the fashion industry is hurting the environment we may not be left with any other choice but to switch to hemp. But why wait till it gets that bad? Switch to hemp clothing that’s fashionable, sustainable and feels so good! Shop various styles and patters at cbdstore.in today.
