Hemp Hemp Revolution
Save the planet for our children and our children’s children. How can one plant help to create so much change that it can insure a beautiful future for our great grand kids? Our ancestors had the idea right. Dating back as far as 8000 b.c. For one thing, hemp is as traditional a fabric as you can find and is the oldest cultivated fiber plant known.
The versatility of the hemp plant is unprecedented. It can be turned into more commercial product than any one plant known to man.

Save the Trees
We have an answer that will save forests, rejuvenate soil and help farmers in crop rotation. On an annual basis, 1 acre of hemp will produce as much paper as 2 to 4 acres of trees. From tissue paper to cardboard, all types of paper products can be produced from hemp. We already have massive deforestation, indigenous people and animals out of homes. We call this progress. Progress to me is, reforestation put back what we took and use a plant to put less of a footprint on our Earth Mother. We have access to the world’s most promising source of tree free paper with a higher quality, more durable, and easier to recycle and uses less toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process. When our choices are tress that takes years to grow and mature until they can be harvested for paper or a plant that takes roughly 4 months from seed to maturity. Hemp can grow on most land suitable for farming, but forests and tree farms require large areas of land available in few locations.
or its green alternative. I personally would rather live in a world full of trees and fields of green.
Hemp when processed into food has some of the most nutritional values known. It contains pure digestable proteins and all 8 essential amino acids. It is said that Hemp is the only plant that could fully support all nutritional needs to support our health. Hemp foods come in a variety of different products including milk, snack bars, waffles, organic shakes, cereal, pretzels and so much more. There has even been a noted decrease in cravings of junk foods when eating hemp products. Quite different from ingesting its THC laden cousin. Next time you spark up try having a hemp snack bar instead.
Hemp Body Care
I love the way way Hemp products put the moisture back in my skin. Hemp products actually feed the skin amino acids. In the plant world hemp is the only one to contain the highest amount of essential fatty acids that can be absorbed into the skin topically. You can find hemp body care items in lotion, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, lip balm, bath gel, soap and more.
Up until the the 1920's 80% of all clothes were made out of hemp. Now many designers are starting to utilize this textile again in their fashions including Calvin Klein and Armani to name a few. A trendy fashion forward store in Santa Barbara called Hempwise Boutique are catering to this new style. For its durability, longevity, lightweight and softness hemp clothes are finally being utilized by more than just hippies. With what some are calling a miracle fiber from Canvas bags to silken dresses hemp has it all. It even holds up against mildew and mold.
And of course if you are on the East coast, and want to check out some stylish hemp clothing, I would check out Druthers Emporium in Port Charlotte, Florida. From hemp linen button down shirts to sweatpants for the guys. For the girls dresses, purses, tops and pants. Druthers Emporium even has baby's first hemp onesie. Hemp clothing is definitely in.
The Hemp Home
This might be the first home in the US to build house of hemp but, Madame France Perrier builds about 300 homes per year in France by using a product called hemcrete, which is a mixture of industrial hemp, limestone and water.
