Why is Hemp Fabric a Good Sustainable Option?
Hemp fabric is a great textile option because it is not only durable and strong, but also offers many environmental benefits when compared to cotton. Hemp plants actually sequester more carbon from the environment as they grow, meaning they’re a carbon negative crop!
