Hemp is a vegetable fibre. It is biodegradable and highly renewable. No pesticides, herbicides or fungicides are necessary to grow hemp. Per acre of land, hemp can produce 250% more yield than cotton and 600% more yield than flax, which is what is used to make linen. Hemp plants grow in 12-14 weeks and can grow in a vast range of climates. Hemp also breathes in four times as much CO2 as trees. Hemp can also control the erosion of topsoil and replenish those soils with nitrogen and nutrients. When used to create a fabric, such as in the case of our backpacks and caps, it consumes much less energy and eater than cotton. The fabric made of hemp is very durable, breathable and naturally resistant to mould, bacteria and ultraviolet light. Hemp looks after you as you wear it, so wear it well.
Bamboo is a crucial element in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Bamboo groves let out 35% more oxygen than an equivalent strand of trees. Bamboo has a short growth cycle and bamboo groves send out new shoots every year. Bamboo plants also provide erosion control when other plants wash away. Our bamboo sunglasses are the next step in reducing your carbon footprint and will help you fight global warming.
