Hemp - ultimate renewable resource
Hemp, also known under its Latin name - Cannabis sativa - is the world's most versatile plant. It provides raw materials for vast production of life-essential goods: food, textiles, housing, bioenergy and much more. Hemp can be cultivated almost anywhere in Europe, grows without the application of any toxic chemicals, requires little or no irrigation, absorbs significant amouts of CO2 from the atmosphere while growing, revitalizes the soil and yields on average ten times more biomass than cotton. It is, in other words, the ultimate renewable resource!
Transition to hemp industry today, wake up in a prosperous and sustainable world tomorrow. Great changes begin with small actions.
