Anything made with oil and petroleum-based plastic can be made from cannabis, or hemp, which is many times better for the environment and naturally biodegrades many years sooner (6 months for hemp rather than 450 years for oil-based plastic). 

The way to get away from plastic pollution is to legalize hemp federally and transition our infrastructure which is using oil-based plastic to hemp-based plastic. 

We request that President Biden and Congress pass federal cannabis legalization and put a plan into place to replace oil and petroleum-based infrastructure and industry.

"Cost And The War On Drugs Are Biggest Barrier To Hemp Plastic

While fossil fuel costs are kept low with subsidies, hemp products for the most part remain costly luxury items. The U.S. legalized hemp in 2018, after a few years of research into hemp growing. However, decades of drug prohibition mean we’re still lacking much of the infrastructure needed to grow and process hemp into plastic."
