Studies show that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than marine life ITSELF... I want to change that. As you probably already know, plastic can take decades, even CENTURIES, to decompose in the ocean, which is dangerous for sea life who can easily mistake it for food. Just one little change in the material could improve and even save our ocean from completely dying. And it's not just the ocean that is being affected... Life on land is just as bad. Most plastics end up in landfills, sewers, and on the street, which can lead to our poor birds and other wild creatures to thinking they found a snack when its really an attack. "It's just one plastic straw... It's just a few plastic bags... its just one bottle cap" said almost 8 million people. Think about it. You're not the only one taking our environment for granted. Plastic sticks around for a long long time... longer than any of us (usually)!! But we can fix it!! Instead of using that terrible material we rely on, let's try a different route... HEMP PLASTIC! This material only takes about an average of 83 days to biodegrade completely. It doesn't require any greenhouse gasses in the factory, and it's not much trouble to switch from plastic to hemp. The actual product looks just like plastic!! This doesn't mean you can keep littering, though. Even though this will make the environment way healthier, it's not an excuse to keep throwing your trash into our marine life. The ocean is just like the land. Animals are just like humans. It's another natural habitat, not your personal landfill. But, if you ever do forget to pick up that sandwich wrapper, you don't have to feel as guilty for killing an animal.

 

Hemp paper. One log of a hemp weed is equivalent to four logs of regular trees., which means we are wasting all this beautiful plant life for nothing. Trees are used as homes (animal), oxygen sources, scenery, etc. Somehow, We decided it would be a good idea to take it for granted and use this precious plant for our own good. Using hemp log and hemp paper is so much better for the environment.  A house built out of hemp is more likely to stand a tornado or a hurricane than a regular wood or brick house. It also keeps you termite free! Hemp paper is also tougher, so it doesn't just randomly rip if you pull your notebook out of your bag the wrong way. It's amazing what we could do with this if we just switched.

 

So now you understand why hemp can help us and our planet. Don't let the 2050 estimate be true. Don't make it so it becomes a regular thing to find a dead seagull on the side of the road with plastic in its mouth. Don't be the one who doesn't have insurance and can't have your house rebuilt after hurricane Katrina. Don't be the one who rips your homework on accident because the sheet is so thin. Be the one who makes a change. Be the one who impacts this world.

It starts with America.

And ends with everyone.

Use hemp
