Why? Well, because it’s a super sustainable plant that breathes in CO2 (4x more than trees), enriches the soil for nutrients and doesn’t need much water to grow. The more people growing and using hemp, the better for the planet. Then there’s the fact that the entire plant can be put to good use – from the stalk and the seeds, to the flowers and the leaves – so there’s more than enough to go around (and no waste).
We first discovered hemp back in 1998 when we were growing the plant to use the stalks for sustainable car dashboards (for none other than BMW). One year later we found a few hemp plants missed from harvest that had flowered and produced seed. Once we discovered the nutritional value of the hemp seed , we started to make food and drink – from oils to milks and protein – and we haven’t looked back since. This June, we’ll be using even more of the hemp plant with the introduction of our CBD oil drops. Extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant, CBD is a chemical compound that scientists believe reacts with the endocannabinoid system to promote the body’s natural homeostasis (balance). As we said – a miracle plant.

We found these hemp swimsuits while browsing sustainable shopping site R ê ve en Vert. A lot of what’s on the market is made out of polyester – a non-biodegradable material which can irritate your skin. Anyone else outraged about that £1 bikini from Misguided, which claimed to be “empowering women” with a price that was totally unsustainable and disrespectful of women further down the production line? Well that was made from polyester. Okay rant over. Back to celebrating Natasha Tonic for using a natural hemp fibre which isUV resistant, made to last and a healthier choice for people’s skin.
This was big news in the hemp community. An all-American brand getting on board with hemp and shouting about its environmental impact could be monumental for everyone. Back in March, Levi’s debuted a collaboration that included a pair of jeans and jacket pade from a 69%-cotton and 31%- hemp blend that actually felt like pure cotton. Hemp uses significantly less water than cotton and doesn’t need any pesticides, herbicides or nasties to growd. Levi’s Head of Product Innovation Paul Dillinger hopes for a 100% cottonised-hemp garment that is all hemp but feels like cotton. “Our intention is to take this to the core of the line, to blend it into the line, to make this a part of the Levi’s portfolio.”
Yup, that’s right you can sleep on hemp too. Harrison Spinks is a mattress company with their own flax and hemp farm. They harvest and process all their hemp on site before taking it to Leeds to be used as part of their luxury mattress fillings. They say that hemp is ten times more absorbent than cotton and draws away moisture from the body during the night keeping you cool and fresh. Then there’s the fact that it’s a natural hypoallergenic and is resistant to mildew and bedbugs. Is there anything hemp can’t do?
