Hemp or Wood for Paper?

Deforestation is not the answer to supplying the world with paper products. Humans, the planet, and the equilibrium of our environment would be compromised if too many trees were cut down.

Hemp is a rapid renewable resource, allowing annual harvests to provide fiber for paper in a more economically and environmentally friendly way than wood. Trees provide the soil with nutrients, the air with oxygen, and organisms with food and shelter.

Hemp fiber from the stalk is what is used in the paper making process, leaving seed and leaf material revenue streams open. Hemp is more renewable, more economically feasible, and more environmentally friendly. That is why hemp is a smarter choice for paper!

Wood County residents can join us this weekend to volunteer with us to process some hemp fiber. Check out our FaceBook Event for more details!
