Green your space with Hemp
Hemp Sisters is a good source for hemp handbags, hats, and hammocks. They also carry hemp clothing, hemp and cotton twine, and other green products. Rawganique.com is a wonderful source for hemp home decor and much, much more. Rawganique is a family run business located on Denman Island. It was born of a family's effort to slow down, nurture the earth, and begin to tread more lightly on the environment. It offers bed, bath, kitchen and home products, as well as twine, rope, and clothing. In addition, it offers many eco books, organic cotton products, and raw foods.
Hemp Guide.com goes so far as to say that many "believe that the plant has the capacity to reverst the Greenhouse Effect; as well as aid in purifying the air, water, and soil." That is quite a ringing endorsement for its use! Even if it goes only part of the way to fulfilling that projection, it is certainly a beneficial plant. Hemp is a much more cost effective source for papermaking, yields four times more fiber than a pine tree, and requires no pesticides in growing and cultivation. In addition, it can be used to make plastic without petro chemicals.The above hand-woven rug is crafted from 100% hemp fibers, and is available at VivaTerra.com. Chic, stylish, economical, and eco friendly hemp can help you geen every space in your home.
