Hemp plastics showing up more and more in consumer products:

In 1998, I was asked if I would like to “make a hemp plastic”. I jumped at the opportunity. According the dictionary, the “plastic” is “anything mouldable, pliant, supple” . This doesn’t entailed using petro-chemicals.

Plastics and petro-chemical based materials are used in almost everything around us, from countertops to pens, toothbrushes, computers, light fittings.., the list goes on. Why? Petro-chemicals are cheap, can be made into any shape and have a long-shelf life.
