I read the local paper every morning. I was pleased to see an article in the “Life” section titled, Designers addicted to earth friendly hemp. The write-up is from the L.A. times.
The piece extols the green virtues of hemp as I have here. One aspect I hadn’t considered is the landfills. What would you rather have buried in the garbage dump; synthetics or plant material? Hemp has no impact whatsoever.
The author, Susan Carpenter, also mentions that most of the hemp used in the textiles comes from China. I sense a certain irony here. We are importing a product, that is illegal to grow in the U.S., from a country that routinely executes heroin traffickers.
That doesn’t make a lot of sense, does it?
