BIODEGRADABLE REPLACEMENTS FOR PLASTIC

    Cellulose is a biodegradable organic polymer. Coal tar, the primary resource for synthetic polymers like nylon is a non-biodegradable fossil resource. It is not part of the living ecology of Earth. It smothers life wherever it is dumped or spilled.

    From hemp, a source if high grade cellulose, comes a paper that is stronger and has better folding endurance than wood pulp paper.* Hemp cardboard and paper bags will last longer with more useful secondary life than similar products made from wood pulp or plastic.
