Henry Ford was one of the first using hemp plastics. He used those plastics for one of his famous cars, just like hemp diesel. This appeared to be very progressive. Nowadays, we still don’t use those products for our cars. A missed opportunity.
Why to use hemp plastics
Hemp plastics might be even stronger than steel. They are not based on petroleum, but on hemp, the marijuana-like plant of which you can’t get high. This makes hemp plastics, unlike the plastics we are familiar with, fully natural. Recently people made them fully biodegradable too.
Why we don’t use them
Due to the governments policy on hemp, mass production of hemp plastics isn’t possible yet. This is a pity, because hemp brings improvement in many ways. It might even be the solution for the greenhouse effect, because it is very environmentally friendly and can be produced almost everywhere.
