Hemp Paper -
An Alternative To Deforestation
Precious Ecosystems are the backbone of
our planet, whether we like to admit it or not. We need each
other to survive and to keep the cycle of life going.
Unfortunately, these ecosystems don't stand much
of a chance
when they are faced with a dozen bulldozers and multi billion dollar
companies. Every year , millions of forest acreage are destroyed along
with any wildlife contained within it for paper.
This practice is not sustainable to say the least.
to the human race. What would happen if the human population died
faster than it could reproduce? Yep, we would become extinct. It might
take a while, but it would be inevitable.
The same applies to trees. If we destroy more than
reproduced, the consequences to us could be deadly. Forests absorb
carbon dioxide and we already know that there's just too much of that
already in the atmosphere. They are also home to a number of species
that are a part of the food chain, and that chain includes us.
There are, however, alternatives to
free paper made from hemp and post-consumer recycled paper. Hemp is
sustainable, renewable and can be used in an array of products
including paper and enveloppes.
