And it looks like an affordable, realistic solution for the single-use plastics. Cups made from hemp are good to use instead of other disposable cups, but they don’t work well for things that need a longer shelf life. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Cleverclogs 0 Questions 204 Answers 0 Best Answers 414 Points View Profile Cleverclogs 2020-07-11T12:58:30-04:00Replied to answer on July 11, 2020 at 12:58 pm This is so very true!

Hemp is around 70% cellulose and is a naturally sustainable material. Therefore, it’s commonly used now as a bioplastic source to make cups and other plastic items. It’s also biodegradable and is an excellent choice to replace the environmentally hazardous plastic products that are often made from fossil fuel-based material. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp acevedobenitez 0 Questions 182 Answers 0 Best Answers 366 Points View Profile acevedobenitez 2020-07-26T12:53:55-04:00Added an answer on July 26, 2020 at 12:53 pm Hemp is the new up in comer when it comes to replacing plastics.

You don’t have to worry about putting a boiling hot drink in the hemp cup because they have eight times the cotton’s strength. It also has water-absorbent properties, even without a plastic liner. Additionally, hemp cups’ material is definitely renewable since hemp only requires growing in a short period. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 246 Answers 0 Best Answers 521 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-07-10T12:56:03-04:00Added an answer on July 10, 2020 at 12:56 pm Plastic can last for 100’s of years without degrading.

Hemp is very known for its ability to wick away moisture, especially when compared to cotton or other industrial fibers. It may not be as durable as plastic when submerged, it is cheaper, due to falling hemp prices in the past few years. The popularity of hemp prices are increasing due to this fact and also that is much more biodegradable, degrading much quicker than any other comparable product. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Cleverclogs 0 Questions 204 Answers 0 Best Answers 414 Points View Profile Cleverclogs 2020-07-09T09:37:06-04:00Added an answer on July 9, 2020 at 9:37 am Hemp is an amazing raw material, hemp plastic is incredibly durable, and it’s also sustainable too.

Both would be durable, with the plastic having a longer life. Hemp plastics, on average, biodegrade within six months, but they are lighter and have nearly four times the tensile strength of polypropylene. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-07T16:23:33-04:00Added an answer on July 7, 2020 at 4:23 pm Hemp is an extremely durable material, so anything made well from hemp is also going to be durable.
