Cost versus profit continues to hinder steps towards renewable resources, but here’s hoping other countries lead the charge and set a new standard in the coming decade! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-06-12T12:13:05-04:00Added an answer on June 12, 2020 at 12:13 pm As hempmaster stated, the cost is a big concern. In recent years, the cost has gone done a lot, so maybe more manufacturers are making more hemp plastic. Another reason being, it is not as breathable and comfortable as cotton or other clothing material currently used. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 461 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-05-08T10:34:41-04:00Added an answer on May 8, 2020 at 10:34 am Right now, it’s a cost thing. Hemp plastic is about double in cost than plastic or other off plastic alternative products. If it were the same or even slightly more, it would be in mass markets by now!! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
