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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 163 Answers 0 Best Answers 342 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-06-12T12:13:05-04:00Added an answer on June 12, 2020 at 12:13 pm As hempmaster stated, 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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 101 Answers 0 Best Answers 215 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 really a cost thing. Hemp plastic is about double in cost then 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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
