Organic hemp is a super plant of the future. It can improve the soil for the next cultivation. Hemp is a fast-growing plant, that grows well without much water. As it flourishes, hemp breathes in CO2, detoxifies the soil, and prevents soil erosion. The plant can be used for many different things. For example, its fibers and stalks are often used to make clothes, build houses, food, as well as supplements.
Tencel is a type of rayon from sustainably sourced wood. It's made by dissolving wood pulp and using a special drying process called spinning. Before drying, the wood chips are mixed with a solvent to produce a wet mixture. In production, Tencel requires less energy and water than conventional cotton. As a plant-derived fibre, it's also biodegradable and requires a lot less water than cotton.
Making this garment takes 47.08 liters of water, 5.44 kg CO2 eq, 6.57 g PO4 and results in 0.04 kg of waste.
