While hemp is certainly a cash crop on the rise due to CBD and other health related products, another market for hemp is opening up in the bioplastic industry. Single use plastic products such as take out containers, straws, water bottles, etc., can be made from the cellulose in hemp plants.

A huge benefit of this process is these hemp plastic products are biodegradable. A plastic bag may take hundreds of years to degrade. While hemp plastic can degrade in just three to six months.
