The cheap plastic clothes are prepared in factories that have terrible working conditions. The work is mostly carried out by women who are underpaid and overworked. Also the workers working in these factories are always exposed to carcinogenic chemicals that are very harmful for humans. On the other hand, Hemp is grown in a much safer and cleaner environment and the safety conditions for workers are taken care of.
In today’s world, most of the diseases are caused by different types of bacterias and pathogens. It has been shown in studies that Hemp has many anti-bacterial properties and therefore it reduces the risk of diseases caused by bacteria and pathogens.
