Unlike cotton, hemp’s vigorous growth characteristic makes it possible to harvest without the use of harmful pesticides, herbicides, or excessive water usage. Hemp also restores nutrients to the soil, which are available to the next crop planted in rotation.
Hemp has eight times the tensile strength and four times the durability of cotton. Diapers made from hemp fabrics will last longer and stand up to rougher use than cotton. Famous for its strength and durability, hemp has been tested to outlast cotton by a lifespan of 4 times.
