When it comes to sustainability and the fashion industry the two are discussed by individuals who seek change and protection of the environment. The fashion industry is a billion-trillion dollar market globally and unfortunately it is also responsible for more annual carbon emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. Another impact it has is on our water pollution and supply.
Fashion and environmental safety can come together for a better and brighter future for generations to come and these hemp brands are doing their part to make sure that happens. Back in 1938 Popular Mechanics magazine proclaimed hemp to be, “The new billion dollar crop,” stating that it could, “Be used to produce more than 25,000 products.” That long list included textiles for clothing. A remarkable find at the time, but unfortunately due to hemps relation to cannabis the two were categorized unfairly and prohibited for some while.
Now, with the benefits of hemp and cannabis being more widely recognized, we are able to reexamine what saving the planet might actually look like.
No matter your personal style, or the climate that you live in, you will be sure to find one of these brands to fit your wardrobe needs.
JUNGMAVEN grew from roots of simplicity and sustainability. In the early ’90’s JUNGMAVEN founder, Robert Jungmann, became passionate about putting a stop to clear-cutting practices that devastate the planet– and knew growing hemp offered a solution to this, as well as to many other environmental issues. At that time, hemp was not considered fashion, and Rob’s concept to design a high-quality hemp tee was born from a determination to get the industry and the public to recognize both hemp’s massive potential to heal the planet and to become a fashion-forward textile.
