ATH Shop are very pleased to report that Lego Ltd, a major player in the Plastic industry, recently declared that they are joining the Hemp revolution and, in turn, helping to safeguard the future of our planet and wildlife, by making the switch to Hemp Plastic for all their Lego toys!
So why is this so important? Well, Hemp is one of humanities oldest cultivated crops, dating back over 10,000 years to Ancient China and Mesopotamia. Its medicinal use can be traced back to 2700 BC and even throughout Roman times. Industrial Hemp was also used to make rope, fabrics, paper and more in the past.
However, new laws imposed early in the 20th century put a stop to this growth, with the Government agenda being to monopolise the CBD market and make money from big pharmaceutical contracts.
Today, in addition to medical CBD, there are over 50,000 known uses for Industrial Hemp including:
- Cosmetics and paints
- Toys and musical instruments
- Clothing fabrics
- Healthy Foodstuffs
- Building materials and Cement
- And even fossil fuel!
Hemp is only one of six genus of plants known to enrich the soil it grows in. It is biodegradable, fully recyclable and Carbon-neutral, making it both ecologically friendly and sustainable, as well as ethical.
Hemp can grow organically almost anywhere on the planet and is so much kinder to Mother Nature than traditional crops grown to make these materials, such as trees for paper and cotton for fabrics.
So this is why it’s so important for the big companies to get behind the Hemp revolution and here at ATH Shop, we hope that Lego have started a new eco-friendly trend and other major market players will follow ... watch this space and check out our website for our great range of CBD, Hemp and Eco products!
