* Until 1883, more than three quarters of the world's paper was made from Hemp fibre * 80% of English wood pulp is imported, destroying the forests and their delicate eco-systems in Canada and Scandinavia * Trees take approximately 20 years to mature. Hemp takes 4 months * Environmentally-sound Hemp paper is stronger, finer and longer-lasting than wood-based papers * Hemp paper is used for bank notes and archives * Hemp paper does not need chlorine bleach, which heavily pollutes rivers near wood-pulp paper mills * Much of the world's paper was made from Hemp until about 1850. Since the 1900s, all newspapers and most books and magazines were printed on wood-pulp paper * Our forests, what is left of them, are being cut down 3 times as fast as they can grow * Green Rizla papers are made from Hemp


The Gutenberg bible- the first book made on a printing press- was printed on hemp paper. Almost 600 years later, the pages are still in good condition. The original drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were also printed on hemp.
